    sounds alright for a first mix, esepecially with just a computer. Next time though put a mark at all of the transitions.

    Also almost all DJ's beatmatch live. It might seem like a big hassle at first but after you start to get the hang of it it just gets easier and easier. Plus unfortunately you can't always rely on computers to read the music right. If you always use sync then you have to make sure that all of your songs are properly beatgridded.

    The whole idea of a mix is to do just that - mix the tunes together. So you're hearing different parts of 2 tracks playing at the same in a way that sounds good, so the whole thing flows. For example, you hear that bit at 17mins? that could be blended into another track very easily, using EQs so you don't have too much bass at any one time.

    What you've basically done there is to play tracks one after the other, occasionally using a turntable effect at the end. If that's all you do, you might as well just stick on iTunes.

    Also at 14.30 you had the volume turned down.

    with no equipment, don't bother beatmatching by ear. It's not worth it. Use sync, but learn how to use it properly.

    I would suggest that beatmatching without equipment is the ultimate challenge. For one to be a true master they should also turn off the monitor and invert the orientation of the mouse. That's pretty much the only way real men do it today.
