    Default DJ Mixing Techniques

    So I've been looking around on the web for really good information on all of the different mixing techniques and I can't really find anything good except for a youtube video telling me to go to college to learn about it... Here's the thing... This is a passion of mine and I love doing it but I don't have the money to go to New York and learn so are there any websites, books, youtube videos, anything so that I can teach myself all the modern mixing techniques and scratching techniques and what not?? For example using chained effects, harmonic mixing, how to do remixes on the fly, dropping on the one... basically all the techniques they talk about in this video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZJhQuF97Lg

    Just without the college... Any info will be greatly appreciated

    Read all the old archive articles on the blog. There are loads and they're very useful (and free).

    www.mixingguide.com if you want to learn some basic transitions and some beatmatching skills. Guy loves trance but it can be applied to a range of genres.

    Also for scratching on YouTube look up DJ Angelo.
    The old blog articles and videos have a lot of that stuff in there. Ean has one video that gives you 5 ways to transition.
    Google the Camelot system for learning about mixing in key.

    Rapid evolution or your ears and a keyboard.

    I tried using my ears and a keyboard... I got the root note fine but I couldn't find the dam scale...

    I wish I knew how to do a keyboard to do it, I'd feel so much more legit... You should buy Mixed in Key, it works like a charm for me... There's some irritating stuff you have to do to get it to write the key to the ID3 tag of the mp3, but they have a pretty good guide on the website. For harmonic mixing I definitely recommend it.
