    Default So you messed up in the middle of your set!!!

    Im doing my first little friend gig on halloween right...

    I got a pretty rad set that Im going to do, I got it all planned out and practiced.
    Only thing is, Even sometimes I mess up during my practice section.
    Is it bad that I have an exact one and only point where I throw in my next track???
    Because every once in a while, I will throw it in one beat after or forget that I don't have the same bpm before I start the next track.

    What do you do when this happens to you?

    I don't plan everything, I plan about 10-15 minutes so I have something to get comfy with and then completely improvised from there. not sure if that was helpful or not.

    Yeah I haven't quite grasped how to freestyle mix yet : (

    - Oh does traktor have a thing that can measure bars?

    I try to get drops to line up with eachother and If they had a way you could do that I would probably be able to freestyle mix.

    count the beats and drop on 16 bars after the second breakdown or the last quarter of the track... it normally all works out ok if you do that

    Nope....thats how the formula works.

    In techno (4 to the floor), a bar is 8 beats. (some like to say 4 ...some 16).

    Knowing your measures just comes down to practice; after a while, you don't even count, you just know...

    No, it's 4 beats.
