    Done.

    How hard was that? If you don't even have the confidence to do that at home, what makes you think you are ready to play out?

    I think dope was saying that if your only contribution to a thread is posting the word 'weak' then you're not being hugely helpful, and may do better keeping your opinions to yourself.

    I think its a confidence thing - if you've not done it before, DJing out when you really give a shit about sounding good can be damn scary. My first sets were fairly well planned out before I started, and over a time I ended up building things on the hoof. Thesedays I usually have no idea what I'm going to play with about 5 minutes to go before my first track ...

    I kinda started skipping posts after a bit as things degenerated into being the complete opposite of helpful, but fwiw I can understand you wanting a "safety net" in having a set all planned out before your first gig, and even if there are "veterans" on here who tell you not to, you'd be surprised at how many veterans also had their sets planned out when they were just beginning. Confidence and knowledge of your music is what you need as previously pointed out, but I also find that marking out the busy parts of tracks with cues (I use fade in and fade out markers as I don't use them anywhere else) as a sort of "shit will clash badly at this part" kind of warning (usually it's the melody). That way I know to chuck in a safety loop, or prepare to throw in a bunch of stupid fx to transition, to stop two busy parts of tracks from clashing. Might be helpful for you. Might not.

    Again, two completely unhelpul and rude posts.

    If you're only intention is to flame the op, then I suggest you stfu and keep it to yourself.

    Although I agree with youfreestyle mixing isn't rocket science and planning a live set (for a crowd) isn't the way to go about djing. But everyone learns different.

    To the op. Leave your tracks & the beat jump feature is yourfriend.

    Otherwise you can't go that wrong if you drop a tune on the 1 and use effects to get out instead of trying to hit the drop.
    god damnit boy, as I said in my first post I look at the waveform so i know if I'm nearing the end of a song. listen to no beef - afrojack around the end it picks up and then drops off and feels like the song is about to end but then it gets even heavier in cases like this I uses the 30 second reminder (how the waveform flashes when you near the end of a track) to tell me when the track's going to end. next time try not to put words in my mouth.
