    typically if you're mixing between 33/45 there will be a big tempo swing, so beat matching may not be an option. I would just use a brake or some scratching between the two. I've also use the platter to speed up the slower song but that takes practice and luck to keep it on beat.

    I dont see a problem, I match them all day.......unless for example one record is 127bpm and the other 140bpm.........then thats different.

    The speed of the record has nothing to do with the BPM, so beatmatching works the same as it would for two 33 RPM records. The feel is a little different because one is spinning faster but it shouldn't be a problem beatmatching.

    great, 3 posts, and no one gave any advice on where i should be placing the pitchfader of the 33rpm to match the 45rpm speed. or how much to slow down the 45rpm record to match the 33rpm.

    the question wasnt, if its possible to beatmatch them, FML

    You're welcome. How's about we use some common sense. First, buy some turntables. Then buy some records. Put them on the turntables and begin to play.

    Here's where common sense comes in. If the rocord playing at 33 1/3 is slower than the record playing at 45, you should SPEED IT UP. If the record playing at 33 1/3 is playing faster than the one playing at 45, SLOW IT DOWN.

    Just so you are clear, with most turntables, lower the pitch by sliding the pitch control towards the tone arm. You will know you are doing it right when the record slows down.

    I've been doing it wrong all this time... I thought records are pressed at two different speeds to have a more detailed sound, and more room for error when beatmatching when pressed at 45rpm, or to fit more on a record when pressed at 33rpm.

    how wrong I must have been LOL
