    Default Holy shit! I just amazed myself a bit.

    So I had to do this minimix for this thing. Had to be 15 minutes. Preferably spot on 15.
    So I just went into itunes chose 10 coherent songs and gave it a go. Just mixing as usual, nothing special.

    Now it really shocked me when I saw that I ran through my 10 songs in 12 minutes. I had no idea I mixed that fast.
    It was plesant surprise that made my day.

    So DJTT how fast do you mix ? Because now I do wonder.

    I keep adding songs and I keep getting 12 minutes. Shit's not even funny anymore.

    I'm at one song per minute now.

    depending on what and how you mix. i did mixes with 6-8 tracks/hour but also did some recordings with 25 tracks/10minutes

    Well for me it's beatmatch=> bring in the new track as smooth as possible with the EQ's => repeat

    and 25/10 minutes that was with sync or ableton or something right ? Or a mash up instead of a mix ?

    I did 8 songs in 5 minutes, but it wasn't on the first run it took me many many runs and practices.

    yup. that was with sync but not in ableton. but i can asure you that it´s not to hard to do quick mixes without sounding like you´re in a rush. for instance the minimix i did on my keyboard 4 years ago. i´m still amazed of how many tracks i did in this one

    I always end up with 12-13 tracks per hour. It's nice to know this, too. A few times I used this to roughly calculate for how long I must have played at some party - when my memory wasn't exactly of much help for determining this

    I have a similar golden rule: 5 songs in 20 minutes
    I mix a lot of progressive-house where I play the whole song, not just mix-in-->refrain-->next song.
    But it's interesting and a lot of fun to alternate between a few songs per hour and a bunch of songs in maybe even ten minutes.
