    Ah, Belt drives. Nothing like learning to mix on a crappy pair of belt drives. If you can mix on those you can mix on anything. Kids today, wanting to mix on nothing but a few 'numbers at the top'...Eee, I don't know.... don't know they're born, kids today....

    I can't see the waveforms, can someone please help me figure out where the bass part is? I can't see the song, so I'm not sure where the boom is.

    There are one of two explanations for this thread:

    1. OP is a robot and cannot "feel" music. Therefore, the robot must determine what a buildup is through information that it can process: waveforms, frequencies, beats, and amount of arm flailing in the crowd. Nice try, robot. The humans are onto you.

    2. OP is Paris Hilton.

    Mr. Amigos, where do you live? I will come by and tutor you for a weekend. Hopefully you are old enough to drink.

    There is definitely an element of truth in what you say for sure.

    IMHO: with all the software assistance and visual indicators, online forums, youtube videos etc etc, I still cannot work out some why some of the questions appear on here. I'm more than happy to help but really, honestly, ffs, do some people not bother to even to try to self help for an hour or so anymore?!! Really trying hard to avoid the whole 'in my day' argument.... but it was simply a case of getting stuck in to it, trying to learn off mates, club DJ's, go clubbing/free parties, meet people, mixtapes, record shops, listen to tunes etc etc etc etc....
