    Default Loops?

    So I'm just wondering, how often do you utilize looping in your sets? I know there are a wide variety of ways to mix.

    Myself I use 1200's and Serato. I also have dicers, which I use about 50% of the time. I tend to only use loops when mixing Drum and Bass, and sometimes hardstyle. I mainly spin breaks and /never/ use loops when I spin breaks.

    How about you guys? How do you utilize looping?

    I use it whenever I can to help with transitions mixing hip hop. I'll grab an instrumental loop and use that to blend one track into another.

    Being a Traktor guy, I'll use drum loops and stuff in the remix decks to keep a beat going between breakdowns or aid with some transitions, too.

    I use loops all the time. Hell, I could play an entire set with 4 songs and a shitload of looping.

    Minimal house "DJs" just use one track looped for 4 hours.

    Your mixes aren't that loop heavy unless you mean looping the outros and intros which isn't really that creative.

    They're more loop-heavy when I play live, it depends on the mood of the room as well.
