I am djing full-on Psytrance for a while. I got stuck on a point that i couldnt figure out.The problem is when i beatmacth & phrasematch (overlapping two tracks) in order to mix them, mid frequency instruments (especially kicks) clash and sound like they detonate(i don't know the term for bad sound for 2 instruments which clashes). The tracks i am trying to mix are in the same note(key). Bassline and the mid melody are harmonic, energy levels are equal, before and after the transition everything is ok but in the transition phrase (8-16 bars part) kicks clashes. I make transitions by using eq mixing.
first track is playing and each eq knobs are on 12 o'clock position.
i start second track when the first tracks has its last 16 bars.
i progressively increase hi and mid knobs of the second track from minimum to 10 o'clock position for 8 bars(everything is ok till the last 8 bars)
when hi and mid knobs of the second track reach 10 o'clock position and the last 8 bars of the first track start, kicks of the tracks begin to clash.
i switch hi and mid frequencies of the two tracks(first hi then mid) to prevent that clashing but when i do that mid melody of the first track is voluming down and kicks keep clashing at a lower volume
after that 8 bars which is full of clashing kick sounds i drop the bass of the second track and everything goes normal.
What do you think?
Am i trying to mix 2 tracks which are incompatible to be mixed or the clashing of kicks for 8 bars while mixing is acceptable?
