    Default New Psychedelic Trance Mix. Opinions!!!

    So i'm new to mixing, thought id post up a ruff draft of some work i did tonight.
    Feel free to leave some constructive criticism.
    I don't have my mixer at the moment, this is just my laptop and traktor pro 2.

    Thank you,
    ExTrCt.

    ExTrCt I had a listen. The track selection is cool, but i find there is lots of added fx going on. Bare with me. Psy has so much already in really in high production fx that traktor's stand out dramatically. And you used alot of them. Just my 2 cents. Maybe because it's only half hour mix you've gone to town. Try more harmonic mixing so you can have two songs playing together for a longer period. also samples if you want to add more of your own flavour. Otherwise good and look forward to hear more from you
    It's not the gear. It's how you use it.
    limitations are the source of creativity.
    If you don't practice you don't want it.

    yeah i did add a lot of different effects. Am i not suppose to do that?

    can you explain harmonic mixing? I would like to learn what you mean.

    You want me to play both tracks at the same time?

    I wish you lived close so i could learn from you in person. Im such a newbie with no trainers..

    agreed. try stretching the transitions out to about 2 minutes with psy and go easy on the effects. if you can nail that aspect you are on the right track also the last tune seems about 3db too quiet by the looks of it. keep it up mate. get some 60 min mixes together and send them to my group.
    cheers!

    I have 3 sound clouds. I can only upload 1 hour and 20 minutes per account. Which isn't a lot of time.
    If i get good then i can upgrade my accounts to more time. But I'm just learning so i thought id use the free sound cloud accounts.

    So i made bunch of accounts so i can upload more songs.
    Im out of time on all my accounts lol. I'll probably delete that mix and start over.
    Thanks for the video, appreciate it.


    Thanks jester, do you live in salt lake city? Temple of boom was an event here in salt lake city. Maybe we can meet up and teach each other some mixing.
