    Default Advanced DJ (mixing) techniques

    Hi guys, this is my first thread on this forum.

    I've 'discovered' Harmonic mixing, with the camelot wheel.
    It helped me to make my sets more fluent and coherent etc, this was a few months ago so at the moment I'm searching for something new, something advanced, something which will help me adding that little extra to my (live) mixing performances and sets.

    So please, if you have any remarques, tips, websites, ANYTHING which could help me please post them below, thanks in advance

    I think that you've reached that level where you should start adding effects to your mix. What music do you play? Also analog or digital?

    Default Answer Stewe

    Hi Stewe

    I try to play music people of my age, which is 19, want to hear when they're in a club or at parties.
    Since electro house, deep house, house and trap are pretty big here in Belgium, I chose those genres to play.
    I've been 'experimenting' with simple FX (flanger, reverb, delay, beatmash, ...) before and came to the conclusion that it mostly doesn't make that much of a difference to the crowd (few people actually gave me negative feedback saying I destroyed the song).
    Although I cant't say I've been doing more research involving adding FX...
    I use NI's traktor s4 at home and mostly pioneer CDJ2000 and DJM2000 at clubs.

    Thanks alot for the response

    Obviously FX is a good choice here as another string to your bow. Or, depending on what you are mixing on , things like adding another controller for vocals and loops. Maybe an F1 for live remixing.

    Give us a little more info on what your current set-up is, and then you'll really start to see some answers.

    next level would be scratching and Live remix. Check out Laidback Luke he incorporates some scratching and turntable tricks in his sets or your can go the live production route. Check out DJ Enferno. good luck

    It would help to know what kind of style/styles you play, as that can have a big impact on where to go next.
