Start the new year fresh with a selection of the best “liquidstep” (dubstep) from 2011 mixed harmoniously. Even though my gear didn’t really comply to my bidding, I managed to cram 35 songs in 70 minutes. Using digital vinyl mixing, this is a nice speed, especially when you’ve never mixed these tracks before.
The most difficult thing on mixing liquidstep are the overflowing melodies: mixing them in key requires some software tricks. I prefer avoiding trickery, in this case its the most feasible alternative though. The picture on the right shows recorded audio.
Later this year it’s time to change gear. Vinyl mixing has been great. I wanted to learn how DJ’s mixed together their songs back in the days. Using turntables and a mixer teaches you the basics the hard way: no sync button, having to do with the various discs and mastering on them.
I want to start focussing on digital mixing: i expect a boost in creativity and using things such as queue points, syncing and more use of filters and effects. Vinyl mixing still will be important to me, for example when playing early house tracks. To me, digital mixing gives a new dimension.
Enjoy this 70-minutes digital-vinyl-mixed liveshow!
