Now for this tutorial we’re gonna need 3 things
1. A Laptop
2. DJ Software which you can download legally or illegaly
3. And songs you know in and out (this is very important)
Now with that said. Let’s begin.
Software Over View:
Now for this tutorial w’ere going to use Rekordbox DJ. DJ softwares are quite similar. As long as they have an internal mixing section, then you should be good to go.
Let’s set up ours:
So there 5 steps:
1. Display the Mixer Section
2. Set the Crossfader Curve to Smooth by Dragging the knob all the way to the left side
3. Make Sure that the Crossfader Assign Section is Set to Deck 1 and Deck 2
4. Position the crossfader to the first deck which is on the left side,
5. Activate Sync and Quantize ( I know..controversial. but I don’t give a ***)
Song Over View
Here are 2 things to keep in mind when it comes to the songs you’re going to use:
1. Make Sure You Know them,
So that’s knowing how many beats the intro and outro are, and knowing when and where to mix the song,
because if you don’t. It’s gonna sound pretty amateur, **skit***, you don’t want that.
2. Make sure that the first cue point is set to the first beat of the song
And We’re now ready to start mixing.
So here are the 4 steps to start mixing
Load the first song to the first deck, and play it, this will now be known as your current song
Load the next song in the second deck and, this will now be known as your Next song
Wait for the outro section of the current song, once you reach it, play the next song
Drag the crossfader from the current song to the next song
“and now you’ve just mixed for the first time.”
To mix more, do steps 2 to 4 but this time alternating from deck 2 to 1, and vise versa,
And congratulations, you’re DJ’ing.
I’ve included the songs I used in this tutorial, so you can practice with them at home. Good luck!
Now, this video is made for beginners who want to try DJ’ing but simply don’t have the equipment to.
I made this video so that beginners, will at least get familiar with DJ’ing, and to hopefully help them better decided if this is the hobby or career they would want to invest in.
In no way am I saying that Laptops and DJ softwares are better than the real thing. I’m simply encouraging beginners to pick up the hobby with what they currently have.
Not having equipment is not a valid excuse to try DJ’ing.
So to the beginners who are watching, if you want to DJ for real, invest in real DJ equipment, and learn how to beat match manually.
This tutorial is made for you to help you start DJ’ing right now.
Sorry guys, no more excuses.
