    Easy all.

    Just a couple of quick questions about using Accapella's whilst mixing... Does it work?! Such as if i downloaded the Hospital Acapella's that were released last year could i use those every now and then in a set just for the hell of it with a fair amount of ease? Even if its just for a couple bars or so?

    Also, any good places to get some good, high quality Accapellas?

    Cheers !

    It's so easy it's practically boring. Great way to start a set though...heavy tune into beautiful accapella!

    It depends on the structure of the accapella I guess. The Hospital one's should be ok though.

    IMHO--the hospital accapellas cd is the worst purchase ive made since i started buying d&b, and i wanted to like it, it strictly did not deliver, save your money

    I use Reggae/Hip-Hop Accapellas all the time in Reggae, Hip-Hop & D&B sets...

    Love it, such a versatile tool for varied BPM sets & also a very good way to master 3 + deck mixing.
