What does everyone try to avoid as far as differences in BPM?
what do you mean exactly?
I heard 12 bpm is the limit some place.
Honestly I don't have much more to contribute
I mean what is the cut-off before you struggle to keep something beat-matched becuase there is to great of a difference between to two tunes your mixing. Like one being 170 bpm and another being 180 bpm.
I know what you mean, but do not know the answer, pick another record maybe
I dont think there is one, as long as the I can change the pitch enough to match them then I can mix two records together
do u mean if sumfins at 140 an sumfins 170 will the pitch be able to move enuff so they beat match?
obviously depends on the type of decks, if you have 8% pitch control or like on the numark tt500s which have 10, 20 and 50% adjustable pitch controls you can beat match a 140 tune up to 170. i guess it also depends on how fast you can beat match them, and whether you mind having the slower tune 'chipmunked' if you know what i mean!
or there always swtchin the faster one to 33
its logical mate...if your record is 175bpm and your decks go from -8 to +8 % then the max u can mix with it is [175 + 8% of 175] and the slowest is [175 - 8% of 175]..
actually if your record is 175bpm and your decks go from -8 to +8 % then the max u can mix with it is [175 + 16% of 175] and the slowest is [175 - 16% of 175] cos you can have one on +8 and one on -8. correct me if im wrong?
I don't just mean when are you capable of mixing them. I mean is there a point when two records are no longer compatable because there is too much of a range of difference because of tempos.
im pretty sure evrything is mixable as long as it has a constant tempo.
if u can slow one thing down enuff or speed it up enuff it will mix
not necesseraly gonna sound good but still beat matches
just wont necessarily sound good lol
man that post mashed itself up for sum reason!lol
this is true...i didnt think that far into it lol
I think the time you have issues keeping two tracks beatmatched is the time you choose new tracks to mix.....
wait for next time nick griffins on question time and join the audience???
i think that depends on the systems you're spinning,
if you use pioneerCDJ1000 you have a very wide pitch, so you can mix any most experimental Bpm tune u have
i dont know about extreme vinylplayers but i dont think their pitch goes as wide, so it sometimes aint possible to mix two tracks on vinyl or not so good cdj-players
hope that answers your question
