N00b here and I have an easy question for you guys as I am not sure if I am doing this right. When I'm mixing two tracks I typically do the following: 1) set the incoming track gain so that it's in the top of the green level, maybe slightly in the orange. 2) beatmatch everything and then I typically will drop the bass completely on the incoming track and turn down the highs to maybe 9-11 o clock (usually don't touch mids) 3) using the channel fader I bring the track up (I don't use the cross fader) but here where the problem is. With the incoming tracks bass cut and highs lowered, once I bring my channel fader up maybe half way my master starts to jump into the high yellows. My question: Is that bad? I don't play out yet but I've read about places where they don't want you going that high on the master and I can understand that. Is there a better way to do this? How is it possible to have two tracks playing , both faders all the way up, without the master peaking? Or even with double drops...wouldn't that automatically clip the master? Or should I never have both channel faders at max level. I'm using a Pioneer DJM 700 also, if that helps. Any help is appreciated!
