All I can say is that you have to learn to move it at exactly the right time, by exactly the right amount (USUALLY NOT VERY MUCH AT ALL! SMALL MOVEMEMENTS KEEP YOU IN CONTROL!)

And you also have to learn to become very responsive to any changes where a mix starts to go out of sync

The moment you let things slip and start to get out of hand your job becomes alot harder

If you can catch the mix as soon as it starts go out, and make the proper adjustments, EVENTUALLY, you will get it perfect and the tunes should stay pretty locked for a while!

And last but not least ...

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

You go from big adjustments to small adjustments until you're just tweaking and getting closer and closer to the perfect pitch.

it helps alot when your learning if you know roughly where the pitch adjuster should be before you start moving it.

I wouldn't advise ever touchin the 45 or 33rpm button whilst tryin 2 mix 2 tunes together lol

My advise to you would be to learn how to do everything just using the pitch

Don't ever touch the vinyl or anything, just use the pitch, it'l force you to learn how to use it to mix tightly

Best way forward

if you have a pitch reset button which takes the pitch back to zero

i dont think its good practise do use this though (n)

you can do this if the tune is really running off at a rate followed by a big pitch shift. it does work and i do use it sometimes but if you're struggling with pitch riding then this is probably just gonna fuck you up more mate
