whats the best way to overcome this problem? Thats the one thing i dread more than anything
There is no way to overcome this, just have to struggle through. But I can tell you now its a fucking nightmare
Decent set of headphones would help slightly but generally its just a struggle on through like nuera says!
I fucking hate not having monitors.
you gotta use your headphones man i got a pair of hd485s and they are nowhere near loud enough for playing on a big system
decent headphones... start with the tune your bringing in on its own in the cans, then bring in both so you can hear both tunes to finish off... it's not that bad, ive done it a few times!
Yeah its possible to use just headphone, but make sure you got some decent ones first
Ear plugs + mixing in headphones. You'll have to have it so loud you'd be foolish not to protect your hearing. Don't wanna be deaf by 30!
Duno if its just me but I mix pretty much purely on headphones anyway, find it much more accurate, not hard at all once you get used to it.
Yeah i mix in the headphones too.
buzzin m8 4t i was the only one lool
Do you need monitors for a small house party? About 4 meter x 4 meter room?
Thinking of doing one soon and don't want to have nightmares!
dont worry, at house parties u can just fade tracks in / out anyway lol
ps. make sure you get some pussy
i did a dj comp few weeks ago at a bar in town. when i got there i asked the guy where the monitor speaker was and his reply was ...."errm, there isnt one, there is a bass bin down there".
it wasn't too big so i survived.
I had a similar sort of thing at a DJ comp once as well... except they did have monitors but they had blown.
If I wasn't nervous enough! lol
I just mixed through the head phones and it went fine. (I won the first round but went out in the second, I was playing Garage and they blatently wanted a house DJ as the final winner.)
i played at a gaff where they only play house and trance, took a bag full of dylan n limewax. emptied the gaff. didnt get through for some reason
Practice mixing in your headphones until you can get it tight.
not good at all but iv only had this once, still not happy like
Split Cue if the mixer has it!!
You can set 1 headphone to be playing the main mix and one to play the channel your cue'ing. Basically recreating a proper monitor system, mixing with both headphones on
Pioneer DJM mixers do this
I heard D-Bridge uses shure earphones or something.
the in ear ones?
Is it worth getting a pair? I wanna be able to block out most of the noise from the soundsystem ect so i dont have to have my headphones up too loud.
I'd love it if places had split cueing. I tend to use the gain to check things and take it to nothing and bring it up to get the same effect. I've only DJd out a few times at open decks/comp
