    More of a stop start mix (never mixed in my life) of Instrumental Hip Hop.

    It's gonna be like 120mb for a 45 minute or so mix. Can I get the file size down somehow?

    What you mean?

    I'm doing it this afternoon. Barely any mixing. Just starting one as the other almost ends. I'm no DJ, just wanna share some tracks.

    You got me on that one haha but I only ever use it to try mixes out on mp3 cos I'm still in the stone ages and only ever play on cd's at nights.

    I have tried asinine different things to buttons on my keyboard though haha

    only problem is that it changes at .02, so if one deck is on 87.0 and other on 87.5 you won't be able to match it up without pressing sync because it'll go to 87.4 or 87.6

    Ableton is good for this kind of thing too, might be worth looking into.

    nothing beats vdj late at night when people are sleeping. Just each deck in an ear of your headphones and you're away :)

    this is correct... one must at first sync then click -/+ pitch to fine tune ,.. plus for all to sync well one should with every file b4 hand make sure the phase bar is correct to the track that your playing .. seen so many djs use this system and not do this and they wonder why with all the gear the still cant beat match even though they have sync'd the tracks ahaha terrrrwats ... Brofski just remember 4 beats to a bar / phase the 1st beat , sync the incoming track,drop it in on the 1st beat and woo pee doo , your now a beatmatching dj...now all you got to learn is if the tracks your using are in key and work together ... thats the bit that takes yrs....
