In just a few days’ time, we’ll be opening up our brand new video training course – The Acapella Mixing Masterclass. Designed to teach digital DJs how to mix properly with acapellas, it’s a valuable addition to our range of premium DJ training, and we’re really excited about bringing it to you.
It actually won’t be on public sale for several weeks yet. But for a limited time, we’re going to make it available privately to you, our site members – and at a huge discount of 45% on the public launch price. So watch your inbox for details of how you can grab your copy – and if you’re not on our mailing list, sign up now.
Why The Acapella Mixing Masterclass?
There are few better feelings in DJing than when you discover a perfect acapella mix – one of your favourite vocals slotted over an awesome instrumental track to give you an entirely new song. In key, in sync, perfect. It’s especially good when you get that feeling that you may be the very first person to ever have discovered the mix! It’s spine-tingling stuff and one of the real joys of DJing.
Always the “holy grail” of DJing back in the vinyl days, good acapella mixes instantly stand the few DJs who can do them out front the rest. And despite so many DJs struggling with this, the good news is that with digital, it’s actually a lot easier and more fun to mix acapellas. Things like key, BPM, keeping things in time, and tricks that go way beyond a “vocal over an instrumental” – all of these things are actually easier with digital DJ gear than with vinyl or CDJs.
Why is it that so many DJs continually tell us that they’ve given up trying to master this skill? That having performed a few terrible acapella mixes, they got frustrated and confused, and that even though they desperately want to learn to do this, they’ve decided it’s practically impossible?
So why is it, then, that so many DJs continually tell us that they’ve given up trying to master this skill? That having performed a few terrible acapella mixes, they got frustrated and confused, and that even though they desperately want to learn to do this, they’ve decided it’s practically impossible?
We realised it was just because if you don’t know what to practise or exactly how, even with digital, this is a skill that can be daunting. Where do you get good acapellas? How do you keep them in time with the backing track? How do you match the key? What makes a “good” acapella mix and a “bad” one?
And that’s what our new video course is all about. Designed especially for digital DJs, it teaches you everything you need to know to DJ with acapellas the modern way. Making full use of all available digital technologies (while still making sure you learn the right way – no lame shortcuts here), it takes you right from the very beginning through finding acapellas, preparing them, the principles of mixing with them, how to pick the right tracks to mix them with, how to key match them so they sound great, and finally how to perform digital tricks that vinyl DJs could only ever dream of.
What to do next
So here’s the deal. The course will be available privately later this week for a limited time, to our members only, and at a massive 45% discount on the public launch price.
After that, we’re taking it temporarily off the market so we can finish preparing the marketing material for the full “public” launch. The course itself, though, is now entirely finished – and so we wanted you to have a chance to get it first (at a much lower price).
All you need to do is watch your email inbox – we’ll let you know exactly when it goes on sale and how to get it. Remember, it’ll only be for a few days, so if you want it early and at the one-time only hugely reduced price, make sure you look our for that email – and if you’re not on our list, join now.
