    Thank you ADE and Vintage, I really appreciate you taking r=the time to both give me some good advice. I am going to take it slow as I do not need to rush this at all. I am definitely going to look at some compilations for the classics. Vintage, I would never work for free or exposure as they say, lol. I have some skills and I know what they are worth.

    Thanks again guys!

    I agree with D-jam on all of his points. I play mostly progressive trance and tech trance and sprinkle in some techno. I prefer to mix towards the end of the track as trance have lots of layers of sounds that evolve over time and if you try to mix too soon in a track it could sound like a mess.

    Hi Snake,

    I just checked and the files are read and write. I have no idea how to identify which one’s are bass or which are kicks. In Traktor each one just says the title which is studio essentials. So frustrating.

    I agree with you Vintage, I was messing around with the pitch faders last night and did notice an audible difference in the sound. I use serato DJ and have Pitch & time. This audible difference is what prompted me to start this thread.

    I just checked out just4djs.com, It has some nice remixes but I am suspect of the quality. There is no info on the site at all.

    This is a great topic. I was actually going to ask this question today. I use beatport for Trance and house. I was going to ask because I want to start doing some mobile work and though itunes was my only option.

    Thank you Deathy! That is actually real good feedback. I like playijg that style for that exact reason. Since Trance is going through a transition period, I like they way it had combined with some electro and progressive house sounds. It is my favorite style to play.
    Thanks again for taking the time to listen.

    Older music has real drums and is not as mastered and compressed as today’s music, therefore software like SDJ has trouble picking up the transients. You will have to manually set the grid using warp markers. It will be a bit tedious but it can be done. Is there a specific issue that you are running into?

    I really appreciate your honesty. I take it as both a compliment and useful feedback. Here is what I find though, and maybe you can help or not, I can only find this type of trance sound from mainstream producers. Do you happen to know of a website that may have something a little more underground?
    I am also in the middle of earning a Abelton Certification. I would like to be able to create my own edit’s to help with originality.

    Thanks again for your thoughts!

    HAHA!! I like the Trouse sound. I like uplifting trance as well but i prefer to play this style. All things considered, did the mix sound good? Danceable?

    Thanks for taking some time to listen. I do like Coldharbour, collectively the producers signed to that label have a sound that works for me. I do play and purchase from other labels and producers. No, it is just the first time I posted a mix publicly.
    Trouse might not be your genre. lol

    Thanks again!
