Great job on the video Terry!! Keep them coming! I personally like this addition to the forums.
Now, Now Vintage, don’t get all Jealous. We have nothing but love for you too. LOL
That would be great. I know I would be very appreciative of the time you spend doing such a training.
KEEP ME POSTED AND THANKS.
I too love Trance and am interested in some of your transitions. You probably explained it real well but I am a little confused. I have the masterclass and did not see these in there.
Can you help me out and elaborate a little bit for me?
Site looks great!!! I have a question though, how do I change my user name?December 8, 2013 at 4:36 pm in reply to: One Hour Trance Set (Club Millennium 15th Anniversary) #1017577
Great set!! I love to play Trance but am still a newbie. I was hoping you would provide me some tips. Are you editing any of the tracks you play? If so which program are you using? Or are you just mixing break over break like in your first transition? Eqing? Any tips would be much appriciated.
Thank you very much.
Thank you silvercue. I am going to keep playing around with the various ways of mixing.
Also, thanks for telling me that there are a lot of us that play the music the way we play it. I get a little disheartened when I listen to like Markus Schulz and cannot recreate that awesome sound.
would I lower the volime on the outgoing track at that point or use the eq’s? I am still learning how to apply the eq’s.
For the most part I get what you are saying, aside from the songs working well together, I should have them phrased correctly so that the sweet spot hits right at the same time as the outro. Correct?
I like AVB and Markus Schulz. I enjoy playing their music. I from the old school, before there were all of these genres of music. I had the pleasure of going to one of the last storm raves by Frankie bones. The music is still good but some of these producers just plain suck. A lot of the music sounds the same. i am pretty selective of what tracks I buy. It can take me some time when I crate dig. I have started to mix in some techno tracks as well. They work nicely with trance. What type of music is your go to genre terry?
Well said D. I agree with you on all counts. I just miss when the music and the scene as a whole was still underground. I enjoy playing the music for me, how I like it to sound. I too enjoy being a hobbyist DJ. I never want to view it as work. I think all the fun and enjoyment would be gone of that were the case. I enjoy making mixes for my friends and fam, and getting their feedback as well. I just needed to vent a bit.
First and foremost, thank you Terry42 and D-Jam, you guys along with Chuck have always been a great resource for help to me.
Now I will go on my rant (please feel free to correct me if I have any wrong info):
What I find to be frustrating is that when I listen to some of the “Rockstar DJ/Producers” they seem to use their skills as producers to create these amazing sounding sets using edits of songs they made in the studio. Please forgive me but I don’t feel that is DJing. That is producing. It sounds real great and all but a typical dj cannot create that sound unless you have the programs and the production skills to do so. In my opinion, it has changed the entire club/festival scene. Now they are just playing edits and not doing much mixing. I might be a little old school because I feel as a dj you should play the music and build a groove on the dance floor, not just play the “big” parts of songs. I personally like to dance to the dance music and with all of this edit playing shit going on, it seems all people can do is fist pump and jump up and down. Whack!! is what it is. It sounds great and all but I just feel it has changed what people expect of a dj. Okay, I am done now. I do feel a little better having said that. So D, I agre with you about prepping the set. I do in fact do that.
Please visit my mixcloud page. I have a mix posted there and would love some feedback. It is Mixcloud.com/anthonylewis.
Thanks all!! Have a great holiday and safe Holiday season!!!
You are the best!!! Thank you for all of your help. We are moving to a larger space soon and I will be able to set up in a spare bedroom(super excited about this) these seem to be what I am looking for. Thanks again. I will keep you posted and send a picot my set up once we get to that point.
