i use the UC33. i use the numbered buttons to launch each track, one knob to scroll through all the scene, one knob for tempo. then various knobs for various things.also use an mpd for various things. its a crazy set up, you can do alot with it


do you do like A to B mixing but just using the volume sliders? And do you have to manually prewarp all of your tracks in ableton before you play them?

volume sliders, i leave the opportunity to leave 5 parts running at once in a bunch of places. that way I can switch into numerous songs. with numerous entry points and loops. ableton makes asd files which contain all your warp data so if you put it in and warp it once it stays that way. then you can bring all the stuff back in real easily. you can warp alot of stuff easily if you just know the bpm and then find one solid beat, just put your beat marker there and then set it. its not that bad at all even on the fly, some songs are however tricky and you should do in advance.

how to change up songs with diff BPM

EX - song one is 130 bpm, song 2 matched at 130 bpm, then song 2 is now like song 1 - so its an endless loop of 130 BPM

i want to learn how to go from, lets say, x bpm to y bpm, but have it sound nice & fluid?

Any advice?

PS - I'm just starting and experimenting & learning basics on virtual DJ for now.

im just starting djing...right now im just going to friends' houses to mess with their set-ups to get a feel for it. so far im leaning more towards trakktor, but i dont know if i should buy a mixer and tables or just get like a vestax vci-100 midi controller. i dont really want to throw down a grand for a good mixer/tables setup...so if i do get tables and a mixer, ill prob want to upgrade later on. should i just go with a controller for now? and if so, which one?

The VCI's a pretty solid choice. DJtechtools has some good tutorials and mapping files for using it in cool ways. You can always expand your setup with other controllers later on if you decide you want to change your style around.

to be honest i've never played a "hip" enough club with it to have to worry about that. I don't even dj that often to be honest, and i've used traktor sometimes as well. that being said, i think i'm pretty good (listen to past mixes of mine if you can) on it and have a decent set up and routing that I can do different stuff with it everytime.

do you mean the synth? or the "yeah" sound.

the beatrepeat on the synth stuff is all with "effectrix" most likely and the yeah sound is most likely using the vst called "unique" or a vocoder,
