Ok, so here it is... a thread for those of us into DJing. I'm sure some of us are pretty good and have been doing gigs successfully, where as some (like me) are just starting out. Hopefully Markus can come in and share some of his tips and tricks from time to time.
I'll start off with some very basics - Markus, do you use the crossfader at all when beatmatching?
I personally use the volume faders, intro the track at about 50% volume, and keep the bass low when I'm bringing it in but on many occasions I can't get the track to mix smoothly enough and I feel like I'm doing too much work when I'm mixing (fingers flying back and forth from the master volume and bass faders). Maybe the crossfader is a better choice?
Any thoughts on how to become more efficient?
