    hi my technique was to make short mixes and re-edits. like 7 minute mini mix. then i put the tracks on tracktor mix it using turntables to get the human element, re-record and edit and again. and rinse and repeat. and this is my mix tape. check it out

    i was having the same issues until I updated my flash player to 10.3 - http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

    The Big Daddy Kane example may still be pointing in the wrong location though…

    What’s up with all the bad vibers on this site? I hadn’t been here in a while and it feels like I came back to a totally different community. I recommend you peeps go watch Bambi again, pay close attention when Thumper’s mom says “What did your father tell you?” and Thumper clears his throat to recite “If you can’t say something nice… don’t say nothing at all.” (I have a 3 yr old running around the house all day, sue me) Either that or if you really dislike this site that much just don’t read the articles or even visit at all.Anyway thanks for the tutorial, I’m sure plenty of people that are starting out are going to be able to get plenty out of this. Free information of any kind is always welcome.

          I linked to a zip file with all of the audio files from this article in my comment further down if you guys want to grab it. I think it must be a browser compatibility issue, because all of the examples play for me in Opera. I will ask someone to look into it though to see if it can be fixed, cos without being able to hear all of the examples it’s not as good!

      Hi FTW,
      Thanks for the comment! I think the one “hater”, whose comments seem to have been deleted now, was just trying to rather unprofessionally promote a particular DJ school. The school itself looked great, but his style of posting was more a way of putting people off than attracting new customers, haha.

      While I have a lot of experience of DJing and making multitracked mixtapes (I’m 41, not an “inexperienced college kid” as that guy put it, lol), any constructive criticism on the article itself is always welcomed, because it can help me improve too.

      Thanks again,

    to be honest audition cant hold a candle to Ableton especially for this application, as not only can you figure outyour mulittack mix, and perfect it, but you can also play it live and do anything you want live as well.
    Max Graham is a great example of what kind of things can be done with a mulit track mix, and a midi controller. he blew my mind

      Hi Lynn_strait_up,

      I think Audition is very solid for this kind of work. While each piece of software will have its own plus and minus points, Audition gives you all of the tools you need to make a very complicated multitracked mixtape. For a live DJing situation though, I would agree with you totally. 

      Audition was only mentioned in this article because it’s what I use and it’s what I’ve been used to using for years, but while I’m very familiar with it, I certainly can’t claim that it’s “best” at any particular task as I haven’t used a lot of other software that can do a similar thing, but people can apply the things I’ve talked about to their software of choice hopefully.

      Inspiring people to give it a go was entirely my intention. I could go waaaay more in depth, but this was supposed to be an introduction to the topic and I already overran the article length by about 900 words, haha.

      Regarding DJ and production schools, they certainly have their merits and you can get hands on experience and ask questions and what not, but then the info in the articles on this site is free, while a DJ school will cost hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars to attend and not everyone can afford that, nor does everyone have a DJ/production school in their area.
