So I’ve been toying around with a ton of ideas for DJing, making remixes, sampling, etc. Lot of stupid ideas, lot of fun ideas but way out of my skill range (as of now).
Anyway, I wanted to get into what it would take to do this. My friend Kaye the Beast has a track from his album SALT that I thought could fit in with “She Drives Me Crazy” from Fine Young Cannibals, so I threw this together in 15min:
Not terrible, right??? Granted, I did this in Final Cut Pro X (a video editing program) instead of something where I can better equalize the audio mix, but still it works.
I also started slowing creating playlists for me to eventually start mixing together to make some DJ sets. I probably won’t actually get into the mixing part until I get a controller (spoiler alert: won’t happen until we move later this year), but at the very least I can get familiar with controller software like Digital DJ or Serato.
