  1. This guy needs to learn where the pitch fader is to get the tracks in time, instead of fannying around with the jog wheels constantly!! Oh and there are 3 EQ knobs, not just the low… πŸ™ˆ

  2. Nice use of the FX, thank you for sharing some interesting ideas ! Not enough proper “mix” for me though (mix as for mixing a band for example, when you use EQs 😊)…

  3. Can someome explain me how can i make use of the TIME FX KNOB if i have a pioneer SX? i dont know if you can understand what i try to ask ; i really love the effect it makes with the sound color fx but i dont have that knob on my equipment!

  4. those beat counters makes mixing easy as fuck…..Nobody use ears those days πŸ™‚

  5. The video is helpful for beginner level DJing but not for intermediate and pro level.
    My honest feedback is: (correct me if there is a mistake)
    13:36 . It doesn’t sound good to use pitch like that.
    15:23 tracks are awfully beatmatched because you didn’t actually do beatmatching.
    There is not even one harmonic transition.
    It is good to give filters on breaks. I like it.
    It is nice to do “double drops”
    There are a lot of “unbeatmatchings”. It does not look professional
    Why did you entered the second track at the chorus of the first track? Isn’t it so early? We don’t normally do that
    For me, it is a mixing technique again and again, I only saw 2 mixing techniques. 19:56 was nicer one

  6. Wow….πŸ™ŒπŸ‘πŸ”₯🎢first ever set i’ve listing to the end well done…πŸ’ͺ
