By 27 June 2015 655 Views No comments

A mixer is a tool used for DJ sets and mixes.

1. Loading multiple tracks into the DJ mixer is the first thing one must do.

2. The DJ then uses the mixer to create an overlap of two different tracks.

3. This overlap created generates a whole new sound and ambience of the known tracks.

DJs use mixers to add originality to their transitions between tracks. At some point of course, the playing track is going to end and silence is not acceptable at a party. For this reason, the prepared up and coming track next on the playlist must be brought in seamlessly. DJ mixers help the performer keep the flow of their DJ set going.

Some tactics are swift transitions by simply quickly jumping into the next track at the right time e.g. a drop or after a bridge. This can generate quite an effect for the crowd and usually results in many cheers when mixed well.
