@juwara Feel tough DickMunchingGypsy? x)

SlayerDarkRaver says:

Beucase when you slow down the pitch the track will still be off. It may be
in the same tempo but it will be ahead in timing, so you adjust the timing
with your finger 🙂 check out “ellaskins” if you need more beat matching
tips 🙂


@willricketts yeah but virtual dj is the first step of trying to learn it…

jamestoni says:

Beat matching comes natural to the ear after a while. just practice and it
will become clear.

DJKJSeph says:

No. Not really. For instance.. songs from kesha are what you describe. No
intro or outtro. I just use these types of songs after a slow song.

Spartan says:

what the hell man XD

moneymakr23 says:

dude, if you have serato scratch or some program like that, just match the
bpm using the pitch control, THEN use your head phones to determine the
beat placement with the beat on the other deck

juwara says:

@AndVarg Haha, asshole? Do everyone a favor, keep the comment section for
15-year and older.

Arman aka Carlos Regatta says:

How do you beat match two hip hop songs when there is pretty much lyrics on
the tracks 95% of the time?

TheAsianAppleGod says:

@SeanReyDJ Lol I’m sure if they had feelings, they’d hate you too.

Drop Cliff says:

@ReeveJonathanA and 5 is him smoking a joint.

allstar930 says:

I don’t think you can keep them together but they prob aren’t meant to be
kept together long. Hip Hop isn’t EDM. Start listening to Hip Hop dj
podcasts like at Brooklyn Radio and then mimic the way they just throw
songs in on the 1. Djing is all about picking good tunes anyway, don’t ever
forget that.

DeleteDj says:

the police, ambulance, and firetruck sirens synced up nicely with this, now

ears, no stupid software buttons 😉
