intro/outro mix question

Recommended Posts

I have been messing around trying to mix out of a song. However the part I choose to mix in the song doesn't start on same pharse. Is that acceptable for into/outro mix?

what I mean is I counted 5 bars from a point I thought would sound right.

is all that matters that the beats are lined up at same tempo and it sounds ok?

maybe doesn't make sense I can post up the song and times with pictures later when I get home.

Basic phrasing is 16 bars. 16 bars at 128bpm is ~30secs. If you're playing house or electro genres with a consecutive kick structure you can usually start mixing your next track right from the drop from the track that's playing. Be sure to know your tunes because it helps to know when you can start your transitions

If you have loop capable gear you could cut the bass and part of the mids out and just get a loop going right before the main drop. Then when you want to transition, turn the loop off, drop the bass and mids as required, and let the new track kick in.

Well there you have it. Didn't think there were any books for this

I bought this book when it first came out.. must've been around 2001 time I think.

 

Was a good read. Sure I still have it lying about somewhere.
