so.. i got a few questions. more like general questions, not being too specific i guess.
my issue is this: i always wanted to do a mixtape. it was basically the reason i started DJing at the Age of 15 or 16. however, when i started, i was like "nobody would listen to this, you can't scratch" so i started scratching. like 12 years later i did literally nothing else than scratching. now i finally would love to do this damn mixtape which i promised my younger brother 12 years ago. he's still waiting u know.
anyways. i know how to mix songs into each other with beatmatching and all this basic stuff. i am not too bad on the beatjuggling side either. however, i have like no clue how to do cool things on my Traktor Kontrol Z2.
Now i know that there are endless possibilities with a DVS mixer. I dont need 99% of them. However a few things would be cool, like mixing "instrumentals while the song/accapella is still running" - u know what i mean? hard to describe. i suck at describing things. but i caught a few DJs doing so.
Song A was running, and he mixed a new instrumental below the Song while the Voice was still running but the original instrumental ended.
and i'd love to make a cool intro containing samples of all/most of the songs that will be on my mixtape. what's the best way to do this? should i do this on Audacity or is there a cool way to combine short samples of like 5-6 seconds of each different song into one big intro? i have no idea what i have to look for when i want to google that stuff or check on youtube guides.
when i watch rafik, i cant get behind all the things he does.
anyway, if someone knows a few tricks or can add 1-2 videos on Youtube where i can catch these things i'd be really happy.
