    Hi, just uploaded a video guide to the basics of beat matching for the real beginner and those who recently joined the game with a DJ software/controller. Just for fun!

    If you ever get asked "what the hell is going on when you're touching the record and that slider next to it..."

    Cheers!:)

    one of the best explanations I`ve ever seen.
    It allows you seriously to explain the whole idea of beat matching ot "non DJs" that have no clou what you are doing with all the funny buttons and faders.

    finaly my girlfriend understood WHY in hell I can´t beatmatch hip hop and house on request as she likes :cool:


    thanks man!

    saved my ass for the new years eve party :D

    by the way: it would be perfect to have a video like this with the topic "quantized and not quantized music" as many guys do also not understand why it is so hard to mix rock (handmade) music with modern dance music.

    Cool video, is the Beat Sync button video available?
    Would love to see it, since us digital DJs take so much crap from other DJs about it. ...like I purchased a $900 controller (and recently a $4000 touchscreen controller) just because the ONLY button I use is the sync button.
    Hahahahaah yeah right!
