New tutorial for more advanced mixing!!!
If u going to mix one song an still you want it to make it sound as a whole song in 30 seconds you need to keep in mind:
3. Beats/ Tempo
If you going to mix several songs:
1. Use same style if remixed version if Dubstep, then all remixes should be of same style, if Trance then all trance and so on.. Can be some exception if the beats and the melody match perfectly.
2. Lyrics, several songs can be of different mood of lyrics as hate, love, fun and so on. Matching lyrics is important, you won’t like your mix to sound ridiculous or with no sense.
3. Match between melodies of songs the best you can.
Sometimes mixing one song can be harder than several songs, so try to do a fluent piece much as possible. So you’ll have a start, a middle and and end.
Many parts its required only when u have too many changes of melody in a song, so yes, if you want to be accurate try to cut more, i suggest to cut between 4-5 seconds each part as max but of course if the melody requires more dont take it as a law.
Use the zoom in to get accurate in cutting/ matching.
Fading in and out in the start and in the end of a part doesnt make them perfect, they really need to sound like a start and an end.
Things you mustn’t do:
1. Dont start from the middle of a sentence of a song.
2. Dont end the part with a new melody starting or when the singer is almost starting singing again and you can hear his breath.
Ok now for the technical part, I dont use the tools fade in or fade out, you cant re-arrange a fading later when you rework on a part, I use the ‘Envelope Tool’ BEST tool ever.
*You might need to cut and re-cut while mixing, always save in other numbers, don’t rewrite files you think you might not use because were bad in the 1st place, maybe in the 2nd or 3rd round they’ll be useful.
* While matching parts side to side try to see if the ‘curves’ from the upper end tip of the track and the start tip of the follow track are a bit similar (using the Time Shift Tool) like in here:
You can import all the parts you cut in the short way, just mark them all n drag them into the audacity window.
When clicking the Envelope tool you’ll see your tracks getting blue edges and your cruiser will look like tweezers, you ‘pinch’ the inner part you want to get bent and you’ll get like a white dot (Pointer 1) , then you’ll ‘pinch’ the outer side, tip of the track (Pointer 2).
After that you put the dot between the tweezers and you’ll use it as ‘handle’ to drag the tips of the track as you wish and make the fading yourself.
* To remove a dot you put the dot between the ‘tweezers’ and drag upward.
* Always work with the dots of the upper part
* For challenges or for later (screenshot, parts you used and re-work) the best is to save the project, the software will produce 2 files: .aud file and _data file put them in a folder with the name of the mix you making, along with the parts you using so won’t be messy.
* Exporting parts: Be neat and name them in short, if same song with different version write the dj name in short and -1, -2 etc.., in the end. That will help you while uploading originals for challenges.
* Hear several times between transitions (end of a part and start of the following part). Use the Selection Tool and put before every transition and check if it sounds smooth, try to make the fading bigger or smaller, play with it till you hear it sounds the best for you.
Hope this will help you all. For questions you’re welcome to post in here and contact me.October 21, 2013 at 5:48 pm #32798
