This topic has been in my mind recently, unless SOMEONE does SOMETHING about it, NO ONE will. I'm looking at putting together some kind of training workshop in the new year. If you want to learn the basics of mixing, get in touch in January. We'll see what we can do.


Anyone have a free venue near my house? laugh.gif

I would be interested in learning. Where abouts are you and would you be teaching mixing on CDs?

Thanks

Right! As sorting out a venue costs, and getting people together is not easy, I think the best way forward is this: If YOU want to learn how to mix, I can give you the necessary training, and show you how it works. II will ask you to come to my house one weekday evening in Horsham with your weapons, and show you how to get the most of it. If a load of people want to learn, then Marc and I can hire a venue, put in some gear and run a workshop, but this will cost you.

This work shop sounds a great idea, myself and my fiancee Emma will both definately be interested. Possibly another 2 members of our company too. We mainly do Karaoke events, and we use a self-mix pc programme at the moment for Disco's, but Marky Marcs display at the SEDA meeting back in November has had me hyped up to learn how to mix!

I hate using the PC, but until I've learned and practiced how to mix, I certainly wont feel confident doing it any other way. In all honesty though, it is my opinion that PC software for mixing compared to live mixing is absolute rubbish. For the moment at least.

So, bring on the work shop!

1 thing though... how much cost are we talking?

Could we do a performance based pay system. E.g, you turn me into the best mixing DJ in the world, and I'll pay u a one-ner?

or, if i learn nothing, ill pay u nothing? lol

No one is asking for any payment as yet...

just sort out your time so that you can visit at regular intervals and learn something.....
