    personally i find keeping to one style quite boring, my style is kind of a mashup of house/electro/fidget/techno/breaks/grime/speed garage/dubstep/bassline.

    we’re speaking about what you personally find fun to mix, and I dont go to or play at nights as specific as that.

    when using turntables does the pitch of the record change when you adjust the speed/tempo of the track? on some cdjs it does, on others it doesnt..

    most pioneer cdjs have a master tempo on them were you can adjust the speed of a track without changing the pitch

    I’m sure I’ve seen decks with “pitch correction” on them .. I’m guess this may be what you’re talking about actualy – never used a set that have this on them tho so don’t know exactly what it is.

    some have that feature, not used it on other cdj’s but the ‘key correction’ function on mine are only really good for about 8% correction before you get a jittery sound, especially when its rasing the pitch on a tune thats been slowed down.

    once you get to about 12% you definitely wouldnt wanna be playing out and using the effect.

    i have alot of fun mixing my mates grime, garage and dubstep, but mainly cos its a break from what i usually mix, his bassline terminator remix is jokes, alwasy makes me laugh

    Techno is by far my favorite but I play house, minimal, and ambient on occasion as well.

    Here’s a set I recorded for Electrosouls.net a while back
    Here’s a clubby house mix I recorded earlier this year
    Here’s audio from the Halloween edition of my radio show URL=”http://www.antonbanks.com/audio/the_vault_10-20-10.mp3″%5DHorror stories set to ambient[/URL URL=”http://www.antonbanks.com/audio/the_vault_10-20-10_set.mp3″%5DAmbient set alone[/URL

    Not much of a choice for me. I would much rather use vinyl but it’s too expensive. I’m in the US but most of what I play comes from Europe. Shipping kills it for me. It costs close to $15 USD for a record versus maybe $1.50 for the mp3. The other part of it is that most labels don’t send vinyl promos anymore. I switched to Traktor so I could use what I am sent.

    Pitch correction means when changing the tempo of a track it keeps the pitch but the time/bpm changes. Using a mathamatical equasion that corrects the pitch depending on how much faster or slower you play the record and keeps the same tone. This is know as time stretch with pitch correction.

    You allso have pitch adjust with time correction .. what is basical changing the pitch of a allready recorded sound but keeping it the same lenth.

    Noramly when you speed something up it sounds higher pitched as the frequency gets shorter or higher … and when you slow it the opposite … but both these things “time stretch pitch correction” and “pitch change time undegraded correction” are basicaly a way of changing one variable with out effecting the other as mathamaticaly possible as is possible.

    When DJing in Ableton Live, there’s a lot of options what to do with the sample – to affect either tempo, pitch or both when you change BPM. This thing with pitch shifting comes from early samplers. I also own one, and when you feed it a sample, it is laid over the keyboard and thus even fast rhythm will sound slooooow on bass notes. And a phrase said in a normal register will sound as if it was a chipmunk who said it, when you hit a higher note. For DJ purposes changing tempo is more than enough, though, and that can be done on the most controllers… Digital allows to do more stuff, though – you can remix tracks live as well as remix and dj simultaneously. So if you use it right, you can make a party more fun for everyone! ๐Ÿ˜‰
