Evil1 Rough Transitions

Okay, I'm able to get the beats matched perfectly for most of my mixes, BUT the transitions still sound rough. I mean you can tell exactly where the next song begins.


Even when it's all matched up and sync'ed up perfectly, no matter how I play with the EQ's, the mix is still rough.

Ok.
Several tips:
1. When starting to mix, always use lower volium for the incoming track, never play them equally right on the start, unless you are using equalizer all the way off.
2. When using the EQ, Start off with a little bass, at the same time turn the Hi frequency nobbs in opposite directions for a smooth transition.
3. After that, turn the Mid frequency nobbs again at opposite directions, let in a little more bass and equal the basses.
then in a sharp movement, raise the Hi frequency of the incoming track and kill the other ones bass.

That should do the trick
Of course I dont always do it like that, I try to be innovative and original, but thats the basic way
Good luck

dvd - some people use it.. some people dont.. i'm one of the people that loves my cross fader and this is how i do most (keyword: most) of my transitions

after getting the next record beatmatched and cued, let it go and i have my volume on the other record relatively low.. also i have the bass almost completely off becuase i like to lead in w/ more treble and mid.. then i slide the xfader to the middle, from here i slowly turn up the volume, as i'm working the volume up, i start to raise the bass level on the incoming track while lowering it on the track thats already playing.. u can play w/ the other eq's too doing the same thing.. then as i start to lower the volume on the track thats playing, i also lower the mid to about 30% so basically i leave the treble in until the song ends or until my beats start to go out of sync (which shouldn't happen if you beatmatched perfectly) then i slide my xfader all the way over..
..this is a really basic relay of what i do, to get the full effect of what im talking about, you'd have to watch me do it.. but if you play around w/ ur mixer, im sure u'll figure it out

Make sure that the track that you are fading in doesn't have any melodies.

No, i mean at the time when he's fading it in.
Also learn to count your songs. Meaning
good fade:
Deck A: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9...
Deck B: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9...
Bad Fade:
Deck A: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9...
Deck B: 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2...
This will make your transitions sound much better and will make mixing easier

I think this is a useful tip.. thanks. Meaning your incoming has to be in phase with your outgoing, not only in sync. (Anyone knows what I'm talking about; I got this quote from recess.co.uk; don't flame! )

Actually it's not really a tip but a rule that should be followed all the time.
