We've got a very interesting subject
We're gonna learn how to mix without the
turn tables, just mix with your
computer like, if you're at a show all you
need is your computer with digital Serato.
So, we have DJ Meow Meow Cow.
>> Today, we will learn to mix with no
Many times, also at clubs, Meow Meow
Scratch has to mix with whack equipment.
Just last week at my favorite sushi place,
Turntables no working, making me work
I learned for the first time how to mix
nos turntables, and
that was just tomorrow.
So now, I will show you the difference
between keyboard and
turntables just to show you what it means
for each button.
First of all if you do not have the code
memorized on the keyboard,
it can be very hard.
Some people, what is one?
What is r?
What is x?
I do not know these things.
Meow Meow Scratch is all about efficiency.
And so, when I wish to be efficient
I like to use keyboard overlay
specifically for Serato.
I get these at TurntableLab.com.
So now, I have everything, cue points,
numbers, letters, cap signs that only I
can see with my special glasses.
Now, I have my two songs.
For instance, I am mixing two songs here.
Everything will be in inter, internal
Just click internal mode.
You will have no choice because you do not
And so, what we will do here is we will
set cue points.
So, que points, what will que points serve
in this cause?
Well, when we are mixing for instance, we
all know when we mix we sit here and
que, que, que, que, que, the same goes,
we will make a que point Just like our
Let us hear cue point.
Oh, a scratch.
Oh, a scratch.
No, no scratching for this.
Set cue point.
Again, use either keyboard or a mouse for
I will set key point at right there.
Now, we push play.
Hm, key point not sound good.
So, I push pause, I go back.
[SOUND] That is good thing Vinyl.
I try Q point here.
Does it not?
Let us say we now have other song playing.
what we must remember is please make sure
song is correct speed you wish you have.
And now, I go here.
I can use either keyboard or mouse.
Let us look for minute.
If I use mouse, here is my pitch control.
I know you ask, Meow Meow Scratch, what is
What does this serve?
I will tell you right now.
As we play.
If you hold this down here, or
if you push this button here.
What you are doing is, if you are really
using turntables, it is equivalent of
pushing, pushing, just a little nudge that
we like to do when we're mixing, mixing.
So now, to make lesson easier on ears.
We will loop that song just the beat only
again I drag the line to the beginning
where I wish to loop.
If you remember loop lesson.
I hope you remember loop lesson for your
For this I will use eight loop.
Let us listen.
Now, I will attempt to mix with no turn
What I will do is use queue point.
So now, I hit play.
I'll let you listen instead of queuing on
Right now, very wack, off beat.
Sound better, sound better.
Slow down a little, use pitch bend down.
Pitch bend down, pitch bend up, same as
slowing down or pushing on record.
Maybe, volume ten is too slow.
If volume tense is low,
I pitch up just little bit.
Just a little.
As you can see moving up, 96, good.
Mm, off beat again.
As you can see very close.
Remember to listen as well, Listening more
important than seeing.
Very basics when it comes to mixing.
Well now, I attempt to let it play.
A little slower, little slower, just a
We continue with other songs.
If you have other songs to play what you
must remember is stop the other song.
You can now load song.
Very different ways to load song.
You can load song by the dragging or
you can load song by simply pushing apple,
left turn table or
right turn table, depending which turn
table you wish to load.
Again, we all know scratch is all about
Repeat same step.
Look for key point.
Here, I will look for key point now so you
First, we play.
Just like we play.
There, cue point.
I like to use one.
You got back to original song.
Two, three, four, one, two, three, four,
one, two, three, four.
now, you know, emergency mixing style, no
But remember, always use vinyl records
whenever possible to be a true DJ.
This is meow meow scratch, and now I am
off to go play with the puppies.
