From complete beginner to playing on your Numark Party Mix using beatmixing, cues, loops, samples & more

You're here because you've got (or are thinking of buying) the amazing Numark Party Mix controller and want to know how to play awesome DJ sets on it.

I'm here because I make DJ and DJ/producer courses for Digital DJ Tips, the online DJ school of choice for over 18,000 students in 105 countries.

Welcome To How To DJ With Your Numark Party Mix

Here at Digital DJ Tips, we train DJs and DJ/producers from beginner right up to fully pro. Scratch DJs, mobile/wedding DJs, club DJs and music producers have all turned their dreams into full-time careers by following our full curriculum.

But we also know that many DJs give up in their first six weeks!

They find taking those first steps in digital DJing just too hard and so their new gear ends up gathering dust under the stairs. Even if they persevere, it can take them months to nail the basics.

That's why we've created our "How To DJ With" series.

Featuring the same world-class instructors who teach our pro curriculum, these concise and practical courses take you from complete beginner (yes, we mean complete beginner) to being a DJ!

You'll master the gear, the music, the skills and the features so that you too can pull tricks that will amaze your friends and family, and help you to pack dancefloors right from the very start.

What makes this course so different?

  • It doesn't throw jargon and features at you with no explanation of what or why.
  • It doesn't lose sight of the fact that you want to know the important stuff so you can actually play the music you love to other people, fast!
  • And crucially, it doesn't forget what it's like to be a beginner.
  • Get started today and join the thousands of happy students of Digital DJ Tips - and who knows, it could be your first step to a changed career, fulfilling a lifelong dream

So what does this course cover?

  • You'll learn how to set up your new controller and the supplied Virtual DJ LE software

Программа
Introduction
Time to get started! Here you'll meet your Numark Party Mix for the first time, get the Virtual DJ software installed (don't worry, it's included with your equipment), and we'll get you set up.
Welcome to your new controller!
Your Party Mix may look complicated, but it's all pretty simple when you know how. In this lesson you'll get a quick overview of what all the parts do, as well as an introduction to how it plugs in to everything else - computer, speakers, headphones.
Downloading and installing Virtual DJ LE
Your Party Mix may look cool, but essentially it's just a dumb box of parts: It's the software where all the magic happens! So we need to get you all set up on your DJ software. In this lesson you'll download and install the supplied Virtual DJ LE program.
Connecting your controller, headphones and speakers
Let's take what we saw in the first lesson and make it happen - here you'll attach your headphones, speakers and laptop to complete your setup. By the time you're done, you'll have a complete DJ system ready to use.
Running Virtual DJ LE for the first time
As we've learned, your software is where the power lies in a laptop DJ setup. So here we'll get your copy of Virtual DJ LE up and running, and you'll get a detailed overview of every part of your interface, covering decks, mixer and music library.
How the Party Mix mirrors Virtual DJ LE
So the cool thing about using a DJ controller is that while all the clever stuff goes on in your laptop, you get intuitive, tactile control of the important stuff - just like a DJ on traditional gear does. In this lesson you'll learn how the physical controls on your Party Mix mirror what's going on onscreen.
Getting Your Music On
Whether you already use iTunes for your music or are starting this completely afresh, this module will get you to the point where you have a great and growing collection of tracks to DJ with.
Where's my music?!
As well as being your "decks" and "mixer", your DJ software is your music library, too. But you need to tell it where your music is for that to work. In this lesson, you'll learn how to get music into your library, how to get it from the library onto your "decks", and how to use iTunes as part of this process if you wish.
How to use iTunes to organise your DJ library
For lots of reasons, many DJs choose to use iTunes in their music organisation. Here you'll learn about why this is the case, and some of the essential settings you need in iTunes to make sure that if this is how you choose to work, everything works flawlessly.
How to organise playlists in iTunes or Virtual DJ LE Lite
One of the absolute biggest secrets of successful DJing with laptops is that you should DJ from "playlists" rather than from your whole library. Playlists give you what to everyone else looks like a "sixth sense" for choosing the best tunes, every time. In this lesson, we'll get you started with your own.
Want more music? Here’s where to get it
Music is cheaper and more accessible than ever before in history, but you still need to know where to go to grab the latest sounds. In this lesson, we'll give you a handful of choices for shopping, so you can source everything from the latest chart hits to the hottest underground sounds.
Mixing
In this module you're going to do your first mix, then rapidly improve your techniques, learning to line up (or "sync") your beats and tempos, and to count bars of music (the BIG DJ Secret!)
Требования
  • No pre-knowledge is required - enthusiasm is all you need
  • A PC or Mac
  • No software is required in advance of the course (the software you need comes with your controller)
  • Some music files to mix with (we'll show you where and how to get 'em)
  • A pair of headphones and a powered speaker or speakers that you can plug in to your controller
Что Вы изучите?

  • Perform your very first DJ transition
  • Use headphones to fine-tune your sound
  • Spot the perfect place in songs to mix
