Good news! It’s easier than you think to become a mix-master. Grab your favorite iDevice, throw on your ampjacket™, and get spinning.
This can be you.
The secret to successfully mixing songs lies in determining the beats per minute (BPM) of the music. Most modern software and mixing suites include the BPM of songs loaded into the software. In order to obtain the smoothest transitions from song to song, the BPM’s of the songs need to be creatively mixed together, which results in a flawless transition.
With the help of apps like djay shown above, you can begin to master the art of mixing. djay accesses the music on your iPad mini allowing you to spin tracks right on your device. The live mix is then played through the iPad mini’s speakers and amplified with the ampjacket™ iPad mini case. You can set up shop and DJ where speakers and other equipment might not be available like a park, dorm room, or even in the car.
After some practice with mixing, effects, and types of music, it’s all about experimentation. Experimenting with integrating different genres and types of music can yield some pretty interesting results.
