Back in the day, playing out your own edits was strictly for the DJ elite, who had the reel-to-reel know-how (and the cuts on their fingers to prove it). But between the spread of affordable DAWs and the rise of digital DJing, it’s easier than ever to create your own custom versions to play out.
But getting your exclusive refix to sound decent on a big system is harder than it might seem. DJ TechTools comes to the rescue with ‘Pump Up the Jam: A DJ’s Guide to Mastering’. They enlist the heavyweight mixing/engineering expert John Cuniberti to spell out the basics of mastering, and UK house DJ/producers Sonny Wharton and Digital Impression chime in with their own tips for eager beavers who want to sink their teeth into the dark art of mastering for club play.
Check out the entire thing over at DJTechTools.
