In this course, we’ll teach you how to start using the performance features and effects on your DJ controller. The course is packed full of tips, tricks and techniques that will help you to start thinking outside of the box and mixing creatively.

We want to help you stand out from the crowd by teaching you new mixing techniques that can help you develop your unique style. Take mixing a step further than just blending intros to outros and harness the power of your DJ controller.

This course contains 36 lessons in which you’ll learn:

Getting Started
We’ll explain exactly how the lessons are structured and show you where to download the Crossfader music pack. This pack is full of exclusive music to help build your library.

Performance Features
In this section, we will show you how to use hot cues, loops & beat jump across various genres. More importantly, we will also show you how to incorporate these features into your sets in creative ways.

Mixing in Key
You’ll learn the theory behind ‘mixing in key’ and why it’s essential to understand this. You’ll learn how to use ‘key shift’ and ‘key sync’ features to mix tracks that wouldn’t usually ‘mix in key’.

Mixing Techniques
In this section of the course, you’ll learn various mixing styles such as how to perform quick transitions, how to avoid a clash of vocals, tricks from the DJ booth to help your mixes stand out when playing to a crowd and more.

Beat FX
Learn how to use all of Rekordbox’s inbuilt FX to make your mixes sounder cleaner and add another layer of creativity to your DJ sets.

Pad FX
You’ll learn how to set up and combine various pad FX, adding some variation and flair to your mixes.

Capture & Sampler
This unique feature of Rekordbox allows you to remix your music live. We’ll show you exactly how this works and how to start using it in your DJ sets!

The Crossfader music pack contains a variety of exclusive music produced by friends of Crossfader to help you build your library while mastering the basics of mixing.
As a Crossfader student, you’ll also have access to this courses forum where you can meet and chat with other students and the tutor himself.

However, all the skills can be applied to any DJ controller using Rekordbox! All screengrabs on this course will be shown on a mac operating system but are all applicable to windows also. Some lessons in this course have screen grabs from Rekordbox 4.0; however, all the theory and technical skills still apply.

Our dedicated DJ tutor Jamie Hartley started working in the industry as a full-time DJ over a decade ago at the age of 16. Since 2014 he’s worked to build Crossfader from a small UK based DJ school where he taught aspiring DJs in his studio, into what you see today, a global online DJ school and community.

From working one to one for years in a studio, Jamie has developed foolproof and systematic ways of breaking down DJ skills and techniques so you can master them! A lot of other DJ schools will show you how things work rather than teaching you the creative skills needed to help you stand out from the crowd.
