If you have not already finished the introduction course (and would like to), please do so before continuing through this course, as there may be helpful information for you.
If you already know the basics, then feel free to pass on that course :)
I'm Aeon, and I have put in over 800 hours learning and experimenting with what works and doesn't work with mixing music. As I originally taught myself (through watching other DJs mix, watching tutorial videos, searching forums, etc.), I found that it was actually really difficult and/or time consuming to find all the specific and relevant information I needed to learn certain techniques. Combine this with a decent amount of interest from others in learning from me, I figured it would be more efficient to consolidate all my knowledge on the subject into nice convenient and easy to follow training packages.
Realizing I also have knowledge on a variety of other subjects people would be interested in learning, I figured it would be more efficient to just incorporate all of this into 1 place. As a result, I have invested many months putting all of my knowledge together into individually packaged courses on this site for your enjoyment!
Dream big, achieve bigger, and may all your dreams become reality!
What To Expect
In the following training, you will learn the advanced techniques I have learned and developed over my 800 hours of DJing to create solid music mixes. Most of the lessons will be presented as full video guides, which may be accompanied by text and/or documents. By the end of this course, you should have full confidence to be able to use and navigate DJ software, and create solid, continuous, and entertaining music mixes.
While almost all of the guides will be demonstrated using a 4 channel mixer/controller (a Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 Mk2 DJ controller), the techniques demonstrated will apply to any situation. Same applies to the software that is being demonstrated on (Traktor Pro 3). Although the software may be different than your specific use, the concepts still apply across all controllers and software being used.
*Keep in mind that while this training aims to make the process as replicate-able as possible, mixing music is an art that relies on the creative freedom of the individual creating the mix to be successful. That being said, I don't exactly tell you how to mix, but the techniques I have learned and how to use them in specific situations to help you improve your options in mixing.
