I’ve been experimenting recently using C6.5 to make DJ-style mixes. I’m aware that other software is designed more specifically for this purpose but I enjoy using cubase and I wanted to see what kind of results I could get.
Using music I see as innovative and futuristic, I made a set that manipulates and re-edits the original tracks as well as blends them together. It’s an experimental, sci-fi inspired piece that uses styles I’d like to hear more of in the future. I also wanted to create something that would stand alone as a composition rather than purely showcase other people’s music.
I tried to blend the tracks together as subtly as possible and really build them into one another. It features automated panning, effects and re-arrangements of the source audio.
I hope this is of interest to a few people out there. I’d like to hear what you make of it and I welcome any comments.
I was also wondering if many people had done anything similar? If so I’d appreciate any links to sets people have made plus people’s thoughts on mastering a full length mix.
