With todays technology(computer software,etc), the mixtape/cd game seems to be stronger than ever. I have yet to take advantage of recording a mix onto the computer and laying down shit on top of it,cleaning it up,and other studio trickery. What I am curious of is what kind of techniques some of you dudes use on your mixtapes..err CDs. I know this is sort of a general question..but I would like some tips on different techniques/tricks to spice up a mix..stuff like laying down recorded scratches on top of a mix,etc. I have always only made straight up mixtapes on tapes with no frills..but now I use Cubase and want to make a good demo mix for shopping around the local clubs and bars to get gigs. In other words..I want to make the mix top notch..the kind of shit that will stick out when heard by club/bar owners. All pointers would be appreciated.
