Logic Pro X Tutorial: How To Start a New DJ Mix

Quick run-through on starting a new #dj mix in Logic Pro X. Topics include setting the tempo/bpm, importing music files, easier time-stamping, and adjusting settings for smoother mixing & beatmatching Featured in this video: Logic Pro X Mix #63 (ft. Justin Bieber's Peaches)

Peaches - Justin Bieber ft. Daniel Caesar, GIVĒON

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Track #6 in mix #63 (10:43): Felt like the transition from Just a Friend into this song was a little abrupt; piano intro to Peaches has no percussion, and then it just drops into Justin Bieber singing. So I cut out the keyboard/synth solo at the end of Peaches ( quick video tutorial on how to do it ), then moved it ahead of the official intro for a more gradual mix. A visual from my Logic Pro X file: Can't lie; this is a nice little soundtrack for a stroll in the park on a sunny day. Some more key-compatible music from 90 to 95 bpm: Real Love - Mary J. Blige Crockett's Theme - Jan Hammer Closer - Nine Inch Nails Back to Sleep - Chris Brown Watermelon Sugar - Harry Styles Starboy - The Weeknd, Daft Punk Delicate - Taylor Swift Stir Fry - Migos Gorgeous - Taylor Swift Unpretty - TLC Suena El Dembow - Joey Montana, Sebastián Yatra Pendulum - Katy Perry SUBEME LA RADIO - Enrique Iglesias All We Know - The Chainsm
