One of the oldest tricks in the DJ world is to use any and all of the controls on a DJ mixer to gate or transform one of the playing decks. There’s plenty of ways to do it – so in today’s Throwback Thursday DJ technique, Ean explains how and why you might want to swipe the input selector in time with the beat. Watch inside:
Input transform is a classic DJ effect – but as with all of our Throwback Thursday techniques, every DJ can use it in a modern context.
We’ve had a great time identifying some of the most interesting and useful DJ tips from back in the day – and there are a bunch more tutorials cued up for the next few weeks. That being said, if you’ve got a unique or interesting throwback tip that you think we should do, or that you want to do yourself for DJTT, please let us know in the comments!
(Editor’s note: yes, the levels are distorting on the mixer slightly. This is due to a technical issue in the studio causing our monitors to play too quietly – but some of these Throwback videos have overblown audio as a result.)
