How to DJ: Episode 2 – The Next Level With Phil K (Part 8 of 9)

Sun 10.05.2009

The penultimate part of Episode 2 sees master K on the master tempo tip.

In this clip Phil shows how to speed a track up or down by using the CDJ’s tempo slider and master tempo button. Master tempo basically locks the pitch of a track, allowing you to make changes to its tempo.

So no more Darth Fader or Minnie Mouse vox – unless that’s your desired effect! This technique is especially useful, as Phil explains, to keep things in key when mixing vocals or strings.
