what the funkParticipant
does nobody use a metronome? i find the metronome noise a little annoying so i usually throw down a simple kick,snare beat then match it that way
i have tried acid, thats good and mixmeister is also pretty reliable but im an old dog at heart so the home made metronome rules every time for me.January 27, 2008 at 3:52 am #642146

(considering i have a ZERO tolerance for spammers…especially in the morning.)
Nah, people know the score here so don’t even bother trying the spamming thing.April 1, 2008 at 6:12 pm #646925
also, try "Mixed In Key" it;s a dj software, it gives you the song key + bpmApril 1, 2008 at 6:53 pm #646929
well if you have good ears, brain and memory, you can approximate match bpm by listening to the song and counting beats .)
or easier way is counting beats for 20s, and then *3 and you’ve approximate BPM too .)
its little needless in days with PC, but if you’re will be in situation without some digital device, it could be helpful )April 5, 2008 at 10:26 pm #647276
Mixed in key not only finds BPM, but it matches the key too.
Great tool for when you are out of ideas.April 9, 2008 at 7:54 pm #647578
i will try a few of the aboveApril 10, 2008 at 9:32 am #647608
i find that virtual dj is usually a good indication of bpm although sometimes with acapellas since there in to specific ‘beat’ that virtual dj can notice, then some of the ones i have put in recently dont seem to be correct.
alot of acapellas can be matches by verses ..ill try explain but might not make sense. this is for when trying to layer pella over a tune
take ‘music is the answer’ by tenaglia.
i find the pella is in sync when it goes like this
beat count: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 -(beats in tune u have on)
‘dancin and prancin’ ‘grooving keep on movin’ etc etc
bit of a crappy explination but u can notice that the next verse begins on a new bar of whatever song you have playin although u need to listen to substantial amount of bars coz over 8 beats it might not ncassarily be in sync. hope this helps in some wayApril 10, 2008 at 9:44 am #647609
that last post never came out how i intended it lol dancin and prancin is say 1,2,3,4 then ‘groovin keep on movin’ on the next 1,2,3,4 then ‘flyin…… etc etc
you know wot i mean am sure!April 16, 2008 at 11:07 am #648023
i have tryed to get the BPM for the song Hurt by christina aguilera but mixed in key tells me one BTM and when i try and line it up to that BPM in FL studio, it never matches, i dont no if this is because i am only trying to match up the corus or maybe the bpm changes during the corus im not sure. but i have tryed between 70 bpm and 105 bpm still no luck.. ill try and get that virtual dj and see how that goesApril 16, 2008 at 3:57 pm #648036

To much is automated now and in my opinion is less reliable.April 16, 2008 at 6:19 pm #648053
currently if i get an acapella i run it through magix music maker and that usually works out the bpm for me
but if i want to speed it up or slow it down to the temp i need let say 140 or sumink like that
ill put the acapella down and then get a steady beat playign at 140 and just strethc the vocals into place
long proceedure i know but works most of the timeSeptember 3, 2009 at 2:06 pm #671448
I’m a newbie to the site, newbie to using acapellas, and a failry newbie to DJin.
Just made it through to the final of the DIrty SMart DJ comp..against 9 other very experienced and talented DJs.
I have to create a mix that is 40mins to an hour long, and blow their bloody sox off! Will Bailey/Funkagenda and Judge Foolz will all listen to the 10 finalists mixes, to decide one winner…so i need to pull out all the stops.
Think there’s only one other gal in the comp, so be good to do it for the girlies..even better to do it for me! If i don’t win, chances are high..at least i am having my mix heard by some important peeps…so i really want to impress!
Was wondering about the BPM..i just thought you had to count in your head..i’ll try running them through Mixed In Key, although i don’t have the full version..just the freebie.
Playing a tech/min set..where do you recon i may find smaples from the Donnie Darko movie…some amazing quotes in there!?

i neva knew bout it damn ….
i think i need 12 moreSeptember 5, 2009 at 5:22 pm #671501September 7, 2009 at 1:15 pm #671567
Didn’t there used to be a huge list online of tracks (and their various remixes) with the bpm? I can never seem to find it these days tho!
Although it is heartening to know that someday soon I will have access to the bpm info when dl anything from hereSeptember 11, 2009 at 1:30 am #671734
When all else fail you can always search for the track name + bpm. There’s likely someone who has done the calculation for you beforehand.September 13, 2009 at 4:38 am #671836
i just find the bpm of the original track and set my master bpm to that on ableton. it auto warps pretty good for the most partSeptember 14, 2009 at 10:03 am #671863
Loop 4 bars of the original song
then tap tempoOctober 23, 2009 at 7:56 pm #673266
if you have serato it can also detect the bpmOctober 23, 2009 at 8:03 pm #673277
I used to use NI Traktor, plug in the original and it would give you a close value to the acapella bpm (sometimes it can be slightly off the original track bpm). Then play in Fruity and adjust slightly.October 26, 2009 at 3:43 pm #673403
I use Traktor to… but it’s not always working properly..November 8, 2009 at 8:52 pm #673918
i know its already been said here but find the bpm of the original track. that usually works for meNovember 10, 2009 at 8:20 pm #673948
Three ways that I normally give a go:
1. Get the tempo from Original.
2. There’s qite often some bleed on the ‘pella ie you can hear the backing mix in the vocalist’s headphones. Use that.
3. Loop a phrase until it sounds right and take the tempo from there.
