Hello everyone and welcome to the “Creating DJ Mixes in Ableton” Tutorial. In this tutorial, I will be showing how I create DJ mixes from the tracks being organised in Rekordbox to a finished exported mix in Ableton.
I’ll be talking you through the tools I use to mix harmonically, how I arrange my tracks, setting up the channels, transition points, the plugins I use, how to warp your tracks PROPERLY, and much much more!
The tutorial is created using Ableton Live 10 and Ableton stock plugins, but you can use any version of your choice.

Quite an interesting tutorial this.
Very clear and high quality as always from Allan Morrow. Will be purchasing more for sure
A DJ mix doesn't always have songs with a constant beat throghout the song to start with. This Tutorial cover the cosmetics more than the basics. Should have been more on how to handle the diffucult art to prepare the songs regarding beatgridding.
I've tried doing DJ mixes on Ableton a few times over the years but always struggled getting tracks to stay in sync. I was constantly zooming in and out moving the tracks millimetres to the left or right to get everything lined up correctly and then again trying to sort out all the automation. As soon as I saw Allan had done this tutorial I bought it! Put a mix together in no time. Worth the money just for the few minutes he shows you how to properly warp a track which makes a massive difference! Everything else is a bonus!
