    If you open up Sony Acid Pro 7, go to File > New Composition > Bhangra Mix, a pop-up will appear asking you to set a few basic parameters (flow, number of songs, genre of overlays, favorite Full House character, number of sword slashes, whether you think EQ is a BTF conspiracy propogated by Swi, Neet, JasonK, Gsimz, and Kush, how much you want to abuse the DBI loop and how tone deaf you expect the audience to be). Acid Pro will actually compile and preview a basic mix for you based on your inputs! There's also a new "Call me a trendsetter" option that will mimic a part of another team's mix and is a easy way to get an endorphin high. :)

    lol I'm no help. Bro, you're not the first person to ask this question and you won't be the last. Use the SEARCH function.

    Watch that Swi will teach you some Sony Acide Pro basic skills
    http://www.youtube.com/user/ProfessorSwi#p/u

    Go to Post Mixes Tab and download loops that are on top from Swi, Herman. Search bigdesi rip and some dhol beats to get all the loops.

    Than just follow the tutorial and make your mixes.

    whenever you're listening to your transitions and mixes, always listen to it like it's your first time listening to it. When you hear a bad transition over and over it starts to sound good haha.

    Currently in the process of making the mix...but having trouble with the transition between two songs! Basically i've got a medium tempo song, and the point we wanna finish this song at is the point that the next song will begin. The 2nd song begins from its very start, and so the 2nd song is not already in the main beat as it starts...

    to me it sounds weird coz the mix comes to this point where the current song in its main beat ends, and then the next song starts at its start :S

    Any tips on making a clean transition?

    I think its great that a bhangra DJ puts out a tutorial for making mixes.

    However, both these video's don't offer much information that is useful to someone who wants to get better at mixing/production.

    I use FL Studio and these video's are nothing but a look at the interface.

    If you want to learn how to make bhangra mixes, unfortunately there are no videos for that specifically except a really old one done on ACID PRO. There also is no recipe for making them. I suggest watching video's on production tip's and tutorials. At the end, this is what will help you improve your mix.

    I have found myself going to FireWalk on youtube for tips and education in certain topics. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVvm9kiF99TiXlZAbIQq9RQ

    Additionally, as GSingh has often pointed out in this forum, your DAW's reference manual is a great resource if you're looking to learn. I don't read it most times because I learn better through videos, but if I can't find a video I go to the manual.

    When using FL, the one thing you will have to learn first is fitting to tempo (takes 2 seconds to learn) - and JSM's video covers it, so does every other sampling tutorial on youtube.

    I do hope he releases more video's soon so he can show people some other cool things FL is capable of doing

    does anyone know any good apps to use (i have a mac)? i wanted to make a remix with sound effects without using that much money because my school only gives us a certain amount for the club.

    maybe garage band on a mac would be simple enough for your needs? I don't know if logic pro offers a trial version, thats a DAW that is catered to the Mac user.
