  1. Christian Says:


    The mixing of your music and voice though is really harsh, like it drops in and out. Can you fade in your voice-overs more smoothly or is this a technical thing?

    Keep up the mixes dude!

  2. jdnb Says:

    Hey man, cheers for the feedback!

    I know the ducking is pretty average (it’s governed by the mixer – Pioneer DJM-700) and there’s no way to change it. To be honest I’m not sure how to fix this. I have asked around and I haven’t as yet received any decent advice. It’s funny though, as when I listen to it on my iPod I think it sounds fine but I guess people listen to it using different means so that will change how it sounds. I need to spend more time adjusting the mic settings as the acoustics here are very different to the old place 🙂

  3. devilbond Says:

    I concur with Christian – though the problem is hard wired. The DJM drops the mix by -20db, where normally around -12db should suffice, and it drops it pretty hard instead of a smoother fade.

    Can you talk into a third channel and have that always-live while your talking and mix it out when you’re getting your rinse on, or not?

  4. jdnb Says:

    *sigh* … pretty much the sole reason for buying the DJM-700 was for the talkover function, which is being panned all over the place. D’oh!

    Ok, just so you know I am working on a solution but it’s taking some time to sort out. What I hope to have at the end is fully customisable compression applied to the music which is triggered by the input detected on the mic track. I’ll spare you the details for now, but I will post my solution if/when I get it all sorted.

    So in meantime I’m afraid there’ll have to be more “rude-ass” ducking as I want to keep putting out shows and I don’t know how long it will take before I get this solution all sorted out.

    Patience people, patience 🙂 This is annoying me as much as it’s annoying you – well actually it’s annoying me a whole lot more but I will win and isn’t that what it’s all about in the end hehe

    Nice – Hey I got iTunes to download Ep7 by the way… hitting unsubscribe / subscribe in iTunes didn’t work, but going to your site and reclicking the iTunes button did… once I found it! ;P
