So this is my very first time ever mixing anything, EVER. And I recently got virtual DJ 6, and I just want to know how to use it. So basically I'm doing a dance showcase, and I needa mix some songs
Don’t take this the wrong way but you should have declined to DJ this event. You obviously are not ready yet. With patience and practice, you will be ready one day.

Start by cutting the lows from the new track thats coming in. Use the sync to line up the new track. Count the beats on the older track...1,2,3,4...and then on the next 1, bring in the lows from the new track and cut the lows from the older one(as close to "at the same time" as possible).
This is a good suggestion for beat-mixing. However, I would recommend the simpler method of cutting the lows on the song that’s playing while fading in the next song. It eliminates the need to restore the lows back to the song that was brought into the mix, which a beginner can easily forget to do.
