 Why do I need to have the songs at the same BPM

Q. Why do I need to have the songs at the same BPM?


While it is not necessary to have the songs at the same BPM to mix, it is advisable for both songs to have the same rhythm for a smooth transition. The easiest way to accomplish this is by having the beats of the songs playing at the same speed (tempo). That's why DJ turntables and CD players have a pitch control that allows them to speed up or slow down the music.

In VirtualDJ, you can either slide the on-screen pitch sliders to match the BPM or simply press the SYNC button and the software will do it for you.

If you are using a MIDI controller, then this will usually have a pitch slider that you can move to match the BPM.
