  1. This is the most useful tutorial I have seen in ages. As a multi-instrumentalist, not a DJ, I learned so many useful tips from this clip.

  2. Great post ryan 🙂 the part where you find the key actually was most useful to me.. I admire the time and effort you spent on the vids here.. Thank you so much! 😀 hope to see more vids from you and hope to learn more from you.

  3. An easier way to Warp is to do the first kick as you did then find the first kick of the last the bar and warp that, that will put all the other hits in time, then just check the breaks like at beat 33 and where ever else.
