This is my first project using MixMeister Studio program.
MixMeister Studio is all about programming. All I did was setting the parameters like volume, eqs and speed controls, also how long I want the transitions to go on, or maybe edit some of the tracks... then the program will do it all for me. The good thing about it is: unlike live-mixing, I can always come back to add track by track in my convenience, and if I make mistakes, I can always come back to that specific part and fix it over and over again till I'm happy with the result.
Definitely a great program for those who seek perfection. But then again, it is "programming.".... Not a live deejay mixing.
Making this mix was actually more tedious and took me much more time. After setting the parameters, I have to go through countless sound trials. And what I miss mostly is the "thrill" I got from Live-Mixing. I was told that if I want a live mixing then I can use MixMeister Fusion. Definitely will give it a try one day!
And for MixMeister Studio, i think I'll use it more for tracks editting or making remixes in the future.
And for making mixsets, I'll stick to my current SERATO ITCH. Loving it more and more each day.

Probably the hardest mix and the longest time that took me to prepare: from songs gathering, playlist arrangement and the process of mixing it which takes countless retries. If it wasn't for all the requests I've received to make a latin mix, I would've drop this project. Life would've been much easier if the requests were a latin mix with songs from 2005 above, but they just have to be those latin songs from mid to late 90s... which (I later realized) are very hard to find good quality mp3 with the "right" remixes that still keep the original songs' vibes.
This mix is still far from perfect. But I hope it serves its purpose of bringing you back to those sweet eras in the mid and late 90's where latin songs such as those sung by Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Marc Anthony & Jennifer Lopez totally ruled the radios and clubs.
Making special version from my Spotlight Series for two of my loyal listeners who came up with a list of their favourite songs from Spotlight series all this time. Thanks for your support all this time, guys.... Listen and enjoy!!!
The idea of making this mix came when I was 'dragged' to a local R&B and Hip-Hop Club by my friend. Somehow, I still feel 'sumthing' is kinda missing. Maybe I should learn 'how to scratch' for this kind of mixes.
This mix seems like forever to make. I had to remake it over and over again as I wasn't satisfied with the results. Not to mention how my computer crashes on me and I have to do a long recovery for it.
A "BIG THANK YOU" to DJ Zabreack who made his comment and suggestion on how to improve my mixes. It certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone, but in the end I discover a new way of mixing.
