As Snoop Dogg would say, “Drop It Likes It’s Hot!” There are a lot of companies who offer to make custom DJ drops for a fee. Yet, what if you want your own voice for the drop, or a friend’s? Or, maybe you want to make one on the fly while you’re at a job. Or, maybe you just don’t want to purchase a professionally made drop. Can you make a simple one yourself? Yes!
In this short video quick tip, DJ Frankie SURE and I teach you how to make a simple and fast DJ drop just by using your iPhone and Serato DJ Intro. While we used the iPhone and Serato for this example, almost all phones have a voice recorder and most software allows you to load samples.
Step one is to record your custom drop using the voice recorder app on your smart phone. Next, download your new recording to your computer. Third, drop the recording into your samples. You can just use the simple recording as a drop. Yet, if you want to enhance the sound you can use your special effects. Once you select the special effects you like with your drop, record the final on your phone, then download back to your computer. This way, you can use it anytime.
In this example, I made a simple voice sample of Frank’s DJ name, “DJ Frankie SURE”. Yet, you could get really creative with your recordings and special effects. For example, if you’re DJing a private party have some of the guests say the guests of honor’s name. Then, you can play it throughout the night. It adds a personal touch to the party. With the special effects added your guest of honor is sure to feel really special to have their own DJ Drop!
