With 300 to 500 songs (minimum) in a digital DJ’s regular rotation, it’s nearly impossible to remember every song’s structure, but knowing your music remains one of the most important requirements for all DJs. Upon loading a new track, the most important things to know instantly about a song are:

  1. Where is the first beat?
  2. Where is the best place to start mixing?
  3. When does the vocal, bass line, or main part of the song begin?
    Stated differently, where should I be done with the mix?
  4. Where are the most natural mix out points in the song?

Fortunately most DJ software has a variety of cue points that can be used as flags to remind you of the critical places in a track. Traktor has a set of cue points which are different colors and serve different purposes, so these are best suited for flagging a track.
