A lot of people have been asking me how I made my DJ Drop, listen here:

“DJ David Bitton, bitch” (register & login to view link)

Personally, I happen to have a very good friend (DJ Beats) who has his own home-studio and recorded and edited the entire thing for me in less then a few minutes.

Assuming not everyone has their friendly neighborhood producer – I did some research online for all our subscribers! There are 3 different ways you can go about this – Doing it yourself and get decent results, trying to get one done online for free, or paying a professional to make this for you. Contrary to what you may think – you can actually get a really professional DJ Drop in less then a day for less then $10!

Option #1 – Make your own

No one said it was going to be easy or sound good, but you basically need a pretty good microphone connected to your computer (or you can connect a mic to your dj mixer and record to the computer using Serato or Audacity) and record the drop. Then you will have to play with it in an audio-editing program (Audacity, Adobe Audition, Acid, Cubase, Pro Tools, Ableton) until you adjust the pitch, volume, tone, and make it sound good. If you want to get that stutter effect (D-D-D-D-DJ ChaCha), all you have to do is copy and paste the “D” multiple times and mess with the speed and pitch. You can read this article (register & login to view link) which goes into a little bit more detail.

Option #2 – Get one done for FREE
Now this option always sounds appealing because it’s free but not always the best or quickest. There are a few websites out there that offer free voice-over services as long as you give them credit or even a small $5 tip. I tried one out and got pretty decent results, but it did take A LONG time (3 weeks) to get made. I used http://www.radiodaddy.com (register & login to view link) and a women named Kimberly ended up making the drop for me. I asked for “You’re in the mix with DJ David Bitton” and here’s what came back:

I’m not sure if I will use this, but it’s better then nothing I guess. My suggestion is, if you’re going to use this website, find a good voice-over man or women you like and private message them offering some money ($5-10).

Option #3 – Buy a DJ Drop from a Professional voice-over & studio (recommended)

In all honesty, with the hassle it takes to try making your own, or searching for someone to do it for free or $5, I would just find a good and professional voice-over studio online and get them to make one for you. I was searching around and found a really cool guy named DJ Wigman in the Serato forums. He has a website http://www.djdropsbywigman.com/ (register & login to view link)where he sells 3 types of professional DJ drops with great service and usually 1-day turnaround time! In less then 3 hours, this is what he produced for me in all 3 styles (Dry, Veo, & Full Effect):

Dry-Style (No Effects, Just Vocals) (register & login to view link)

Veo-Style (Effects on Vocals) (register & login to view link)

Full Effect-Style (Full sound effects with vocals) (register & login to view link)

I was really happy with the quick turn-around time, and super-fast email responses, and the drops were really dope and are definitely going to be replacing my other one from now on. All-in-all, this would be my number 1 recommended method for getting your own DJ Drop, for less then $10!

So, there you have it – 3 different ways of going about this. If you have any other ideas, comments, websites, please write about them in the comments section and also throw up a link to your personal DJ Drop!

    Yeah, Wigman is the voice of all my mixtapes. I’ve tried others but they are slow or are way expensive.

    The Wigman as he calls himself and I found out recently simply has a standard template so to speak and he drops the stations ID and city, etc. into the drops. Its sort of a fill in the blanks and rubber stamps these so theres nothing “custom” about them except if you want to pay $$ in which case their not $5 anymore, their more like $65 as in my case.
