VIDEO: Pan-Pot on NI’s #futureofdjing — it’s live remixing?

Native Instruments are really trying to drive discussion around their #futureofdjing hashtag. This time, they hook up with Techno darlings Pan-Pot to find out about how they work and how NI’s Traktor range fits into what they do. But NI also opened up the question of if live remixing is the #futureofdjing to DJ royalty. The responses are not exactly unexpected, but are still interesting.

Griffin DJ Connect audio interface review (7)

REVIEW: Griffin DJ Connect Stereo Audio Interface

With iOS being multi-channel audio capable, it’s time for hardware manufacturers to step up and harness the 30 pin and Lightning ports, and to finally bring real stereo outputs for headphones and speakers. Griffin has always been active in the Apple peripheral market, and has made the DJ Connect — a small and eye-catching bus powered audio interface that means saying goodbye to the mono splitter cable.

Native Instruments UK #futureofdjing

OPEN FLOOR: What is the #FutureOfDJing?

A brief excursion to London for a visit to Native Instruments UK new offices (lots of windows, wood and bare brick – lovely) gave me a insight into their roadmap, and their new #futureofdjing hashtag was a key part of the presentations.

Duck Sauce control vinyl = Quacktor Scratch

Traktor time code special editions are scarce. But when they do turn up, they’re usually pretty special and done in conjunction with DJ A-listers. In this case, Duck Sauce’s new “Radio Stereo” single is coming on on orange vinyl via Thud Rumble. Only 1000 copies will be made so expect it to sell out quickly. Or Quackly. Sorry – it’s a puntastic story.

VIDEO: Mini Innofader inside a Pioneer DJM-T1

Pioneer mixers are ubiquitous, and as such are an ideal bed fellow for the Audio Innovate mini Innofader. The relationship hasn’t always worked out well, and has seen AI come up with all manner of hacks and fixes. So we approached their DJM-T1 mixer with some trepidation, but with AI’s help, we got them working nicely together. And we made a video to show it in action.

Allen & Heath xone:23 review (20)

REVIEW: Allen & Heath xone:23 Mixer

Allen & Heath knows how to make mixers. Normally associated with being in the booth, they’ve also serviced the entry level market for a long time too. The new xone:23 distills a lot of the established high expertise into a much smaller 2 channel unit. Mark Settle takes a look and establishes that two channels doesn’t always mean scratch mixer.
