Much is made of audio latency in the mobile platform. Now Superpowered has devised a test, and you’re all invited to help build the definitive database.
Android 5 has allowed Algoriddim to go full multi-channel with the Pioneer WeGO3 and djay 2 for Android. And there’s a new free version too.
Seems that DJs are going to have to grow thick skins if this new parody video is anything to go by. Whiplash becomes DJ WH1PLA$H and undergoes similar training torture as the drum based film. But how much parodying of your craft can you handle? Is being a DJ just a running joke now?
An incremental update is out for Serato’s entry level DJ Intro software. Version 1.2.4. gets compatibility with Korg’s new KAOSS DJ controller.
So there I was at Pioneer DJ UK, waiting to be interviewed for an upcoming video. And having been left alone with the new XDJ-RX all-in-one controller for an hour, the only logical thing to do was write a first look piece about my brief experience. I only had a USB key with a few tracks on it, but it was enough to get a solid first impression. And here it is.
We have seen and lusted over the new and MP2015. But brace yourselves for a massive dose of DJ gear porn — a factory full of almost ready rotary mixers.
A version of the original Pro X Fade promo video is circulating on Facebook right now, one that sadly has edited out any credits. So as a Throwback Thursday thing, we present the original version created by Chris Cairns, and also remind you of another classic DJ video of his creation.
By today’s standards, vintage mixers are featureless lumps of trash. But we’re still fascinated by them and want to know all about them. We successfully tracked down one used at the end of Hip Hop classic “Wild Style”, and now we’ve managed to fulfil a couple of DJWORX community member’s requests. Behold, the mixer used by Grandmaster Flash in the classic kitchen scene, and the one used in the Beat Street trailer.
We may batter our DJ gear, but it still needs to be cared for. Thus UDG has made some small hard cases for a range of smaller controllers.
