Another year, and another dull Musikmesse. And after the fourth in a row preceded by a quiet NAMM, we have to ask — are DJ trade shows are past their prime?
Musikmesse 2016 is changing to be a public consumer focussed show. So will more potential visitors mean more new shiny will be announced at the show?
Feels like NAMM 2014 was just last month (actually not far off), and here we are with Musikmesse 2014. But what do you think is coming?
What happens when coachloads of clever EDM types gather by the seaside for 2 days of chat? The Brighton Music Conference that’s what.
You spoke and Gemini listened. Post NAMM, Gemini decided to make a 2 channel Gemini G2V as well as clean-slating the GMX and starting over.
A logical, totally expected but low key launch at Musikmesse 2013 was Numark’s Mixtrack Quad. Think Mixtrack Pro II, with 2 more channels and RGB lights.
If you’re a purist who has only just got used to DVSs, look away now. For DJ Player 6 beta is running in DVS mode on just an iPad. And it nails it too.
Rather than blow a fanfare, Numark left the iDJ Flex laying around on their stand at Musikmesse 2013 for people to discover. Think baby iDJ Pro.
The Numark Edge shoehorns itself into the physical space format between iPad and controller. We grabbed it at Musikmesse 2013 and were impressed.
DJ Player constantly marches on through point releases. But at Musikmesse 2013, we got an exclusive look at the next full release. DJ Player 6 is here.
