If you’re going to use software, it’s a safe bet that the hardware designed for it is going to be pretty hot. Such is the case with the Ableton Push. DJWORX teamster Darren E Cowley of Isotonik Studios impulse-bought one, but after the shortest play ended up boxing it up and putting it on to of a wardrobe to do house renovations. But having dug it out again, he sees what all the fuss is about. Here is his very detailed review, with a second opinion from Mark Settle.
The first wave of NI’s #futureofdjing is upon us in the shape of the Traktor Kontrol S8. It’s quite the beast, so review duties were handed to Jared Helfer, who not only played at home but also out in the wild. Behold 5000 words that you really need to read and heed.
2014 is almost at and end, so we of course look back over the year in which turntables became a thing all over again, companies fed their PR departments on steroids, and some old names fell while others were reborn. Five writers and five different opinions — pull up a chair, grab a brew, and dig into the DJWORX 2014 inquest.
When on the road, quality bags are crucial to make sure your equipment stays safe. Arkaei takes a closer look at the brand-new Magma Riot Pack series.
Serato has been an industry leader in time stretching, but not in the DJ world. But Pitch ‘N Time is in expansion pack form. Arkaei stretches his tunes.
It might look like it, but not all 4 channel controllers are created the same. Denon’s MC6000 MK2 gets a Serato facelift, and stands out in the crowd.
The Rane Sixty Four is a beast of a mixer, so only a few DJs are really capable of reviewing it. One such DJ is arkaei, and he did just that.
Brand blinkers have no place on DJWORX. So judging the Urbanears Zinken DJ headphones on merit only, Dan Morse really likes what he finds.
Reloop did get the memo about controllers killing turntables, but that didn’t stop them merging old and new to make the RP-8000 turntable. Review follows.
Two heads are better than one, especially when one of them is incredibly skilled and took the Numark NS7II out for a real world test. Read Arkaei’s review
