Did you ever wonder how DJ gear is made? Do you know the exact process of how a drunken scribble in a bar becomes the product you’re playing with every weekend? While we have a solid idea of the process, we thought it would be nice to give the tiniest of glimpses into how NI does it at BPM 2015.

Jared Helfer managed to escape the demo stage compound, and with the help of Chad Carrier, Stephen Parker, and David Eserin from Native Instruments, the guys kicked around the basic principles of design, marketing and selling DJ gear. And for the few out there who genuinely believe that NI is turning its back on the traditional market, Jared asks the question to get some clarification. And in true clickbait style, the answer might surprise you. But not us.

Watching this back, it’s clear that this is a tip of the iceberg video. So it’s my mission to fill in all the dots, and bring the whole subject to your screens in glorious detail in the coming months. But this is absolutely worth a watch in the meantime. You’ve got 30 minutes right?


Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
