It’s not just Denon DJ that has new shiny on the way. inMusic stablemate Akai Pro has put out a teaser video, one where music industry VIPs stand around oohing and aaahing about the thing that’s juuuust out of shot. But what is it?

Once again, I don’t play games, so I’m not going to write a fluff piece attempting to make you believe that I’m some sort of guru with my pinpoint accurate guesses. The reality is that like Denon DJ before it, I and every other major media outlet has not only got press releases and images, but has probably laid hands on this new stuff too. In the case of Akai Pro I haven’t seen it in the flesh yet, but from the reactions in the video combined with the info I have in front of me, I’m quite certain that you’ll like it when you see it.

As far as I can tell, there’s nothing whatsoever to be gleaned detail-wise from this clip — it’s a pure tension builder. But if you want to have a weekend laugh, when you watch it imagine that they’re all talking about a new coffee maker or Red Bull vending machine. Both of those are probably more useful to producers than a lot of the gear they have anyway. My personal favourite is to think of them seeing a new and completely made up Akai Airhorn Pro for the first time. 😉


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.
