Cast you minds back a couple of months — we featured Italian DJ John Type who had come up with a way to use sequencing with DJ software. Clever stuff no doubt, but now John has incorporated an Ableton Push 2 into his setup, complimented by the MIDI mapped Mixars DUO mixer.

Whilst I realise that this can be achieved with other hardware and software, I’m still impressed with John’s performances and evolving setups. Incorporating a MIDI mixer with audio interface linked to Ableton’s own hardware is probably the most efficient way to achieve this, and I hope that John and others continue to develop this idea. It’s certainly not pure turntablism, but definitely has a place in the digital DJ’s repertoire.

Good work John — keep it coming.


THE COMMENTS SECTION

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.
