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.
