  1. Today
  2. Drug money. No need for it
  3. Last week
  4. idk, maybe dead maybe not. His mixes live on
  5. Thank you!!! I'll firstly deal with the mixer, and as soon as I'll be choosing speakers and headphones, I'll turn to you for advice 😍
  6. New(ish?) wireless device. Has some basic built in sounds and functionality, however you get some pretty awesome capability when pairing it to your PC (works with MIDI over Bluetooth) and using their Max for Live plugin https://artiphon.com/pages/orba-by-artiphon Here’s a vid of a guy mapping it in Ableton
  7. Earlier
  8. In that case, some options for an entry level all in device would be something like: Pioneer DDJ400. This uses rekordbox software. Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2. This uses Traktor software. For something a bit more advanced, you can get the Pioneer DDJ800 or Traktor Kontrol S4. Pioneer also have some more expensive all in one units which allow you to copy music to a USB stick and play without the laptop. However, if you’re just starting out the entry level models would be OK. To get up and running, you’ll need to pair the above with a set of speakers (also known as “monitors”) and a set of headphones. Not a hard and fast rule, but the better quality stuff costs more. If you want some recommendations for these let me know 👍
  9. No, I don't have any equipment. I planned on a laptop-based setup. Budget is not a question, I'm ready to spend as much money as needed for a good working device.
  10. Came across this software at the Melbourne Ableton user group Melbourne. Pretty cool software made in New Zealand, company is run by former CEO of Serato. It basically allows you to connect MIDI keyboard, pad controllers, and drum kits to your computer, then has a series of lessons that aim to improve your skills playing each instrument. Would definitely recommend if you're looking to sharpen your skills. https://melodics.com
  11. Great timing given most clubs are shut and what not, but Pioneer have nevertheless released the CDJ-3000. https://www.pioneerdj.com/en-au/product/player/cdj-3000/black/overview/ AUD4000 a piece.
  12. The Numark M2 is a mixer only. With this type of setup, you need to have 2 audio sources (usually turntables/CDJs) to plug in, then the Numark just mixes them together. to help recommend something appropriate: 1) Do you have any existing equipment? 2) Are you planning on/prefer a laptop-based setup, or prefer a standalone system which you can play music off USB drives?* 3) budget? *If going laptop-based setup, you need something relatively stable for it to work without issues.
  13. Saw these online, thought I’d share here.
  14. It's been some time since you've posted it, but what do you think about Numark M2? I consider buying it. I am a complete newbie and don't know a word about dissent equipment. So I would be very happy if you share your opinion on this device.
  15. Actually really good article, thanks for sharing
  16. is he even still alive, don't see him on socials anymore
  17. Do you have turntables already? If so, DVS (Digital Vinyl System), also known as “time code” may interest you. The X1/K2 controllers are designed with DVS in mind. With this setup, you use a special vinyl record and sound card which allows you to use your analog turntables as a jog wheel. You can then use the X1/K2 controller to navigate and choose tracks, set hot cues etc.. with this setup you don’t need play/pause as you use the turntable for that. Traktor and Serato are the two most popular software for this functionality.
  18. I'm confused about controllers without jog-wheels or jog-wheel-type functions (and multiple Youtube videos have not made me any wiser!) but can still select/cue/play (Ie I realise some controllers are purely for effects or remix etc.)This is about adding basic digital capability to a vinyl/analogue set-up.For example: if I have a Xone:K2, can I map track selection, cueing and play functions? That is, can I use this set-up ... laptop>K2>analogue mixer ... to play tracks on laptop (using Traktor) but with total control from the K2 controller - so track/folder selection, cueing, play, pause, etc?Obviously the Traktor x1 can do this as it has a dedicated track select pot + the touch strip that replaces jog wheels.I'm new to digital djing so excuse my ignorance. What I want is a minimal controller that will remove any need for me to be fiddling with the laptop itself - so I need it to be able to select, cue and play! Because of my style of music I don't need to scratch or do anything fancy - just select a track from a folder; find where I want to start it from; and play it!Thanks

  20. Nice article on Ableton’s blog https://www.ableton.com/en/blog/pad-it-out-10-ways-make-distinctive-pad-sounds/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=ableton%2Fblog
  21. Hi All, I've created a video for the Acid Mint "Spirit World" dark DnB track, using some free video creation software that my laptop struggles to deal with. I've not done any video work before, so I'm trying to learn as I go along. See what you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toJOwPv1iQo Thanks!
  22. Nope, I used a step down and it was fine. Turntables are very low power consumption so you'd only need a 50w one for 2 turntables (plus a Japanese Y adaptor). I bought one very similar to this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/50-Watt-Japanese-Isolated-Step-Down-Transformer-Voltage-converter-100V-SD100-50/252419714651?hash=item3ac5632e5b:g:mnQAAOxyTMhR8M1a&frcectupt=true and had no issues. Re: audio quality, I can't say it's 100% unaffected (but it almost certainly should be), but if there is any difference it'll be imperceptible.
  23. Don’t believe so. Plenty of people use the transformers. Just get something better than your cheapo bargin bin transformer (don’t want it blowing up your tables) and you shouldn’t notice anything different. Turntables are a phono output, so power is just driving the motor.
  24. My electrical engineering knowledge is not what is should be. Are there any potential problems powering SL1200s long-term with a step-down transformer (to convert from 100v, for Japanese models)? Is audio quality in any way affected (I ask this cos I know audiophiles are fussy about their power sources)? Cheers
