    OSX 11 - Big Sur / M1 Silicone Chip

    If anyone is thinking of updating to Big Sur or upgrading your system to a new Mac with the M1 chip you may wish to hold off a little longer, unless you're using native Apple apps such as Logic Pro, Final Cut etc. I'm on the look out to do both, update my MBP to Big Sur and invest in a Mac mini with the M1 chip. I've been keeping my eye on what's compatible and what isn't and nothing much has changed in the last month or so, so I would suggest if you're thinking of doing the same just wait until maybe mid-year. In the meantime, if you're interested, jump onto Roaring Apps and search the applications you often use and their compatibility with Big Sur and with the M1 chip. New technology is exciting but also a massive pain in the ass for existing software. Hope this little tool helps anyone looking to upgrade.

    10 ways to make distinctive pad sounds

    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

    Hello All! It's been a while since I've posted so I thought I'd check in again. Have been out of the industry for 2 or so years, got fed up with doing weddings and kissing promoters asses to get the smallest of club gigs. I brought some new equipment to try doing it as a passion, but I was just so burnt out at that point that I just couldn't enjoy mixing anymore. Fast forward 2 years and here we are, those 900's I brought are still untouched but I can't bring myself to sell them. So I'm having one last crack at revitalizing my desire to DJ. As a side note, I also do photography for a local radio station for their events. No cash for em only drink cards, but that's how I want it to there is no pressure if I fuck up. Currently my goals are the following: Move my Rekordbox library to my Surface Pro which I take to work everyday to find songs on my train ride home. Submit a Mini mix to my local radio station. Do some Twitch streams of me DJ'ing on Friday nights with some beers in hand. Short of this not happening, I will sell my decks and put it to bed. Can't bring myself to sell my PA or Sub though!

    SL1200s and step-down transformers

    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.

    If you haven’t looked at Traktor DJ, Native Instruments’ iOS app (it runs on Mac and PC too) recently, a new update and the concurrent global stay-home happening seems like the perfect time to do it. The update to Traktor DJ 2.4 has a bunch of features that look like they’re straight out of a user feature request thread – mostly focused around the transport interface. Traktor DJ 2 vs Traktor Pro 3: A Refresher Traktor DJ 2 is the “rewrite” of the Traktor codebase, modeled after the Traktor DJ iOS app. It’s available on iOS devices, MacOS, and Windows. It has a lot of the functionality of Traktor, but it’s free, has SoundCloud Go+ integration, and track recommendations. It’s still just two decks – but we imagine it may replace Traktor Pro one day. Traktor DJ 2.4 features + changes Here’s what the Traktor team has shared as being the big feature additions and improvements in the 2.4 update to the app. Transport Bar can now be assigned to the left, right, or bottom on iOS Swappable Play / CUE buttons New “CUE slide-to-play” allows for holding CUE and sliding into Play Track genre is now visible, searchable, and sortable Track time displays next to each track in the browser (iOS) Increased track length limitation Improved Waveform readability Stripe Waveform now has 3 bands Tracks can now be played before analysis is complete Clock in the header Improved Browser view layout shows stacked decks when using waveform view (iOS) Overall, these feel like major quality of life improvements for DJs who use the app. UI customization based on user preference (assignable transport bar, play/cue button swapping, etc) has been a constant request of Traktor Pro over the years, but we’re betting that the more modern codebase of Traktor DJ makes such changes a bit more reasonable to implement. What Will The Future Bring for TDJ? First, let’s note something awesome: Traktor development seems to be continuing. It was a bit concerning last year to see all of the layoffs at Native Instruments followed by a likely global recession this year, but releasing an update is a great sign of life. For those wondering what’s really up next with the Traktor DJ project, the team shared a little bit more in their update post: We continue to prioritize what we work on based on your feedback, so please keep the requests and suggestions coming. We don’t have the time to answer every post here right now, but you can trust that we’re still listening. We have another exciting release coming early in the new year that should address a lot of the requests and issues mentioned here on the forum, so stay tuned for that.

    Tractor Scratch Vs Serato Scratch

    Scratch Response As the video above clearly demonstrates, both systems have excellent response. If you start to dig into the details there is one small difference that might affect hard-core turntablists – that Traktor Scratch uses a 2khz carrier signal on its control records (Serato uses a 1khz). This higher frequency means better tracking of super slow record movements. CONTROLLER IMPLEMENTATION Serato has midi implementation but it’s very limited. It’s easier to use than Traktor’s midi-window thanks to their direct midi learn utility but that also greatly limits what you can control. Basic midi mappings are available but very simple modifications to those mappings are not. One example would be the new effects in Scratch live. I would like to map a button to turn on the FX only while I am holding down a button but right now it only supports a toggle action with no way to modify the behavior. For those that just want to map a cue points or other simple commands this is really not a problem but for the more adventurous DJ’s you’re going to hit a dead end quite rapidly. Traktor’s biggest strength (imo) lies in their midi-mapping interface. Almost anything you can imagine a controller doing is possible within Traktor. This makes actually creating midi-mappings somewhat daunting but those that brave this territory will find rich spoils await. Many of you may have no interest in ever touching a midi mapping but this system benefits everyone- by enabling others (like this site) to invent new ideas in DJing and share them with you. The VCI-100SE is the greatest example of this. We literally re-invented the way a controller should work without ever building one and that creation is accessible to anyone in the world through a single import button. Enabling the creative power of the crowd through API’s and flexible midi mappings will mean better products and new ideas. In our opinion, all companies should embrace this concept and tap into the creative ideas of their users. STABILITY Serato has a well-earned reputation of stability. They have consistently prioritized performance over features, which have earned them the respect and dedication from many DVS djs around the world. Beta Tests and extra features aside it remains that way today. After putting the trials of Final Scratch behind them- Traktor re-engineered their system from the ground up to make it rock solid. The results are significant- consistent stability and performance for the live DJs that rely on their software night after night. The Rub: With each company trying to take over the other company’s territory- they are both basically meeting squarely in the middle of the performance and features balance. Traktor has greatly streamlined their system to make it easier to use resulting in a better product with less features. Serato on the other hand has been adding features, which has built out the offerings but effected stability to some degree. Both are good to go for a solid crash free set but neither is exactly bug free. Popularity You have to admit that the opinions of others are a big sway in purchases. If all your friends drive Fords, it’s going to be tough to go with Chevy. In general its safe to say that Serato is very popular in the US and Traktor has a solid hold on the market in Europe. These generalizations aside both groups are making in-roads into their competitions territory. Based on search volume, interest in Traktor in picking up in the US and is now almost equal to search traffic for Serato: Popularity will have a big effect on your experience with a system. Serato, for example, is ubiquitous in almost all nightclubs in the US. Walk up with your laptop and headphones, plug into the pre-installed Serato box and you are ready to go- no fumbling with cables or awkward switchovers. This is a big incentive for DJs that want convenience. If Traktor manages to re-engineer the TTM-57SL and make it a Traktor approved sound card they could eliminate that problem in one quick move but that’s not likely to happen any time soon. BUILT IN FX With Traktor totally dominating this space for so long, Serato finally sucked it up and added effects to their software. To make up for the midi-mapping situation they even threw in a nice nod to this site and controllerism by adding super knobs to the interface. Customize and control multiple effect parameters with one single knob- way cool. Interface features aside though, the effects themselves still leave a fair amount to be desired. The usual suspects, delay, filter, and beat crush are all their but its going to take a while to perfect the sounds and get everything working really well. NI has been engineering stellar FX in Reaktor for many years so this is one space that they excel in. While the FX are harder to use right out of the box thanks to their legacy effects interface- the actual sounds and potential of the effects in Traktor are definitely the best on the market. With contributions from people like Tim Exile and their Reaktor team expect more mind bending effects combos in the future that will sonically re-arrange any tune instantly. MULTIPLE DECKS Traditionally a 2-deck software, Serato recently announced the addition of 2 more decks to their software. To access these decks, however you must purchase the associated hardware (the standard SL1 box will not work with more than 2 decks). For 3 decks, you will need the new SL3 box and to get all 4 you need to purchase the $2500 Rane 68 mixer. Having 4 decks is one thing. Actually using them all is another problem entirely. Serato still does not offer any real automatic beat matching or beat grids, which means you have to keep all 4 pieces of music in time manually- quite the task indeed. The new Ableton bridge implementation may solve this problem to a degree. In theory, running an Ableton session in a deck would allow you to keep multiple loops running in the background without worrying about train wrecks. Traktor has had 4 decks for several years and thanks to their internal mixing paradigm- you can use all 4 without the need to extensive external mixing hardware. Traktor’s real strength however is in their beat gridding and automatic beat matching system, which can very effectively keep multiple pieces of music in time for you. While some may call this cheating- we think its just common sense. Manually beat-matching multiple loops live is dangerous, time-consuming and does nothing for the crowd. I would prefer the piece of mind and extra time to do other more enjoyable activities. For those that want to keep it real without the danger- You can also go half and half by manually beat matching 2 songs and then keeping the extra 2 decks locked to one of those 2 tracks automatically. FEATURES Instead of a full blow by blow feature comparison. Here are a few of the more important points of differentiation. Sound Quality Sound Quality is a very subjective beast, so I am going to stay clear of making any pronouncements and just let you know what I have heard from other professional Djs. The SL1 was notoriously “crunchy” and many Djs that did side by side sound comparisons with Traktor’s audio 8 said that the NI hardware outperformed Rane’s audio interface. The new Sl3 interface with its higher sample rates seems to have vastly improved the sound quality but some Dj’s still swear that Traktor “sounds” better. This is hard to quantify, but we can tell you that the audio 8 and audio 4 are slightly louder than the scratch live interfaces. A note from our favorite benefactor ” Dr. Reality Check“ Kids- With regards to sound quality- you need to keep in mind that your deaf- they are drunk and the sound system is in mono and distorted. In this kind of environment subjective listening tests go out the window. BOTTOM LINE Both systems have their strengths and weakness so it’s better to pick a platform that’s a good fit for your needs. Traktor now makes a tool that converts Serato libraries into their format making it easier to try both, and I would not be surprised if Serato soon does the same. For electronic music djs that want access to multiple decks and a flexible auto sync system across multiple decks- Traktor is going to be hard to beat. For the 2-deck party DJ that wants simplicity and ease of use – its clear why Serato remains the popular option with hip-hop and party DJs in the United States. For controllists, the field is starting to get slightly more level but Traktor’s effects and midi implementation is still in the lead. At the end of they day, we don’t care what you use to play music- as long as the dance floor is rocking. written by Ean Golden edited by skank

    A Beginner’s Guide To Audio Cables

    It might be a bit terrifying to older DJs, but many new DJs don’t know anything about audio cables, wiring, and pre-amps. In today’s article, guest contributor DJ Soo shares a back-to-basics guide on audio cables. This is essential reading for every new DJ – pass it along and share your own must-know knowledge in the comments. Why Do Most New DJs Not Know About Audio Cables? For decades, stereo systems were largely component-based gear requiring a certain level of knowledge and understanding to get home hi-fi systems up and running, with various components sending signal to each other. There were separate amplifiers, turntables, CD players, cassette decks, etc – and each had to connect to one another to get sound to the speakers. Wiring a hi-fi system is a skill of the past. In the last 20 years or so, the way we listen to music has drastically changed. The home stereo is no longer the source of music. Computers and phones are how most people consume their music, and the industry has focused on creating technology devoted specifically to them. Most home audio setups rarely need more than a 1/8” cable, USB cable, phone dock, or a Bluetooth connection. DJing and PA systems on the other hand, still remain firmly entrenched in a more traditional use of audio cables to connect various components and there may be many younger DJs that are not fully familiar with the various types of cables available and how each functions. So with that said, here’s a beginner’s guide to the different types of audio cables you’re likely to meet as a DJ. Editor’s Note: Many of these concepts might be obvious to most veteran DJs – but they are all included here to act as a comprehensive guide. Signal Flow The inputs and outputs on a DJM-900NXS The first thing to understand about audio is that it is very linear. There is generally either an output or an input. When it comes to audio connections, Output refers to the sound coming out of those ports, while Input refers to ports that receive that sound. This is what is known as “signal flow” or “signal chain.” Outputs should be connected to inputs along the chain of devices. For instance, when connecting a device like a CDJ or controller to a DJ Mixer, you want the CDJ outputs sending audio to your mixer inputs for their respective channels. On a standard DJ mixer, your MASTER, BOOTH, and REC OUT will be your outputs while your channel ports will be your inputs. Left/Right Audio cables are often colored red and white to easily track which side is connected to which channel. This one is fairly obvious – the tracks you DJ with are almost always produced in a stereo field. This means the signals for the left and right speakers differ. In most audio gear, that means separate ports and cables are required for the left and right side of the signal. Traditionally, the right side port will be colored red, while the left side will be white or black. The coloring on the cables makes no functional difference – they’re just an easy guide to keep track of where things are plugged in. Male/Female Connectors + Plugs The terms “Male” and “Female” in regards to cables and ports refers to the type of connectors of the cables. Male connectors plug into things, while Female connectors have things plugged into them. I’ll let you figure out where the terms originated from. Most cables used in DJing will have male ends on each side, with the female connections as the ports on the hardware. With XLR cables (more on them below), there’s almost always a male and female end, with outputs on hardware almost always being male and inputs almost always being female. Balanced/Unbalanced There’s a wealth of technical reasons and descriptions differentiating Balanced and Unbalanced cables using such jargon as “differential,” “reversed polarity,” “phase cancellation,” and so on, but instead of getting into that, let’s stick to the practical application – the most important thing for DJs to know: Unbalanced cables tend to be more prone to interference and added noise once getting beyond a certain length (about 15-20 feet) Balanced cables tend to have less noise and allow for longer cables In order to use balanced cables, the hardware must also have balanced outputs. This will be labeled on the gear. If you have to use long cables, you should always try to use balanced cables and outputs! Of the most widely used cables: RCA is always Unbalanced XLR is always Balanced 1/4” can either be Balanced (TRS) or Unbalanced (TS) Here’s a great quick explanation of the two concepts on YouTube by Joe Gilder: Pre-amps Amplifiers do pretty much what the name states: it amplifies power and in the case of audio, the volume. Audio output from computers, CDJs, phones, and other non-analog devices is what’s known as line level audio. This is a specific range of volume output by devices. There are, however, certain devices that output considerably quieter or weaker signals that require an extra stage of amplification to output at a similar volume. The two most commonly encountered pieces of gear for DJs will be turntables and microphones. The inputs on a DJ mixer often have selectable phono preamp or line level inputs – like on the back of this Rane Sixty Two DJ turntables require what’s known as a phono pre-amp to get vinyl at a similar volume level as a CDJ or controller. Almost all DJ mixers will have built-in pre-amps, and some of the more modern turntable options also have built-in pre-amps. Phono inputs on DJ mixers are specifically for turntables and nothing else as they have a specific layer of EQing required to make vinyl sound like real music (known as the RIAA EQ curve). If you’ve ever plugged in a turntable into the Line input of a mixer and heard a quiet signal or worse, or plugged a CDJ into the Phono input and heard a loud, distorted mess of a signal, it’s because of the pre-amp (or lack thereof). Microphones also require a pre-amp as passive mics also tend to be very weak compared to line level sound. Most line or front-of-house mixers have both line level and mic level inputs that can be plugged into. Unlike phono pre-amps, the input does not alter the sound outside of amplification so it is possible to plug a line level output into a mic input and drastically lower the gain to prevent clipping. Some mixers will also have what’s known as a “pad” option which automatically adjusts down the level by about 20 db essentially converting the input into a line level input. Audio Cable Types RCA Cables RCA is one of the most ubiquitous cable formats in audio gear. Developed in the 1940s, it has remained largely unchanged since and continues to be one of the standard cables for linking audio components. This cable is used for everything from CDJs to mixers to main outputs to stereo systems. Due to the unbalanced nature of RCA cables, they are best used for shorter distances. This is fine connecting a CDJ to a mixer or a controller to a mixer, but for entry-level mixers and controllers that only have RCA outputs for the mains, it isn’t recommended to connect directly to a PA system if the cables are going to be longer than 15-20 feet just due to the increased risk of noise and interference. RCA cables can also be used for S/PDIF or Digital Outputs although a specific cable (75ohm cable) is supposed to give the best results. This is most commonly seen in higher end Pioneer CDJs and Nexus mixers. TRS / TS Cables TRS stands for Tip Ring Sleeve which is another ubiquitous cable format alongside TS which is simply Tip Sleeve. The most commonly seen usage of the TRS connector is the 1/8” or 1/4” jack used in headphones. These cables are also used as PA Speaker cables, microphones, and instrument patch cables. Outside of headphones, in the DJ world, they are often used as main outputs or booth outputs. The important thing to note: these cables can either be balanced or unbalanced. TRS cables are balanced while TS cables are unbalanced. The easy way to tell the cables apart is that TRS cables have an extra plastic ring around the jack rather than the single in a TS cable. XLR Cables XLR cables are one of the standard cable formats for pro audio. Unlike most audio cables, XLR will almost always have two different ends – one male and one female. XLR outputs and inputs are most commonly used for main outputs on mixers or higher end controllers or for microphones. XLR cables are popular in the pro audio world for a few of reasons: They are always balanced – it’s very easy to run long cables They lock into place – making it more difficult to get accidentally unplugged Due to the dual connector ends, it’s very easy to link up a series of shorter cables together for a longer run If you’re building up a mobile PA system, this will be the cable you will most likely use the most to connect speakers. SpeakOn Cables SpeakOn cables are most often used in higher end and larger PA systems – festival and concert rigs and the like. DJ gear does not use SpeakOn connectors – they’re used to connect amplifier racks to passive speaker rigs. The advantages to SpeakOn cables is the greater shielding to prevent interference or even electrical shock, more durable and thicker cables, and a superior locking mechanism. Newer passive speakers (i.e. requiring separate amplifiers) will often sport SpeakOn connectors vs XLR connectors on powered or active gear. Speaker Wire I’ve always hated speaker wire. It’s messy, ugly and hard to deal with. They were the standard for HiFi systems for decades. It’s essentially two raw bundles of small copper, wrapped in rubber, with the copper exposed on each end. This wire is used to connect an amplifier to passive speakers. If you’ve ever had to ground a Technics to a ground post with the grounding fork missing, connecting speaker wire is the same, but more of a pain. Speaker wire is essentially two wires melded together – a positive and negative side. The exposed wires are often twisted up and jammed into a clip connector or a binding post (similar to a grounding post). Some speakers will have special connectors you can attach to the wires to make it simpler. Bonus Concepts + Additional Notes Combo Jacks Combo jack Mic inputs on the back of a VCI-400 Combo jacks are jacks that can take both XLR and 1/4” TRS/TS cables. They are always female so they always function as inputs. These are most commonly found in active speakers. Adaptors There are times that certain pieces of gear require different connectors on each ends (for example, connecting a DDJ-SR – which only has 1/4” outs – to a pair speakers that only have XLR inputs). The easiest way to solve this is to use either adaptors or cables with different connectors on either end. Want to change cable types? There’s seemingly an adaptor for every possible situation. If you can think of a combination of connectors, then an adaptor or cable exists for it. While adaptors are convenient, I tend to gravitate towards dedicated cables (or in the case of XLR, they also function as adaptors – just with a length of wire between them). Adaptors can be bulky and in the case of some manufacturers of connectors, aren’t the most snug leading to signal loss or noise. Add to that, given that most DJ gear tends to plug in horizontally, heavier adaptors can stress the plugs – which can end up damaging your gear. Converting unbalanced to balanced signal If you have a mixer or controller which only has RCA or unbalanced 1/4” outputs and you want the option of running cables longer than 15 feet, there are a couple of ways to convert the signal to a balanced output. The first is a DI or Direct Box which is a small unit that is purpose-built to convert the signal into a balanced output. They come in different sizes and styles some which are very basic and others which have a host of more features. Best bet is to find one that supports stereo inputs and outputs, otherwise a pair of boxes will be required. The other option is to run the device into a separate mixer with balanced outputs. There are plenty of small-size and affordable mixers which accept RCA or 1/4” inputs and have balanced XLR or 1/4” outputs. The added benefit of these mixers is that it allows for an extra gain stage to boost volume. This is especially useful for entry-level devices that tend to have lower output. A DJ mixer will also function well for this application – so venues with any type of house mixer will work fine.

    Serato v Traktor

    Personally I like Serato if for no other reason than Serato DJ comes bundled with many controllers. Might sound like a silly point, still makes it easier to reinstall and update when you don't have to worry about serial numbers. I've had to reinstall while standing behind my NS7 watching guests turning up to a function - bad time for my gear to play up. In terms of functionality, I like Serato DJ's interface. Easy to use, quick to learn.

    Came across this article - I wasn’t aware you could order instruments and effects to put the most used ones at the top! https://audioordeal.co.uk/ableton-features-you-didnt-know-that-you-probably-should/

    Pioneer CDJ-3000

    Yeah I can’t see many places adopting these until the current units start to fail/need replacing. Nothing compared to the CDJ1000 -> 2000 where they introduced USB sticks (i.e. game changer).

    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 😍

    Sends and returns in Ableton (Lols inside)

    Had a good lol at this (it’s informational at the same time) Also, what I was actually looking for was a video to post regarding use of returns within an Ableton drum rack, which this outlines pretty well.

    New features seem nice, but price just to get cloud sync is expensive.

    Ableton Live Enhancement Suite

    Haven’t tried it yet, but saw it mentioned online elsewhere and definitely looks interesting. Not sure how stable it is - I’ll do a bit more investigating.

    I thought this argument was reignited and was just about to wonder why until I saw the date. Time's have changed mate

    What’s up guys, I’m looking for a singer/ songwriter to record some lyrics for a demo I have. It’s an Edm track that has a future bass style to it. I’m interested in all types of voices, so please send my account a message, and we can work things out from there!

    not bad for $3 or $7.50 for what seems like a fully functional mpc id still prefer my tank at home, but i could see this eliminating the need for the smaller portable one

    These ones are the most popular? The amount of these services online is overwhelming and there are some pretty big differences between them... still trying to figure out wich one to use and why. 😵
