    • Midi Fighter Twister for ios

      It would be great to have a Midi Fighter Twister app for ios and Android that will sync to your network and work with your DAW just like the physical Midi Fighter or pair the app with the physical device to use as a display for parameter values in your DAW. The layout will match the Twister exactly but will have scribble strips in the app so you can see which knob controls which parameter.

      • Showkontrol

        I’ve seen a few articles on pro dj link hacks with references to unsupported software but can’t seem to find one about showkontrol which pioneer pro dj actually collaborated on? Except for the launch one.

            • Grid - modular midi controllers

              Hi,
              These guys are making modular midi controllers reality!
              I'm not affiliated with these guys but I'd love if you could cover their campaign and help them to make it happen.

              • A quantum leap forward in the plugin subscription model www.pluginplay.co

                If you are familiar with the field of audio, then you know that utilizing many and variable VST plugins and virtual instruments is necessary for the modern music production, mixing or mastering. Yet, in spite of the high cost of these tools, most artists prefer to own, rather than rent. Well, at least those that do not resort to software piracy to secure the tools of their trade.
                Why is that? One of the reasons is no doubt that many prefer the peace of mind which comes with owning a permanent right to use a given plugin, even if that…

                    • Use of Augmented Reality in Music Videos

                      Would love to fill you in on the technology that Vaylian and our creative director Damien D'Amico used on the new Claude VonStroke video:

                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZtiXSdgRCE

                      If it's a story you'd like to tell, hit me up for an interview. It's exciting to use Augmented Reality techniques in 2D music video.

                        • Playdifferently Model 1 Audio interfaces

                          I recently purchased a Model 1, its a great mixer. Im a Traktor user and have a NI Audio10. Id love something with D-Sub connecters to make the linking to the mixer easier. Playdifferently do suggest a couple of units, like the Antelope Orion 32 or the Universal Audio Apollo 16. These look amazing but cost the same price as the mixer. Is there anything on the market that would connect to the D-Subs for less money???

                          Great sight by the way.

                              • Rane hides from massive Serato on PC problems

                                We NEED the help of a reputable Dj News outlet like Dj Tech Tools to help us PC users get noticed.

                                Please have a look and there are many more troubled PC users than where this came from.

                                • Bad stability on Serato DJ and Windows PCs

                                  This would be EPIC.

                                  It is widely accepted as fact that a professional should be on a Mac and not a PC for Serato (or DJn in general). Most forums asking for PC help receive the solution "Go Buy A Mac".

                                  But is this right? Should this be the accepted norm? is not Serato made for PC and Mac?

                                  Myself and other PC users across the world would love a spotlight shined on the years poor PC development. For example, Serato Video runs horrible on PC but great on a Mac due to the way Serato uses the GPU on…

                                  • Change CDJ-400 USB 1.1 port to USB 2.0/USB 3.0

                                    Hey since the CDJ-400 just have USB 1.1 and it takes to load forever when you have a big usb stick inserted, it would be nice to post a tutorial to change the port to a newer usb standard.

                                      • DJ software on touch tablets (Windows 10, Android, iOS)

                                        How does different DJ software pair up with various tablets and operating systems for compact setups in general?

                                        Screen size, touch compatibility, OS compatibility etc.

                                        • Good Free Instrument Plug-ins for Ableton

                                          Hi,
                                          Recently I started working on Music Production. I'm enjoying it but I can't seem to find good FREE instrument plug-ins for Ableton.
                                          Are there FREE instrument plug-ins for
                                          1. Synth (Modern Sounds)
                                          2. Acoustic Guitar
                                          3. Electric Guitar
                                          4. Sitar
                                          5. Flute
                                          Looking forward for your advice,
                                          Thanks,
                                          VDJ meloboom
