  1. 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.

  4. Rane hides from massive Serato on PC problems

    Here is a link to a thread showing how serious the problems are getting for PC users on Rane Mixers.

    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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  13. Resonic Player for ultra fast mp3 crate digging

    I've found this awesome (WIN only) software that is incredibly fast opening mp3's in folders + visual waveform.

    https://resonic.at/

    There is a free and a pro version. You even can chop parts out of the song on the fly.

    Have a look :)

    Cheers Thomson

  14. Xone 92 vs Xone PX5

    Hi Dj Techtools. I currently have A&H Xone 92. Before I get into detail, and before the 92 fans rip me into pieces, the 92 is deffinitely a great sounding mixer and offer a lot of "sound sculpting". However, I am the thinking of switching to a PX5 simply because the genre I play is house and would be fine with just 3 EQs. and also effects are quite awesome. However it only has one filter which can be a bit of a problem for me. Do you think it is worth switching? could you perhaps do a comparison ?

  15. Entry level 4 channel controller, stepping up from a 2 channel controller.

    I'm looking to upgrade from my ddj-sb to a 4 channel controller, but having a hard time comparing the models that are the next step up. I'm purely a bedroom dj and will occasionally spin a friend's house party (free of charge, for fun). I mainly spin house and techno, and am looking to make things more interesting by incorporating a couple more channels. I'm not looking for anything super high end or expensive, because this isn't a business expense, and I'm not sure which mid-priced controllers I'll be looking at.

    At the moment I'm comparing the S4 to a…

  17. Being able to make custom light effects or light shows on the midi fighter inside of the utility app

    I think that if you guys added in a feature in the midi fighter utility app, which allows you to make midi fighter light shows or custom light effects, that would be amazing, because I have been using the midi fighter in apps other than Ableton, and would love if I could make a light show without having to buy Ableton.

  20. ghost producer

    Hi there!

    I want to discuss with you a ability to make an article about ‘ghost producers’ in electronic dance music scene.

    Many DJs do not write their own music and use the services of the so-called "ghost producers».
    It happens when unknown musician makes a record and share his credits with a DJ, or even making non-disclosure agreement and not getting into track's title.
    There is a stigma about ghost production in EDM industry.
    It's been critisied a lot on internet that it's not fare to buy music and say that it's your own.
    But still then most of…
