  1. 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.

                • 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 :)

                  • 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 ?

                    • 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…

                        • 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.

                            Hola, enhorabuena por sus artículos, son muy interesantes y de gran ayuda.
                            Quería pedirles si pudieran ampliar información sobre los criterios para crear bloques de tres tracks (Triads), algo sobre las estructuras para formar las triads, key notes, energía, etc...

                            Muchas gracias.

                                • 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…

                                  • Podcasting - how to start and what to know

                                    I've read some info about podcasting and I would like to explore further. Apparently, there's a lot more to it than just making a DJ mix on a regular basis. I've also read a little about hosting, that it may or may not cost money, that you may need your own website, etc. If this is too big for an article, could someone point me in the right direction to get info elsewhere?

                                    • Launch control vs twister

                                      I'd love to see you guys do a review article of the Twister vs other knob controllers like the novation launch control. I'm in the market for a knob controller, and I'd love to see some of the pros and cons of this class of controller.

                                        • Karaoke DJing, How To Provide Karaoke Service!

                                          I really want to get more gigs as a DJ and there seems to be a need for Karaoke DJs in my area. How do I even get started? What kind of gear is needed? How do you even get a collection of Karaoke music and what kind of systems are available for playing Karaoke?
