  1. How to Manage Sample Libraries

    I'd love to see an article for managing large sample libraries. What's the best way to keep them organised, with suggestions of folder names, locations, and how to link these correctly to various apps like Traktor remix decks, maschine, DAWs etc.

        • Reviews about "underground" artists

          I would love to hear how other producers do their own tunes, what they like about their own style, what is their core tecnique and more. You can pick an "underground artists" (means like...skilled bedroom producers, not-famous artists...) every week, asking them some interesting question.

          WHY SHOULD YOU DO IT? Answer: WHY NOT? upcoming artists have a free mind, free way to approach stuff and I think it is usefull to listen to their words and tunes in order to get inspired and boost personal creativity.

          I am keen on this particular topic. If you need it I can help…

            • A poll : which effect do you think traktor is still missing(and you would implement into)?

              a simple poll for djtt community to suggest @ native instruments fresh ideas for new (amazing) effects for traktor!

              I start with my "request" :
              a simple traktor version of cable guys "Volume-Shaper",because imo it's very usefull having auto-shaped beats during mixing (example : cutting the first kick or the snares...etc)

              greatings to all and thanx for your work!!!

              • Tutorial: Mad Zachs Sample packs

                I really like Zachs sample packs, i think it would be great if he showed us how he makes them so we could make our own and share them on the forum. it would be good if you could include why he decided on the current layout, how he decides on sound design aspects, and how to liven up the samples (make more interesting/complex).

                • how to buy your first analog synthesizer

                  A night's worth of googling has led me to realize there isn't much in the form of up-to-date straightforward articles discussing how to research/shop for your first analog synth. Would be helpful to those of us who are interesting in working a bit outside the box!

                  • Hey guys, I'd like to read an article about putting together your own shows.

                    Not just "house night or Dubstep night" but rather an article about what it takes to book bigger named acts, and everything that's involved in putting on a once a month big time legit show with dope lights/sound, projection, etc. Would be interested to hear from an established promoter

                      • OEM DJ equipment and controllers from Asia.

                        I have seen a lot of OEM DJ equipment that looks to me like it is made in the same factory's as the Big brands in China. Lots of controllers and Dj equipment that has a KIRF image to people in the west. Is this stuff any good and are we being ripped off as DJ's are suckers for brands and image.
