    • Multiply your midi controller (Layers)

      The idea is simple.
      Create multiple layers (with midi pipe or max for live) for your midi controller.
      So your controller become a supermega controller
      Amen.

          • Sound Proofing Apartment Studio

            I just moved in to an apartment with some "older" folk in San Jose. I've been really itching to produce, but it's really hard to get into my work flow without having a decent level of volume. I'm worried about my neighbors complaining. Maybe you all could suggest some tips on efficient ways to soundproof my new home?

                • Mune - A Digital Instrument for Traditional Performance

                  I am reaching out today to share with you a new digital instrument we have developed called the Mune. We thought you may like to check out the Mune after seeing an article that one of your staff writers wrote about the Keith McMillen QuNexus. The design of our instrument is unique in the MIDI controller world and allows electronic musicians to perform in a way which frees them from the confines of their laptop setup. Having electronic musicians perform in a new way is our mission and we believe the design lends itself well to that goal.

                  The Mune…

                      • DJ Tech Riders! (DJ Bag vs Tech Rider)

                        I think it would be quite an interesting topic to know what you can put on your "DJ Rider" and what not. Which kind of technical equipment you can expect from the club to bring for you? If it is okay to request a CDJ 2000 why is for example some sort of Midi Controller like the Kontrol X1 not okay even though many DJs use one. Also is it okay to request a certain sound card (e.g. Rane SL3). I have heard some DJ do. How big in terms of fame, do you as a DJ have to be,…

                          • Share Ideas for better playlist management in Traktor

                            Hi to all DJ Tech Tool Pro's!

                            I have a question for all people using Traktor for DJ-ing..

                            Do you also have troubles to keep playlists updated?

                            I have set up quite a lot different smart playlists in iTunes (Traktor has no possibilities as such) e.g. Tracks divided by ERA, BPM-ranges, Genres, Ratings and so on.

                            Since Traktor cannot do this by it's self, I believe iTunes is the best place... but...

                            Of course my collection keeps growing and so these smart playlists get bigger automaticly.. I'd like to have these list also directly in Traktor so everytime before a…

                                Clyp is a platform to share WIPs and song ideas and get feedback on the music you're writing. They're becoming the go-to spot to share the music you're creating. It's a perfect tool for DJs/producers. Plus it's free and you don't need an account to use it.

                                  • Top cities to live in/start a DJ/Producer career

                                    I have grown up in Jacksonville NC, and as far as a music scene goes its nothing but metal and country. I have always read all of these great articles about promoting to local clubs and venues, but for here there is none!
                                    I have saved up a ton of money and am ready to move somewhere with real opportunity, and most of all an accepting community of like minded people.

                                    • Modular controller

                                      Saw a new controller setup from livid, it looks nice, but I think it falls a little short in available modules and on price point. The nice thing about it is that it's modular, so you can expand and reconfigure it. It would be cool to see you guys do something similar, but better. You can check it out here: http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2012/06/13/livid-elements-modular-eurorack-midi-controller-schwing/ I'm sure you'll immediately see the potential, and also some of the flaw/ideas for improvement: xy module, better arcade button module, jog wheel mod, etc.... I hope that you take this idea and roll with it, if not I…
