          • Keydetection in Rekordbox 3

            You have compare some key tools (http://www.djtechtools.com/2014/01/14/key-detection-software-comparison-2014-edition/ ).

            I was wondering, could you do this test over for Rekordbox 3. I ask you this, because the new engine is may be so good, that I do not need Mixing in Key 6.

            • Traktor Split Screen.

              Screen 1 details all my mixer controls and maybe sits in front of me and other screen shows all my playlist artwork and so on to my left or rightide. Also it would be nice if traktor shows a way that tells me how much of a track I played since I normally only play loops. For example I play 3 seconds of a song then it shows a check mark 3 hrs later I don't remember if I played the song or just a acapella clip..

              • Traktor Mapping with 2 or More Controllers

                I would like to see an article on Combined Mappings for Traktor. I rarely see any tutorials on how to map 2 or more controllers in Traktor and have yet to find a mapping for two or more devices for Traktor. (IE. Traktor S2 MK2 + Maschine Mikro MK2, Or Traktor S4 + Maschine + F1)

                • Traktor Kontrol S8 leak

                  How about a speculative piece on the Traktor Kontrol S8. Chances are that as retailer of Native Instruments you can't talk about the S8 due to NDA's and such but, maybe you can post the information that is currently on the Google and your viewers run with it.

                    • USB 3.1 and Beyond

                      It would be great to see this article updated to include USB 3.0, 3.1 and the new Thunder/Lightingbolt.

                        • 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?

                          • Tutorial/Article on what makes a good acapella

                            It can be hard to find good acapella's on the internet and especially online and it is hard to know what to search for, more people will search for simply just acapella's without knowing whether it is a good acapella or not. Usually modern songs are used but the acapella's used in some tutorials by Ean Golden show there are good acapella's out there!

                              • How to use samples while mixing

                                All of the major DJ softwares have a sampler feature and many people are adding external samplers like machine into their live set-ups. This article would explain how to add samples and simple loops into your set-up, what kind of samples to look for, and how to organise it all. This article would be based more around playing short percussive sounds over a track that's currently playing rather than building up a unique track out of loops.

                                • Replace your Laptop - new alternatives to the traditional laptop

                                  More and more devices pop up at the market which are verry performant and much more portable than a usual laptop. Some comparison between different tablet-pcs, deatachables and similar things with decent processing power and the systems you could build with them to seriously use them. Especialy the new Surface pro 4 seem to be a real alternative to usual laptops which i think about using.
