Chroma Caps Review

  Noting too deep this time around, but I wanted to take a quick minute to review the new Chroma Caps replacement knobs I recently got for my Traktor S4 controller.  I had posted a couple pictures of it on Facebook and had a lot of people asking me about the new knobs.  I just assumed people know about these …

My DJ Dilemma

5

DJing. Lately for me this has been a thorny issue, not for what it is, but because I haven’t been able to make up my mind how I want to do it for the foreseeable future. For the last 7-8 years I’ve been using Ableton Live to DJ, and it’s been working out great. I’ve gotten a lot of exposure …

Preparing For Gigs

6

Since my last post about nerves before a gig, I’ve had a lot of people asking what I do to prepare for my live shows.  I’ve covered some of this in the past in my Playing Live Guide, but it’s worth covering the basics again. The first thing, obviously, is having a live set ready to perform in the first …

Nerves

4

Less than a week away from my next big gig, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I wasn’t feeling some butterflies, just like I always do.  Which is really weird for me when I think about it, because I’ve been playing live electronic music in front of people since just about when I started writing music in the …

Strings & Theories DJ Mix

1

It’s been awhile since I did a DJ mix, and with summer coming along nicely now, I figured it was time for some fun, groovy music.  This one was done in Traktor 2.5 with the Kontrol X1 and my Xone62.  A Traktor Audio 6 DJ was used for all IO.  I have to say, the new tempo and beat detection …

The iOS DJ?

3

Ever since the iPad was first released, I’ve been intrigued about using it for DJing. Light, portable, decent storage, and more than enough power for basic DJing. Plus, for your average DJ, more than enough screen space for controls to handle mixing two tracks. Of course you can also use one of the many iPad DJ controllers coming out now …
