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 …

Korg Monotron Duo & Delay

0

This year for Christmas my wife bought me the Korg Monotron Duo and Delay synths, and after a few days playing with them, I figured I would do a quick review.  I’ve had my eye on these for awhile, ever since I saw the review done on Sonicstate.com last year.  I wasn’t really expecting serious music making tools, but for …

QuNexus – Hands On

Earlier today I had the chance to meet the local Keith McMillen representative, and get an early preview of their new QuNexus controller.  I should stress that the unit I got to play with was an early prototype, and thus may not be identical to the production units.  It certainly felt like real product though, and has the same feel …

Changing The Korg EMX-1 Tubes

8

A couple years back I wanted to change the stock tubes in my Korg EMX-1 to see how more expensive tubes would sound.  I ended up recording and measuring the results for the Electribe forums over at: http://electribe-forum.com.  However, I still get a lot of questions on it, so I wanted to sort of archive it by reposting to my blog. …

Pocket Grooves

I’ve covered in past articles how much I like using portable devices to make music on the go.  From the early days of things like Bhajis Loops on a Palm TX, to more modern apps on the iPhone and iPad, I’ve found it really fun to get out of the studio and still be able work on music ideas. Even …

Elektron ECC-2 Review

0

Not the most exciting review, but I’ve had a few people asking me about the ECC-2 bag since I got mine.  Figured I’d do a quick video so people can see what it looks like, how big it is, and what the storage is like.  I also talk about a few things I wish were different about it as well.

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 …

lpTouch iPad app

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know about a pretty cool iOS app I have been using lately. I know I don’t normally post recommendations for apps in the blog, but this one I found especially useful.  If you have Logic and an iPad, this is a really easy to use Control Surface app that lets you control Logic …

Elektron Octatrack Review

20

Trying to review something like the Elektron Octatrack has turned out to be more challenging than I expected.  Mainly because it can be used in so many ways, it’s not easy to try and cover it from all angles.  Never the less, I’ll do my best, even if that means focusing more on the things that I personally use mine …

Octatrack Preview

5

Ok, so I lied about yesterday’s blog post being the last one of the year, oops.   As I mentioned then, I just received an Elektron Octatrack, and I’ve since been getting tons of people contacting me with questions about it and wanting to see some video.  So I knocked together this really quick before I start my mastering work …
