The only one I know of for sure is Deckadance by the makers of fruity loops, Image-Line. It rewires, and I've heard great things about it. I use Virtual DJ - it's rock solid, and very easy to use. I plan on giving deckadance a try soon for the rewire capability.

Increasing performance on a slipping machine

My computer has been pretty rock solid as far as Live goes for a year and a half now... its a Toshiba satellite with 2gigs RAM, 1.6ghz core duo, 160 gig hard drive. Recently I noticed that my Live performance was starting to decrease... I was doing a remix and noticed that I only was able to load in...

Dj Mixer/Audio Interface

Does any company make a good combo? Or just recommend a controller in general. I've searched the forums and am overwhelmed. I've been looking at the BCD3000 from behringer and I just came across the Hercules DJ console. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Hercules-DJ-Console-RMX-DJ-Controller?sku...

Toshiba and Soundcard problem

So I have a Toshiba Satellite, and I've loved it up to this point. Everything has been great. WHen I use ASIO4ALL i have no problems. When I try to use my Xiosynth as a sound card, it locks up after 10-15 minutes. I have the most updated Novation drivers. I know it's not Lives problem because I have...

DJ Software and Library

A couple DJing related questions... For Djing in a club/bar setting, do you think Live would be overkill and/or require too much preparation? Would something simple that can be used on the fly like Virtual DJ Pro be better? I own both, and so far Virtual DJ pro seems to be easier to use, more stable...

Is there such thing as an entertaining DJ performance?

I've been watching a bunch of YouTube vids of DJs and solo artists playing live shows... and I am completely astounded by how boring everything is. They either use a projector and play something that looks like Windows Media Player kaleidoscope... Or just use a bunch of strobe/laser lighting. The ar...

My (potential) first live show

Hey everyone. I've been a serious user of Ableton Live since version 3, but for the majority of my "career", I have been using it in a rock band as a click for the drummer and backing tracks like keys and synths. For the past year or so I've been working hard on some electronic tracks and I'm intere...

I don't understand how it would be possible to not be able to compress 20 mb wav to 6 MB or so. I frequently render 50 MB wavs into mp3's at 320 kpbs using only the stock windows audio converter, and they end up around 8 MB. EDIT: Ah, I didn't realize the original poster wasn't already converting to...

Pocket POD is the same as the POD 2.0, which is outdated in my opinion. I would save up and get the X3 if you can.

For what it's worth, I still use my POD 2.0 all the time, and it still sounds great. But it's only because I haven't bought the X3 yet.

It's a tie. Between Timbaland and Tiesto.

Actually, that's not a bad idea. I may just have to start a side project... I will steal people's beats, and then add a certain undefinable element of genericism. Mmmm. The perfect combo.

Live 7 Suite ordering problem

So after waiting 3+ weeks for Ableton to process my educational upgrade to the Live 7 Suite, I've become disgruntled enough that I have decided not to do it. However, I'm in love with Live, and it is a program that I just can't do without so I'm still upgrading, but I think I'm just going to pay the...
