Re: DJ with Ableton through DJ mixer - best interface? 6-out?

To add to what Tarekith already said, if you get a DJ mixer with a built-in audio interface then you will eliminate some of the hassle of extra cables. There are a number of choices out there in the market for mixers which offer this. Allen & Heath Xone DB2, Xone DB4, Pioneer DJM-900, DJM-2000 would...

Re: Best MIDI Controller on market for 'DJing' with Ableton Live

Thanks for all the responses. The Xone K2 looks really good for a small option and it has it's own sound card too with 4 outputs; headphone L + R and master L & R, so I guess you wouldn't need an audio interface like an Apogee for a live set-up? I have the Xone K2 along with a Xone DB4 mixer. You a...

Re: Which new MacBook Pro to get

Also worth pointing out that the new MacBook Pro laptops do not include an ethernet port.
That means DJs must have a dongle to connect to CDJ-2000s. 8O

Re: Recording in Vinyl to be played in Ableton

Here is some advice for recording your vinyl, and some of these tips come directly from Tony Andrews of Funktion One. 1. Get a moving coil cartridge for your turntable. DJ cartridges are built for durability more than for sound quality. A good cartridge will make a difference. 2. Do not use a DJ mix...

Re: Ultimate Ears by Logitech; Capital Rec Mastering: Seen this?

The only reason that Logitech is involved with these ear monitors is because they purchased the company "Ultimate Ears" a few years ago. The Logitech name has no bearing on the quality. I personally own a pair of Ultimate Ears custom earphones. They were the less-expensive model which cost me about ...

Best settings for correcting tempo and rendering an AIFF?

I would like some suggestions for the following scenario: I purchase an AIFF file of a music track intended for DJ use. Upon inspection, I discover that the original AIFF file has a slightly fluctuating tempo throughout. Therefore I decide to use Ableton Live to warp the track and correct the changi...

Re: Lappie Quad core is out QX9300

Sony will give me hardware RAID but is it worth it. I have had hardware RAID 0 on my laptop since 2005, and it is SOOOO worth it. You wouldn't believe how much faster tracks load into Ableton when you've got 2 drives working together. Just make sure you back up your music often. You will be more vu...

For size vs price, you can't beat the Dell monitors.

Just got myself a 24" Dell widescreen LCD for $350. :)

One suggestion is to invest in a laptop stand. This will elevate the computer off the table to improve airflow. I use one for my PC laptop, and it makes a very noticable improvement in cooling. Then again, I don't know if your MacBook even has air vents that are being restricted? Do they have vents ...

Because Apple is a bunch of cunts and think that people are stupid enough to pay twice as much for their RAM. Unfortunately, a lot of people are stupid enough to pay it. :roll:

I have the Korg Zero8 and like it a lot. Have not used the Ecler so I can't compare against that, but the Korg is a nice controller.

Korg is still ironing out some issues on the Zero's, though.... so I wouldn't reccommend buying one just yet.
