Hahahah. How typical. Sasha jumps on the tried and tested bandwagon and suddenly he becomes the "pioneer"... :roll: Is he going around calling himself a "pioneer?" Quotes... anywhere? It's much easier to hate a self-absorbed asshole who thinks he's changing the electronic music landscape than it is...

at least we can all see Sasha for who he is. Like BT, you will never henceforth know what is Sasha and what is "his team." The worst thing about Sasha that can be garnered from the original Midibox post is that he outsources his technical work. That isn't the worst thing in the world, especially fo...

interesting - some very intelligent posts in that thread. The guy who wrote that post above managed to separate the PR hype from the person himself - easy way to deflate a flame war. I don't think Midibox has a leg to stand on, though - if a DJ-friendly MIDI controller gets released by a big manufac...

not possible - sorry - you could route the audio to the DJM, but the DJM can't control MIDI.

Another hybrid DJ Mixer/MIDI controller

still in development (I think), the Ecler Nuo 4: http://www.futureproducers.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=46717805#post46717805 Besides being a pretty sweet DJ mixer, there's a channel strip in the middle with customizable push-button rotary encoders. I'm still trying to find out whether there...

um, well you will soon learn that with Ableton, there is absolutely no need for CDJ's. :D Actually, I've thought about this before: if you got a multi-input audio interface with low latency, and plugged your TTs/CDJs (phono preamps as necessary) into it, couldn't you turn Live + a basic MIDI contro...

just for the sake of... i dunno, something... i'm probably a producer first but i'm certainly a dj, or someone who has been playing techno forever. my issue with sasha isn't "dance music", it's that i don't like what he does. and the fact that due so heavily to the aforementioned Marketing, so many...

Ok, I'll jump right into Ableton and have a play, maybe I'll need to do it Mono, as I have no external sound card to have 2 stereo outs. What's a good device that you'd recommend looking into if you were to buy an external one? Audiophile? What I want to do is basically to sell my CDJ1000's, sell t...

yea they are wraped but i cant move the markers the little amounds needed to sound right... you still havent answer me tho.... do i have to make the perfect loops? no, the whole point of Live is that your loops don't have to be perfect. I think all you have to do is double click one of the times (i...

the quality and placement of the knobs/sliders seems very set-it-and-forget-it. ie: they seem very un-"play"-able.

they are. i made more loops and some seem to be good (but still not perfect...) any ideas? are these loops very long? If so, Live may not automatically set them in "warp" mode. Does changing the song's tempo still keep them in (relative) sync? (though if you're able to warp marker, you should be in...

it's worth the wait! I got to hear this yesterday, and it's a great listen. The DJ in me was really impressed with the track selection. The budding producer in me was always busy trying to figure out what was going on (in a good way). The casual listener in me was never bored listening to it all. Go...
