It's a DJ's job to make people dance by playing music. It's as simple as that. You can also try to be an artist , a performer , or an MC , but if the people on the dancefloor aren't shaking their asses, you sure aren't doing your job as a DJ. Remember, you don't have to care if your peers think what...

Re: Ergodex DX1, a better SpeedPad?

Woah Steve, thanks! I think you've stumbled onto a real gem there. I'm tempted to scrap my midi controller project and just get one of these!

Re: Zabiela- Ableton Live DJ Mix

you sure this is him using Live? He's kinda the master with his CDJs, I can't imagine he's moved over to Live.... In fact, he just played recently with Sasha, and still used his CDJs, even though he had access to Sasha's computer/controller the whole night. Yes it is him using Ableton. Before the s...

Re: Sourcing MP3s or even better, WAVS - for DJs

I know most djs have turntables, and buy their records from over the counter shops, however, I don't want to have to invest in a few hundred quid for a decent turnatable and mixer/amp, or invest in a soon to be obsolete format ;) just to get some mp3s/wavs for use in my sets. I'm the biggest pro-di...

Re: Zabiela- Ableton Live DJ Mix

Check out this Ableton Live DJ mix from James Zabiela on John Digweed's Kiss 100 Show The second hour is Zabiela and it's pretty sweet! Lot's of use of Ableton's time stretching and looping capabilities. It will only be up there another few days so listen soon. Enjoy! you sure this is him using Liv...

no, though Stompy.com and beatport.com do, I think.

I'm going to D/L vers 4 demo, and give it a spin, I'll also D/L the User Manual posted on this site, which I'm sure will contain all of the info i am looking for, and be considerably more thorough, then the pdf that came with 2.1 4 is light years ahead of 2 - hopefully you'll find it to your liking...

hey, isn't there a knob on the face of the FA-101 that allows for automatic split-cueing (the OUT1-2/MONITOR knob)?

Can you send the main output to OUT1-2, then the cue to MONITOR? If so, then that knob is perfect for ya.

Re: Ableton Live DJ Edition

Why do people keep asking that. Traktor is an unstable pile of junk :roll: because people don't want to see Live, a sequencing instrument, turn into a "traditional" DJing application. That was never the Abe's intent, I think. The fact that you can DJ using Live is a byproduct of its main use as a s...

Re: Ableton Live DJ Edition

There's plenty talk about this going on so how about people throw in their ideas just incase Ableton decide to go with it. The warp engine is great so I'd stick with that but an Auto BPM engine like the one used in Traktor would be good to get it close. A large mixer view with much bigger level met...

I was hoping this would be a thread devoted to feature requests for the broswer pane. Some of these are other people's ideas, some of these are mine, I just wanted to consolidate them in one place. I imagine there are already workarounds for some of these requests. If so, please post them as well :)...
