Technics finally pull the plug on their DJ turntables... (cue sound of a turntable winding down having just tripped over the power cable)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Sunday, October 31, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 


I had to see this on two separate sites before finally committing digital letters to a virtual page about it. It looks like Technics apparently finally decided to cease production on their iconic 1200 series DJ turntables. Ok these things were apparently built to last forever (if not a long time) but no doubt even this fantasy measure of almost infinite like durability will still gradually see a more realistic slow trickle of 1200 series turntable making their way to the Technics place in the...

2.13GHz core 2 duo Macbook Air, 4GB of DDR3 ram with SSD??!

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Saturday, October 30, 2010, In : Ultra portables laptops 


With no manila envelope anywhere to be seen this time round the latest refresh of the Macbook Air sees a few additional options that could give digital DJ fans with the kind of cash to drop on one of these things a reason to possibly take a butchers at the top end of the configurable range for even greater portability. The 13 inch version optionally gives you the choice of a 2.13GHz core 2 duo processor with 6MB of cache over 1.86GHz and there's also the option to max out at 4GB of 1066MHz dd...

Clutter free turntablism

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Saturday, October 30, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 



I didn't think it was possible to get any working two turntable rig this visually calming and clutter free. But evidently it is judging by these press snaps. The sight of it was just enough to make me pause in empty thought for a minute or two like I was watching water trickling over Zen stones as the world kinda jus...

... then Mr tickle asked me what I was talking about and I was suddenly back in the real world.

Traktor pro officially half price (limited period)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Saturday, October 30, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 



Zero4 (and none Zero4 owners with the appropriate hardware to run it on) wanting to try out vinyl emulation might be interested to know that the Native instruments Traktor pro vinyl emulation software is now officially retailing for half price at their official website. Meaning its now 99 euro instead of the usual 200 in Europe or $99 if you happen to be stateside.



Basically the Zero4 already has the hardware to run the Traktor pro software built into it so no need to buy an additional NI inte...

Faderfox colaboration brings more fantasy turned reality to the table

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Thursday, October 28, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 




Not content with just updating their main stable range of midi controllers it looks like they've also gotten into some sort of collaborative effort with Glansmann Digital DJ Solutions which seems to have spawned what can only be best described as a full 4 track midi controller with glide rail sliders going by the name "4 midi loop". Yeah that's right, its pretty much a midi controller that takes the entire layout of a fully featured 4 channel DJ mixer with all the rotary knobs, buttons, and s...

Faderfox see's a 3rd round of refreshes across the entire range (DJ3, DL3, DX3, FX3, and FT3)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Thursday, October 28, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 



There's  probably more then a fair few Ableton and Traktor users out there that are familiar with Faderfox's line of ultra compact purpose built Midi controllers including myself having picked up a second generation Ableton controller a while back for it to have pretty much always played some part in my rig in some form or other ever since. Well it looks like its out with the old and in with the new as the entire range sees a complete refresh for the third iteration which apparently was partl...

Hard to find Korg Zero4 cases...

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 




Despite Korg's Zero4 DJ mixer having been out for quite some time there generally still seems to be a lack of some kind of off the shelf flight case that you can buy to help protect it from any unexpected bumps and knocks whilst generally transporting it due to its non standard size. Unless that  is you live in the US, in which case you can look to eBay for a custom ready made ATA flight case from the New York Case company. They ship anywhere within the US at the price of $99 with free shippi...

Finally bridging the gap...

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Saturday, October 23, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 




Having nearly fallen off my seat...

Oh man I haven't had a rush like this since my last memorable big night out during the peak of the honey moon period in the thick of my back to back disco biscuit chomping days or possibly even the first time I got it on with my now Missus. What was it to have got my haemoglobin pumper doing serious overtime but in a good way whilst leaving me more then a little overwhelmed as I tap this out at a million miles per hour?

Having previously visited the Ableto...

BEHOLD!! The Laptop hum eliminator/phono ground loop isolator!!!

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Thursday, October 21, 2010, In : Digital audio Production & DJ gear 



Hardly Hi-tech but damned useful...

I think many a digital audio DJ has come across this whist testing DJ or digital audio production software in conjunction with their built in internal audio sound card/device on their laptops. I'm talking about the audio hum which makes many think hum free audio is only achievable via some sort of external purpose made audio interface. (myself included)

Even more strangely, on my particular machine I don't actually get any audio hum when monitoring the buil...

VMware 7.1.1 update out now

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Wednesday, October 20, 2010, In : software 




If you already have version 7.0 its definitely worth the upgrade to 7.1.1 since its free to upgrade. There's a definite noticeable increase in speed and everything generally ran much more smoothly too. I was able to comfortably run 2 VM's simultaneously in unity mode over the host OS (although it was acceptably ever so slightly laggy given the base specifications of the machine) even though my system was only equipped with a base P8400 core2duo. VM boot times significantly decreased along wit...
