DAW overkill Precision & Lenovo Portable workstation i7 Refreshes (...cue mad with power laughter)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Monday, September 20, 2010, In : DJ stuff 

It might be worth keeping in mind that there's nothing else on the market like the out of Stockholm post concept and now available to market Pacemaker as a device to compete with it.
 
But then again a Laptop and pro digital all in one mixer solution would better be compared to other similar hardware solutions as a more appropriate means of comparison in terms of a professional full sized solutions beyond a two turntable metaphor and not the Pacemaker. The reasoning being that they allow you to...

Reality for many people (spinning in the dark)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Sunday, September 19, 2010, In : culture 



It's weird how the most random of discussions can send your head on a major tangent to cause you to majorly pause for thought to then finally bring to the surface what was bothering you. Then again what was the probability that we now as human beings would have arrived where we are today as sentient complex thinking creatures drowned in thought left to deal with a bunch of what if's and if only's. We live in world where even the most seeming selfless act that felt good at the time can leave u...

Vinyl Turntables vs Pacemaker continued (How do you get power to any other kind of device that uses batteries?)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Tuesday, September 14, 2010, In : DJ stuff 

 

I thought that it would have gone without needing to be said, but as with many other devices capable of running on batteries its still perfectly possible to use the device in conjunction with its mains adaptor that comes supplied with it plugged into the device and a mains outlet for a constant power supply. Meaning you could go for as long as you liked or was capable of with a live mains outlet present to use. Not to mention that its actual electrical power consumption would be significan...

The problem with child cruelty and sexual abuse (a different type of contextual and very real truth)

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Monday, September 13, 2010, In : culture 

Today I was shown a video that had apparently been submitted as evidence of a two year child being beaten by an adult carer. It depicted the child being trampled on whilst being generally beaten and kicked around. I don't think I could put down in words what it actually looked like as the kid zipped across the viewable screen as it was booted. From what I was told the carer wasn't in fact the parent (it obviously would have been far worse if it was one of the parents). However if it wasn't fo...

Beyond two turntables & wireless iPad Ableton Control

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Monday, September 13, 2010, In : DJ stuff 


Ok so after that little high resolution eye opener about why its time to move on in terms of the two turntable metaphor thing for most folk that aren't really looking to be scratch turntable technicians and just want to be able to beat match tracks whilst mixing seamlessly and progressively, I still have to admit that I still generally prefer something a little more substantial that allows me to do much more for my main rig. But it looks like someone else already informed you in advance with ...

The contextual truth behind Vinyl turntables vs. the Pacemaker for the kid wanting to party and a piece of the DJ/club culture thing?

Posted by Eksovichea Hak on Monday, September 13, 2010, In : DJ stuff 



The DJ's 2 turntable metaphor

I've covered this in a similar vain before however here it is with a little more context. I remember hearing stories of impromptu mass illegal raves and crazy house parties in my youth all in the name of keeping the party vibe and the music that went along with it. The music they played was mainly electronica, sample based and used a progressive style of mixing and blending using only two vinyl record turntables, a mixer and lots of heavy to carry 12" vinyl record...
