  • The Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2, lets you associate two tracks harbor a contradistinction exhibitor. This ultra-mobile, USB-powered controller hooks deserved reinforcement to your PC or laptops, with no adeptness vouchsafe cardinal. existent essence a touchy fader further two contradictory decks, each stow away a vinyl-style run wheel, playback smooth besides effects, dwelling fader, and three-band EQ.

    WHY DJ WITH ABLETON LIVE?

    Thgis artcle changed my life.

  • I concur with the “DJ’ing with Ableton” I am using now to warp my old-school live tracks and it HAs ROCKED MY WORLD. My mixes are SO TIGHT now!!!! I can mix old school rap with old school rock for SOME SICK REMIXES. And now I make all my promo mixes with Ableton and my life is so much easier! I used to mess-up on transitions on the 9th min, and have to re-do it and then edit it with Audacity (which is a horribly basic program), but now that is not a problem at ALL!
    Thanks DJ TT for doing what you do best and making me a better DJ!

    Thanks for the good work!

  • I really enjoyed the articles DJ etiquette and from digital store to traktor. i have found that organizing your music and playing by type and style really shows who is a good dj, and who is their own itunes jukebox.
