DJ and Producer Myagi stopped by our office the other week, and when we saw that he was using a unique modular setup with Ableton, we couldn’t resist getting him to show us the different elements that make up his DJ rig. He’s also releasing an album in a format that allows users to remix it on Meta.DJ, an iPad DJ app that was released last year.
Some of the cool stuff that Myagi uses:
- Ill Gates’s DJ template for Ableton Live – if you’re looking for a great template for Live, Ill Gates has been developing his for the past few years – it’s one of the best we’ve found out there. The template comes with premapped versions for the M-Audio Trigger Finger, Akai’s MPD32/MPD24/APC40, and the iPad.
- We covered Meta.DJ when it was first released late last year, but they’ve added quite a few new features since the initial release (some of it based directly on the feedback they received here on DJTT!).
- The Korg Monotron series are small synths that can fit pretty well into any live or production setup, much in the same way that the Kaossilators can be used.
