It’s easy to overlook some of the older advanced methods of DJ technology and performance when we’re constantly swimming in a world of new controllers and software for digital DJs. One such DJ performance style with its own following is the DJ isolator – standalone EQs that shape and carve into the actual sound coming out of the speakers.
Last December, we wrote an article covering the basics of DJ isolators and highlighting the auteurs of that style. Derek, the author of that same article, shared this great video on twitter this afternoon featuring DJ Shorty from SBS Designs (an isolator design/manufacturing company) showing off his favorite isolator techniques – it’s a fascinating watch, and will come in handy if you’ve got a chance to practice with some isolators!
