Nuamrk NS7 II 2 review imixmag
(photo only shows the left deck of the NS7 II)

Those who use the Numark NS7 would never lower themselves to using NS6, reason being, motorized jog wheels. Those in NS7 nation feared the thought that Numark would abandon the motorized platters over the touch sensitive ones found on the NS6. But when Numark released the NS7 II, the sounds of relief and exaltation by the vast NS7 nation was heard throughout the world.

pioneer DJ CDJ 2000 nexus platinum review imixmag
So Pioneer DJ teases us before the NAMM show and when they finally unveil the product it’s just some already released product with a new paint job. Yes, of course they look beautiful. But is a paint job enough to make you want to go out and purchase a product which was already available?

These shiny babies are a limited edition and will only be available to those with enough shiny coin to afford the heavy price tag.

I’m quite curious to how many economically endowed DJs will be ready to fork it over, but if you got the need for shine and the mula to spare, then Pioneer DJ has a paint job for you

2011 DJ Controller of the year Pioneer DDJ ERGO V imixmag

Picking out the best DJ Controller of 2011 wasn’t easy. It came down to which DJ Controller allowed one to be the most creative and had the best hardware layout for easy functionality. At the end the Pioneer DDJ-ERGO-V came out ahead of the pack. Its revolutionary design and compact size set a new high standard for DJ Controllers. Even though it did win we have to warn that the Ergo is probably a firmware update away of being totally stable. But the foundation of this unit and Pioneer DJ’s reputation of excellence make this a DJ Controller to behold.

DJ EXPO 2011 best DJ imixmag

You’ve seen it before, there’s a contest, and one group or person clearly is the best performer. But at the end of it all the winner is someone who clearly wasn’t deserving. Our choice of BEST EXHIBIT ROOM DJ leaves the usual politics and the bullshit out the door and only comes down to raw skill which is exactly what everyone witnessed from DJ CHOPPS.

Serato DJ 1.6 Rane firmware update SL3

If you have the Rane Sixty-Two you may want to hold on to upgrading its firmware. Once you update the firmware on the Rane Sixty-Two it will no longer be backwards compatible with Serato Scratch Live. Yes, a scary proposition.

Here's the page link for the information regarding the firmware update with these devices.

DJ Controller with pads best imixmag

A pad pad here and a pad pad there, here a pad there a pad everywhere a pad pad. Yes, 2013 is definitely the year of pads on DJ Controllers. So much is the case that if you look at a new DJ Controller release which doesn’t have pads the one word which comes to mind is, OLD. Numark has gone as far as putting pads on their whole new DJ Controller line. Yes my friends, it’s a pademic. Be prepared for the weird looks when you pull out your old DJ Controller without pads and people stare you down as if you just lip sang at the Presidential inauguration. So do yourself a favor and get your pad on before the new trend mongers rip you apart.

sync function DJ imixmag

Are you really a DJ if you use the SYNC button to mix your music? This question always brings on a heated debate between those who do and those who don’t. And like all discussions the answer usually lands somewhere in the middle, which is exactly where this one lands, dead smack in the middle. So instead of looking at the negatives of both arguments, let’s focus on the positives and see how they can enhance your DJing.

Using SYNC
The Sync feature is function within your DJ software which automatically beat matches one deck to others and can be used to increase the creativity of your mixes. This is especially true of four track DJ controllers where you can have a mix going, hit the SYNC button and throw in a loop or another mix and keep building on. You can also have a mix already going, put it in SYNC and concentrate on the exiting the mix in a dramatic fashion with either an echo, delay, roll out loop, or a combination of some or all the functions available in your software and hardware arsenal.

In essence syncing frees you to use all the features available at your disposal and will definitely add more dynamics to your DJ set.

By ear
If you can dance or carry a rhythm, you can mix by ear and learning how to do so isn’t that difficult. What’s great about being able to do it by ear is how you’ll have the skill to listen to a song and without hesitation know what songs go with it. This is a very important component to DJing and is almost necessary in advancing to the remix and production world. So having the ear to mix allows your mind to come up with scenarios in your set which aren’t restricted to selecting tracks which you choose based on the BPM numbers your DJ software formulates.

Use it all to become a better you
Using the SYNC and other available features doesn’t make you less of a DJ, they enhance the possibility of making you more. They allow you to be a composer of music with all the technological advancement and gives you the tools and creative freedom to redefine what a modern DJ is and the endless possibilities of what a future DJ can be.

pioneer ddj ergo review 2013

The Ergo has been out for a while however there have been many updates and changes to the DJ Software which supports it, in some instances drastic. So we have updated our review in our dedicated Pioneer DDJ ERGO page.

serato Dj free software 2012 imixmag

What are the new features, what will it cost, and when will it be available for your DJ Controller. We sum it up on our dedicated Serato DJ page.

serato Dj New software 2012 november imixmag

Itch is dead. Serato DJ will be Serato’s new professional software for controllers. Besides bug fixes Serato itch will end with version 2.2.2.

Serato DJ will be a whopping $199 to upgrade from DJ Intro. Serato DJ Intro is free and is available for low priced entry level DJ Controllers such as the Pioneer DJ ERGO and the Numark N4, both which go for $499. Add the upgrade of $199 and you’re looking at a price of $698. Luckily these DJ Controllers have other options besides this. At this upgrade price you’re better off purchasing a more expensive controller which includes full blown DJ software, or opting for Traktor Pro 2 ($89) or Virtual DJ (starting at $49).

If you have an itch based DJ Controller like the Numark NS6 and NS7, you’ll get a free uprade to Serato DJ which will also include a free version of Serato Video-nice.

So what do we think?
Yes we agree, the upgrade from Serato DJ Intro to Serato DJ is overpriced. We can’t imagine many entry level DJs opting to pay $199 for an upgrade when they can get Traktor Pro 2 for only $89. Unless Serato can convince these DJs that Serato DJ is way better than Traktor ($110 better to be exact) this price will surely mean the death of Serato DJ Intro based controllers. Our prediction, you’ll definitely see an upgrade price drop within 6 month to a year.

If you have the NS6, NS7 or any other itch based DJ controller, the move to Serato DJ is an easy decision but you can say goodbye to free major updates. Yes, minor updates and bug fixes will be free however they will probably charge for major updates.

Name team comes up blank.
Couldn’t Serato come up with a better name than Serato DJ? It’s just so freaking plain. Since it’s the next level of itch couldn’t they call it Serato Scar or Serato Gash?

What’s in a name anyway? The bottom line is Serato DJ needs to offer more bang for the buck than itch. Soon we shall hear what the all new effects offer. Soon we will see the new midi mapping options available. And soon we shall taste either the sweet path to the next level of Serato or the sour taste of paying for a repackaged Serato itch.

If Batman were a DJ he would use this.
Pioneer DDJ-SX review video imixmag
Pioneer DJ will be the first to release a Controller designed specifically for Serato DJ. The Pioneer DDJ-SX will coincide with the release of Serato DJ in November. The rumored price is $1,199 U.S. dollars and given all the features it offers Pioneer seems to be going after the market it lost to the Numark NS6 and NS7. It even has the same metallic look of the NS6. Never thought Pioneer DJ would emulate a Numark design; my how things have changed. Regardless, the DDJ-SX is the most impressive looking feature packed DJ controller released by Pioneer DJ. Pioneer doesn’t need to produce those fake DJ videos to promote this unit, this bad boy is feature packed and will sell itself.
