PIONEER DJ TEAM UP WHIT JAZZY JEFF

Pioneer DJ have teamed up with turntablist Jazzy Jeff on a new controller for Serato. The DDJ-SB3 features a new Pad Scratch mode, emulating a series of scratch types that remain in sync with the bpm of the track. The scratch options go from basic to complex, mimicking some classic scratch techniques.

The idea is that users can listen to the scratches and try nd replicate them using the jog wheels on the SB3. Having been recently updated, Serato DJ Lite comes bundled with the unit, which costs £229.

 

Adam släpper två nya studiomonitorer

Med målet att leverera prisvärda men högpresterande studiomonitorer släpper Adam två nya närfältare för semiprofessionellt hemmabruk.

T-serien, som från och med nu är Adams nya instegsmodell, består av studiomonitorerna T5V och T7V, med ett frekvensomfång på 45 – 25 000 Hz respektive 39 – 25 000 Hz. Högtalarna är utrustade med den nya U-ART 1.9 tums diskanten, vilken i sin tur är baserad på flaggskeppet från S-serien. Med detta sagt utlovas låg distortion, höga frekvenser och ett lågt pris. Huruvida de står sig mot direkta konkurrenter som exempelvis Yamaha HS7 och KRK Rokit RP-6 G3 återstår dock att se.

 Adam T5V och T7V levereras med fem års garanti till priset av 1 700 kr för femmorna och 2 000 kr för sjuorna. Observera att priset gäller per styck. Läs mer på www.adam-audio.com

HUMBEATZ

HumBeatz förvandlar dina sångmelodier och rytmer till MIDI.

Ibland räcker smarttelefonens inbyggda röstmemo inte riktigt till för att fånga musikaliska idéer. AmpTrack Technologies tror sig ha hittat lösningen.

HumBeatz är en app till iOS and Android som låter dig nynna, vissla, eller beatboxa in en idé, för att sedan omvandla denna till valfritt midi-instrument. Välj mellan ”Hum mode” och ”Beat Mode” och använd sedan 4-kanals loopern för att sätta ihop ett enklare arrangemang, med reverb och delay om så önskas. Och mycket svårare än så verkar det faktiskt inte vara.

HumBeatz laddas ner från App Store eller Google Play till priset av 6.99 dollar. Läs mer på www.humbeatz.com

THE NEW CONCORDE GENERATION

In the mid-1980s, the original Concorde cartridges changed the landscape of vinyl DJing, and throughout the years Ortofon has continuously refined the Concorde brand by offering more than a dozen different models to the DJ market. During the past few years, Ortofon embarked on a mission to take the Concorde design back to ground zero, collaborating with some of the world’s top vinyl DJs to create a new series which would fulfill the needs of the modern DJ professional.

There are 5 cartridges in the series: MIX, DJ, CLUB, SCRATCH and DIGITAL – a clear product range for five applications and technological improvements for better performance.

  • All models benefit from a replaceable reinforced finger lift, which is easily replaced if broken.
  • The cartridge bodies have been broadened, to offer greater stability during performances.
  • Replacement styli offer a tactile feedback when seating, indicating a snug and secure fit, while a cut-out area in the front allows for far more accurate needle drops.
  • The Concorde MkII’s unique 2-seqment body design creates a fresh and attractive aesthetic.

The Concorde MIX offers a budget-friendly, yet high quality option capable of good all-round performance, while the Concorde DJ is considered the jack-of-all-trades, boasting accurate sound reproduction and excellent groove handling. The Concorde CLUB features a special Elliptical diamond and offers the best sound quality achievable for traditional vinyl playback and offers an outstanding platform for archival and sampling. The Concorde SCRATCH allows turntablist and scratching DJs to achieve new levels of performance with an unprecedented tracking ability and extra high output, and the specially-optimized Concorde DIGITAL offers both of these features with a technology designed to extend the life of timecode vinyl and minimize errors in decoding.

The new generation of Concorde tailored uniquely to the demands of modern turntable DJs.

RANE TWELVE + SEVENTY-TWO

Rane DJ® has unleashed the stunning new SEVENTY-TWO mixer and TWELVE controller – a Battle Ready salvo that hits the professional DJ market dead center.

Rane DJ (Rane), the established innovator in the DJ industry, noted for their standard-setting solutions coupled with unequalled reliability and customer service, today announced the introduction of a new family of important and exciting Battle Ready products for the professional DJ market. These new models are a dramatic and impressive statement strengthening Rane DJ’s position at the forefront of the DJ Stage.

The SEVENTY-TWO Battle Mixer

Recognizing an unfulfilled need in the market for a bulletproof tabletop battle mixer, Rane DJ focused its unmatched Seattle-based engineering capability on the problem and created a new model of unrivaled performance and innovation. With incredibly high build quality in terms of component selection and its all-steel construction, this mixer solidifies Rane DJ’s reputation as the premier mixer brand for turntablists.

The Rane SEVENTY-TWO has been designed in collaboration with DJs and their crews all over the world. This Battle Ready flagship offers the high standards of performance and construction that people rightly expect from Rane, along with ground-breaking technology.

With the RANE SEVENTY-TWO, dual DJs can battle it out with their own laptops simultaneously through the two USB computer connections. With a brand-new 4.3-inch color touch screen interface, the SEVENTY-TWO not only shows Serato DJ’s moving waveforms and their cue points, but also brings a much-needed interactive experience to FX workflows, with two internal FLEX FX engines and stacked Serato DJ Effects.

Importantly, the SEVENTY-TWO will be the first time that users will experience Rane’s brand-new Mag THREE Fader. Dramatically updating their patented, industry-changing Mag Fader design, the new Mag THREE Fader offers a unique touchless, tension-adjustable fader with perfect tactile feel and precision, combined with a long and reliable life. It makes for a DJ experience simply unavailable anywhere else.

Highlights of the SEVENTY-TWO:

  • (3) NEW MAG THREE tension adjustable faders for crossfader and channel faders with reverse, contour controls, and cut-in adjustment
  • 4.3″ Touchscreen for moving wave display, FX control, song selection and user customizations
  • Dual Flex FX engines, one for each channel
  • Chain-integrated Serato DJ Effect control plus one internal Flex Effect per channel
  • Dual USB connections for DJ handoffs
  • 16 Akai MPC-style performance pads w/RGB backlight, adjustable threshold and aftertouch, with independent mode controls per deck.
  • Two microphone inputs – combo Neutrik, on/off, tone, mic/line level switches
  • RCA Phono/CD and CD inputs for each deck
  • RCA session Inputs/outputs, balanced XLR, Main Out, balanced ¼”, Booth Out

  • Industry First – assignable USB controller inputs for Rane TWELVE Battle Controller

The TWELVE Battle Controller

Rane DJ presents the TWELVE Battle Controller, a simple, pure and powerful motorized DJ control system without needle skippage or tone arm hopping. The TWELVE has all the characteristics and simplicity of a ”traditional” direct-drive turntable but without the hassle of fragile needles and skipping tone arms. Keeping things consistent with a familiar turntable layout and size, the only clear differentiator is a precision, multi-function touch strip for track searching and setting or triggering hot cues in place of the tone arm.

The vinyl experience is fully customizable with your favorite slipmat. With an all-metal body like the SEVENTY-TWO, the TWELVE is built like a tank, but it has the agility of a sports car. It is truly Battle-Ready. With the TWELVE, the DJ can scratch and play with all the direct spontaneity and creativity of a turntablist, but with the precision, repeatability and durability of the best digitally-based solutions. The TWELVE is the very best of both. There is simply nothing else like it, anywhere.

Highlights of the TWELVE:

  • Full 12″ Vinyl with motorized platter to control playback
  • Traditional, familiar turntable layout, no need to learn something new
  • Strip Search with 8 hot cue triggers access
  • 5.0 kfcm High torque motor with Hi/Low torque adjust for more traditional setups
  • 4 decks of control so you can use one, two or more
  • Extreme precision—3600 ticks of platter resolution for seamless performance
  • MIDI interface via USB that can be connected to the SEVENTY-TWO or your computer
  • 33 1/3 and 45 rpm platter speeds
  • 8/16/50% pitch with precise dual resolution detented slider
  • Top Panel rotary and traditional Motor Off switch, allows traditional wind down effects
  • Serato DJ OSA READY

TACK TILL ALLA UTSTÄLLARE SAMT ALLA HÄRLIGA BESÖKARE

Då var tredje upplagan utav Scandinavian Music Expo över och vi arrangörer vill tacka alla utställare samt alla härliga besökare som gjorde mässan till en succé även i år. Vi vill även ge ett stort tack till Jakob Haq från HAQ ATTAQ som var där och filmade och lade ut detta sköna klipp om mässan på YouTube.

MOOG: SUBSEQUENT 37 CV

Today we are excited to announce the Subsequent 37 CV. This limited-edition redesign of the ultra-powerful Sub 37 Tribute Edition analog synthesizer is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide, with the first 125 units built live on-site at Moogfest 2017. Anchored by a pair of solid aluminum side pieces inset with North American hardwood and affixed to a rugged steel and aluminum enclosure, it features four assignable CV outputs and two assignable Gate outputs for interconnectivity with large-format and Eurorack modular systems, an upgraded keybed for improved playability, a high-powered headphone amplifier for live-monitoring, and a modified analog signal path.

“We are really excited to incorporate community feedback into the evolution of an instrument. Adding CV interconnectivity was the starting point, but we have also increased the headroom in the mixer and significantly extended the range of Multidrive, giving the Subsequent 37 CV expanded sonic capability and modular control.” – Cyril Lance, Moog Chief Engineer

The Subsequent 37 CV’s mixer now has double the headroom of the Sub 37 Tribute Edition. Taking advantage of the mixer’s newfound flexibility, the gain-staging of the Ladder filter has been reshaped to boost harmonic saturation and analog compression. Completing the sonic evolution is a re-tuned Multidrive circuit that extends well beyond the grit and growl of the original Sub 37.

Subsequent 37 CV production is limited to 2000 pieces worldwide. Each instrument is lovingly handcrafted by Moog employee-owners. The first 125 units are available for purchase exclusively through GuitarCenter.com, and on-site at the Moog Pop-Up Factory during Moogfest 2017, May 18-21.

MIXFADER

1_Whatis

Is the first connected object for DJs. It allows you to perfect all mixing techniques, in particular scratching, which requires a certain manual dexterity, difficult to reproduce on a tactile surface. Mixfader can be connected wirelessly to an application that computerizes your vinyl turntable and brings together all the essential elements for mixing your music. Mixfader allows you to make perfect transitions and to scratch like a pro.
