Native Instruments Machine Studio

This morning I found an e-mail from Native Instruments announcing the new Machine Studio and hardware controller.

Pioneer CDJ-2000

I love to use Ableton Live for loops and acapella snippets, all synced into a live set. With MIDI sync you can use the software with most DJ software like Traktor.

Rekordbox 2.0.0 A lot of people are frustrated by the fact that the development of Rekordbox is going slow. Features request are on very low priority and bugs take a long time to get fixed. On top of that Pioneer is very reserved in handing out information giving the impression that they don’t have major plans for Rekordbox.
