Cool Kick Starter project: The Motion Synth
This morning I found an e-mail from Native Instruments announcing the new Machine Studio and hardware controller. I knew that Machine was transforming into more than just a groove box, and already had a lot of DAW features. What I did not now, or just overlooked on the big internet, was that they would come with this awesome hardware controller that looks to me of being spot on for the electronic music producer.
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. Traktor got all kinds of new features over the last two years that cover a lot of the functionality from Ableton Live, so that sync has become less important and Serato has the Bridge. But like a lot of other DJs out there I prefer to use the Pioneer CDJ-2000 system. And that one doesn’t sync with Ableton Live…or does it?
Today I got a message from a colleague about printing your own records with a 3D Printer. The idea comes from Amanda and is really cool. Using today’s digital technology to create something from the analog era.
I would like to wish everyone all my fellow DJs and party people a great 2013!
