Dutch Top 40 in 60 Minutes Mix

Written by DJ House Container. Posted in About Me

Fascinated by the Grandmixes and In The Mix shows from Ben Liebrand, as well as the Mixes from Martin Pieters it was just a matter of time for my own mix channel and concepts. After many years of live DJ-ing and use of Ableton Live in the studio and live, I’ve come up with a first concept for my Mix Channel at Mixcloud: The Dutch Top 40 mix in under 60 minutes.

Native Instruments Machine Studio

Native Instruments Machine Studio
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 know, 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.

Syncing CDJ-2000 and Ableton Live

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. 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?

3D Printed "Vinyl" Record

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.
