Break the silence

Written by DJ House Container. Posted in About Me

It has been quiet for a few weeks while I’ve been busy with all kinds of stuff. I’ve worked hard on the migration of my server to Windows 2008 that I use for my music workflow and lots of other stuff. I’m playing around with my new set of Pioneer CDJ-2000 players which you can expect to hear more about soon, as well as the accompanying Rekordbox software.

So stay tuned for site updates…

Website Performance Boost

Since the new template, the website performance had increased already a little bit. However, the server performance was still poor and slowing the website down. Especially when it comes to the generation of the web pages, since actual download speed has always been good with speeds of 5 MB/s. But that has changed and the website performance has had a boost.

Ableton Live MIDI Sync

In this tutorial I will describe how to make the Perfect MIDI Sync between two Ableton Live computers. I will use two Windows XP systems, but it is also possible to do this between a Windows XP and Mac OS X system. For more background information regarding MIDI Sync options and MIDI Time Code you can read my previous blog posting about this. And best of all, the MIDI Sync will be free.
