A new year, a brand new product review! Audio-Technica was kind enough to send me a set of their DJ headphones, the ATH-PRO700. I’ve been itching to try out a good set of headphones since the ones I’ve used to mix and listen with for the past 10 years, have begun disintegrating.
I’m a big fan of Native Instruments. I like their FM8 and Absynth instruments, and I have a fairly large Kontakt library. One of my next purchases will be Maschine, and I like Traktor Pro quite a bit.
Remember when I said that I’d learn how to use Ableton Live by doing a mash-up that I’d already done in Logic? Well this weekend I sat down with Ableton and warped some tracks. I liked how easy warping was to perform in Ableton (I haven’t yet installed Logic 9 to try the Flextime as a comparison).
Numark has announced the impending arrival of the MixTrack DJ MIDI controller. Having reviewed the Vestax Spin and using it quite a bit, I can’t help but see the similarities between them. Like the Spin, the MixTrack has a touch sensitive platter and like the Spin’s twin brother the Typhoon, the MixTrack ships with Traktor LE.
Okay, now why didn’t I think of this before? Following yesterday’s post on hacking an SM57 for easy drum miking, comes another slap-on-the-forehead easy hack. I’m sure you’ve come across a broken set of headphones that sounded fine, but something broke like the strap, or a deteriorating foam ear cup.
