  • Ready. Set. Go….

    Took a while, but I’ve got a set list worked out.
    Includes Emalkay, Magnetic Man, The Others and even some Delilah albeit dubstep mixes 😀
    Quite a few tunes from The Others, as I’m loving their sound atm.

    So here’s my initial track list:

    Flying into Tokyo – Magnetic Man
    Fun House – The Others
    Everybody Do The Super Skank – The Others
    Breathe – Delilah (Emalkay mix)
    Anthemic – Magnetic Man
    Inside My Love – Delilah (VIP mix)
    Metropolis – Magnetic Man
    Africa (VIP) – The Others
    Technophobe – The Others
    Fallout – The Others
    Light Up Ya Spliff – The Others
    Fabrication – Emalkay
    Feel It – The Others
    Getting Nowhere – Magnetic Man
    Go – The Others
    First Flight – The Others (VIP mix)
    Red planet – The Others
    Stargate – The Others
    Showdown/Polaris – The Others

    Still a little tweaking to do on the soundcard before I can record a set with split headphone monitoring, but think I got it sussed now.

    Numark Mixtrack Pro – click for a looksy

    Welcome to this week’s episode of
    What’s Jay into Now?

    I’ve suddenly got the bug to start mixing again! Yup, about 4 years since I even touched a mixer & pair of decks, but Digital DJ’ing is actually pretty mature and usable now, where it used to be AWFUL. Traktor 2.5 on our Macbook Pro is fun to use, reliable, actually matches BPM’s on dubstep & DnB tracks, and is almost usable with mouse/keyboards!

    However, of course I’m looking at external DJ style midi controllers, as Mouse n Keys really aren’t hands-on.
    Numark Omni and Mixtrack Pro are my front runners, selling around £40-100 on ebay. The Omni looks sexy & well built, but is a tad old & sluggish apparently. The Mixtrack Pro is up-to-date, well rated & sounds pretty solid, it’s also more expensive of these 2.

    Either way, won’t be getting anything for a while, but watch this space 😀

    However, in a mild attempt to cover my cravings I’ve been trying practically every Android DJ app on my SGS3, but nothing really works. Although DJ Studio 4 is best of the bunch; Can load 2 MP3’s, setup playlists, adjust pitch and play simultaneously, it suffers from chronic lag and can only sync to the nearest whole BPM, not “142.5” or whatever, so nothing is ever in time for long 🙁

    All in all not very successful, and that’s the best of all I’ve tried – the others really were dire !!
