Dj Color TV – Live mix from Solas – June 2014

This is a mix from a friday night in June 2014, recorded at Solas NYC. DJ Color TV had the place jumping all night long. This mix is just 1 hour snippet from the full night. Listen to it, like it, and share it with everyone!!!!

 

Equipment used for this mix: 2 Technics 1200's and a Rane 62 mixer. Serato is the DVS and the program that recorded the mix. This is about 1 hour from a 6 hour set, from about 11:45pm to 12:45am. The place was hype all 6 hours. And of course the intro and outro were recorded after the fact. Click Through for a full track listing.

The Jetpack DJ Bag review by DJ Color TV

Every DJ needs a good bag. The problem is they are expensive and its hard to tell if you are buying what you need until you bring it home and pack it up. If its too tight, then thats no good, if its too big, same problem. Like Goldilocks, it needs to be just right. I found one that fits my needs, and more importantly, all my equipment. I have fit a lot in the Jetpack bag including a Rane 57, and it all fits quite comfortably. But don't get me wrong, if you have less stuff, the bag can be collapsed down and be smaller, so thats good. Its the Jetpack DJ Bag. Checkout the video so see the rest of my take on this bag. Also there are many pics of this bag and more info, like where to buy it, after the jump:

Serato + iTunes tip of the week. Consolidate your iTunes Libraries from 2 (or more) computers to 1 Portable iTunes Playlist.

If you are like most DJs, you manage your music through iTunes, then import the new music into your DJ program of choice, in this case Serato. But what if you use two computers? Usually you would have to use only one for your file management. Maybe you produce music on one computer (say an iMac/Tower) and use your laptop to DJ with. Or maybe you have a computer at work that you wish you could manage your music in some downtime. Either way, I bet you wish you could use one iTunes Library, right? Well you can, and here is how to do it, after the jump...

Projection Mapping for Serato

Ever want to get away from the computer but still use Serato? This projection concept allows for that, sorta. Check out the video, its a pretty interesting concept. Your tracks or waveforms get projected right on the records and the playlists are infront of you. I have no idea how they did this. And I dont really see a real life application for this, unless you were doing a special artsy show. But its cool nonetheless. Video is after the jump:

Serato Video SL, now on sale! (video examples)

Not the biggest of news, but it is noteworthy. If you have ever  wanted to expand your mixing abilities to video, this is a great chance. Right now, Video SL, the plugin for Serato Scratch Live that allows you to play  video files, is on sale for $99! That is half off the normal price of $199. Buy it from Serato. It is a great plugin and even if you don't use videos while you are mixing, it allows you to use MP4s (or other video files) like MP3s. Otherwise they wont even show up in your music library (however that might have been an old problem, but they wont play without the plugin). If you are on the fence, get off the fence and buy yourself a gift! Click through for some videos of some great usus of Video SL.

How to set up Kontrol X1 for Serato

If you have been DJing in the last few years, then you know that controllers are becoming widely used. Personally, I use turntables with Dicers. But I just picked up a Traktor Kontrol X1 to expand my capabilities, mainly to control effects and loops. After testing some other controllers that are similar, I settled on this one, and its way better than some of the other controllers out there. However, it was NOT easy to set up. Watch the video below for a run-through and instructions, and click through for download links and more thoughts on this controller.

Serato’s new SL 4 box, lets take a look (with video)

First of all, for those of you that recently bought an SL 3 box, im sorry. Yes its superior to the previous box, but this new SL 4 is much better. The main difference is the fact that it now has 2 USB 2.0 ports for seamless switchovers or simultaneous DJing (like in the Rand 68 mixer). The SL 4 supports 96 kHz sample rate and high quality 24-bit digital audio processing. You may ask yourself, what does that mean? Well, it means its going to sound great! The MSRP is $899, but I am guessing you will be able to find it for cheaper when it hits the stores in April. Continue reading for the official statement from Serato and the video from NAMM 2011.

the DMC DJ Competition is Going Digital! Its Official, for real… (update)

Apparently, at the DMC is making some changes. This was announced at the end of the World DMC Competition on October 18th, 2010. Tony Prince, the founder of the DMC, was reported to announce this news on stage after announcing the new heavy sponsorship from Rane and Serato. Personally, I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing. Its good that the competition is getting with the times, but on the other hand it could  destroy the competition altogether. Click through for the full report with quotes from Tony Price and Serato, also for a list of pros and cons of this move.
