More DJing goodness coming your way

August 10, 2010

Yesterday I showed you the future of the DJ mixpult here and today we are getting blown away by this multitouch-enabled rig by a guy called Gregory Kaufman.

It employs a gesture-based interface that lets you spin the virtual turntables and use a variety of taps and finger swipes to replicate the main functions of a regular DJ deck.

It is even big enough so 2 DJs can play at the same time.

check out the video

just awesome – @maniac13


The coolest DJ board in the world!

August 9, 2010

I have a few mates that are DJing and I tell you right now, they would love one of these little screens.

A clear sheet of glass that beams out video from your computer and accepts touch inputs in return, the Token concept has been designed by a guy called Rodrigo from Chile. We know it uses a rear projector for its video, Emulator for Traktor Pro as the DJ software, but not much else.

But let the video talk for itself.

simply awesome!

Youtube becomes your easy to use VJ

February 11, 2010

We all have used youtube to watch music videos and I know a few people that sit at their desks all day and have youtube playing in the background as their own personal jukebox.

Since January (I know I am a bit late here, but I was really busy) this has become a hell of a lot easier with youtube disco.

And I have to say that even though it is quite simple and not to fancy on the eye, it is one of the fastest and most accurate ways to find your music (videos) and related artists. It also gives you a little insight into the artist and you can add videos individually or just add them all.

Then all you have to do is mix it all up manually or press the shuffle button 🙂

One thing I found very interesting is that the videos shown are not the official ones, but created by fans.

The only other site I have seen that would rival this is the Channel V site here. you can browse the whole site and never lose the music video you are watching.

Go ahead and try them both.
