The Reloop RP-7000: More Than a Serviceable Replacement for the Technics 1200

We haven’t been able to find a truly suitable replacement for the Technics 1200. More brands might be introducing turntables in an attempt to fill the void, but most products come with bells and whistles, from USB ports to MIDI compatibility. We’ve yet to find something that sticks with the [...]

When we attended the Winter Music Conference two years ago, we spoke with Pioneer, who promised something completely new and game changing. Not long after, the brand introduced its DDJ-SX model, but from that point, other gear has, frankly, been on par or eclipsed it. Over the past year, that’s [...]

PreSonus Does a Successful Overhaul with Studio One 3 – Review

After its debut, Studio One started to stand out for its strong effects, straightforward interface and usage, and easy audio and MIDI editing. Of course, as anyone will find with a DAW, Studio One had its weaknesses – mainly, a dearth of virtual instruments – and it seems that PreSonus [...]

Serato Remote: All the Features You Know in Mobile Form

Apps specifically for DJing with an iPad have already been around for a few years. Algoriddim immediately comes to mind.
