Tablebeats V3 — because you can never have enough beats

While DJWORX isn’t a scratch site, I do still find myself in environments inhabited by many scratch heads, in particular those of a portablist persuasion. And it’s fair to say that without exception, where there is a gathering of portablists, at least one of them (probably all with an iPhone in reality) will be rocking a copy of Daniel Hulth’s ubiquitous and free TableBeats app. This has now been bumped to V3 , and...

While concurrently developing Traktor DJ 2, Native Instruments is pushing forward with the development of their current flagship Traktor Pro 3 with a handful of long awaited features via the release of Traktor Pro 3.1. And by long awaited I mean that the community has been screaming for some of them for literally years.Here’s the nicely compact list of updates:PARALLEL WAVEFORMSTRAKTOR 3.1 sees the introduction of parallel waveforms – a feature that’s long been...

Roomy DJ makes your ugly setup living room friendly

I remember the halcyon days of living with my parents with just my DJ gear and a desire to make people dance. It was also a chance for me to flex my fledgling carpentry skills and design a workstation of sorts to sit neatly in the corner of my bedroom, designed with the express intention of providing a place for everything and a workflow to suit my music making aspirations. The saw operator at...

BOOK REVIEW: Ortofon’s “A Century of Accuracy in Sound”

LINK: Orfoton | PRICE: 49 eurosTwo things are established:I love DJ gearI love booksSo when these two things come together in one place, it’s guaranteed to have my attention. And just before Christmas, this beauty landed in the Worxlab and made me very happy indeed.

INDUSTRY: New blood and musical chairs at inMusic

I’m sitting in front of my laptop at the kitchen table. I’ve had to rearrange my day to allow my long standing plumber into chez Settle to sort out the central heating. But I still have to do a few things, and start work on that other thing, let alone that stack of long standing things and stuff that really needs my attention for far too long. If I were me, I’d hire another...

That Thud Rumble mixer with the screen gets a name — The Invader

So, lets say I pitch you a product. It costs $2,500, is hand made in the USA using pretty pricey parts (compared to price of sale), and you are only planning on making 32 for the initial run. I tell you that it looks like a product that people are familiar with, but it isn’t actually that thing. Oh, and, while everyone involved has been involved in the creation and sale of product, none...

So yea, that Technics SL1200mk7… oh boy

I remember NAMM 2005 very well. I had reviewed the SL-DZ1200, and gave it a less than glowing recommendation. At the time, Skratchworx was about the only game in town, so getting the cold shoulder and subsequent freeze-out from the brand over that review was kind of a big deal.Even though the DJ media world has gotten larger, writing this I’m getting flashbacks. When the new DJ-oriented 1200 was announced, I was excited. While...

NAMM 2019: So about that new version of Traktor…

After some time lost in the DJ software ether, Native Instruments bounced back into the DJ consciousness with somewhat vague news that there would be a spanking new from the ground up version of Traktor. Confusion reigned for a while around these parts as I had no real idea of what that really meant for the old Traktor. But further clarity has arrived in my inbox today with the news that the iOS Traktor...

NAMM 2019: The story of the 7PS… so far

We’ve been following the progress of the 7 Portable Scratcher (henceforth known as 7PS) for a few years. We’ve posted a number of stories along the way, but now it’s time for an update, one that will answer many questions for people, and give you some idea of what’s happening next.Firstly, full disclosure… well more like clarification really. I’ve been helping with certain aspects of the development of the 7PS. DJWORX is perfectly...

NAMM SPY SHOTS: Gemini’s new standalone thingy

NAMM 2019 starts tomorrow, which makes today the day that holy hell breaks loose and manufacturers unwrap their selected shiny ready for the gathered masses to poke, paw, and post up on Instagram to get the “first” badge of honour. And despite being 5295.71 miles away (door to door), we’ve still got a network of spies casually sauntering the floor, taking a turn around this stand and that stand, looking for stuff that we...
