First and foremost I just wanted to shout out www.djworx.com for the supply of pictures (make sure you go check their website for all your up to date news on everything DJ related). Now if you didn’t know, BPM is an annual event held over in Birmingham, UK, that showcases a lot of the newest technology that comes into the world of music. A lot of the focus of this blog entry will be mainly about the DJ side, although the production side is something that I would like to dive into, I didn’t want to lose any chain of thought for this post. So let’s get into it shall we?
We see here a DJ using the Pioneer SZ, originally set up for Serato DJ, judging from the picture it seems like Virtual DJ is in the mix (no pun intended) to take over some hardware originally made for a certain software, which is what we see here if you look closed at the screen.
This below looks like a rotary device, unsure of its purpose if its a mixing board or if its an audiophiles dream mixing control.
Ah this beautiful piece of equipment is the Pioneer DJM-S9-G, G stands for Gold, if that wasn’t obvious enough. This is definitely on my wishlist right now, so if you have a spare $1700 lying around, feel free to pick me up one, it would be greatly appreciated.
Same mixer but black.
Here below we have a Roland midi keyboard controller. Not sure of the pricing, or features, but that sleek black look on it is eye appealing. Kinda want.
Here’s visual of a Macbook running the brand new Pioneer DVS version of Rekordbox, definitely looking forward to seeing this in its full action and glory.
Nice to see novation getting into the midi keyboard game.
Of course Native Instruments had to showcase their stems files and controllers for it. (excited to see the usage of this tool)
Rotary dials probably from the same mixer from above
