5 Reasons Why All DJs Should Learn To Beatmatch By Ear

I feel lucky to have been a DJ way before digital. I can happily whip a tune out of a box, throw it on a turntable, mix it in without using headphones, and (apart from the first beat or two), get it beatmatched straight away. The thing is, I’m really nothing special – all DJs who’ve ever DJed professionally with vinyl can do this. To DJs like me, it’s like riding a bike; if you do it often enough, you’ll never forget. But do you still need the skill if you’re a digital DJ?

Some people say “no”. Not when software can beatmatch music for you, and algorithms can show you your music in so many different ways. (I love Serato ITCH, for instance, and its three waveforms, all of which are great fun for visual DJing, or waveriding.)

But many still say “yes”. One of the most frequent things I hear from young digital DJs is “I want to learn to do it properly”. and I think they’re right. Here are some of the reasons why: Continue reading

Android gets USB Audio

Google Android to support class-compliant USB audio interfaces

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it comes to audio performance, Android mobile devices have been a few steps behind their Apple counterparts. Android’s audio engine wasn’t initially optimised and latency figures were markedly higher than for iOS. Certain companies like Sonoma Wire Works have written software or worked around the limitations of the OS so you can now do audio based things like play synths, use DJ tools etc. without crippling latency. That’s the first hurdle cleared. The second, and more vital limitation with Android, especially for recording, was its inability to play nicely with third-party audio interfaces, which you’d need to get higher quality audio in and out of the device.
