Traktor Audio Cube Control -To Be or Not to Be?

Traktor Audio Cube Control -To Be or Not to Be?

I was passed this video link today and thought I would share this with all you Traktor users. Whilst this looks cool and makes great use of these AudioCubes, do you think these could actually be used out there in a live performance professionally?

I feel it’s possible but being a DJ myself we all know that buttons and knobs are more of a preference. Is it time for a change?
In this video the DJ Lamebot is using two cubes to control 8 paramaters mapped up in Traktor Pro. What do you think? – leave us a comment or two…

Play your cue points mashing and reworking in key just like you would on a keyboard – within reason. Each White key pitches the key up or down in the correct increments from the middle ‘C’.

Beatgrids for Traktor

Beatgrids for Traktor

DJ’s nowadays are looking to fulfil their creative potential using up to 4 decks together, all synchronised allowing room for live remixing, cutting, chopping and reworking using cue points, loops, acapellas and the new Remix Decks in Traktor 2.5.

This creative opportunity would not be possible unless you ‘beatgrid‘ your tracks ready for Traktor beforehand. This eliminates the need for beatmatching, freeing up your hands and skills to work on other more creative aspects during your performance – with Traktor synchronising your tracks enables endless possibilities for live remixing.

With at least 14 years DJ experience and as a dedicated and Traktor professional of over 4 years, plus another 3 years in commercial sales & support of DJ software & technology – I can provide a valuable and professional service for all digital DJ’s looking to beatgrid their collection.

Simply get in touch to enquire with the amount of tracks required.

More information:
