i used to use it, before i stopped djing that is!Is there a good manual for this program, or can someone teach me how do do anything other than make an absolute ungodly fucking racket with it, please?
it's just a totally different way to deal with tunes to analogue djing and the only encounters i've had with mp3 djing have been with serato and final scratch so much more easy to understand, but i'll get used to it. i bought a real simple beginners' guide from amazon and that makes it look pretty straightforward, so i'm hoping to get to grips sooner or later. i think the only way to learn is by tinkering with it, but i could probably use a proper tutorial from someone experienced with it. am a bit of a spazz when it comes to sussing out new tech, once i get used to it, i'm normally ok.hey dave, email me privately, would be glad to help with any questions no matter how basic.
i also use acid, but its horses for courses - i like the more sequencer based model that acid uses, if i want to construct something at my leisure. i wouldn't use it for an off-the-cuff performance.I prefer Soundforge Acid, much more straightforward.
Doesn't Final Scratch run Traktor? If you're looking to use vinyl as well as a laptop, Final Scratch or whatever that Rane/Serrato equivalent is seems to be tailor made.i'm looking mainly for something that will do good, clean blends and that can be used in a club context alongside trad vinyl mixing. i know i want to use traktor, it's just getting proficient with it that's the sticking point. i'll get there tho.
Jackson said:Jackson is DJ software that breaks with the past. It does not emulate the traditional DJ setup but truly unlocks the power of your computer. It is the first dedicated software package that offers sequencer-style mixing to the digital DJ.
Mixing tracks in Jackson is a 2-step process. Before you can play a track, you must rhytmically analyze it. Our BeatMapper tool makes this an easy and instructive process. Once you've analyzed a track, which you have to do only once, you can mix and manipulate the track in all freedom.
Our approach works with all styles of music. Whether the tempo is fixed or not, your beat-matching will be perfect, your loops will be smooth and your effects in sync.
