The Linux DJ (Live Mix!)
Last time, it was all talk and no spin :(
This time its all spin spin spin >:)
Over the last 50 years DJing and its music has evolved from simple
records to full blown PC-based setups. Join us Monday November 24, as
we discuss a wide variety of topics that encompass what every DJ knows,
and what every Linux based DJ should know. Sunny will demonstrate the
tools of the trade that are used by simple wedding DJs to global DJs
like Armin van Buuren.
Part 1: The fundamentals of DJing
Together we shall explore many concepts that are natural to DJs, and
totally foreign to non-DJs. Basic skills include: hardware setup,
audience reading, music theory, track selection, music media formats, DJ
mixer usage, cutting, mild-scratching, the various transitions, and beat
mixing. Don't worry, we know this is much to soak in. Everything shall
be described with actual demonstrations in the next few parts.
Part 2: The Linux PC only setup
DJing no longer needs expensive hardware setups, and can be done
entirely via software. This is the simplest form of digital DJing, and
yet one that lends itself to much creativity by the DJ in the booth.
Part 3: Digital vinyl emulation under Linux
(turntables, mixers ... the whole 9 yards!)
It sounds crazy, but it is entirely possible to use "old school" tech
like records and turntables with "new school" formats like MP3 and
OGG-Vorbis. This combination of new and old is brilliant for it lets DJs
use the hardware and techniques developed over decades while still
spinning with the latest and greatest music out there. The turntablism
lives on under Linux!
Part 4: Digital DJing hardware and Linux
For many turntables are nothing more than a relic of the past. Today
there exists hardware made specifically for DJing via your Linux PC,
while having billions of knobs, faders, and other "thingies" DJs have
become accustomed to. Amazingly, this hardware works under Linux and
takes digital DJing to a whole new level!
Part 5: Live Mix!
All talk and no play is well .... boring! Together we shall spin a set
with a wide variety of music using the greatest operating system there
ever was: Linux!
