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
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
