                        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
 was: Linux!
