+Thiago D'Souza I've never listened to Riff Raff lol. I know who he is that's it. No interest in his music

I would recommend getting Platinum Notes if you can. I use it to make all my music files the same volume level. it brings down the gains usually, adds a tiny bit of expansion to the file to add some dynamics back in from over compression. Make sure to turn OFF "add warmth" and "correct pitch" options (not sure why these are on by default they are awful)

I only suggest this, because as someone who does sound engineering in a club for DJs, the number one thing I can say DJs are not paying attention to is the difference in volume between tracks. sometimes just going by the VU meters isn't enough as some tracks are way more compressed than others. So as a Sound Engineer I'm pulling my hair out having to constantly adjust the incoming gain for some DJs, when if everyone just used Platinum Notes they'd never have to adjust the gains on each channel ever except at the start of their set

that's super interesting about Quartz Composer. as a current VJ it saddens me that it seems like Quartz support is being phased out with latest versions of OSX

would like to see Ean explain why you leave no headroom on the mixer what so ever

really looking forward to how you do lights & visuals for hip hop. It's something I struggle with coming from the EDM world

you also do not need to use the On/Off midi button on the DJM900. it sends MIDI Clock data by default. The On/Off is only for mapping buttons, knobs & faders

+D-Squared I know this because I've tested it by using the MIDI port on the back of the DJM900 to a MIDI to USB cable to my macbook to sync my visual software bpm to the djm900. it sends the bpm automatically without me having to walk up to the mixer every night & pressing the on/off button
