V-MODA 3D Printed Headphones [Video]

If you’ve been following this DJ blog for a while, then you would already know that my absolute favorite DJ headphones are the V-MODA M-100.  These headphones have great looks, impressive sound, excellent fit, and durability.  You also have the option to remove the shields on the outside of the earcups and design them via graphics and colors exactly as you wish.  V-MODA now takes this design concept a serious step forward by allowing these shields to be 3D printed with even more design options and on a huge selection of materials from steel to platinum.

Rane TTM57MKII Mixer Post-Fader FX [Video]

Beatmaking On Maschine Discussion [Video]

The recently reviewed Native Instruments Maschine Studio hardware provides best-in-class production control with two new hi-res color displays, a new edit section with a large jog wheel, and 16-multi-color backlit velocity-sensitive drum pads.  At last month’s Red Bull Music Academy Festival in New York, NI and RBMA teamed up to put together a special roundtable with hip-hop studio icons Just Blaze, 9th Wonder, Khrysis, and G.O.O.D. Music’s President Che Pope. It was a really interesting conversation about collaboration, hip-hop production and how to make songs with Maschine.
