In our next video for the weekly video series, I will share with you my favorite or personal best DJ headphones for under $100. DJ headphones need to be rugged and durable, while providing good isolation and high volume levels for accurate monitoring during a performance. The Urbanears Zinken check all of these boxes and much more.
Novation has always been bringing producers and live performers excellent controllers to apply their trade on and they've finally introduced a companion Soundcard and USB hub device to make it easy to connect all of that MIDI goodness to a hardware setup. The new Novation Audiohub 2x4 soundcard has a three-port USB hub, two inputs, and four outputs to connect all of the setup to a computer and other sound systems.
Earlier today I fired up the Stanton T.120 turntables and the Trusty Pioneer DJM-T1 Mixer for another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts August 2014. Back at it once again, I had to get my camera rolling to give you a quick freestyle mixing session with some of my favorite tracks of this latest release. Every month I complete a quick freestyle DJ session while choosing songs from my newest Monthly Mixtape series called "DJ Blaze - Blazing Cuts". Check out my quick freestyle video session and download/stream my latest August 2014 mixtape.
A brand new company called LyxPro has just released a cool set of headphones that are advertised as being great for DJ's and Sound professionals alike. The LyxPro HAS-20 headphones have large 50mm over-the-ear drivers, good passive isolation, and a folding/swivel design for easy transport and one-ear monitoring. We have a set of LyxPro HAS-20 headphones in the lab for the review treatment, but check out the unboxing video to see my first impressions.
Serato Flip is finally here with the new Serato DJ update. With Serato Flip, DJ's and producers will be able to save their hotcue, censors, edits, and track mashups so the creation can be recalled on the fly with a push of a single button. Users can save up to six Serato Flips per track and I had a blast using this new feature at the Atlantic City DJ Expo last month. Serato HQ shows us how to use Serato Flip in this new video walkthrough.
In this week's video series I'll share with you what I do outside of the DJ world and the other hobbies and interests that I am involved with. I've been a DJ since about 11 years old, but I also have many other duties and a totally separate way of making a living that most people don't know about. Check out this quick video and let us know how you manage to juggle DJ life with other responsibilities or hobbies that you may be interested in.
The new Allen & Heath two-channel Xone:23C professional DJ mixer has excellent build quality, an internal USB DJ soundcard with DVS capabilities, Mixvibes LE software, and an X:Link connector to easily link to other Allen & Heath Xone:K series controllers. The Xone:23C is also like a 2+2 channel mixer since it has separate gain knobs for each of the four RCA inputs on the rear of the mixer. Watch our unboxing & first impressions video while we work on the review.
