I picked this article because I as I am sure tons of kids from Full Sail are a big fan of Soundcloud, they really support independent artists such as myself and more djs, singers and rappers. Soundcloud is how Lorde, (the singer of Royals) got discovered. So this article just sparked my interest in how they got together with Universal Music,   Sony Music and Warner Music which will up Soundclouds worth to aprox. $600 Million.

DJing With A Computer Keyboard

DJing With A Computer Keyboard | Djing and Music Producing | Scoop.it

Digital DJing and controllerism has come a long way from simply “laptop DJing” (say it with contempt for full effect), but for most digital DJs the laptop remains the central part of their setup. While there’s usually a better workflow than hunching over your keyboard, there are instances where using your computer’s keyboard gets the job done better than anything else. In this article we explore the best uses and mapping considerations for the buttons that you always have with you on your laptop!

I picked with to be in collection because with our new Macbooks that we get and all of us Recording Arts students and maybe even Recording Engineering use our laptops for protools or whatever software, this keyboard cover can be an easy and helpful tool to djing.

DJ'ing with a computer keyboard... oh god. This article supports being able to push one button in order to apply an effect without any ability to smoothly modulate that effect. To me this supports the notion that "anybody can DJ". While it does support live performance programs such as ableton or the widely used DJ software Serato, suggesting that people map controls to their keyboard seems like a terrible idea. The keyboard will have terrible response time compared to a controller, it will not give a person a feel for the true art of DJ'ing and it will only help promote this new age wave of fake DJ's.

Personally I don't like this setup as much as having a table. I'd rather have the table because it'll actually look like your trying to mix and manipulate the music instead of looking at a computer screen and pushing keys. On the other hand this does provide a positive impact for those who are beginning to DJ and want to broaden their knowledge on these kind of systems. This also provides a quicker way of applying all your sound affects and loading ability's.

I added this because I actually think this is pretty cool, and it just goes to show you how technology is progressing especially with music. Similar to the Leap motion this new app uses samples or instruments within your computer or iphone  to make music or a series of musical notes.

This is insanely impressive technology. With this app created for iOS, you can control features of midi instruments with literally a flick of the wrist. MIDI technology truly has no limits. After viewing the demonstration of this app, it makes me want to go try it out for myself. You can use the space in front of you and movements of your hand to transform the way your instrument sounds.
