HF Wireless DJ Headphones

Numark HF Wireless DJ Headphones

Designed to free the DJ from the restrictions of a traditional fixed-length headphone cable and thus allow greater movement and flexibility while performing, the Numark HF Wireless headphones provide superb audio performance, great wireless range and an “all night long” battery that really delivers on its promise.

The key to its superior wireless streaming is its Bluetooth® 4.0 technology with NFC pairing, so signal connection is always strong and clear. The HF Wireless has a wireless range of over 30 feet for great freedom of movement while monitoring the musical delivery. In addition, the unit’s built-in rechargeable battery affords 10 hours of music playback on a single charge, so those 10:00 p.m.–4:00 a.m. gigs are no problem.

Other thoughtful touches that make HF Wireless a pleasure to use are the on-ear cup for great bass response and outstanding noise isolation, a compact, collapsible design with built-in microphone and wide-range 40mm drivers that deliver detailed, articulate sound and well-defined bass—essential for perfect beatmatching. Plus, the HF Wireless headphones come with a 4 ft. cable with 1/8-inch stereo plug, so the DJ doesn’t need a second set of headphones. Wireless or wired, these are the only ones you need!

The HF Wireless headphone will retail with an MSRP of £49.99 GBP and will be exhibited at Winter NAMM, January 22-25, Booth 6700 in Anaheim, CA.

HoRNet Plug-Ins releases BSharry Key Detector for Windows

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jan 14, 2015 - comment 0 comments

HoRNet Plug-Ins has released BSharry Key Detector, a software application that will detect the song key for every mp3 in your library.

HoRNet BSharry Key Detector

Key detector is a software designed to help DJs to do harmonic mixing, in the words of wikipedia:

The primary goal of harmonic mixing is to create a smooth transition between songs. Songs in the same key do not generate a dissonant tone when mixed. This technique enables DJs to create a harmonious and consonant mashup with any music genre.

Key Detector is able to analyze a single mp3 or a folder (and it’s sub-folders) and scan all the mp3s contained. The software is powered by Opens internal link in current windowHoRNet SongKey which empowers artificial intelligence algorithms to detect the key of the song, three different keys are identified and ranked in order from the most probable to the least, the software is then able to write the identified key to the ID3 tags of the mp3.

Key Detector for Windows and is available for purchase for 19.90 EUR.

Native Instruments releases the fourth video in THE FUTURE OF DJING series featuring Carl Cox

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 15, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has launched a new video on the Future of DJing, featuring Carl Cox.

Native Instruments today continues the #futureofdjing discussion with the fourth in a series of videos aimed at exploring how technological innovation plays a role in shaping the future of DJ culture. Previously featuring artists MK, Pan-Pot, and Nic Fanciulli, the next installment in THE FUTURE OF DJING video series features pioneering UK house and techno legend Carl Cox on how he keeps his musical passion alive, and how TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is taking a new generation of creativity forward.

Instrumental to the success of electronic music in the UK, Carl Cox has since been considered a true musical ambassador and innovator – still keeping fresh and drawing crowds, year after year. Shot on location in Sydney, Australia, the video shows Carl at the Stereosonic Festival talking about how his passion for DJing is rooted in his love for sharing quality music with others – and fueled by cutting-edge new technology.

Technology as a source of inspiration is one reason why Carl Cox is embracing the new TRAKTOR KONTROL S8, and discovering all the creative power the flagship all-in-one TRAKTOR controller offers. He describes what he likes most about the S8 is the creative challenge it presents to his performance and how enhanced Remix Decks control allows to“…actually produce something right now, live in front of an audience.” Carl provides a first-hand look at the changing art of DJing – highlighting that new DJ technology like TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is“… enabling to create the next generation of sound.”

The story continues online with #futureofdjing.
