Rekordbox - EDIT MODE

Edit mode in the rekordbox Creative plan makes it easy to make custom versions of tracks and prepare for your performances – even if you’ve never produced or edited music before.

Clone sections of a track that you want to repeat so the intro, outro, or break is extended. Delete parts that you think will suck energy from your mix. Or copy sections and paste them anywhere else in the track. These are just a few of the useful things you can do in Edit mode.

Everything stays perfectly in sync with the beatgrid and, when it’s ready, you can export your unique track edit as an audio file and drop it in your next set.

DOOM Running On A Pioneer DJ Controller (XDJ-RX2)

Recording mixes at home is notoriously tough. Trying to re-create the vibe of the club with no crowd – it usually leads to over-doing it on the FX, or mixing out too early just for something to do, and messing up the transition. Admit it, you’ve done it. A YouTube user called TheRasteri has the solution – he’s has hacked a Pioneer DJ XDJ-R2 to run the classic videogame DOOM. In the video, the user can be seen plugging a USB stick into the R2, as well as a keyboard into the second USB port and loading the game onto the touchscreen.

Resorts World Las Vegas Makes Its Debut Next Summer, With Several New Clubs

As a customer, Ronn Nicolli is no stranger to the chaos that ensues when trying to get into a nightclub. "I've gone to clubs in other cities, and you start the night dealing with a less-than-positive experience at the door," he says. "Then you have to battle back from that to have a good time."

From behind the rope, Nicolli is also familiar with the rollercoaster ride that comes with working at and running some of Las Vegas' most successful clubs.

In his new role as vice president of nightlife and lifestyle marketing at Resorts World Las Vegas, the 15-year Las Vegas industry staple hopes to shift both of those paradigms, and he'll have an entire 100,000-square-foot entertainment ecosystem in which to do it. The new $4.3 billion casino-resort with three Hilton hotel brands and a 5,000-seat theatre will debut in summer 2021 across from Wynn on the site of the former Stardust. It will feature Zouk Nightclub; a Balinese-style beach club called AYU; a vibe dining restaurant dubbed FUHU; and RedTail, a social gaming bar.

These venues serve as a big stateside debut for Zouk Group. What began as Zouk Nightclub in Singapore 29 years ago has since expanded into a portfolio of dining and entertainment venues and a music festival headed by CEO Andrew Li. In Vegas, these environments are designed to keep Resorts World customers "in house" to pump up non-gaming offerings, which account for about 70% of a resort's revenue these days.

Lil Wayne Recording Process Captured On Video

The recording booth is Lil Wayne’s sanctuary. In the studio, he’s at ease and peace on his own planet as the King Martian. Throughout his over 20-year career, the New Orleans MC has dropped an ungodly amount of music. And during that time, there are plenty of Weezy's bars, songs or projects that wowed us. As humans, we have an innate curiosity about how things come together once we witness something special. In this case, Wayne is that extraordinary talent. And luckily, whether he was aware that he was being documented or not, he's been captured a good amount of times cooking up his special Good Burger-type sauce from scratch in the studio over the years.

While watching Lil Wayne record a song is rare, you could hit a quick Google search right now and witness footage of the lauded rapper back in the 1990s as a member of the Hot Boys. As the young blood in the group, he seemed to be more reserved than the dominant figure he would soon become. Of course, time went on, he got older and his confidence grew (in 2005, he proclaimed himself to be the "best rapper alive"). At a certain point, he knew that he was the best and confidently asserted himself as such. Tunechi internalized his crown and in the process of him ascending to the top, the lyrical beast was filmed in his natural habitat.

Ty Dolla Sign ft Skrillex : Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

The Tiny Desk is working from home for the foreseeable future. Introducing NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concerts, bringing you performances from across the country and the world. It's the same spirit — stripped-down sets, an intimate setting — just a different space.

October 28, 2020 | Bobby Carter - Superstar songwriter Ty Dolla $ign has too much history with NPR Music and too many hits under his belt to deliver us just any ol' Tiny Desk from home. He assembled a roster of frequent collaborators (including Skrillex) under one roof to perform some jams from his new album, aptly titled Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, as well as a few of his chart-topping singles.

While many know Ty as pop's go-to feature artist, the Los Angeles native has steadily crafted his own diverse catalog, with more than a dozen albums, mixtapes and EPs to his name. With Featuring, he flips the script, roping A-list pop stars — like Post Malone, Nicki Minaj, Future and Young Thug — into his own world, using them to define the Ty Dolla sound.
