Denon DJ has just announced their latest controller, the LC6000 PRIME. Bearing many similarities to its renowned SC6000 PRIME, the Denon DJ LC6000 PRIME is billed as “the world’s most versatile DJ controller,” capable of bringing “professional club-style layout, design, and control to both standalone and laptop-based DJ workflows.”

The controller features a stacked dual-layer waveform display, ensuring correct information for each track is clearly displayed around the larger waveforms. The 8.5” jog wheel, multi-function performance pads, 100mm dual-precision pitch fader, and navigation control allows for more creative mix control. Also, the entire set-up is powered by a single USB connection.

In related news, Serato has released Serato DJ Pro 2.5.1, which brings support for the LC6000 PRIME as an Official Serato Accessory.

Watch Mojaxx’s review of the Denon DJ LC6000 PRIME below.

Watch a Demonstration of Ableton Live 11’s Vinyl Synthesis Technology

Italian DJ/producer John Type has demonstrated Ableton Live 11 in a creative video.

Via vinyl synthesis, Type has innovated playing and sequencing a vinyl record like a synthesizer with the new features of Ableton Live 11. Vestax PDX-3000 and Technics SL-1210 turntables are impressively used to sync the beats of two distinctively different tracks to demonstrate the possibilities of vinyl synthesis. The Vestax PDX-3000 plays the melody of Daft Punk‘s 1995 single “Da Funk,” which morphs into the bass arpeggio of Donna Summer‘s 1978 classic “I Feel Love” because the analog pitch of the Technics SL-1210 changes the speed of the drums and Ableton Live 11 — via the Tempo Follower feature — stays in sync.

To pull off this impressive feat, a few pieces of hardware are required. Foremost, a turntable with MIDI pitch control — the Vestax Controller One / PDX-3000 or Reloop RP-8000 — is essential. An audio and MIDI interface is needed to connect the audio from the mixer and control the MIDI turntable. As well, a MIDI controller is key.

Ableton Live 10 Suite / 11 Standard requires MIDI Envelope, Utility, and Auto Filter plugins to allow for this work to occur. Plus, a vinyl with a synth tone in the locked groove — commonly found in Battle Breaks / DJ Tools is key to allowing this DJ skill to be performed.

The tools and skills he used in the demo are available for free on his website. Type has also included a detailed breakdown of how he accomplished this.

Watch the three-minute video above.
