Publié dans Events

Ikutaro Kakehashi, father of MIDI and founder or Roland, has died on 2017-04-01.

On Namm Show in January 1983, Roland and Sequential Circuits unveiled the Universal Musical Interface technology, whose name became MIDI ((Musical Instrument Digital Interface) later, in showing the communication between 2 synthesizers, a Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 and a Roland JX-3P.
Ikutaro Kakehashi (former president of Roland) and Dave Smith (former president of Sequencial Circuits) were awarded a Technical GRAMMY in 2013 for contributions to the development of MIDI.

The many uses of MIDI include the communication between DJ controllers and DJ software on Windows, Linux, macOS and iOS.

We offer our most sincere condolences to Ikutaro Kakehashi family.

Hercules Unveils DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at 2017 NAMM Show

Publié dans DJ Software

A brand-new version of the pro DJ software that lets users mix, create and have fun with their music in the most intuitive way possible

Anaheim, California – January 19, 2017 – Spearheaded by Hercules, a leader in mobile and professional DJ equipment, the DJUCED™ teams are thrilled to announce the company’s new enhanced version of their pro DJ software DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 at NAMM 2017.

A big part of the teams’ strength lies in the importance they place on listening to their user community when it comes to making improvements in DJUCED™, as was the case with the Sample Editor, and responding to the new expectations that have emerged from the base of 500,000 licensed users.

More precise than ever: A fully-scalable interface with 4K support, and high-resolution waveforms

One of the most important aspects for DJs – the ability to view the tracks that they’re working on as precisely as possible – has been taken into account in DJUCED™ 40° 3.5. To make things easier and more comfortable for DJs, the interface automatically adapts to all screen resolutions from 1024 x 600 right up to 4K displays.
What’s more, thanks to the new high-resolution waveforms, DJs can use a high-level zoom – with single-sample accuracy – with 6 different vivid color schemes available to enhance viewing precision and speed, and for better interaction with the DJ.
 
Beat Counter

Instantly view the beat alignment between “Master” and “Deck” for easier beatmatching with this new visual tool.
 
Discover even more great improvements!

The “Smart Mix” Automix feature can be used directly from the DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 file explorer. This feature helps users find the best-matching tracks to be played, in terms of BPM and key.

Vinyl Torque is an innovative new emulator that lets users feel the weight of real turntable platters, and use the “Brake effect”.

And last but certainly not least, improvements to the Scratch feature in DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 now ensure optimized compatibility with the Hercules DJControl Jogvision controller!

All of the following Hercules DJ controllers are compatible with DJUCED™ 40° 3.5:

•    New: Hercules DJControl Jogvision
•    Hercules DJControl Instinct P8
•    Hercules P32 DJ
•    Hercules Universal DJ
•    Hercules DJ Control AIR+ S Series
•    Hercules DJ Control AIR+
•    Hercules DJConsole RMX2
•    Hercules DJControlWaveM3
•    Hercules DJControlWave

The new DJUCED™ 40° 3.5 update is be available for download since January 19, 2017 – in the Downloads section at djuced.com.

Use a the same time the computer built-in sound card and the DJ controller audio in Mac OS

Publié dans Tech Tips

When the DJ software audio setup menu lets you select 1 audio device while you wish to use 2 sound cards simultaneously, the solution in Mac OS is aggregating devices.
The aggregate device is 1 virtual sound card aggregating 2 (or more) sound cards.

Here is an example to play
- the mix on the Mac built-in sound card
- the preview on the headphones output of the DJ controller Universal DJ
- in Djuced 40 3.1.0, in Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite).

1) Connect your DJ Controller to the Mac computer.

2) Set your 2 sound cards at the same sampling rate
- In Mac OS top bar, go to Go > Utilities
- Run Audio MIDI Setup
- If you don't come directly to the Audio Devices menu, go to Window > Show Audio Devices
- Select your DJ Controller, check its audio format, for example 44100 Hz with Hercules Universal DJ


- Select Built-in Output, make sure the audio format is the same as in your DJ controller, 44100Hz (=44.1kHz)



3) Create an aggregate device
- at the left bottom corner of the Audio Devices window, you have a + sign: click on it, and select "Create Aggregate Device"

- You can let it called "Aggregate Device" or give to this device the name you want, for example " Aggregate - Computer & Universal"
- In the list of audio devices included in the Aggregate device, check in the Use column the 2 audio devices "Built-in Output" and Hercules Universal DJ

Leave Audio MIDI Setup.

4) Run Djuced 40
- Go to the Settings: click on the gear wheel on the right top corner

 - you reach the audio settings menu
  in Audio Device, select the name of your aggregate device
  in Master field, select Output 1&2
  in the headphones field, select Output 5&6 


Click on OK. In Djuced 40, you now play
- the mix on your computer built-in sound card,
- the preview in the headphones output of your Universal DJ.
