Thanks Ill

Hope you’re doing good man

Yep, synth riff from one of the supplied Sample packs baked in, few other bits sampled in fresh too

Sequences about 10 patterns and then just jammed with them live whilst recording it into ableton.

Love this machine.

My local dj/synth shop love it too and shake their heads at how low key it is.

Had a scratch dj friend round today and he live scratched on a deck whilst I sampled him live into the djs and built a beat. He couldn’t belive the speed and flow lol.

Glad we got in while we did Ill

Keep well brother

Ha yeah, I thought I was the only one recording and playing patterns into the DAW. I love that you get a bit of Digitakt control over the sequences, lots of remixes can be made on the fly. Good one Cornish!

Pioneer created something on a level that other companies have not thought up yet. Because the DJS is focused on the DJ where conditions are more chaotic than a producer in the studio with a cup of coffee and newspaper, its more on the fly than any sampler in history.

I love that its kinda Roland SP-ish too, though I wish it did have its 180 minute limit per pad like the SPs but 1 minute per pad is cool, stereo or mono. :-D

To me it looks like they did that live oriented play with the new Squid sequencer also. Looks like it would pair well with the djs-1000. I was pretty skeptical seeing it in action on the first part of the marketing video, but after watching the whole thing and seeing features explained, then checking price of it, it looks pretty sweet.

My Spectralis 2 sequencer has features like that to flip around the sequence live in a bunch of different ways and never have to stop the sequencer running. It’s one reason why I gave up the DAW for hardware. Sitting and tediously mixing is fun in its own right, but I like to play. Guitar, keys, drums, live sequencers.

Exactly my man. Even though my thing is Hip Hop, I like being musical in my craft and keep it going until I can think of a perfect outro ending. Sometimes it can go on for hours until I realized an outro :mrgreen:

The SP-16 is on the fly too. I totally slept on that but it wasn't on the DJS' level until a couple updates later. I still bought it even after much research between the two. The Squid looks like a sequencer but I haven't seen it in action yet since its notice. Guess, there's more by now. :idea:
