In a world where manufacturers keep making the life of a DJ easier with all kinds of ‘sync’ functions, there will always be people who do things … differently! The video below shows us how you still can do a reasonably proper DJ set with a totally exotic approach. Why not use two Elektron Octatracks and just sync it oldskool … by ear!?
Maxime F (France) explains: “No midi, the two octatracks are synchronized by ear (dj style). Video captured with a samsung galaxy S2, audio through a steinberg mr816X. Sorry for the distortion at times , the audio interface being behind me, levels are hard to keep track of while playing. This is a work in progress, many things still need to be improved.“
