Last couple of months

I’ve been off for a while doing mostly work for my day job, but I’m back to just give some scoops on what I’ve been looking at for the last couple of months.
Korg NanopadOn the gadget side, I’ve indulged and bought a Korg Nanopad. Ever since I saw Ean Golden playing around with it I just had to have it. Check out this convincing piece of performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2pP4FDZERE
I’ll upload a midi mapping later on for using it as a controller unit when using Traktor with timecode CD or Vinyl.
Check out Ean Golden site: http://www.djtechtools.com/.
New TRAKTOR!I’ve upgraded my Traktor to version 1.1 and I’m so satisfied with the new features.

New HOTKEY SETUPI made a hotkey setup which I feel is the bomb and that everyone should have. I haven’t got time to document it quite yet, but I’ll get to that this month. I promise/hope…
The idea was basically that I don’t want ANY buttons that can mess up my performance on hand on the keyboard. It’s happened one too many times that I’m trying to search for a track and mess up because I wasn’t in the search window.
You can download it on the Sevendays site: http://sites.google.com/a/sevendays.no/sevendays-dj-s/DJ-Crew/Fredrik-C3/files

EKS OTUSI just got this baby for demo and trial. It's a nice controller but I haven't had time to fully set it up. I'm hoping to get cracking next month on this superstar controller and I'll keep you updated once I get started.

Check it out on http://www.eks.fi/

Enjoy and keep on sending me emails with comments.
