    Streaming Service Pulselocker Shuts Down 

    Pulselocker, the DJ-focused music streaming service, just announced that it is ceasing operations. In an email sent out to users, Pulselocker cited ďa combination of market circumstances and financial constraintsĒ as the reasons for shutting down.

    Pulselocker steadily gained traction these past few years, gaining integration within DJ software like Serato DJ, Rekordbox DJ, and Virtual DJ. It was one of only two music streaming services which allowed you to legally stream songs for public performance. Virtual DJís online music service is the other, which is split among three plans from different providers: Music (provided by iDJ Pool), Karaoke (DigiTrax and Karaoke Cloud), and Video (VJPro).

    Serato Releases DJ/Producer Sample Plugin 

    Serato just released Serato Sample, a plugin for DJ/producers looking for an easy way to chop, stretch, and key shift music files. It has an interface that will be familiar to Serato DJ users consisting of a waveform display and 16 hot cue pads, and it uses Serato's own Pitch 'n Time algorithm for time stretching and pitch shifting. It works within digital audio workstations (DAWs) like Ableton Live, FL Studio and Logic Pro.

    Serato Sample works by allowing you to assign up to 16 cue points in a piece of audio such as a loop, one shot, or even an entire song. Each cue point can be manipulated in a number of ways, such as changing its pitch, and speeding it up or slowing it down. You then trigger cue points using your mouse, computer keyboard, a pad controller like the Push 2, Maschine, Novation Launchpad, or any other Midi-enabled controller.

    Best DJ Controller for Beginners 

    The DJ controller is now at the forefront of the digital dj era, and there are more than enough to choose from. At last count as of this post, there were more than 120 DJ controllers from major manufacturers, and most of them offer something different. So as someone who is just starting out, we wouldn't be surprised that it's difficult to decide on the best dj controller for beginners. Thankfully, we've got lots of experience in this department, and we'll help clear a few things up.

    Before you get started, it's important to gain a bit of an idea of what you're looking for. With such a saturated area of the DJ world, you'll get lost in the features, and be completely indecisive as to what you need and what you don't need. It can almost be intimidating as well, with some controllers costing nearly $2,000 (which may not represent the budget of a beginner DJ), and some costing under $100 (which may not have the right features). So read through this, and hopefully, you'll have an idea of what's right for you soon enough.
