Music Hardware : My blue, uh, Red, uh silver Swede Synths - macmusicAn update on both Clavia and Elektron, the respectively red and silver synth makers:

Music Software : AE2003: Ask The DJ 1.4 round the corner - macmusicAsk The DJ will next week reach version 1.4 (29$). It is an intuitive DJ software with BPM detection, smart list sorting (on bpm, rhythm and volume) and only 3 buttons and two sliders for control. It even allow you to export the result in one or multiple files in CD quality. More on it in our soft tracker

New features in 1.4 are:
- Search engine in Unicode so that even our Japanese friends for example can find their favorite tunes.
- An explorer window to manage the tracks an other way, also helping iPod users to move their files from their little white friend.
- Availability of a French version (including manual and help) along the English one.

Now our members searching a soft for DJing will have _no_ excuses.
And you know, if you hide the main window in the dock, the dancer will start moving in rhythm in the file part of the dock

- STRETCH, an engine that pitch shift, stretch, works on timbre and harmonics. this way, as the resampling engine used before is still there you can plays the samples with very different timbres as both methods are treating harmonics in STRETCH much more elegantly.
Add to this it permit a realistic glide with portamento that is natural.
- a loop function using the STRECH engine that in one click synchronize, pitch shift, strech etc. the loops loaded in Sampletank and you can play them without even thinking about the math crunching behind. Ear the STRETCH!
