2020 Year in Review for Xylio and DJs

2020 Year in Review for Xylio and DJs

We can certainly say that 2020 was a strange year. Lockdown year we might call it. Pretty much all DJs and KJs have had problems getting gigs to perform to and earning revenue for themselves and the family. 2020 year in review is basically an overview of what we and our fellow DJs did in 2020. Some of the more inventive DJs adapted to this new reality and embraced streaming / performing for radios or made collaborations with different companies to mix live for their online parties. Others...

Mix-in-Key (Harmonic Mixing) Improvements in future.dj pro 1.8.1

Mix-in-Key (Harmonic Mixing) Improvements in future.dj pro 1.8.1

If you're musically inclined or simply want your mixes to sound great you'll need to mix-in-key your tracks, also known as Harmonic Mixing. This is a technique where you're not only matching the BPM/tempo and beats but also matching the Musical Key. Why does a mix sound this good when you're also mixing in-key? Because the more notes 2 tracks have in common, the more alike they will sound. Notes? Yeah, stuff like C, D, E, F, G, A, B (or Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si). If both tracks are in, say,...

New controller: Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500

New controller: Hercules DJControl Inpulse 500

Future.dj pro adds support for a brand new controller from Hercules (released just a couple of weeks ago), the Inpulse 500. This is probably the best DJ controller Hercules has released thus far - the general feeling is of a high-quality controller. It looks pretty nice and it's even nicer in-the-flesh than in the picture). All the buttons press firmly with a satisfying click - especially the 16 PADs which are RGB. They can be different colours depending on the mode they're in. What also sets...
