The Pro Audio section of the B&H SuperStore comprises almost a quarter of the first floor. In this area, customers can peruse keyboards, speakers, a DJ area, electronic drums, Apple Mac Pro workstations, software, and even a soundproof booth with microphones. The audiophile, sound technician, musician, or gear enthusiast will be dazed by all of the audio equipment surrounding them—which they can play with, too!
Take a look at our photo tour of the Pro Audio section, and listen to some rockin' tunes while you're doing so.
While vinyl has been making a comeback in the past few years, there is no denying that the future of mainstream music is digital (analog lovers, feel free to groan here). Pioneer has released a couple of excellent, DJ friendly CDJ digital multiplayers that allow you to manipulate digital music in much the same way you would work with analog music.
A new gadget is due in July that's sure to cause some excitement in the DJ world. It's called the Dicer from Novation, and it was designed to fully maximize the real estate in your rig by mounting on the corners of turntables, CDJ's, and laptops. Plus, like Twix candy bars, you get two Dicers for the price of one (a Dicer for each deck). Two for me, no dice for you!
Even if it looks like a prop from V, the Jellyfish Effect LED Light from American-DJ could become more than an alien visitor for the itinerant DJ shopping for a portable light show. The 5-pound, 12.5 inch-wide light generator, with handle for carrying or hanging, provides two types of effects: beams that drop down and bathe dancers (or an empty floor) in red, green, blue and white light and a color-changing, glowing case that can be admired from a distance.
When the average person takes a look at a grid controller, they're likely to think it's a miniature disco dance floor where your fingers can strut like a young John Travolta. Interestingly, this interpretation isn't too far off. Mass produced grid controllers have only been available for a short time and have proved to be a hit, at least for the small niche of people who already had a need for one. If you have no idea what you're supposed to do with a grid controller, that's okay--you're not alone.
