New Roland DJ and BPM Supreme Announce Fall U.S. Tour


Roland DJ and BPM Supreme Announce Fall U.S. Tour

The Roland DJ team and BPM Supreme are touring the U.S. this fall to connect and inspire DJs across the country with Roland’s newly released DJ-505 and DJ-202 controllers. Each event features performances from top-shelf artists like Miles Medina and DJ Brace, presentations from BPM Supreme, and locally-sourced sonic flavor to drive conversations about music, gear, and culture in intimate listening-room style settings. Plus, all attendees will be entered to win great swag and offers from Roland, BPM Supreme, and Serato. Tour dates kick off this month on October 26 in Los Angeles and wrap on November 21 in Miami.

Record pool leaders BPM Supreme, who will give presentations during each event, have also partnered with Roland to offer exclusive three-month BPM Supreme Standard memberships (typically $19.99 per month) to U.S. customers who register their newly purchased Roland DJ-808, DJ-505 or DJ-202 controllers.

Equipped with features derived from Roland’s popular DJ-808 DJ Controller (DJ Mag Tech Awards 2017 Runner Up, Ultimate DJ Controller), Roland’s new DJ-505 and DJ-202 controllers offer onboard Roland TR drum sounds, dual low-latency platters, Serato DJ integration, vocal FX, and more. With Roland’s newly expanded DJ-series lineup, DJs and music producers can choose from three Roland DJ controller models to suit all types of setups. The DJ-505 is a two-channel, four-deck Serato DJ controller that comes with the complete Serato Tool Kit, and the DJ-202 is a forward-thinking Serato DJ intro controller that gives DJs the features and layout of a full-size pro controller in a rugged mobile unit.

Tour dates are as follows:

October 26 Marley Waters @ Astro Audio Video Lighting 7-11p (Glendale, CA)
October 29 DJ Ease @ Blend DJ Institute Las Vegas 2-6p (Las Vegas, NV)
November 1 Miles Medina @ Pitbull Audio 5-7p (San Diego, CA)
November 9 Fast Eddie @ 123DJ 7-9p (Chicago, IL)
November 11 DJ Jaycee @ Blend DJ Institute Aurora, CO 1-3p (Aurora, CO)

November 16 Mell Starr @ Scratch DJ Academy 7-9p (New York, NY)
November 21 DJ Brace @ D.A.S. Audio 7-9p (Miami, FL)

Marley Waters, one of the many talented artists on Roland and BPM Supreme’s fall tour, is looking forward to connecting with aspiring DJs and sharing some of his tips for keeping it fresh during the tour’s opening night in L.A. “As a DJ/producer, we are the vibe curators. We can leverage a night of sound clashing into the best time of your life. Roland's DJ controllers are the perfect assistant to provide a smooth, creative fusion for on-the-fly mixing. As long as you keep it wavy, the people will love you,” added Waters.

New SAE London - Masterclass with Sample Magic CEO Sharooz Raoofi

SAE London is delighted to invite you to a masterclass with Sample Magic CEO Sharooz Raoofi covering all creative aspects of sound design, an introduction to audio instrument creation, audio software development, creative direction and the inside process of making sound samples and loops.

Timed at 90 minutes, Sharooz will take the audience through Sample Magic’s award-winning range of audio software plugins and instruments, ranging from those built in the Juce environment to the inner workings of the Native Instruments Kontakt script. Focusing on creative elements as opposed to programming, Sharooz will take the class through what it takes to make a ground-breaking plugin from inception, selecting a GUI, UX, choosing a sound design team, to marketing and releasing a successful product.

In the second half Sharooz will present some of Sample Magic’s best known audio products, including many sounds licensed onto hit records and used by renowned producers worldwide. What makes a great audio sample? How are sounds made? What are the legal repercussions? How much processing do sounds have? What formats are sounds made in? How are sounds expected to be used? Concluding with a real time demonstration on making actual commercially released audio loops.

The session will conclude with a Q&A and an in-depth discussion on any of the topics mentioned.

LONDON - 23 NOV 2017 - 17:30 TO 19:00 GMT

New Basic Electricity [EU]


Basic Electricity might be the longest running modular synthesizer event in Berlin. It returns to König Otto in Neukölln on 24th of November for its 24 edition. Basic Electricity usually has two or more concerts per evening, very well curated artists and a conceptual focus on exploring and experiencing sound.

Basic Electricity #24:

Thomas Ankersmit explores the boundaries of sound with his Serge modular synthesizer. He has shaken the walls and cast his inner-ear illusions in venues like Berlin’s Berghain and the Tate Modern in London.

Konstantine Fioretos contests the notion of what constitutes a modular performance, exploring jazz and contemporary orchestral music forms by probing at the hidden opportunities inside obsolete MIDI sound devices.

König Otto is housed in the former Kindl brewery. It’s an amazing space with a great ambient sound. We’re looking forward to seeing you on November 24th for Basic Electricity #24!

New SoundGirls Roundtable: Diversity in Audio [US]


SoundGirls Roundtable: Diversity in Audio

Professional Audio is sorely deficient in gender, racial and ethnic diversity. While there are not accurate statistics available, it is a commonly accepted that only 5% of audio engineers are women. Eric Deggans of NPR commenting on a 2015 study from USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, said that “the #OscarsSoWhite should probably be to changed to #HollywoodSoWhite.”

What can we do to change the face of the industry and how do we handle sexism and bias in the industry. Join us for a roundtable to help create a blueprint for change. We will have best practice information for dealing with sexual harassment. Stay tuned for updates on speakers.
