Tribe XR has today announced a groundbreaking global partnership with Pioneer DJ, an AlphaTheta Corporation brand, that brings market-leading DJ products to VR users around the world for the first time ever.

Whether they’re first-timers who want to learn the basics, or experienced DJs looking for a new way to perform, Tribe XR users can now use the flagship Pioneer DJ CDJ-3000 professional multi player and DJM-900NXS2 professional mixer to mix and scratch their own music – all from their virtual reality headset. And, when they’re ready to share their talents with the world, stream sets live to platforms including Facebook Live, Twitch and YouTube.

Tribe XR users can use CDJ-3000 and DJM-900NXS2

Tribe XR is available on the Oculus Quest platform, and PC VR headsets including Oculus Rift and Steam VR, at a one-off cost of $29.99 / £22.99. A Tribe Plus subscription, an optional membership, gives access to additional content – such as 4 CDJ-3000 decks instead of the standard 2, equipment skins with innovative designs, live video workshops with resident DJ mentors, and 3D on-demand lessons – for an additional monthly charge of $4.99 / £3.49. Tribe has recently launched immersive 3D training that teaches aspiring DJs the basics of mixing in pre-recorded classes as well as live group lessons. DJs can also create private rooms and hang out with their friends at virtual house parties, taking it in turns to provide the soundtrack.

Commenting on the partnership, Mark Grotefeld, AlphaTheta Corporation said: “Pioneer DJ has long been the market-leading hardware and software brand in the DJ industry. Today, we’re delighted to announce our first step into virtual reality via this partnership with Tribe XR. We’re thrilled to be working with Tribe XR to harness VR technology to enable the next generation of DJs to take their first steps in learning the art of mixing, as well as enabling home DJs and professionals to practice, play, and perform on authentic versions of Pioneer DJ products in a virtual environment.”

Tribe XR users can use CDJ-3000 and DJM-900NXS2

Tribe XR CEO and co-founder, Tom Impallomeni, said: “Tribe XR is the leading VR DJ school and performance platform globally. Our goal is to turn aspiring DJs into performing DJs. We are delighted that our community can now learn and perform with the CDJ-3000 and DJM-900NXS2, in virtual reality, no matter where they are. We hope this will inspire home DJs around the world to become professionals and global stars.”

Denon Prime 4

A few months ago I purchased the Denon Prime Go. It’s a very small, but powerful and professional standalone Dj console. (at the time of writing this its not possible to use as a controller with a laptop.) You can use it with Engine Prime Software to prepare your music on a computer and sync your music to a USB or SD Card. However you can directly insert a USB with music and Engine OS on the Denon Gear will automatically analyze your tracks on the fly. I fell in love with having the option of not using a laptop all the time. The touchscreen on the unit is very good too. ( I’ll do a complete review of this unit in another post. )

So even though i love the Pioneer DDJ-1000, i decided to go ahead and order the Denon Prime 4. The big top of the line brother of the Prime Go. I also ordered a SSD 1TB Hard Drive to install my core hand picked tracks into the hard drive bay on the bottom part of the Prime 4. I love the idea of just booting up this console hit record and creating a quick mix whenever creativity strikes me. ( can also do this on prime go from anywhere since that unit is also battery powered ) The touchscreen on the Prime 4 is 10.1 inches about the size of an iPad. Gives you full control of everything on the console from settings , to waveforms , and crates/ playlists. In the latest Denon Prime 4 firmware, Engine OS updates they have added a lot of features like Serato Compatibility, horizontal waveforms , loop triggers, streaming from dropbox, beatport , and tidal directly. Denon is listening to its user base via its forums and delivering on the most wanted features.

There are a few things i would like to see added (specifically on Engine OS for the Prime GO ) Like auto gain, the ability to see the levels on the gains per channel and a few others. The one that i really would love to see very soon is the ability to search within a crate. Right now the search is global , so if i know the song im looking for is inside the create im currently in , Engine OS will give me a global search and possibly showing every version of the song i have. I havnt tested sync on the Prime 4 bc i rarely use it other than to do some crazy transitions on Serato. However on the Prime Go it doesnt sync the same way and i can’t really do my technique on that unit. I have to practice it a bit more or find a workaround. I will test it with the Prime 4 soon and give this article an update.

The crossfader on the Denon Prime 4 does feel a bit on the cheap side , but its replaceable so you can buy a better one and install it. I’ve only had about 3 sessions of 25 mins to play around with the Prime 4 but its good enough for me (for now). Everything on this unit seems solid. I’ve played around with the effects and i like all the options and that they are post fader. (means if i add echo and bring the volume down, the echo will stay until it fades away normally or you turn the effect off. This is a big plus.

The Prime 4 has two mic inputs with the option of XLR or 1/4 inch for both mic inputs. All 4 channels can be selected as line in to use with turntables , cdjs, or any other instrument sampler or accessory. All 3 main outputs are all XLR ( Main out, Booth & Zone ) Cool thing is the Zone output can be mapped to the master or channel 4 in which you can load a playlist and play music to a different room. Both Zone & Booth have EQ controls available also.

The prime 4 unit aside from the Hard Drive Bay has 4 additional USB slots and SD card Reader. If connected to WIFI you can stream from TIDAL, Beatsource, Beatport link, & Dropbox. Another recent update has made it compatible with Serato. I literally just tested that feature out before the writing of this article. You need to switch the Prime 4 to controller mode where it basically acts as a midi controller. You can’t use any of the built in effects on the Prime 4 while in controller mode (also works with Virtual DJ) I wish the serato integration was a little better and that it would show the music waveforms on the Denon’s screen. I read in the forums that this is on Serato’s side, they need to update it so that it sends this info to the Prime 4. C’mon Serato ! Do it. I also briefly tested Serato Video works great as the unit is just acting as a Midi Controller for Serato. However switching back to the hard drive or a flash drive from Serato requires a re-start of the unit. Hopefully this transition can be done more seamlessly in the future with an update.

The jogwheels are touch capacity just like the ones on the DDJ-SX & SZ controllers. But they feel more sturdy and with more weight to them. You can also add your logo or custom artwork to the the display on them. The looping section is great. I love having the knob that i can make the loop longer or shorter with just a twist. The Prime 4 also has a built in section to edit the beatgrids and with the latest firmware you can now beatgrid tracks with changing bpms like transitions. I havnt used this section yet but i will test it as soon as i get more familiar with the Prime 4.

Overall i think the Pros outweigh the con’s which for me can be fixed via updates. Looking forward to playing more on this unit as it gives the option to play in several different ways. Oh one more thing i dislike is it doesn’t have a sampler built in, unless you are using Serato then slicer tab reverts to Sampler to activate the hotcues. Im sure Virtual Dj will also support this but i have not used that software. Right now Denon with its current lineup finally has the potential to give Pioneer a run for the top DJ Gear in the market. I’ve always loved Denon DJ Gear since the Denon 2500’s & 2600’s Dual Cd player Deck. It’s comeback time now.

Twitter has talks to Acquire Clubhouse

By now everyone has probably heard of the newest social (talk) app “ClubHouse”. Currently at the time of writing this article it is still an invite-only iOS app that has managed to get over 10 million downloads in just 1 year. Honestly no app has been this exciting in a very long time. 

 

Every other social media network has seen the threat of users flocking to this platform and is rushing to copy the features. Obviously Clubhouse is not for every one, but it is a genuine way to connect with others that share the same interest in real time. I believe this is mashup of Live Talk Radio, Podcast, and the ability to have Live interaction instantly from an audience. Simple yet groundbreaking. In fact going back to my initial comment that everyone wants a piece of this new category “Social Audio”,  Twitter is launching Twitter Spaces, Facebook (yesterday tested Hotline), LinkedIn, Discord ( launched their own version already ), Spotify, Mark Cuban is in closed beta testing Fireside, and Slack are working on their own attempts at Clubhouse competitors. This space is about to get real busy. Who will win?

 

This is interesting since twitter has been running Beta on Twitter Spaces for quite some time now (only about 10,000 to 15,000 account can create rooms at the moment but anyone can join the conversations.) Now the info has been released that twitter wanted to acquire Clubhouse for $4 Billion ! They are nearly weeks away from a full scale launch of Twitter spaces why would they want to acquire Clubhouse. (Integration into their own system?? or shut it down?) What this brings to light is that they feel Clubhouse is worth 4 Billion and that Clubhouse did not want to sell leading to the conclusion that Clubhouse founders have a good vision of where their product is heading. I’m rooting for clubhouse to stay king of Social Audio as i love the app and bounce around rooms all day while working. So much content and people willing to share their knowledge are currently populating the app at its current state. Just Last week i came close to 96 hours in 6 days on the app. ???? 

 

Clubhouse releases almost bi-weekly updates and the founders are listening to its users to implement the most wanted features but carefully calculating every move. They hold a Townhall Meeting room every week. (Usually Sundays at 12pm EST for 1 hour to discuss the progress of the week in app development and answer the most asked questions and concerns the users of the platform have.)

 

The latest Clubhouse update introduced monetization for the content creators. Basically a send money button in the bio so that if you are giving out great content the audience or anyone can send you a tip. Clubhouse WILL NOT TAKE A CUT!!! 100% goes to the content creators on the app and the small transaction fee is charged to the person sending the money. This is groundbreaking as no company has ever valued the user creating the content that makes or breaks their platform. This could be the right step in keeping the top users on the app from going to competing services as they launch. Clubhouse has been working around the clock to release the android version of the app which is estimated for an early May release, we are weeks away from a whole new set of users from all over the world. It will be an extremely interesting space to watch in the next few months and see where this all goes and what new updates are released.

 

If you are on Clubhouse be sure to follow me and join the 2 Clubs I admin on the platform so far. If you need an invite and currently have an iOS device (iPhone or iPad) DM me on instagram @djricky305 with clubhouse and your phone#. If and when i get more invites i can add you to the platform.

Clubhouse has been working around the clock to release the android version of the app which is estimated for an early May release, we are weeks away from a whole new set of users from all over the world. It will be an extremely interesting space to watch in the next few months and see where this all goes and what new updates are released.
