People have been asking where videos are! Particularly my latest gig log I have been teasing! I tried to film a vlog about whats going on but I wasn’t happy with how it came out so have decided to type instead!
Since Christmas I have been trying to upload two videos a week. Every Monday and Thursday. Trying to do this alongside other work and Uni has been a big struggle but up until this point I have managed to do it. However work must come first so I am scraping the schedule. Also I was making videos for the sake of making a video to fill a slot so they weren’t produced to the best of my ability!
From now on videos are going to be released when I have the chance to make them to a standard I am happy with. Hopefully this will mean at least one video a week but that will change depending on my work load. Unfortunately right now I have no free time to make videos! I have two big deadlines coming up next week and am spending every waking minute working towards them. For that reason videos will return in just over a week on Monday 30th March (2015!).
I have lots of exciting things coming up. This gig log will be online on Monday 30th and I am making a video looking at the Elation Sniper 2Rs. I am also planning to spend a few days this Easter filming a new video series on projection mapping so stay tuned for that. Lots of cool projects to come!
Thanks as always for your support! Practice and Enjoy!
Hi all. Sorry the JLDJUK.com website has been so empty over the past few months. I have been wanting to concentrate on the content going out on YouTube so haven’t been updating the website. Now I have a few minutes of spare time I thought I would write a little update post to mention a few things.
Firstly this years BPM & Pro show was amazing. Special thanks to everyone who came up and said hi! There have been loads of videos going out onto the channel over the past week looking at all the new gear from companies like American DJ, Pioneer and Numark. Still have a few more videos to come including my first ever 4K YouTube upload!
I have now started my second year of university and have settled into my new house. Unfortunately the internet isn’t much of an improvement from what I have at home so don’t expect any HD live streams any time soon!
Last thing to talk about is to do with my camera. I may have mentioned it on Facebook but my old camera, my Canon 600D, decided to stop working a few days before I went away on holiday. It refused to power on, had glitches on the screen and started corrupting SD cards. So I upgraded to the Canon 70D hoping it would solve all my problems. Though after using the camera for over a month I have now noticed there is a dead pixel on the cameras sensor. Not having much luck with my cameras at the moment! Hopefully I can get it replaced but if not they will need to send it in for repair. In which case I may not have a camera to film any videos. Though I will deal with that problem when it arises! In the mean time does anyone want to buy me a RED Epic?
Will try and write one of these update posts at least once a month! Thanks for checking out my blog!
Hey all! Just a quick post today. I have gone back to uni and as of writing this, have just completed setting up all my computer stuff. Now running duel monitors. Though not really able to use them until I get my new desktop. Looking at ordering a Mac Pro later this week, though of course I will be waiting at least a month for it to be delivered! This is the downside to building them in America! Anyway check out the picture below of my completed desk. Don’t worry about a lack of videos. 6 so far have been filmed, uploaded and are currently waiting to go live! Check out my last video here. A review of the Numark Orbit!
Check out this early Christmas present from Native Instruments. A few free downloads for you including some Traktor remix sets. Find out more info here!
So this is a serious post about YouTube. Over the past week I have had so many issues with uploading videos and I have decided not to upload any more content until the problem is fixed. It’s not a bug with uploading or anything like that. The issue is to do with the monetization and commercial rights of the audio and visual content in my videos.
Hey all! Thought I would just do an update post. This shiny new toy arrived the other day, the Numark Orbit. It’s a wireless DJ midi controller designed to give you more freedom and movement while you DJ. Numark are trying to stop DJs from hiding behind a laptop and get them to perform to the audience.
Pioneer are bringing out a very interesting product into the market. It’s the DDJ-SB. It’s a basic DJ midi controller with all the functions you would expect from something like the Numark Mixtrack Pro. Now the controller itself isn’t especially exciting, it’s a two channel controller and runs DJ Serato Intro. What is very interesting is the price. You can now buy a new PIONEER DJ setup for less than £200!
