Asian Hawk just destroyed a new set over at DJcityTV where he fuses a bit of R&B live performance with turntablism. The results are so DOPE. Great mic skills, great composition skills, and great turntable wizardry allows him to pull off a nice routine that is different than the others.
The MASCHINE and TRAKTOR workflows can now easily sync together with the use of the Ableton Link software that allows many different platforms to work in harmony without the use of an additional MIDI clock style setup. The MASCHINE 2.5.5 update is out now on Native Access, and TRAKTOR PRO 2.11 update is out now on the Service Center which will allow the Ableton Link to communicate with the two.

Just yesterday Native Instruments introduced the new 2.11 update to Traktor Pro software that enables Ableton Link so that all software can sync together, a new built in sequencer for adding to the mix, and they’ve also added Pioneer DJM-900NSX2 and CDJ-2000NXS2 hardware integration to the mix as well. This is a huge update for Traktor users. Check out the full explanation videos and more inside.
The Invisibl Skratch Piklz is definitely my favorite turntablist DJ team of all time.

It’s already been one year since Native Instruments has shown us where they see the market headed. STEMS is their baby and they have come out in full support of it. And with the one year anniversary of STEMS, they are bringing you the opportunity of saving on two of the current products that support this format until May 31. The S5 and the D2 are each going to save you up to $200 dollars. That is a lot of time to think and make a decision if this right for you. Usually NI does one month sales but you are getting two months, so no rush.
The new version of Traktor is now available. The new Traktor 2.10.2 update gives users a few bug-fixes to make the whole Traktor experience smoother than ever before. We’ve had reports of many crashes since the STEMS format was released and hopefully these housekeeping items help give DJ’s a peace of mind that their software will keep up with the DJ’s demands. Check out the details after the jump.
Stems update, active. That was just an attempt at telling you that Native instruments has a new Traktor update. And this time its a pretty cool update.

Yes, now you can see stem tracks and the stems on the Traktor Software with the latest update.
