Also, the LAB will now have guest writers (Lab Instructors), filling you in on the latest and greatest info mania out there-on all things related! Yeayeahhh stay tuned.

A MPC Joint

Back in the day (maybe less than 10 years ago), you probably wouldnt find yourself using a nice big display screen and free software programs (like fruity loops/Garage Band). In the early 90's, the MPC was a major break through in the hip hop music production world. Even with the technology of using midi controllers and digital sequencers today-the youtube above is a clear example and display in why some producers may never desire to switch to 'whats in'. Props to Cabide DJ

InnoFader Non-Contact Fader

"After studying the habits and requirements of today's DJs, Audio Innovate has developed a next generation cross fader that is designed to take fader standards to whole new level"(TTL)

Have fun with your album covers

(thanks DJ Corner!)
