'DJ Tips Series' with DJ Lethal Skillz is another new initiative that I'm kicking off in support to our Steemit community DJ's. An open space in our Steemit community were DJ's can Synergize, Share Knowledge and Support each other.
I am a big fan and user of Serato products, I have been using their hardware and Software since Serato entered the market back in 1998. Throughout the years using Serato from it's early versions and being a test user in the Middle East i have accumulated quiet a lot of experience on how a DJ can push their performance to a higher level using these Hardware and Software tools.
In this first episode I am going to be sharing the beauty and power of the "Serato Sampler" within 'Serato DJ' Software and at the end of this post provide you with FREE goodies to spice up your live DJ Sets or use them for Finger Drumming or Production.
Lots of DJ's nowadays use the Serato DJ Sampler (formally called SP6 in Serato Scratch Live) within 'Serato DJ' software to trigger DJ sound Fx during their live DJ Sets (like the Horns, Rises, Drops, Police horns and Such ...) but actually the Serato Sampler can be used beyond just triggering samples during your mix.
You can use Serato DJ Sampler to take your performance to the next level by spicing up your mixes and showcase performance by doing finger drumming, or remixing a song live during your DJ sets.
To Do So, First you need to enable the Serato Sampler Feature so it unlocks the interface that you can later setup accordingly to your preference as per the below screenshot.
Once enabled it will open a new section in your main Serato DJ screen like this:
Next you will need to configure it. Here's a video by the official Serato website below demonstrating the basics on how to set your Cue Points & Loops.
Serato DJ can definitely take your DJ performance to the next level and make you stand out from the other DJ's if you learn and master all it's features, i will be uncovering more features and topics about it and beyond.
Here's another video by a great DJ and Instructor DJ Trayze showcasing the power of Serato DJ, in here he used the Reloop NEON with Serato DJ but the same techniques can be applied to any controller of your choice as long as it's compatible with Serato DJ.
