For all you electronic music lovers –  here comes one of the (what I call) back to the roots FX every DJ and House Producer was after in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. It is still a very popular Filter FX in music production and radio imaging, especially for creating beatmixes and unbelievable hook promos. My volunteer Andre and I put together a Video tutorial for you….It takes you less than 3 minutes of your time, but will change your skill set in an extraordinary way. Enjoy!

I know many of our readers are experienced in working with Pro Tools, but some guys like Mike Santos (Our Multi-Imaging Rockstar) always preferred audition and just made the switch to Pro Tools and are really new to it. When you’re working for years with another DAW, it’s hard to start with Pro Tools.

My buddy Ryan, our Country Imaging Director and nominee for the first “Radio summit industry award” takes care of the Pro Tools beginners and made a short and easy tutorial. This time, he shows you how to save and load plugIn presets. Never lose time by setting up your plugIns for every session, just save it as preset and it’s available everytime in seconds

What the hell is this guy doing and why is this posted on a radio imaging blog?

This is beatjuggling and is one of the king disciplines of turntablism. It’s the manipulation of two or more samples, loops, songs, etc… to create a new and unique composition using two or more turntables and one or more mixers. In short: It’s creating new beats by playing around with sounds you’ve already got.

So why am I posting this?

With my musical background as DJ, I’ ve always been impressed of this form of ‘Live Remixing’ and I wanted to bring this technique into Pro Tools.

So, today I’m gonna show you some beatjuggling made in Pro Tools, totally without turntables. A great technique, especially for Urban Imaging.

And by the way… it’s way easier to learn beatjuggling in Pro Tools than with real turntables and vinyl (believe me, it’s a freaking pain…)

Mattieu is a great producer from France. We emailed back and forth and after I heard he is using the Transfuser a lot I asked him to do a video tutorial for you – and here it is! Thanks to you Mattieu for sharing!

(@ Benztown we also use the Transfuser time by time and I recommed to check it out, becuase it is really intuitive and easy to use)

Also check out Mattieu’s production demos. Great and powerful stuff!
