Hi Berlin Ping Pong DJs,
I hope you are all doing fine in those crazy times. As we use the current period to mostly stay at home, we have time to practise. So to keep our Berlin DJ Ping Pong community alive I thought, let’s do a workshop :-). At this online event at Twitch we go through the mysteries of sequencers, analog and digital synths. We will discuss the right setup for your existing DJ gear and what is the best way to to integrate those very interesting machines in your live setup including connectivity, midi issues, syncing and sequencer modes.
We start with a Korg Volca Keys polyphonic analogue loop synth and a Volca FM using digital FM synthesis. Both machines will be triggered by a Korg SQ 1 pattern sequencer. A Roland TR8s drum machine will provide us with some straight beats.
Looking forward to see you online at the event.
