As part of Point Blank’s new tutorial series, their instructor and DJ/producer Liam Jones aka Cera Alba (Hot Creations, MadTech, Moon Harbour) dives deeper into the new Traktor Kontrol S8. In part one, PB looked at the unit as a whole, how it works, loading tracks and how you can manually beat-match without jog wheels. Now in part two, Liam looks at the effects and performance aspects of the S8 including its unique looping and freeze functions.
If you want to learn more about DJing and the Traktor Kontrol S8, Point Blank has one – as well as all the latest industry-standard Pioneer equipment – in their London studio! They’ve had people like Nicole Moudaber and Monki (BBC Radio 1) take DJ courses with us, so you’d be in good hands. Find out more about PB’s diploma courses in London here, which include DJing modules.
