Now this is cool. A Soundcloud DJ player from Musikame. Not explored it properly yet but looks like could be fun.
Been around since July but I think still in the beta stage, it’s esentially lets you “DJ” tracks from your browser (flash needed).
Funcitonality includes a looper, a pitch slider and an FX pad. You cue up tracks from a central browser, which displays the waveform. It crossfades between tracks automatically, though you can play with this too. Other funcitonality includes a looper, a pitch slider and an FX pad.
My few attempts have so been entertaining, though I end up distorting the tracks so much they sound pretty far removed from the original. I think this might be my Christmas project…
Below is a really lovely commentary from @tombrookspolloc on his favourite podcasts of the year, featuring some absolute belters. This is lifted direct as I think he writes it really nicely - do check out his blog here: http://tombrookspollock.wordpress.com
It’s a Twitter vs. Facebook straight stat fight.
In the battle of brands it looks like Twitter would get to the top of the Travelator first 67% of people saying they would purchase a specific brand they follow, vs. only 51% of Facebook users. Potenitally because the largest group of Twitter users are slightly older than FB users and so have more expendable income? Though total income levels are higher in total for Facebook users. Is brand engagement deeper on Twitter than Facebook? I’d like to know some more about this given the immense amount of investment brands are spending on social media without an always obvious return.
I’m tempted to end this post with some kind of terrible “another one bites the dust” reference, but I shall refrain. Gladiators out.
