    Default Please help me understand Chris Liebingīs digital setup

    Guys,

    Could you help me understand how does this setup works... I can see that he is running Traktor 3 with the Xone4d. And also another computer for effects using ableton... Is this correct? Plus what else is he doing in the second computer?

    It looks really cool to be playing with 2 laptops but insnīt this a double risk also?

    I assume that he is doing this so he can use cooler effects and maybe samples without overloading the laptop running Traktor. But is this really necessary?

    Here are the links for a couple of videos:

    Thanks

    It indeed is one laptop with ableton with one big ass VST that covers most of the screen.
    He controls this with the UC33e controller by Evolution.

    And I have to correct you on the 4d item.
    He controls the 4 decks on Traktor with a Xone:1d controller.
    Both sources are routed and than put through the Xone:92 mixer.

    He uses hardware wiring/routing instead of software wiring.
    Software wiring/routing ofcourse is described on the blog of DJTechtools.

    Thanks for sharing these vids by the way. Awesome to take a look at how some guys handle their stuff!


    [edit]In the second vid, he is using 2 Xone:1d controllers on a Xone:92 mixer.

    And as described later on a wireless mod for the UC33e? :eek:

    Hey Tekki

    Thanks for your fast reply. I will look into the software and hardware wiring concept... is kind of new for me.
    Gald you enjoy the vids, I keep watching this guys play. I really enjoy watching what digital Djs are doing, specially in the German scene. I think that Chris Liebing together with Hawtin are the best digital Djs playing today for this music style.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge

    He also has some loops in Ableton, but I cannot say anything else about that.

    Yeah the video quality isnt anything to rave on about, but he did put an alright set together.
