    Default Girl Talk Gives a Tour of His Computer

    Apologies if this has been posted already. I searched but didn't find:

    It's funny because he's the perfect candidate for one or more midi controllers but instead he's mastered pointing-and-clicking through complex sets of loops. His live performance involves AudioMulch and he edit loops in Adobe Audition. I just couldn't handle mixing with little check boxes.

    Props to him for still using Windows XP, but you could do the same stuff with Ableton, and have a lot more fun with it and have it be less of a headache.

    Seems like he could do it more easily with Ableton Live and a Novation Launchpad or something. Although I guess once you're used to a certain workflow, it's hard to change everything.

    I was thinking the same thing. Using a midi controller would be probably more exciting to watch from the audience aswell.

    yeah i didnt think djing in a "loop" based platform (DAW's like Ableton and the like) could be any more confusing than Ableton is.

    guess i was wrong. lol

    but when he's on stage he's a sweaty, intense
    I used to get like that in the office if I tried using XP for anything productive too !

    It has a little lag
    Honetly I thought I'd pissed myself !!

    Get him a decent soundcard & APC40 & Someone give that man an Ableton sponsorship ...

    The poor bloke, that interface really REALLY looks complicated for the sake of being complicated !
