    Default How about we compile a TechTools Dictionary?!

    I was thinking the other day, that there might be some expressions, that to people that are new on this forum or around the whole controllerism / digital djing, would be totally alien and without meaning (or LITTLE meaning). (stuff like bomes, midi, controllerism...) the list will prolly be long.

    Once we feel that we are finished, we could make it a nice and nifty PDF or something

    I wont start out just yet, cause I have no time, Just needed to get the idea out of the system before I forget (happens a lot that I have ideas that I forget haha)...

    Anyways, what do ya'll think? Bento, up for a short description of BoMeS!? I mean, we could also include names of controllers and stuff... like a proper little manual/dictionary!

    That's not a bad idea.

    Things like:

    MIDI Yoke/MIDI Ox/LoopBe/etc.
    Bomes
    Hotcues/Loops
    MIDI
    14-Bit MIDI
    VCI-100/300/600
    VCM-100/300/600
    Virtual Audio Cables
    Cue Juggling
    Mashup Artist
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    You mean... a real WIKI? heh

    We could do that instead of creating an FAQ. That could be very interesting.

    FAQ is boring. A little manual is way better Downloadable as PDF of course. FAQ's are annoying imo, better to have a searchable kind of dictionary... Not to hard to program either

    I'll bring it up to my moderator buddies. You know them... they're all stuck in the past, wanting to do things the same way as everyone else, not wanting to take any risks or do anything unique. Ugh, it's like they want it to still be 2006.

    Great idea Nemo. Im still a Newb to the digital dj world though Ive learned a lot from this site as well as doing research all over the net over the last couple of months. I know I would have been very happy to come across a compiled list of terms and definitions/descriptions all assembled nicely in one place. Something like a wiki that can be changed and updated would be excellent.
