Abelton 8 Melbourne launch this Thursday 28th of May at Miss Libertines

Abelton is running an Australian tour to promote the launch of Abelton 8.  Have had a bit of a play around with it and looks pretty good though I haven't really used Abelton enough to really know.

I have been trying to work out the best way of going digital with my music for a couple of years now and so far I have been pretty set on serato.  I've tried CD jays for a couple of years but I really find it hard to get the same feeling as playing vinyl.

A lot of people are starting to use Abelton now to DJ with as well as production.  While I have heard a few people criticise this as taking the skill of beat matching out of it as well as being boring to watch someone behind a computer it does open up a whole new world of creative possibilities.

As far as getting Abelton DJs out from behind there laptops there are heaps of new controllers around now such as the vestax VCM600.

Check out this demo wit NZs Tom Cosm.  Looks like it would be a lot of fun. 

Tom Cosm and other Abelton edorsed artist will be doing demos at the launch on Thursday head down and check it out to see how people are using Abelton as a DJ platform.
