Time for our weekly recap, after the craziness that was NAMM 2017. My apologies for not posting a weekly recap last week, but as you might imagine, keeping things running is not always easy considering DjTechZone is mostly a 1 person (me!) operation…

Mixvibes to launch video mixing app!

We have ignored Mixvibes Remixlive application until now, sorry about that Mixvibes. But I might look into it pretty soon, as Mixvibes dropped a teaser video earlier today showing off a new app that allows video clip remixing. Check out the clip below:

According to hypebot, cassettes might be going in the same direction as the sales have gone up an amazing 74% in 2016 compared to 2015.

Not something you would DJ with, but Sennheiser’s 3D surround headset is a rather cool gadget.

The Ambeo Smart Surround are in the first place a pair of earbuds. But in addition to playing your tunes, they can also record 3D audio, thanks to two build in microphones that accurately record your environment.

So imagine you are at a music concert: you can record the live sound and the audience reaction around you in 3D, so when you play back the recording you will have the full immersive experience! That is kind of cool, isn’t it?
