    Smile How does this DJ-Setup work exactly ?

    Hello,

    Iím wondering if anyone can help me out here with the understanding of the live set up in this release concert of French DJ Myd:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tc1w9IEKHE

    At 8:40 or 15:10 you can see what I mean!

    So my question is:

    How does this DJ set up work exactly ?

    I get that the musicians are singing, playing guitar and synthesizer through a filter and an effect board - but whatís up with the iPad kind-of-thing he has in the middle ? Is he playing loops in a MIDI program or what ? He seems to be triggering the Moog Synth-Module with some MIDI files too ? And his Roland-Synth is just played live of course.

    I would love to set up something like this, - electronic drums like a DJ, but being able to switch the patterns and build them upon each other - and then playing real instruments over it, and sing and so on.

    Although Iím a decent piano player and played live a lot with live-bands I really donít get how this works - maybe you can help me with programs I could use, and what I need for syncing all of it, interface etc.

    Thank you so much and have a nice day!

    Christian

    Its not a DJ setup, its a "live" setup (although probably what you're hearing isn't live, its just for the tv show).

    He's showing using synths and effects boxes, instruments and a microphone linked up to a mixer (not a DJ mixer) to control the levels. But I'm guessing they wouldn't risk it all live on TV :- really it is just playing a pre-recorded track. The iPad thing is just a midi controller for firing loops or samples from a computer or midi device.

    Here's something live to compare:

    And here is someone explaining a live setup:
