The Traktor Kontrol S4 in Action

The Traktor Kontrol S4 is retardedly cool. Not only is it perfect for parties with friends and messing around but think about what you could do with this thing if you started recording your own samples! You should really watch this video and see how easy it is to do some sick ass audio mixing live with this one interface..and it looks madd fun! Personally, I’m waiting until my local Guitar Center has a show model for me to play with before I think about getting one. For $1,000 bucks, it has potential to be a great investment.

Huge List of Websites with Free Samples and Loops

Courtesy of MusicBootCamp.com

The following links will open doors to a wealth of loops, drum hits, acoustic, electric and just plain weird audio samples. Most are available in WAV format, but many are made available as MP3s and other formats. We only include sites that contain drum shots, kits or instruments, whether or not they contain loops. With so many loop sites already in existence, we choose to emphasize playable instruments and drums.

Enjoy. Most or all of these sites offer free samples or entire libraries for free download.

This would be super addicting..someone needs to make an online version of this!!

From the Reactablesite:

We created Reactable Systems with the vision to redefine the way we interact with computers. Using the knowledge we gained through the Reactable musical instrument we are developing intuitive products focused on the promotion of creativity and the mediation of culture. In order to achieve this we are applying the latest technologies in human computer interaction, music technology, graphics and computer vision.

Reactable Systems is a spin-off company of the Pompeu Fabra Universityand is collaborating with its Music Technology Group, one of the worlds largest research labs in music technology.

Our first product is the Reactable, a novel musical instrument that has gained international reputation and received several worldwide awards. Based on the successful concept of the Reactable we are working on new applications enhancing the technology and expanding its applications.
