Services and Automation

So after discovering this awesome Mac Podcast,  Mac Power Users, I’ve started dabbling with Mac’s Automator to create some nice services and applications.  One App that I finally got to work was a workflow that opens up a dmg saved onto my computer then transfers downloaded torrent files and subsequently closes the open dmg.

HDJ-2000 Awesomeness

What can I say but WOW! These headphones are amazing, I had the chance to head into Store DJ today and have a listen and the sound was pristine, brilliant highs and heart pumping lows. The isolation is another key point, you can barely hear youself talk when wearing these. The construction is sturdy and they are as light as the Sony MDR-V6’s that I currently own (a big selling point). The $400+ price tag is worth it and I can’t wait to buy these.Amazing

Brilliant MashUp

I found this song a couple of days ago when trawling through Hype Machine.  Its a MashUp of Party and Bullshit from Notorious BIG and Party in the USA by Miley, I know, a bit weird but listen to the song before you judge it.  Check it out here.

Etymotic's Custom Earplugs

So on Thursday I received the wonderful news that my custom earplugs were ready to be picked up.  These little babies drop the outside noise level by 25dB (but can come in 9dB, and 15dB versions) so that at the end of the night after a long DJ set my ears won’t be ringing.  These also help with annoying people who decide to shout right into my ears.  

CDJ2000 & CDJ900

So released a mere 2 hours ago are the new CDJ2000 and CDJ900.  They should be released around nov/dec and at a small price of US$2150 for the 2000 and US$1600 for the 900.  I can’t wait till they are released and have a play with them.  I better save up some money now.  My only gripe with these two players is that they are only USB1… Why the hell Pioneer would only use USB1 in professional DJing equipment is beyond me but i can’t really do anything about that. :(
