Get .als from iTunes – Demo Movie

I break all my tracks into clips and drag them to the browser as an .als. I use iTunes to find which tracks I am going to play.

This resulted in an time consuming two step process to locate a song in iTunes and locate it again as an .als file in the Live browser.

My new iPhone remote gets around that by grabbing the .als file based on the selected mp3 in iTunes

I have this also set up on my APC40, so I can do it remote from the iPhone or direct from the APC40

It uses an iPhone app called Snap, which you can use to create remotes for anything. No Bomes or other Midi Translator involved.

Top Left & Right buttons switch between iTunes and Live
Arrow keys navigate iTunes
TAB – Cycles thru playlists and tracks in iTunes
Play plays the track in iTunes from beginning routed to headphones only
Skip30 button – jumps the track fwd 30secs in iTunes so you can preview the whole track easily
Bottom left – Gets the .als file for the mp3 and switches to Live
Pause – pauses/continues play in Live
Bottom Right – Pastes .als to iTunes

Happy customers…

I have been a producer for many years with the intent of becoming a DJ and performing my own tracks. After holding 2nd place in the Dance Charts and reaching #24 in Australia on Triple J Unearthed I knew I really needed to get my DJ chops up, and quick! Tim was a great instructor and was not only very in depth with the information that was supplied by DJ Warehouse within the course, but he also let us in on his own personal bests and worsts as well as handy tips to know within the DJ scene, this made me and the rest of the class feel very comfortable working with Tim, we learned a lot from him and the course and would be more happy to recommend it to anybody else wishing to learn the tricks of trade and advance towards a career within the DJ Scene.



Stay in the loop….
