As on March 9th, Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled a new line of MacBook, along with the highly anticipated Apple Watch. Described as the ‘thinnest’ and ‘lightest’ MacBook ever created, it weighs under 1 kg and is 13.1 mm thick. The Apple tribe all over world went crazy on this new offering from Apple, which has not been categorized under their existing MacBook Pro or MacBook Air series. Although this single USB post makes the whole body thinner, is equipped to handle higher wattage charging, supports upto 5 GBPS data transfer speed and features Display Port 1.2, but having one single USB will seriously hamper the operations. All earlier MacBooks have atleast 720 pixels front camera; and all contemporary laptops are equipped with either 720 pixels or higher front camera, making it almost the industry standard. Not only the resolution will be terribly poor, but it will also not have any high definition video chat or video broadcast. The only option for hardcore skype lovers and video chat enthusiasts is a new webcam, but it will spoil the party. Although the product description says that the new battery is “terraced battery design”, which has been layered in individual sheets to save space and to make it thinner and lighter, the performance will suffer. The new MacBook comes in two variants: 256 GB SSD for Rs 80,000 ($1299) and 512 GB SSD for Rs 99,000 ($1599). Despite poor camera, only 1 USB port, weak camera, there has been no compromise with the pricing.
Probably, Apple has put more emphasis on the design and look-feel aspect of the MacBook, along with the weight issue compared to functionality and features.
Apple is, ofcourse, known to disrupt the status-quo and to introduce something so revolutionary that it makes heads turn. There has been quite a bit of noise around Apple's decision to ditch FW400 in favor of FW800, and to move to DisplayPort (mini at that) instead of DVI.
Not that it matters when running to your LCD panel, but DisplayPort is designed to run for up to ~50 feet, compared to DVI's ~15 feet. Unlike what The Apple Blog claims (below), I did not find the graphics performance to be even nearly that great. Perhaps if you have only owned Apple laptops all your life, the graphics in the latest MacBook Pro would seem amazing, but in the grand scheme of things they are still mediocre. However, I was able to play Spore, a not so graphically-intense game, at full 1440x900 resolution with settings maxed - although I lowered some settings a bit to make it more "comfortable" to play. I suppose the thing to take away from this is that yes, you can actually "game" on the MacBook Pro now.. Enabling tap to click helped a lot during my transition period of getting used to the new trackpad, as it was fairly awkward having to push down the entire surface for every single click. On the other hand, I often work in a batcave at home so I am not bothered by any glare whatsoever.
Pictured above: The MacBook Pro as I'm using it right now - no glare to be seen, as the light is in front of me.
My first battery test was with the graphics set to use the 9600M GT and backlight brightness set to 50 percent. With the more energy efficient 9400M GPU enabled I was able to get 4 hours and 24 minutes of battery life.
Note: My definition of a battery life test is until OS X provides me with the reserve power warning, not until the MBP goes to sleep by itself. While I was unable to capture this in a picture, I have started noticing that the keys leave a mark on the screen - like the infamous problem the old Titanium PowerBooks had. Leave it to Apple to create a solid, high-performing product with one blatant Achilles' heel, the glossy display.

In typical HEX fashion, the Ashford Laptop Work Bag packs a lot of features into its slim and modern design. Now, we didn't just stop there, the real genius behind this bag is that you can easily convert the shoulder strap into backpack straps and wear this work bag as a backpack! While Pioneer changed the DJ game with the CDJs, they were somewhat late to the controller table.
Albeit a large nutshell, the Pioneer DDJ-SX is the first Serato DJ driven controller on the market.
Big — the DDJ-SX is a behemoth of a controller, which given the sheer volume of stuff crammed into it is quite understandable. Pioneer — while the WeGO and ERGO might eschew the classic Pioneer lines, the DDJ-SX is right back in familiar territory. Speaking of the buttons, I’m not sure who started with the brightly illuminated hard plastic buttons, but these are right off of the Numark NS6, as are some of the knobs, and the strip search too.
Layout wise, it adopts the now standard 2 players and a mixer format, with strict lines of demarcation between them.
Looking past the obvious loveliness of these jog wheels, I find myself less happy with these wheels than other Serato based units. I had no issues hooking up and running just about anything through the DDJ-SX, but be aware that switching between channel inputs gives some levels differences. Anyway, the DDJ-SX offers the usual 3 channel EQ (default +6dB but software switchable up to 12dB which I prefer) with kills plus a smaller gain knob.
There’s also my beloved fader start, which I feel is a very underrated creative option.
Summing up, I have concerns about fader quality, the over-complex gain staging and the token fader start.
There’s never much to talk about with pitch on controllers these days, and the DDJ-SX is no exception.
Given Traktor’s accepted dominance in the effects field, Serato had to do something to step up to the plate, thus snuggled up to iZotope to give their offering some credibility. Back in the day (ironically less than 10 years ago), looping was quite manual and depended on the accuracy of the DJ to hit the loop bang on beat. And most loop settings are the same across units, and deliver everything you need in the same standardised way. Slicer: Divide a section of music up into 8 beats — now press a button and that numerical equivalent will loop while you have the button pressed. Samples: A rudimentary one-shot hardware implementation leaving much tinkering on-screen, but with velocity sensitivity on the pads that also has an under the hood curve control. Given the sheer size of the DDJ-SX, you’d reasonably expect a heap of plugs, sockets and ports to be at your disposal.
4 decks, centre waveforms and the SP-6 sample bank.The detail comes down to what the screen offers.
The phrase MIDI controller is generally accepted to indicate that you can map any controller to any MIDI software and it’ll all just work. However, as clever as Viper is for making these, the maps are not as precise and finished as Serato DJ’s. Granted , it has a load of default functionality, but there’s a lot lurking under the shift key, as well as in utility mode too.
Now that the dust has settled and our WOOT hysteria has passed, is the Pioneer DDJ-SX the ultimate DJ controller? You need to pay attention to the details of this unit to see if they’re right for you, but the Pioneer DDJ-SX is the most fully featured DJ controller on the market right now. Thats not factoring any economics into the argument – electronics companies all over the world adopt similar tactics.
Apple decided not to place any fancy name with their new MacBook offering, and simply named it the New MacBook. Presented in Gold color, the new MacBook has no fan, and along with that, there are several features which have been liked, hated and strongly debated across the technological hemisphere. Equipped with an already outdated Intel X25-M SSD (SanDisk is working on something "100 times" faster) I put in myself, this is easily the best computer I have owned to date - despite a few issues I have found. It cost me 30 for the Mini-DP to DVI adapter, and it'll cost 100 for the Mini-DP to Dual-Link DVI adapter if you have a 30-inch display requiring a dual-link connection. From there, only 1 screw secures the hard drive, with 4 torx screws used as pegs to keep the drive suspended in a rubber-padded drive cage of sorts. Unlike the old MacBook Pro batteries, the new battery does not contain the battery level meter anymore.


The popular games I tested were able to run with settings at their most detailed, at full resolution, with no noticeable problems. For example, while playing Call of Duty 4 I was able to play at 1440x900 but with no AF, no AA and the other settings set to medium. If you use it as you would the previous trackpad, with your thumb doing the clicking at the bottom portion of the trackpad, you won't have much of an issue using it. The trackpad supports one finger right click as well, for either the bottom left or bottom right.
I have tried adopting the four finger gestures into my workflow but using active screen corners for things like Expose seems easier to me.
In the typical class room, with overhead fluorescent lighting, the new MacBook Pro is fairly hard to use. That and to be honest, my MacBook Pro is connected to my 24-inch external display about 75 percent of the time. It really just depends on how your workspace lighting is setup, and if you can't control that, then you will have a big issue with the glare. I did basic Wi-Fi-enabled productivity tasks like taking notes in Google Docs and browsing the web.
While the keyboard is in fact recessed into the unibody frame, I can see that the keys stick out above the recess ever so slightly. Aside from several nitpicks mentioned within this article and the ridiculously glossy display, I have no problems with this notebook whatsoever.
Their first controllers, the DDJ-S1 and T1 (Serato ITCH and Traktor respectively), weren’t the expected game changers that everyone had hoped. It was clearly  a leap over anything else in the market — perhaps not mechanically but with the addition of Serato DJ, the DDJ-SX was (and at the time of writing still is) the most complete and advanced DJ controller in the market. It has generous scoops of all that is desirable in the digital DJ age, but is essentially a 4 channel controller with analog inputs, complete with effects, loops, cues etc all the usual stuff you’ve come to expect from high-end controllers. But while this size might allow just enough room for all the controls, you can be sure that you’re going to need a solid case if you travel with it. It is at times a tad Numarkish, but details like the round transport buttons and illuminated centre display give it that familiar feel.
I’m greeted with such an array of features that I just want to dig in and form a valid opinion of the whole thing.
In fact the more I look at this, the influence is clear, but the Pioneer DNA is still strong. When controllers first came out, manufacturers tried to get clever with layouts, but soon realised that the standard format worked and had already been tried and tested for decades, even down to the basic principle of gluing a pair of media players to the outside of the mixer. There has to be a point at which an all in one struggles to remain portable, but still has everything you need. They have clearly spent some time looking at what they have on the CDJs as well as their other offerings and come up with something that brings in a bit of everything, but thankfully not the roller skate mechanism of CDJs. Pioneer usually have an illuminated strip at the edge of the wheel, but this time have added a CDJ-like centre display to show the rotation and cue point of the playing track. Setting the DJ world on fire when it first appeared, slip allows you to manipulate the jog wheel while keeping hold of it, leaving the original audio playing underneath ready to pick up as soon as you let go of the jog wheel. Even after messing with the sensitivity at length, I still can’t get release accuracy just right, either for scratching and releasing, juggling or patting the jog wheel. A Serato DJ channel was considerably louder than the equivalent Serato Scratch Live channel. The one comment I will make for clarification is that the sample volume is for all samples at once, and is independent of EQ and effects. This goes for the track loading, effects and all the down the front face to the channel selectors too. The smoother crossfader has a hardware curve control giving a decent sharp cut in of 2mm, and the line faders getting a software curve, but no reverse control. On the DDX-SX, it lacks the creative possibilities of Numark units as it’s a shift feature, and on the line faders only. But otherwise the mixer section has an exemplary layout, and using it is an absolute breeze. Coming to the rescue is MIDI takeover via a couple of tiny Red LEDs at the end of the faders. Those days are long gone, and all software is quite capable of accurately analysing the BPM and now add a beat grid to the track.
Even entry level units like the Numark Mixtrack Pro II have them now, and thus narrow the gap between low and high-end even more. Once engaged, you’ll be able to use the jog wheel, pad functions, transport, as well as all the other track based functions to control 2 tracks with just one set of controls. I thought about a separate record out, but Serato DJ records internally, and you can always hang some device from the RCA  master out too. 4 decks at full detail leaves little room for anything else.For me, the strength of any DJ software is how transparent it is in use.
For a long time, Serato were quite fixed in their layouts, but they’ve clearly been listening to their huge user base. Obviously, you need the screen for the library, waveforms and numerical readouts, and in this respect Serato DJ gives you many options.
But the technological demands and commercial considerations of businesses means that this principle is becoming less true with each controller that comes out. And using other software removes the real plug-and-play-it-just-works nature of Serato based products.
The sheer wealth of controls goes way beyond what most controllers offer, and overall you’re guaranteed to knock out killer sets, once you learned how to use it. If you absolutely crave the very latest of everything ever and must be seen with the newest shiny on the planet, then the answer is yes. I don’t buy into the 4 channel hype, thus find the Vestax VCI-380 a much better proposition, even with ITCH. It has the fullest feature set of any controller right now, and does them all with aplomb, provided you want a Serato DJ controller. Shipping from the Far East is expensive, and when it hits Europe, there are all manner of local duties to pay, as well as exchange rates too. What’s the point of having a mixer that works without a computer if the decks don’t do anything? If there were such a thing as a CDJ-2000 with no CD player and an internal hard drive I’d buy it. They're trying to push the industry into the right direction by making bold moves to force users to adopt the latest tech. The 9600M GT is used for better performance with graphics-intensive applications and games (OS X Snow Leopard will actually be able to use GPUs to take the load off the CPU for some tasks) while the 9400M can be used for better battery life. Even then that configuration got around 30FPS most of the time and a choppy ~15FPS when there was lots of action going on.
This time it is actually the iPhone-like glass display and bezel cover that is doing the reflecting.
I want to save battery power and keep the backlight low but with a ridiculous amount of glare I don't really have much of a choice but to max the backlight brightness.
Aside from the glare, the display definitely stands out in the crowd and is slick, very bright yet still dishes out vivid albeit not necessarily accurate colors.
Anything over 4 hours of battery life is remarkable to me so I'm very happy with this for such as large laptop.

So if Pioneer was to change the game again, it would have to be with something rather more befitting their premium status. But having played with it for a while and letting the initial hoopla and dust settle, is it still the ultimate controller? But it also has the new stuff (multi-function pads) as well some new tricks like dual deck mode. The Pioneer DDJ-SX is a nice blend of both — a plastic chassis and trim topped off with a brushed metal upper (hence my Numark comment above). The DDJ-SX is one of those rarer controllers where the symmetry has been kicked to the kerb in favour of having the same layout as a traditional setup. These are touch sensitive wheels, each with their own sensitivity control on the front of the unit.


In practice, this works pretty well, but does take up more of the platter than I’d like.
It must also be noted that something weird is happening with levels in general in Serato DJ. I found the filter to be somewhat sensitive and aggressive over a small amount of turn though. You do get more on-screen controls though, which via Serato DJ’s secondary controller mappings you can control separately.
Serato DJ offers 8,16 and 50% pitch ranges, a statistic that I find is becoming less important these sync enabled days. The basic configuration is that there are 2 effects units, assignable to each channel on the hardware, and to master via software.
This 2 x 4 pad arrangement is becoming a regular fixture on Serato based units, but each unit has its own implementation depending on what each manufacturer is willing to pay for, and what Serato are willing to let them have. The more creative amongst you will probably come up with some smart routines with this functionality.
There’s a long thread on the Serato forum, which at times feels like users are calling for heads to roll. As an old school DJ, my focus was always on my equipment, apart from when selecting the next piece of vinyl. But what I do want from my setup is total plug and play, which Serato DJ delivers as standard.
You can now decide on 2 or 4 deck display — some users, in particular NS6 owners only use 2 out of the 4 decks and had their small screens taken up with a bunch of guff they didn’t need. The deck displays give you all the numerical feedback you require, as do the assorted strips i.e. Taking the DDJ-SX as evidence of this, it is promoted entirely as a Serato DJ controller, leaving the other software in the small print. And as a side effect of using Traktor, the centre lights no longer rotate when used with Serato DJ.
It’s intuitive enough that you can simply dive in and start playing, and still make nice music. Manuals are of course for the weak-minded, but I guarantee that you won’t know all there is to know unless you take an hour out to at least skim the pages.
It is without doubt an epic controller, and given the Pioneer logo silkscreened onto it, is actually likely to be seen in clubs. But that doesn’t stop the DDJ-SX from being the most complete 4 channel controller on the market. The platter sensitivity for example puts me off as my technique is more hands-on tricks than long mixes. First off, FW800 is backwards compatible with FW400 - all you need is an adapter, if you really still use FW400 devices. While this is nice, I can imagine it is a slight drawback for people that travel with 2 or 3 batteries, as I did with my last MacBook Pro. Unfortunately you have to log out to switch between GPUs, which is not the case with using Hybrid SLI in Windows.
You can definitely get a gaming session in, but you won't be gawking at the best graphics, that's for sure. It might just be my MBP, or it might be how I stick the laptop in my messenger bag everyday along with another notebook. And after a couple of small but nonetheless cool controllers, Pioneer and Serato got together to bring forth the first controller made specifically for  Serato DJ — the Pioneer DDJ-SX. The rest is a wide and varied range of hard plastic and rubberised controls with the trademark metal transport buttons.
I guess that for the more turntablist amongst you, the reduced wheel touch area might prove to be an issue.
Indeed, it’s perfectly possible to run your DVS of choice (with necessary audio interface of course) through the Pioneer DDJ-SX have the best of both worlds.
The meters shown on-screen appear to be pre-fader and pre-EQ, and on the DDJ-SX are pre-fader, pre-FX but post-EQ.
It’s fine for casual use, but sticklers might want to use the effects high pass and low pass. The crossfader is easily replaceable, but doesn’t have the space for any favour of full-sized Innofader. On a related note, there’s no Pitch bend buttons, but this is controlled via the edge of the jog wheel anyway. But I doubt anyone is going to add 2 more pitch faders, especially in the days of the aforementioned sync.
The reality is that Pioneer are working on it and have issued one firmware update, but expect more improvement to come. If I find myself focussed on my laptop screen more than I am my gear, then I consider the overall experience to be less fulfilling than it should.
Having a standard library already set up for reviews, the real strength is how well I can start to use that library. You can also show a staggering amount of detail around the decks, or just focus on the library. No official support is offered for any other software, other than a utility mode which allows it to be used with the likes of Traktor.
Probably a small bug, but I found using software other than Serato DJ to be a less than fulfilling compromise. I do find that to get the very best from the DDJ-SX, you need to spend time organising and analysing your library, as well as getting to know everything the DDJ-SX can do. Examples of what can be changed in utility mode include enabling 3rd party MIDI apps like Traktor, changing the centre display and sample velocity sensitivity. While I learned to work around these shortcomings, they are still frustrating given the high-end nature of the unit. I soon adapt to any changes, but those who switch between SSL, ITCH and Serato DJ may come across a few bumps in the road. However, the quickest fix is to use a 20db attenuator, that can be grabbed for just a few quid. And because the Serato library is core across all their software, I had zero messing around to do to start playing. I don’t know the technical aspects of this, but Viper has posted VDJ and Traktor maps over at DJTT, which do at least make those other applications available. My ongoing and controversial advice — pick a software package and buy a controller made for it, because 3rd party mapping with any certainty of quality isn’t guaranteed. Having played with just about every high end controller on the market at length, it’s the detail that matters to me. But to stand there with a library full of pre-analysed, gridded, hot-cued and looped tracks, the Pioneer DDJ-SX is most likely going to give you the fullest controller experience on the market. So from now, while you will go away from Mac and Mac screen goes sleep then you don’t need to enter log-in passcode to unlock it, even though use Apple Watch to make it unlock. This was what drew me to Serato ITCH when it first came out, and Serato DJ does little to break that either. Yes, the DDJ-SX is stuffed to the gills with goodies, but there are personal preferences that stop me from loving it like a first-born. But there should be enough configuration options to deliver the info on screen the way you want it. Genuine leather zipper pulls, and custom burgundy logo lining round out the feature set on this convertible bag. To get more help to turn on Tow factor authentication get steps here.Apple Watch must be on your wrist. Here you have a new option like – “Allow your Apple Watch to Unlock you Mac”Advertisement Step 4. Now close your Mac’s lid  and then open up the lid again at that time Mac screen shows unlocking Mac with Apple Watch.
