Sounds promising. While I'm usually quick to jump on a major upgrade/change/entirely new feature, this is one I'll be waiting on.

Great topic. First and foremost I like your initial point about being open and honest. This is a must, and I'd add CLEAR. I've put together events, been the "head" DJ, and been a DJ on staff... and I work differently in all the different roles, work differently depending on the event... and even WHO...

When people talk about things in terms of "the length of a football field" they general mean the 100 yards (91.44 m) between the end zones. By comparision a real foo...

I actually didn't touch on music trends on purpose, to keep my post as applicable to most people as possible. Something on music trends over the years would be interesting... but as Trev mentioned each scene sees different trends. Perhaps the trends at big national events could be focused on.

The Evolution of Working as a Swing DJ

Today I recalled how procuring and playing Swing music has changed over the years. It was a fun look back for me on how far we've come in so little time. I can't imagine having to start over... if 1998 was when I had to start over. http://www.jivejunction.com/?p=562 Thought some folks here would app...

Re: BPM tools for Mac

What is everyone using to measure BPMs for Macs these days? I've been using iTunes-BPM successfully for years - It's a simple tap window that floats above iTunes and enters the result into the BPM data field. Unfortunately it was written for PPC Macs, and my new Intel machine wants to install Roset...
