Pioneer Rekordbox Free Download: Its a FREEWARE now! (well soon-ish!)

Pioneer has recently announced that their REKORDBOX Software is going to be a freeware! And guess what, you can download the new version of the program right NOW - HERE (and then go to the download page)

Well compared to Traktor Scratch Rekordbox pales in comparison - but now that its a freeware who can really complain? This means theres no excuse for DJs not being able to prepare tracks at home on the Rekordbox software, export them into a USB Stick and then carry it to the clubs that have the CDJ900/2000s - Pioneer is aiming to establish the CDJ900/2000 as club standards? Perhaps...

The Windows 7 experiment

been busy with work/study/family etc

So i decided to install windows 7 on my backup notebook as a little experiment...

Spec: Intel dual core 2.16ghz, 4gb ram, 250 gb hard drive

Result: WOW! I thought vista was awful but Windows 7 is really a lot faster! I still think macbooks are the way to go but to think that for the same price as a lowly macbook white you could get an intel i5 2.53ghz with 4GB ram and 500gb hd - its pretty tempting!

(with wifi turned off) - traktor runs pretty smoothly on windows 7 as well! So is Windows 7 the way to go? We shall wait and see :)
