POOL Video

POOL Video
It's time.

Once upon a time spinning music video was the sport of kings, or, at least, cost a king's ransom. The gear of yesteryear wasn't cheap: early adopters paid as much as $5k for a 500-lumen projector and a C-note for a video laser disc, circa 2000; not coincidentally the year we began offering budget-friendly DVD.

That was then.

Today the cost of video gear has fallen off a cliff, demand is soaring (hello: YouTube?), and the cutting-edge convenience and new-fashioned savings POOL Video provides is putting music video – and the extra earnings it brings – well within reach of Everyman.

These days your small change can make
for a big change in your spare change

POOL Video allows you to conveniently download just the genre you need, or to grab a well-chosen bundle of genres that will carry you through any gig (and open the door to new ones) – all at prices that won't give you retro-shock, all at the speed of the Internet.

Cue the highlight reel:

  • Genres include Top 40, Urban, Club (Electronic), Rock, Country and Latin

  • Exclusive Clean Edits & Intro Edits (the hottest new singles with extended intros and outros)

  • DRM-free MPEG4 encoded at H.264 (BlueRay, Hi-Def TV)

  • Single Genres, Bundled Genres and Deluxe packages available

  • All files tagged to include title, artist, BPM, label, genre, artwork and more

  • Includes download manager software app and one-on-one tech support

  • Monthly billing options available

POOL Video prices start for as little as $100.00 per genre (3 months of monthly service) and provide you with 40-45 videos per month. Best buy: We can deliver you 12 full months of music video service for as little as $300.00 per genre.

If you'd like to stretch your dollar even further we also offers a bundled multi-genre selection (Express Video) that brings you WEEKLY delivery of the newest top 40, urban, rock, country, dance, and Intro Edits (some 25 videos per week) for as little as $89.00 per month, billed monthly.

It's reader reward time: If you made it this far you deserve a SPECIAL OFFER...

Pioneer DDJ-ERGO

The Pioneer DDJ-ERGO Controller
Ergo + nomics = one comfy purchase

It's no big secret that we're big Pioneer fans here. It's also no secret that Pioneer quality and reliability can tip the scales when it comes to price point, which is why far too many DJs pass, often reluctantly, on becoming proud Pioneer owners.

That all may be changing with Pioneer's newest entry, the DDJ-ERGO Controller...

True to its name, the ERGO puts ergonomics at the forefront of its operation and design; much like Pioneer's S1 and T1 controllers, it doesn't stray far from the consumer-friendly design of the legendary CDJ. Unlike it's more costly Pioneer predecessors, the ERGO comes in at a price as comfy as its name implies, in a featherweight package you can tuck under one arm.

The Goods

  • The DDJ-ERGO comes packaged with Atomix Productions' Virtual DJ Limited Edition with a proprietary Pioneer GUI and a broad range of performance functions available straight from the controller.
  • Boasts a complete array of dedicated knobs and buttons for all your fave functions, including four-deck mixing, filters, sample decks and loop recording – without hitting the shift button.
  • MIDI output makes the DDJ-ERGO compatible with the bulk of other DJ software apps out there; Traktor users can apply the included TSI settings file to control their software of choice.
  • NEW! Pulse Control uses light to give a visual representation of pitch, beat, effects, and which decks are in use.  Built-in LEDs enhance your mixing precision and add a hi-tech bling best seen to be believed.

Will the DDJ-ERGO be the breakout mobile DJ controller of the year? We're comfortable saying yes.

MSRP $699.99. Street: $599.00

DJ Codes

DJ Codes
Guzzlin' 2012

Brooklyn NY-based beatmaker DJ Codes' (aka Cody Murray) blends here and there with just the right amount of now and then to create a signature blend of golden-era hip-hop and house that arrives without compromise and without peer.
Codes ArtworkTapping into his background as turntablist, producer, party starter, and music aficionado, Codes' breakout 2011 EP Codes House (an instant hit with DJs here, there and everywhere) has set the bar (and expectations) high.
His newest release, Codes' House Remix EP (Slow Roast Records), featuring the breakout party anthem Guzzlin' Champagne, does little to slow that momentum.

Upcoming projects?
"I have a new single coming out on Slow Roast with [dance-music heavyweight] Craze; we'll be shooting a video for that with Scion A/V & MotionGraff," says Codes. "And a new single coming out with Treasure Fingers that's still a little hush-hush."

That and a Slow Roast tour slated for a summer rollout should have Codes coming soon to a dance floor near you.

With radio play around the world on the rise, endorsements rolling in from some of dance music's most influential DJs (and, ahem, promotional services), and the support from club goers around the world reaching critical mass, 2012 is looking to be a breakout year for Slow Roast.

Tip of the Month

This month's tip comes directly from our Facebook page, and goes a little something like this...

iTunes driving me nuts. I like to keep my POOL downloads in the folders like "mainstream radio", but itunes keeps splitting them into artist specific folders!

Easy fix. Select all the tracks you want to go into your Mainstream Radio folder (which should be under "Compilations"). NOTE: You MUST have more than one file selected.

Go to "File" and select "Get Info". Click on the "Options" tab. Select "YES" under "Part Of Compilation". That should automatically put them in a folder in your compilations.

Make SURE the album name is the same for all of them. If there is nothing in the space, add whatever name you want to call the album. We suggest doing this across the board, for example: "Promo Only Mainstream Radio 2012 01". This will allow your albums to be in chronological order as opposed to alphabetical, e.g. January being below December, February, etc.
