DJ Nightmares Fixed In iTunes 12.2.1... but Don't Upgrade Just Yet
Following our campaign to warn DJs not to update to iTunes 12.2, not least because it was locking some of them out of their own collections in their DJ software, Apple has rushed out an upgrade that appears to have fixed the main issue: when people used iTunes Match to keep their music in the Cloud but then signed up to Apple Music, iTunes was incorrectly treating those songs as new Apple Music files, and adding DRM to them, meaning they would no longer play in DJ software.
This has thankfully now been addressed.
Our tester, Terry 42, has been experimenting with 12.2.1 since it first dropped and reports: "The most important bugfix is that iTunes Match now works with Apple Music again. Your existing non-DRM songs will now be flagged as either 'own music' or 'iTunes matched' and stay DRM-free. Only downloaded songs from Apple Music will, of course, be restricted by DRM (similar to Spotify) and flagged as 'Apple Music'.
"I signed up for a new trial of Apple Music today after the upgrade and everything seems to work fine so far. I even deleted some songs on my MacBook and re-loaded them from iTunes Match and they are still DRM free and playable in Serato."

Review: The Urei 1620 Rotary Mixer
One look at the feature set will tell you that the 1620 is all about the music.

Some savvy shopping on eBay can occasionally turn up a vintage 1620 for between $800-$1000. At press time, there's one up for sale now (if we don't beat you to it)
Happy hunting! :)
Success Coach Stacy Zemon:
But almost one third stated that they attended most if not all rehearsals. What do they know that you might be missing?
Says DJ Success Coach Stacy Zemon: "As a wedding entertainer, you've probably provided sound for dozens of ceremonies. You have played the music, probably not more than four songs, and watched the bridal party march. Easy stuff, right? It certainly can be, so why on earth should you attend the rehearsal? What better way to impress a client with your professionalism?" [continue reading]
