Open House + Taster Courses [Sat 04/28]

On Saturday the 28th of April, MMMMAVEN School Of Music will open our doors for an open house and a taste of what we do. We invite you to come in and mingle with other music enthusiasts while sampling our DJ and Production programs. The classes will be very hands-on – you will learn the basics of DJing with vinyl and Serato in our state of the art studio and work on Ableton Push to create your own music.

Instructors: Kareem Clarke and Greg (DJ Rugged One)

New York native Kareem Clarke, has been a musician for most of his life. After DJing for many years in college, Kareem has decided to pursue a full time music career. He spent two years in Valencia and got two Master’s Degrees; one in Music Business and one in Music Production Technology and Innovation.

RA: Updated Serato DJ No Longer Requires Hardware


via Resident Advisor

The trial version is now called Serato Lite (formerly Serato Intro), while the full version has been renamed Serato DJ Pro. Where previous versions required a controller or proprietary hardware, the new versions don’t. They now come with a “practice mode” that allows for in-computer mixing.

New users can now download Serato Lite and get started immediately without a license or any kind of controller.
