BPM 2014 in Pictures & Star Wars Loves AskAudio Mag

If you didn't have the chance to attend the BPM show in the UK this weekend (one of the main shows for DJs in Europe) here's some highlights we've curated for you.  

You’ve likely seen news article on the new DJ gear from Numark announced at BPM, 2014. (See here). Aside from that, the BPM show was buzzing this year. Lots of gear, tech—and of course DJs—were on hand to show some of the latest digital decks and mixers in action.

Here’s a mini roundup in pictures of what caught our eye.

Pioneer DDJ-WeGO3

Aspiring DJs have unlimited musical choice with the DDJ-WeGO3: the tactile DJ console that lets you mix your favourite Spotify and iTunes tracks held on your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, or with music on your PC/Mac. On top of that, the portable DDJ-WeGO3 charges the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad while it plays, giving you one less thing to worry about.

The star of the busy Novation booth were the Launch Controls… but their recent release, the AudioHub 2x4, got our attention by staying out of the way yet keeping all devices neatly connected.

AskAudio Mag is a hit with Wookiees.

We always knew our print mag was popular across the globe… but who would’ve figured it’d also be popular in Tatooine? Chewbacca and Darth Vader proved that you can’t always predict who reads your magazine… but one thing is for certain the force can be with you for free (plus shipping only) for a year’s subscription if you act quickly now.
