Recorded in Ibiza, Denon DJ invited French producer and DJ Sébastien Léger to showcase a hybrid DJ performance at the world-famous Destino Pacha resort. A common struggle with live DJ performances is the ability to synchronise external production equipment without the need for a laptop and an array of MIDI cables and SYNC boxes.
At the heart of the performance is Denon DJ's SC6000 Media Player running Engine DJ 2.0 (OS) - the worlds first standalone DJ platform to support Ableton LINK. Connected over WIFI the SC6000 shares BPM information via Ableton LINK with the AKAI FORCE. Seb has pre-produced MIDI clips saved in the FORCE that he then launches triggering an external Behringer MODEL D Synthesizer for that classic acid sound, and dreamy pads and melodies via the Behringer TD-3 Synthesizer. Seb can then perform on the synthesisers in perfect time manipulating the MIDI clips whilst adding layers of percussion and drum rolls via the classic Roland TR-707 Drum Machine.
We caught up with Sébastien to find out more about his setup and how he uses it to be more creative in his sets combining production elements into a DJ set.
