RJD2’s Custom Spinning Wireless MPC Remote

March 5, 2010


RJD2 quickly shows his tour setup then explains how he hacked together a wireless MPC controller for use during live performances.  The controller consists of a Korg padKontrol, wireless battery powered MIDI transmitter, 9 volt batttery soldered to a power connector, gorilla glue, and more.  Did we mention that it also has a custom built waist holster/harness and spins?

seems like alot of effort and ingenious thinking for a pretty lame outcome, most people would have no idea what the fuck was even happening when he starts pressing buttons on what looks like a belt buckle designed by a harcore candy raver

for a live show this is genius, the crowd never understands doing beats live but to be able to walk around during a set with this could really expand that element

cool concept on the wireless controller. I wouldnt be surprised if he gets contacted to a collaboration or if they just steal his idea for a wireless midi controller. I’ll pass on the whole spinning buckle part.

I was thinking the same ZZ-Top thing once he said the keyboard going wireless part. Why not do the RJD2 version of “legs” or some $#!t?? RJ has been making all his own stuff for years and doing it well. I too love his older stuff more but the most recent stuff is a step back to that flavor…example Let there be horns, Giant squid, The stranger & small Plans.

Well that stands out well in comparison to the norm. Ingenious, on his part, to have thought this through. Now, all we have to do is watch for a ‘copycat’ come along with something to top it — assuming that that can be done.
Good damn Post!

It seems like a device made for the music geek who’ll notice it’s a padkontrol and there’s no sounds on it. “how’d he do that?”

He could’ve used a 500 which is already battery operated and just made the wireless audio connection. Actually I saw that somewhere already.

Why does it need to spin lol? What if the spinning function was coupled with another type of sound, maybe a turntable scratch ya know?

I can only imagine how many requests this site must get. From what I can tell, they post videos of people who have made some sort of impact. My suggestion is start making youtube vids and if they’re good and interesting enough they might someday end up here. On the other hand there are countless other blogs you can submit your projects for review to.

I saw him live about the time he did this video. I thought the hardware was a great rig especially the fact he got the crowd involved in squarepushing. Most notably he was sporting welding gear with ‘commissioner crotchbuttons’ across his back…

I think that what you composed made a ton of sense. However, think about this, suppose you were
to create a awesome title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however what
if you added a title to possibly grab folk’s attention?
I mean RJD2’s Custom Spinning Wireless MPC Remote is a little boring.
You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post titles to grab viewers to open the links.
You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit
more interesting.
