So maybe I will update this now and then or not and add other links here but I have just come across a couple of tools I will be using regularly.
I should really take a bit more time to explain what for and why but right now it is good to organize things on the blog as a point of reference. So, check out these awesome free tools from Alex Hiltons A! audio
I have also started using a few FX racks of these in Ableton from tarekith.com/. It's a nice set of DJ tools some very useful, some not so useful and more for fun.
also these are for fun
