Designing a custom skin at StyleFlip makes you unique!

Whether you are looking for an Apple iPhone 4s skin or a Google Nexus 7 tablet cover or a Dell Laptop skin, Styleflip allows you to create your own custom skin and ensures your gear will be protected! Mass customization is offering consumers the ability to customize or design a product to their liking before purchasing them; in the case of Styleflip, the process includes designing your own custom skin. Many companies have a strong lead on mass customization, but the problem lies in doing it just right.

    

For example, offering the customization of Dell laptops was a huge advantage for them. As options for customization started to expand, the process started to become too complex and costly, which in return, caused customers to turn away. Why spend more time and money creating a product that would end up being too costly, when you could go to the competitors next door that have everything you need and all at a low price?

The situation was the opposite for Levi Strauss’ line of custom made jeans. The company began to offer customers the option to create their own custom pair of jeans, but the problem arose when customers felt that there weren’t enough features available in the creation process. Again, why spend more time and money in the creation process when you can buy a pair of jeans from the competitor for a lower price with all the features you are looking for?

Although both of these companies eventually figured out what the best method was, they were both ahead of the game because having a system that allows you to customize your gear, gives a customer satisfaction in knowing that they will own a product that they had a hand in creating. This is a much more gratifying feeling than owning a product that has been mass produced.

That is the great thing about us here at Styleflip! At Styleflip the options are nearly endless because our customers are the ones customizing beats by dre headphones and designing custom laptop skins. The majority of our customers are bringing forth their own designs or images and using our program to customize their laptop skins or design an iPhone skin. Customization allows a brand to enhance its uniqueness and differentiate from other mainstream competitors by having the customers be the creators in the process! It is rare to find a company in which the customers get to use their own creativity and make all the decisions in the design process, but that is what stands out best about Styleflip.com!

Styleflip skins are durable and protective and are guaranteed to last as long as your equipment lasts!

Custom Skins Make Great Gifts This Holiday Season!

In this day in age, we live in a society that is dependent on mobile devices, whether it be cellphones, tablets, laptops, or gaming units. These gadgets are very important to us because they keep us in close contact with our friends and family and provide us access to the internet, up-to-date news, and email. As new devices are released each year, they come with a higher price tag to match their new features and more advanced technology.  Custom skins for your electronics are a great way to keep these devices protected from damage while also making your device stand out from the masses. StyleFlip custom skins also make great gifts, as you can design and customize each skin decal to match each recipient’s personality or interests.

Did your Mom finally get a smartphone? Think about how delighted she would be to open a gift and find a custom decal or her iPhone with a photo of her grandchildren on it! My stepdad is a racecar driver so I made him a protective Apple Macbook Pro skin adorned with a checkered flag and his racing # for Father’s Day – it was a total hit. Kids love custom skins too! Perhaps your daughter loves kittens or your son plays football for Syracuse. With custom skins, you can create a personalized gift for their Beats by Dre headphones, Apple iPhone, or Nintendo DS that matches their interests and allows them to express what they love! Not only are the decals unique to every order, they are also protective. All StyleFlip skins come with a special laminate that provides extra protections for your precious cargo! With Christmas right around the corner keep in mind custom skin decals are the perfect size for stocking stuffers!

         

Personalized skins make great gifts for adults too. Women love decals designed with photos of their kids, pets, husbands, etc. Floral patterns and stripes are also great for girls. For men, the possibilities are endless. You can design a skin with a golf ball on it for your Husband, or purple and gold to match your Dad’s favorite sports team. Wood and metallic patterns are also great for dudes, as are skins designed with photos of their beloved cars. Custom skins are the way to go this holiday season!

Q.  How has your music creation evolved since you first started?

A. My music is now more a direct reflection of experiences and life that I have lived and listen too. So all styles I have studied in school play a big part in what I like to play. I believe that you should take people on a ride through life musically.

A. Technic 1200

 

Q. What do you have for a current gear set-up?

Q. You must witness a lot working as a DJ. Any crazy/ funny stories from events you’ve DJ’d at? Any bridezilla moments? Fights? Etc.?

A. Never a dull moment when girls try to back it up and actually fall off the stage backwards. Also the guy that likes to stage-dive but he’s too big so everyone moves out of the way and he pancakes the floor. I think the last fight I saw at an event was while I was playing Rick James inside of Ibar at the Rio Casino…Cocaine is a hell of a drug

 

Q. What do you see as the future of this industry (Deejaying, Hip Hop, etc..)?

A.  I currently book entertainment and talent under my own company as well. I am from a family of business owners so as time progresses the work for me is less while still maintaing a diverse brand. I will still spin of course but now Im hoping to showcase my actual musicianship more.

A. Deejays are your friends and not your enemies. If you approach us with respect to our craft and networking we will happily work with you. We want new music that is great to expose to listeners but we don’t want artists that are pumped up by their friends into thinking they are better than what they are. Stay humble and keep pushing.

Serato Scratch Live: Know Your Gear With DJ TeeOh Part 2/3 – StyleFlip.com

 
The Scope View

Scope View

The Scope View

The scope views on the setup screen in Scratch Live display the input signal as a phase diagram. The key factors to look at on the scope display are crisp clean lines, round shape, and the tracking percentage in the lower right corner. This view shows how well Scratch Live is tracking the control signal.

 

 

Adjusting the scopes

Once you have set the threshold, start both turntables. For optimal performance the inner ring should be as close to circular as possible. Use the scope zoom slider (1x to 16x) to zoom in or out as necessary. Use the scope L/R balance and P/A balance controls to adjust the shape of the inner ring. The number in the top left corner of the scope view gives the current absolute position within the control record or CD. The number in the top right
corner is the current speed in RPM.

Adjusting the Scopes


In the bottom left is the current threshold setting, and the number in the bottom right shows the percentage of readable signal – this number should be at least 85% when your system is calibrated properly. Realistically, anything below 95% is going to degrade performance.

Diagnosing the Scope Views

This is an example of a good, clean signal displayed in the scope view:

Good Signal:
For optimal performance the inner ring should be as close to circular as possible. Use the scope zoom slider (1x to 16x) to zoom in or out as necessary. Use the scope L/R balance and P/A balance controls to adjust the shape of the inner ring.

The bottom left corner is the current threshold setting.
The bottom right corner shows the percentage of readable signal – this number should be as close to 100% as possible when your system is calibrated properly. At values of less than 85% you may start to experience tracking difficulties.

Many playback problems that you encounter when using Scratch Live can be attributed to not getting a good reading of the control signal from your vinyl or CDs. The scopes are a great tool for diagnosing what is happening.

Following are the most common scope views you may encounter with suggestions to help you solve the problems they can represent.

Note: Some problems cause similar looking scopes (eg. dusty needle and damaged needle) so it is recommended to try all suggested solutions until your problem is solved.


Here are the various symptoms that could be displayed in your DVS.

 

Stay Tuned for Part 3 of Serato Scratch Live: Know Your Gear With DJ TeeOh!

Brought to you by:

Serato Scratch Live: Know Your Gear With DJ TeeOh Part 1/3 – StyleFlip.com

The best instance of professionalism is that hard work pays off. In the music realm this translates into quality. Whether you are a producer, singer, or a DJ you must ensure that you are using the maximum quality possible. This means connecting and calibrating all equipment to function at maximum capability.

Would you show up to perform with only one turntable knowing you need two?

No. This is the same as showing up with damaged equipment or failing to properly set up. Most people know their gear well enough to setup with little or no issues. However, the most commonly neglected aspect is calibration even though it should be conducted every time before performing. If you are like many, you probably show up and use whatever gear is at the venue. Problems that may arise include:

  • Gear is switched
  • Gear is broken
  • Gear is misused

This is also where bringing your own accessories comes in. I would never use a clubs house needles or headphones. Relying on community gear will surely land you in a bind. Bringing your own gear gives you the peace of mind in knowing that it works. Should something go wrong you can usually eliminate your own gear right off the go. If you do bring your own setup (turntables, controller, etc) then calibration is equally important.

Anytime you move you equipment you should calibrate.

 

What is calibration?

In short this means setting up so it works right with other gear. Failure to do this may not have affected you yet, but it will. Something could go wrong in front of 4,000 people (but that’s a different story). There is nothing worse than having your equipment fail during or moments before your performance. To prevent this situation you must service your equipment.

Most of us know to check cables, make sure grounds are solid, and everything is plugged in correctly. Setting up your software is just as important as the hardware. The most important part of setting up your software is calibration.In the following I will walk you through a generalized calibration using Serato Scratch Live. These steps also can be applied to other DVS systems as well as controllers and Timecode CDs. Should you encounter a problem that requires troubleshooting please read the troubleshooting tips in Part 2. If you are not using Serato simply refer to your manual or online resource for specifications.

Why is it important to calibrate your DVS?

In the standard configuration of DVS systems an analog audio source (turnable / CDJ) sends the Scratch Live control signal into a Rane Scratch Live hardware device, where it is digitized. It is then sent to the Scratch Live software and used to control playback of a digital audio file. Calibrating allows the software to distinguish between what is heard as the control signal and what is recognized as background noise and ignored.

If you have not correctly calibrated for your system and environment you may run into a number of playback issues including glitching/skipping playback and your tracks not playing at all.

The noise threshold in a DVS system is the limit below which the input signal will not be interpreted as a control signal. In other words, if it’s below the threshold, it is considered noise and ignored by the software. This setting is necessary because a turntable stylus is very sensitive and will inevitably pick up noise from the environment as well as the signal on the record. This is especially noticeable during a live show or busy club. Turntables and CDJs can be effected by vibrations from the sound system as well. Every precaution should be taken to reduce any vibration.

Setting the noise threshold
1) Turn the sound system up the level you will be playing at during your performance.

2) Play a track from an audio CD or from the other deck in internal mode.

3) Place the needle on the record but keep the turntable stopped.

4) Click and hold down the Estimate button for a few seconds – Scratch Live will estimate the optimal threshold setting for the current environment. Alternatively you can try manually moving the estimate slider to the right until you notice the number in the upper-right corner of the scope view STOPS fluctuating.

You should be at the best point for good tracking of the vinyl movement and ignoring noise. Note: Just because it says 100% does not mean that is the best setting.

5) Repeat this process for each deck. Once completed, start the deck and look at the Scope view.

NOTE: The process for calibrating a cd player is virtually the same. The only difference is you’ll need to press pause on the cd deck with the control cd in the player before hitting the estimate button.

 

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this series coming out Friday October 19!
