THIS SPEAKER WILL DISPLAY THE LYRICS OF ANY SONG PLAYED THROUGH IT: WATCH

This speaker from Japanese company Cotodama will automatically display the lyrics of any song playing through it on its transparent body. Hand-built in Tokyo at a rate of only 15 a month, this ultra-stylise speaker also ‘listens’ to the mood of the music and adapts the fonts, shapes, rate of lyrics and more to match.

A SPEAKER THAT SHOWS LYRICS? POSSIBLY OUR BEST EVER POST!!!

It’s all made possible by Cotodama’s partnership with PetitLyrics, Japan’s largest lyric database company with over 2 million tracks stored. Watch how it works in the video below.

All this fancy tech is going to cost you though – currently retailing at £4,320, it’s not exactly suitable for drunken karaoke sessions. Other remarkable speakers include Master & Dynamic’s new MA770s and for something more affordable, Apple’s upcoming HomePod.

ABLETON ANNOUNCE LIVE 10: WATCH

Ableton have announced version 10 of their popular music-making software Live. Having only announced Live 9.7.5 last week, the update brings with it a new synth, redfined design, new FX and innovative new features. At the top of the list is a new instrument called Wavetable, funnily enough a wavetable synth with a new re-sizable GUI, something not seen in Live before.

DENON’S NEW GENERATION OF DJ PLAYERS NOW SUPPORT REKORDBOX

Denon’s much-lauded next generation of DJ media players have added rekordbox support top their long list of features. The twice DJ Mag Tech award winners, v1.0.3 of the Denon SC5000 Prime “automatically and elegantly” converts hot-cues, playlists and saved loops from either the rekordbox software or anything saved on-the-fly during a set.

It’s a big step for Denon whose new players have been widely praised, but were surely dismissed by those who’d invested significant time and effort in ‘rekordboxing’. It’s unclear whether Denon’s parent company InMusic licensed the technology or if it’s a custom ‘hack’ but either way, it’s an interesting move from the first challenger to Pioneer’s crown in over a decade.

The update is available now and the SC5000 Prime is priced at $1,899.
