ABOUT CHANTEL JEFFRIES:
Over the past few years, Chantel Jeffries has traveled all across the world as part of her whirlwind career as a DJ. In her constant globe-hopping, Jeffries has tapped into her infinite curiosity about music of all kinds, gaining a deep knowledge of everything from Euro-house to dancehall. Upon returning to L.A., Jeffries began channeling those inspirations into her burgeoning work as a producer’s process that finds the former math whiz using mathematical sequencing to create her artfully arranged tracks. The first taste of her hip-hop-infused take on dance music: Wait, a bright and beat-heavy instant smash that quickly hit #4 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart.
Jeffries has spent much of the past year DJ-ing major events like the Vanity Fair Oscar party and the Apple Music x Beats 1 party at Coachella. The live set is a full experience, with a lot of visual stimulation in the lights and video elements, says Jeffries, who has a 2019 Las Vegas residency with Hakkasan Group.

The Splash House experience is defined by forward-thinking music programming, unmatchable poolside settings, and a uniquely convenient party format. Attendees can dance all day just steps away from their hotel, dip in and out of a multitude of pools, catch some hi-jinks from a hotel balcony, or cruise between venues in the now legendary shuttles.

Roland Announces 4XCAMERA App for iOS


Easily create split screen music video performances on iPhone or iPad


Roland (LVCC Central Hall, Booth# 17544) announces 4XCAMERA, a unique new video capture app for iOS devices. 4XCAMERA makes it easy for musicians to create music videos with up to four performances split on the screen. Aspect ratios of 1:1 and 16:9 are supported, and 10 split-screen patterns are available for each. The app is a free download and allows users to capture up to two performances. Full functionality is available via an in-app purchase of $3.99.

With 4XCAMERA and an iPhone or iPad, it’s quick and simple for one person to create split screen performance videos of original music, cover songs, or karaoke tracks. And by sharing 4XCAMERA video projects through cloud-based storage, multiple musicians can use the app to contribute performances from anywhere in the world. 

The user starts by capturing one video performance to the 4XCAMERA app. Using this video as a guide, they can capture three more performances, adding new parts on each pass. Sound can be recorded via the device’s built-in mic or through a connected audio capture device.

All videos for a song are stored within the app’s library. To complete a split screen music video, the user applies a split screen pattern, adjusts volumes for each video, and then renders a final file for sharing on YouTube and other social media sites.
