  1. Yeah...try the AV input 5 first (and select it using the button/knob on the front of the amp). If that doesn't work then remove the RCAs from an input that is currently being used and is known to work. Exactly as Gremmis said. If anyone comments on the lack of volume, or heaven forbids you kill the amp or speakers, tell them to hire some powered PA speakers next time. Make it also very clear to them that you are not responsible for any damage to their equipment!
  2. Straight to an electrician and explain what happened. They'll be able to tell you pretty quickly if you've really stuffed it up and give advice on what to do next. They may even let you know before charging to open it up and having a look.
  3. $1000 discount is bloody decent: http://www.belfieldmusic.com.au/2-x-mac ... akers.html
  4. Party in the front...Business out back. Most folks just dont realise how much work goes into these set ups.
  5. Lighting rig from my last school social:
  6. Be carefully with some lasers that have colours other than green and red (the human eye is most sensitive to these colours) as they look good in videos but are disappointing in real life as they look really weak and are easily washed out by other lights. Always best to see them in operation first before you buy.
  7. No...there is some video on you tube of a bubble machine that has fog/haze actually inside the bubble. Looks great when they pop!
  8. Just for the heck of it... Mic cables contain three wires, hence the three pins on an XLR cable. Mic cables with a jack also have three wires but instead of different pins on the connector, they are wired to different parts of the jack. In the case of a 'TRS' cable its the Tip, Ring and Sleeve hance the name.
  9. The mic connector on the very top left of the mixer accepts both jack (sometimes called TRS) or an XLR connector.
  10. As DrC1 said, the S2 isnt that far different from the S4. If you research the S4 you'll probably find a lot more info on the web.
  11. If you have a bit of musical knowlege, Traktor is the best value option at the moment. Without musical knowledge, VDJ has a slight advantage as it visually illustrates 'bars' (a small segment of the repeating beats in a tune) really well. Its important to time your mixes (blending one track with another) so that the bars of the both tracks land on the same beat. Plenty of stuff on the web about this and its relatively easy to learn by just listening to the music without the need for software.
  12. Get the S4 and get a feel for using a control surface. If your still keen and want to have a crack at beatmixing, then buy a couple of second hand 850s. The S4 will allow you to plug the CDjs in and use it just like a traditional mixer. Best of both worlds.
  13. He's 'riding the pitch' by using the pitch slider to speed up and slow down the record without using his hands or fingers. Pretty impressive given the track is constantly speeding up. I love watching some Djs (Ellaskins is one) who beat match using only this method. At my best I could get the beat matched by using my fingers and if it started to drift during the mix I'd ride the pitch to bring it back in.
