  1. Lettuce know how you go, I haven't encountered this issue with a Desktop computer before, usually their PSU's aren't converting power like the power packs in laptops. I have encountered this issue with almost every laptop I've touched however. Would be definitely interested to know how you solve this one!
  2. Hi Mark, It isn't unusual for a program to run into troubles and crash every once in a while. This has been a constant thing swinging producers and DJ's into the Mac industry, though I've seen the problems occur on both platforms Windows and Mac. Your best bet is to try and do as much on the computer as possible and do some practice at home to see if you can get it to crash again. There's a lot of things happening in the background between that controller, the program and the sound card in the controller all at once. Another thing with laptops: check to see if sleep and hibernate are off in your power settings. If the system wasn't rebooted cleanly for some time, this could be the easiest thing you can do. Sometimes where I've put the X - on the screenshot there's an option for a fast shutdown or Hybrid shutdown. If you have that, turn that off. Start an Elevated Command Prompt by clicking Start > typing "command" > right click "Command Prompt" and choose "Run as Administrator" Type powercfg /h off This will turn hibernate off as well and reduce you to shut down and restart only.
  3. Bigups for the continuous mix posting homie! Digging the mixes!
  4. I have a 12" sub. 5" speakers is tiny. I shoulda bought an 8" sub
  5. holy shit dude that's epic. both of those look amazing. Well done!
  6. They've gotta match the KRK sub. So I guess I'm going for the KRK's. New office speakers come at me!
  7. No monitors seem to have the DSP stuff built in. These also have a limiter which I want, so that'd negate ~$250 and a rackmounted piece of equipment I think from the get go. Do you think based off these things, it'd be beneficial for my scenario? I'm 80% convinced, just looking for someone with a bit more knowledge to give a nod towards the DSP features and the limiter capabilities included for environment versatility.
  8. I'm in the market for a new set of monitors. What do you all think about these vs the G3's? $300 difference in the 8" set which is what I'm getting, do you think its worth it?
  9. KRK Launches Rokit G4 Line: An Update To The Classics For years, one of the best bang-for-your-buck studio monitors was the Rokit G3 lineup. With their iconic yellow cones and solid response, KRK’s Rokit line was a favorite of bedroom producers and DJs. Now at NAMM 2019, KRK is launching a new generation, the Rokit G4 line, with a number of substantial new features. Here’s a quick overview. KRK Rokit G4 Gear: Rokit G4 Models: Rokit 5, 7, 8, and 10-3 Price: $179, $239, $299, and $499 respectively Release: Expected February 2019 – preorder on DJTT here: (RP5, RP7, RP8) These are pretty advanced monitors considering their price points, with Kevlar drivers and a solid set of onboard tuning and EQ options. Here’s the feature set straight from KRK: Rigid Kevlar drivers for low-distortion sound reproduction Efficient Class D power amp pumps out high-quality sound at reduced operating temperatures Built-in brickwall limiter provides a balanced sound, safeguards against damage, and maintains audio’s dynamics The G4 generation has EQ adjustment right on the back of the monitors, with 25 room presets DSP-driven Room Tuning with 25 visual Graphic EQ settings Optimized high-frequency waveguide produces a wide, deep, dynamic sweet spot and incredible imaging Low-resonance enclosure for spot-on low-end performance Front-firing port yields excellent low-end response and straightforward speaker placement The new tuning app “real-time Room Acoustic Analyzer. Assists with EQ, placement and level matching” KRK app adjusts EQ settings, subwoofer levels, crossover settings, and polarity settings and aids with speaker placement and level matching Onboard signal generator to calibrating the system Includes Iso-foam pads and an optional faceplate with a protective metal grill Let’s be honest, though – KRK will continue to face some tough competition from other entrants into the budget-friendly monitor market. Pioneer DJ, Yamaha, and new comers like Kali Audio’s monitors (read our review here) will not make it easy for KRK. But those competitors don’t feature onboard graphic display EQ settings or associated tuning apps for room analysis. Those features could really convince most budget-minded studio monitor purchasers to go with KRK. Source: https://djtechtools.com/2019/01/26/krk-launches-rokit-g4-line-an-update-to-the-classics/

  16. Some brands come with remote triggers too by the looks on some DJ stores. Maybe head in to your local shop to check them out. https://djcity.com.au/product/chauvet-dj-ac-w-wireless-smoke-machine-remote/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw2v7mBRC1ARIsAAiw34-cOkl9ynaOAVBXGV_tfXmH5ZR-0dolDsIXRVJJGXTnol_0y1qiCIoaApqiEALw_wcB https://djcity.com.au/product/chauvet-dj-hurricane1200-smoke-machine/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw2v7mBRC1ARIsAAiw34_u_ATTh0U5TRYQrH3BzKLi0EH8k4UD9fpdLtPuC1WIzX-7z1pYhEMaAmpYEALw_wcB
  17. Did the #housewerk the other day needed some tunes.
  18. Using two different DJ programs and three different computers to store different chunks of music libraries is a bit rough. cut me some slack.
  19. Legit me and a mate have already said this. But seriously though, it might eventually get to the point where I turn around and hire the equipment out to friends or something, so it'd be nice to know it can't be ruined by just general noobiness when everyone is sloppy af.
