  1. I'll be carting my equipment around. It isn't for myself. It's for when others are using it and I don't wanna stand by it watching it like a hawk. Basically want to prevent as much noobiness as possible. So yeah, for situations where the equipment is not just only in control by me.
  2. Fuark let alone the solution, great use of the star system. Going to incorporate.
  3. Dragged my 8" monitors to a house party the other weekend and the tweeters have blown. Definitely at some point the signals were entirely maxxed, from dj controller to mixer console to speakers. I wanna put something in the chain that can prevent something like this happening again, where I can setup the gear and walk away knowing noobs can push their signals as much as they want. Is a limiter something I should be looking for here? Anyone got any experience, recommendations?
  4. Very different to your older stuff, thoroughly enjoying mate!
  5. Having midi controllers definitely expands your capability to more live performance aspects, having a maschine + a DJ setup for instance would give you some extremely creative freedom. Bass Kleph has been doing it for years now, always found his style intriguing. And as well as this DJ Rafik and Sixty Nine Beats also come to mind;
  6. It's all just midi commands, the software evolves and the controllers can stay relatively consistent. The all in one controllers can't really change that much more as a regular setup (CDJ/DJM combo) hasn't changed at all either. The features between CDJ's, for instance the diff between the CDJ900 and CDJ2000 being the auto-loop vs hot cue buttons, are all programmable between the DJ software and the controller.

  8. Good mix man quite enjoyed it ! Camera needs to be higher so we can see what you're doing, loved the editing though was good!
  9. lacquer it in that paint they do speakers in and you'll be fine.
  10. Hey there! What gear did you end up dusting off!? Beatport, addictech, bandcamp are the main ones - I personally prefer to try hunt down labels or artists on bandcamp more of the money gets to them then.
  11. farken not wrong, I sold all my CDJ equipment back in like 2012 to buy an APC40 and a Maschine MKII and I have done NOTHING with it ever since, it's so weird without that liveness happening.
  12. Fark yeah dude, do you have Skype? Would love a run through of your system! Got any live vids to go along with mixes/any of your work?? Cheers.
  13. Seems nifty. Wonder how it'll pan out. No needles and timecode would be a good way to get new beginners into turntablism.. I for sure know I don't wanna be spending money on time code vinyl and needles/carts whenever/however long they need to be replaced
  14. Hi Alch, welcome to the forum! I'm interested in your stem layouts, are you using other hardware to do any specific traktor programming? I'm about to move from traditional DJ'ing to something digital and always keen to hear how people made that journey!
  15. Tried for a smooth mix, nothing too technical. Gimme some feedback ya'll. Most of all, hope you enjoy the tunes
  16. Did you get this problem solved? It sounds like Left and Right channels are being recorded correctly (dual mono) and there isn't much difference between what's happening left and right i.e panning? Got shots of your cable setup?
  17. Yeah I think you are confused, this isn't playlist sorting, this is file management. iTunes obviously serves it's purpose there. But iTunes is is a program that reads the file/folder structure, and when you don't have access to that, you lose it's purpose. It also won't edit metadata like BPM/Key and analyse the tracks for beatgrids, that still all needs to be done in other programs.
  18. Lol, he made a desk you two, not stripping back the walls wherever he lives, which is probably a rental. If you're going down the DIY path, Wooden Wall Diffusers seem to be pretty tight if you have the right distances.
  19. Sorry lads but I disagree. Folder structure is important to me when I want shit. And especially where certain file formats are only supported in certain areas, and with certain equipment and setups restricting the file formats once again. Metadata is all sorted, and that was part of the process, now the programs such as iTunes/RekordBox/Traktor/Serato etc I will have no problem with them. E.g: WAV do not come with tags - this information needs to be manually done from somewhere, last time i kept on top of it I had to check my order histories and get the metadata information from the site I purchased the music from. Now I can easily get this information with verbose language via the filename, and do it in batches as each site follows it's on uniformity. Another example would be promotional tracks where the comments and tags are just filled with garbage, I can remove all this before it hits my programs, again in batches. This for me is a way of digitising a physical collection, when I actually want to pick the file, I don't need to open a program and find file from there. I can port this collection around and easily navigate it, even if it is large, and have little to no problem on anyone elses setup or equipment.
  20. 3,000 tunes easily done and sorted. Manually created the artist folders and moved files around as I found this quicker and easier with my knowledge, but did the tagging and renaming through MP3tag - made shit super quick compared to doing each individual file. Behold all it's glory!
  21. Aye they are the housemates bruvva and he's an anal whale.
  22. Found this program extremely helpful over the last few days as I re-sort through my music collection to ensure I've got all the tags correctly done and I've sorted out my conventions for how I'm going to move forward. This program has made it more efficient, I'm able to pull tag information directly from the filename if it's available, and then I can batch rename all the songs to Artist - Title (how I like) once that's done. It also gave me an explorer based view of all my tracks meta data so I could easily see which tracks were helpless in my hoarding process and had to be removed (couldn't identify any of the song quickly enough from either existing tags or filename). Bit of a learning curve in how to perform all the functions, I haven't delved too deeply yet but will be looking at using some of the utility down the track. This will be a program I keep in my aresnal for music enthusiasm.

  23. That's practically a club setup minus the pad functionality. If you're using your laptop you can just take that and use Rekordbox as you would with that, or if you're using USB's with it even better you're already on the mark. If that's what you're playing with at home, you'd love to get your hands on club equipment.
