I DJ

Equipment:

2 tech 1200 retired
Behringer mixer retired
Torq DVS system retired

Torq Xponent midi controller (what I use now)
Behringer B2031A studio monitors (amazing sound at a bargin price)

2 Yamaha 15 inch PA speakers
2 Yamaha 18 inch PA subs
Behringer EP 2500 amp
Behringer EP 1500 amp
Behringer 2 way crossover
Behringer xover
Behringer rack mount mixer
beyerdynamic wireless mic
planing on selling most of my PA gear.


Before you buy equipment figure out what type of DJ you want to be (mobile club bedroom) and what type of music you want to play(hiphop EDM ect.). The Hercules midi controller is O.K. if you want to DJ in your bedroom, house party's, or be a mobile DJ but it's not good if you want to be a club DJ.

^ Shit i thought i was the only one here haha!

A midi controller is a good start but definitely not a Club Standard. Plus can still throw down at house parties.

Hey Manic since you seem to have some experience with speakers what are some good Active studio monitors that are not too expensive. I was looking at the Rokit KRK6 but i dunno i cant justify spending 350 on each monitor LOL

Behringer B2031A studio monitors

Amazing for the price. Should cost 2x the price. Some of the best speakers I have heard. You have 150 watts RMS going to the 8 inch mid and 75 watts RMS going to the tweeter.



I paid $359 plus taxes from Tom Lee with a price match from here
http://www1.canadacomputers.com/prod...item_id=021936

I don't know if Tom lee still carry's them but long-mcquade does and I think they price match too.

Hercules RMX is even better so id totally get it if its within ur budget.

Check out www.virtualdj.com if you guys wanna mess around with DJ software. Download the demo which gives u 30 days but the program it self is full with all features. or download it via torrent hehe

oHenry, all this shit is actually quite affordable if you finance. $100 payments a month is quite reasonable plus Long and Mcquade hooks you up if you buy more shit lol.
I heard they were phasing out technics 1200s so I want to pick up a set before they do. Want to mix vinyl so baaaad. Don't really care if i get them used, as long as its in good condition. I would finance if i had steady income. All my money goes towards the car...and food.

The 1200's are apparently discontinued now to my knowledge but local music stores still carry them until all sold out. Vinyl is the shit but its even more expensive due to well vinyl cost up to $10.00 each per song... You can always get a DVS system like Serato but thats even more money. CDJ's is the best way to go!

By Tech's used there built like tanks and will last for ever.
local Pawn shop has one for $250. Here is one on craigslist for $275
http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/va...093572589.html

Spend $300 on a mixer
and a DVS system like Torq. $200 here http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/va...087647010.html

and you got a setup for under $1200 plus speakers and headphones.

mk3 doesnt refer specifically to the 1000's. I have been Dj'in for 10 years now and VDJ is a good starting point. For those wanting to start with Vinyl pick up some direct drive TT's on Craigslist or a pawn shop with a cheap mixer and go crazy. Just like anything its about having fun and practicing. Spinning house trance electro music is easier then hiphop and rap as the beats per minute are around the same range so again if ur into that its a good starting point. I got 2 1200's with a Rane Mixer. You need to get Good headphones that are comfortable!!!!

CDJ1000 MK3 are pretty much the same as the 800's. Only biggest difference is Hot Cues, Better Wave Display, SD card and generally better build quality overall.

CDJ900 + 2000 are a whole new league in technology, same as the CDJ850. All the new Pioneer products could now be linked through RekordBox Software which kinda acts as a DVS system and you can play yours songs through the computer. I dont really know too much details since i havent played around with them yet. Plus you could use USB on all the new line CDJ's.

Check out some reviews and features here

The pitch control is more accurate on the 1000's than the 800's. If you are good at beat matching though this is not an issue.

I think there is only 2 stores that sell DJ gear, TomLee Music and Long and Mcquade...

Also i hate to say it but FutureShop is going all " Pro Audio " and carry some equipment...

Check their website for Sales, I know as a fact that there is already discounted items up to 50% off at TomLee and MC

VCI-100 is 10X better

Im currently using Hercules Control Steel w/ DJ IO soundcard

And the build quality of this particular midi controller is superb, the knobs are still tight, faders are crisp and not flimsy like a lot of the NUMARK designs lol.

Just a quick tip, if anyone decides to start out make sure you get decent speakers and a decent laptop with ATLEAST 3 GB of ram xP

I DJed before using M-audio's Torq DVS system and my techs using the original Intel Atom CPU and 1 gig of ram.
