Here is my current DJ set-up.
I have it housed on a farily ugly table. Covering it with a blanket allows me store things underneath it out of sight.
This is power supply. It is much better than a simple power-bar. It has a battery built into it and if the power shuts off, the battery takes over and keeps my system from crashing. This has saved me a few times at bars that didn’t have the best electrical systems in place.
I have a laptop that is my dedicated DJ computer. I don’t use it for any other purpose.
I hate using the mouse pad on laptops. So I asked for this wireless mouse for Christmas. Thanks, mom! It can sit right in front of the mixer and makes controlling my computer a lot easier.
This is a Soundblaster SBX. It is an external soundcard that lets me record my mixsets with ease. I plug in the record feed from my mixer into the line in. I can then record on programs like Audacity or Adobe Audition.
Headphones are a must!
I love the Numark HDX turntables. They are digital and have internal hard-drives, but they are vinyl controlled.
I love having the full-sized, actual vinyl records to scratch. I replaced the clear vinyl that came with the units with some coloured vinyl from my collection.
I have the first generation Rane SL1 Control Box. I have to use the old Scratch Live version of the Serato software. I hope to upgrade soon to a mixer that has Serato built right in so I can use Serato DJ some day.
I have an Allen and Heath Xone: 22 mixer. I really love it. It’s not top of the line but it is a great mixer for a scratch DJ.
This is my most recent accquisition. I bought control vinyl so I can rock on the turntables at the radio station now.
Plus, if I do a DJ gig and they already have turntables, I can leave my at home and rock with these.
I have Road Ready cases though, so my gear is portable. It just takes a couple of trips.
Let me rock your party!
I am available to DJ all events and have great rates.
