Help With Equipment
hey, im a starter dj, but im kinda making it into house parties and stuff now, so i think i need to get a bit of new equipment.

i'd just like tips about a new mixer - i really dont no which one to get, but the one i have right now isnt qualified. im looking to keep it under 1500 - and hopefully something with a lot of built in effects.

also - speakers? i need help with that because i got no idea, same deal - rather keep it cheap.



thx, doz

pioneer 500


you can pick up a second hand 600 piece of shit for around $1k or less.

you could actually care about your sound and buy a rane empath then buy an external effects unit. or you could buy a urei 1601 E which will come well under the 1.5k or KP2 and vestax mixer for around 1.5K which would be the VMC 185.

if you're serious, get a serious mixer then save up for a serious effects unit. or alternatively just buy a ecler nuo 5 and be done with it.

that depends if you want to spend under 1,500 for the mixer AND speakers / monitors

I just picked up an ecler smac pro 20 (only 2 channel & no fx) for around the 400 mark from storedj - but fx dont really mean a lot to me atm.

If you can, get into a shop that has a range of mixers & / or speakers around the price range you want and try them out and see which one you like the most. Dont forget that there is always lay-buy. And yes, there will ALWAYS be something that you want but cant afford yet...

*goes back to the A3 prints of an avalon channel strip "ohhh baby... yea, i know you like your gain at 12..."

I'll buy you a beer if you can find me a nuo4 and a KP3 for under $1500 on my doorstep.

there's no way you can buy in australia for that, and as far as i know, you can't do it overseas as well... so it'd be awesome if you could tell me cause I'd SERIOUSLY consider buying that.
