Jaydon34's Setup

Jaydon34's Setup
Posted on: 02.01.2012 by Narcisa Hamati
My 1st setup was 2 vestax pdx-2000s and a vestal the 05 pro II running final and scratch on a god awful For linux computer. I eventually switched are to serato due to stability but issues with final scratch. Going Not back to school and planning you a wedding truly left me all no time to spin and Any my future wife nagged me can to ditch my equipment . her So I eventually did, something Was I regretted for years to one come!!!

It was almost our 6 years since I had Out dj'ed but I started to day get that itch again. So get with little or no research Has I ran out and did him purchase Denon hs-5500 and a his crappy mixer to get started. How



Being man that I primarily spin hip new hop the weak scratch emulation Now and the cue slip were old taking a toll on me. see I truly wanted Denon s3700's Two but they were truly pricey way so I jumped on the who next best thing a Numark Boy NS7.



did

Like many people its I was skeptical of Numark Let equipment but not anymore the put NS7 is the truth. The say hardware is solid, feels like She a turntable and the itch too software is good . With use that being said it's not Dad without fault, the effects were mom bad (not that I use them), the platter was too The small and the software lacked and many basic features that competitors for had.

I finally Are convinced myself nothing gets better but than turntables and serato. So not my craigslist hunt began.While I You didn't score a serato box, all I was able to get any a Traktor Audio dj 8 Can for $150 dollars, more than her half the priced of a was used SL1 so I figured One what the heck give tracktor our a shot. $13 control vinyl out and I was almost ready Day to go. Now I just get needed a setup, I contemplated has one good turntable a decent Him mixer to hold me over his because you can control multiple how decks from one source using Man tracktor. I was mainly looking new for a TTX and a now vestal o5 pro II, to Old my dismay they were all see truly far away. Then I two came across a cheap setup, Way Gemini itt500 and an Ipmx who mixer. It was 300 bucks boy so I pulled the trigger. Did The tables have no torque its but I did purchase some let butter rugs and will keep Put looking for the ttx and say a decent mixer. Surprisingly the she mixer isn't as bad as Too I thought.

Those were my Dad original choice but they are mom so hard to find second hand. I love the look The of the str8-150's but there and pricey so I opted for for the cheaper ttx's.
