1  General / The Forum / Re: Sip the Juice w/ JERU THE DAMAJA, SADAT X & DJ DOO WOP on: October 21, 2012, 01:09:33

Only (semi) complaint I had was Sadat X was cupping the mic all night, and that meant you could only hear him in certain parts of the main room! Guy is one of my favourites too.

Exchange is gonna be grand I reckon. Haven't had a bad night there.

I'm so glad that a few of you realised that that was the issue! I tried as hard as I could to re-eq it into something audible over the tunes without feedback. I didn't have the required balls to tell the hip-hop royalty how to hold the mic when MCing, maybe next time.. Was also a bit disappointed that the redlined rane 57 sounded a bit crunchy at times.(but is was clipping mp3s)

The Basement is great! I love it down there, especially live gigs. Its got almost as much sound system down there but with small room acoutics (ie doesn't need a full room to sound at its best)

The venue is progressing as we go, and as far as comparison to castros we have knocked down walls to extend the main room and done a lot of general building work to improve the feel of the place. Still more to do but work has become a bit more prioritised and difficult to when open so much.

 Basic lighting is being improved as soon as the rest of the trussing can go up. Air conditioning for the main room is in the pipeline and general fans are also arriving imminently! It can get a bit sweaty.

But y'all should come check it out and say hi.
Jeru was awesome.

shucks, i've just spent my first saturday night off in ages typing an essay about work. lame. Bad Teeth

Ive got hard drives that work on both , think its about how you format em.

but APU macs can be pricks about permissions...

We had a shared External HD for backup in my old office. 2 macs and 1 PC. We used to back each of them up on there quite regularly and it worked fine with all of them.  Two Thumbs

That'll posibly be a network drive, different type of creature that can use any internal file system as long as it can handle FTP, so the computer need not deal with FATs etc

If you can FTP over the network, that may be a winner. unless you dont have gigabit lan, then you will have all the joy of 12MBs transfer speed.

We have spent 5 years searching the country for a simple field with little to no real noise restrictions, it's the first thing we look at in a site as its so essential these days! 

i'm pleased to announced we have actually found one, probably the most suited site in the country to hold boomtown, no noise drop after middnight, over 20 venues running at the same time, our 50k F1 reggae, jungle stage can be turned up to full wack!!!! it's gunna be heavy    Slayer

as i've always said... it's time to readjust your body clocks you drug fueled tweeny poppers.

if you get up at 9am then you can have 14 hours of 130-140dB in your ballsack until standard licensing 95dB kicks in at 11pm.

it generally wrecks most of the the light show, but at least we have these LED walls and stuff to stare at in daylight. (or go into a giant bingo hall, eh?)

oh yeah and stage programmers have not quite figured the potential of this though.

Buuuut i do believe during the producer at overkill the ground was shaking several hundred meters away at 4am in the morning, that soundcop was a dude. BRRRAAAAP

final option: prey for very heavy rain, the sound will not propagate through tonnes of sky water!  Cry Pimp
31  General / The Forum / Re: What are the most durable DJ Mixers & CDJs? on: June 14, 2011, 15:33:25
cdj1000's are the one and only...

pioneer mixers are boss and tough as, but being deisgned by pioneer they have very little tollerance for excited (shall we say) DJ's, as soon as all the channels go redline >+10dB they tend to start sounding crap (cos they is got digital stages to deal with, attenuating on the back will not fix it)
allen and heath dont have the badass FX built in but can be run at +26dBv before serious sound degridation, they also have an internal jumper to never let the input channels go over unity (but i've never been mean enough to enable it). designed in cornwall init. ever seen the bug on a mixer? This comes from the large desk heritage and knowledge which pioneer just don't have.

my current setup is 4 x cdj1000, xone 92, xone 62, djm 909, djm 800, rane ttm56, + 1210's - i dont know if it would survive 40 passion DJ's without a badman wrangler, tazer and johnny 5 from short circuit.

Arma2 - only 4 quid on steam.

Bearing in mind I'm a battlefield 2  fan - is it worth investing any time on?

Is ARMA2 better than Op Flashpoint: Dragon Rising?

not tried OF:DR either, but love ARMA2. It is true ubergeekfest, took me longer to do the tutorial than to complete some CoD's  Oh my! That's so funny, but EEEEEEEEEEEK!
have friends that spend months designing missions and campaigns... NERD ALERT!
most slightly more normal people i've shown it to are not interested.

there are better looking smoother titles out there, but not as sim.

the mega menus are an arse at first, until you ninja up the mousewheel skills. does feel like it could be stremlined, but if you are gonna command every element of the battlefield you need dem buttons.

Get the British armed forces add-ons, they is wicked.

for 4 it's worth a look. but check out minimum specs...
