Re: In Shock…
errr.. i bet they can play on something else then cdj1000 :p get cdj200′s for rent.. those cost barely anything even if ya just buy em… it cost as much as hiring cdj1000 :p
but erm.. really.. why cant guys that are used to pro equitment play with a simple controller? it is sooooooooo much easier.. and assuming its house/electro/trance played on the worship? thats perfect for most controllers as they often have software that only support up to 150 bpm.
i had a house fire couple years ago and went from 2x pioneer mk3 + 1x denon s5000 + 1x cdj200 + mccrypt 4 channel mixer to well.. wot i got now.. a behringer bcd2000…. i just use all i learned on the pro stuff on this thing and aslong as i dun go over 150 bpm it works fine.. gotta complain to behringer bout that though but ow well.. if the artists you book have some compassion roddy they should just get used to it and go wif wot you got. it aint to hard. they just need to set the cd’s/vinyl to mp3′s which aint to hard.
either way… there are things you can save on i guess i dunno if the dj’s charge cash..? also a post to safe on.. we done an event not long ago and most of the dj’s played for free.. some wanted travling expenses which is understandable theres many ways to make it cost less pm me if ya need some tips on organising stuff maybe i can help somehow
