I do performance mods and repairs to lots of dj gear and live sound gear in my spare time. Tech's are so easy to work on it is unreal. The parts are super cheap and will never be discontinued like CDJ's.

If you have any problems with your decks, let me know and I can advise you on how to fix it.
Any reason to go with a 68 over a 62? I've been looking at eBay and the 62s are actually within my budget. I just sold a few guns today and snagged a pair of 12MK5s. I'm planning on running the decks to the 62/68 and to a Macbook Pro.

If I'm going to run effects pads later like a Novation, should I snag the 68? Would I regret the 62 later down the road? I appreciate the offer for tech help on the 12s, I'll definitely hit you up. Any forums where I can go to read topics of maintenance and other tech subjects?

Thanks.

Well, if the 62 is in your price range, get one. You will not be disappointed with it. The only big advantage to the 68 is the ability to have 4 channels. The 62 will give you the effects, dual usb inputs, and features that the 68 has but it is built more as a "scratch" or "turntablist" mixer. It has midi mapping. It has the crossfader and channel curve adjustments that the 56 and 57 were famous for. I would get one but I love my 57 to much to get rid of it, and can't justify spending the money on another mixer. (I have a sound system that is draining my funds more than my dj stuff, amps are fucking expensive )


The other great thing about Rane shit is that it holds value really well and for a long time. They are located about 20 minutes from where I live. I have a homie that works there at customer support. If you have any issues with Serato or your Mixer / hardware, he can help

LOLtastic. The dubstepz has no place on the 1200's.

Have you guys ever heard of a guy called DJ EZ...???

The bloke is soooooo quick with what he does, i have never seen anyone on decks like him, i used to do some concert and club photography and worked with him more than a few times, and i was always in awe of what he could do with a pair of cdj's and a mixer...

Look him up, him and a a DJ called Dj Terry Marks... Different but both awesome...

Yea, I know how much mobile PA stuff can cost. I used to work on a committee that set up mobile systems and lights for events at my college, provide DJ services etc. We had to be scale-able but we had some damned loud stuff for a small committee. We got a $10k annual operating budget but we could request capital funds to purchase more gear and they basically never questioned what our director put down. The sound guys would always be arguing with the light nerds as to what we needed but we ended up getting everything in the end.

When I left we had 4 Crown XTi 4000s to push a pair of JBL SRX728s (bridged) and 738s, 2 older Crown CE 4000s for two single JBL Pro 18s and that alone was so incredibly loud it even worked for small outdoor stuff. I'm sure they've doubled their capacity since then.

I hugely recommend dBx drive racks for all-in-one preamps, Crown amplifiers and JBL cabinets. I never had any problems in all my years working with them. Throw those things in some good Pelican amp racks and you have nothing to worry about. I could get hold of my old director and get the contact information for the distributor we purchased from; you might be able to save some $$.

Lol. The dubstep and trap type music is getting more popular though and you can definitely work in a few tracks, but I still like house, tech house and hip hop the most. I like to keep a good variety going.

It's funny because so many DJs don't even bring decks anymore. I saw a tech-trance-ish kind of guy last night and a chick playing DnB with a tiny bit of real jungle thrown in and both were just using a laptop, 4 channel mixer and what looked like a big queue-pad in the same vein as a Novation. I talked to the tech-trance guy after the show and he actually plays all original music so he has access to all the stems and he just programs songs live and does everything in Ableton Live. I think that's the way DJing is moving but only for certain styles of music.

Good thing. Every time I saw this thread pop up, I thought you were one of those electronix spammers we get once in a while, and I'd reach for the ban-hammer.

I actually am. I'm just operating in stealth mode right now.

So here's everything. I'm waiting for my Odyssey table to come in so I can actually mix at waist height :/ It's getting annoying because I can't turn the tables 90 (that entertainment stand is too shallow) and I keep bumping the tone arms.

I'll never get rid of this setup (even got that Macbook Pro Retina just for running Serato, Ableton and Traktor). This is dedicated to learning the art of turntablism. However, I'm sure this controllerism movement is going to overtake everything because it really does bend the line between live performance and playing recorded music; I'm thinking there's just a LOT more homework involved than traditional DJing though so a regular setup will always have a use.
