With extra cheese.
If I stayed CDJ, I'd probably go 2000s; I'm moving to vinyl.Serato will run on this though, i understand the need to upgrade though...
I had the CDJ-1000 Mk 3's and a DJM 800.
Sold it all when i moved a couple of years ago, but once i have sorted out some land and built my new house, then i will replace it all in the "den" that will be built in the basement...
I'm sticking with an external mixer and an SL2 for now. I may upgrade to a Rane 68 or 62 later.Wow. I didn't know that pioneer made a djm 350. I had a djm 300 in 1999 but haven't seen one in at least 10 years. If you are moving to Serato, May I suggest the Rane 68. It is awesome. It seems expensive but is worth every penny
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.I hear you on that. I have a TTM57 and a 68. Love em both. And props for going vinyl!! I have been playing on 1200's since 1996. I never bought cdj's because they just feel fake. They are also expensive and they break far more often that a Technics deck.
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. :thumbsup:
If you have any problems with your decks, let me know and I can advise you on how to fix it.
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.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 :dizzy
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
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.LOLtastic. The dubstepz has no place on the 1200's.
dnb forever :cheeky4:
