    Default dj fail of the day

    starting this thread to share some and hear some!

    my fail today:

    recording an überawsome mix. listening to it. realizing that you mixed externally but recorded internally.

    edit: forgot to mention that it was me mixing 85 tracks in 50 mins :eek:

    Not pressing record during a live radio show that was mandatory I record. Had to go back and redo it.

    that indeed is a fail. you should have seen my face today listening to my mix wondering why i hear the other record skipping, scratching and looping

    recording a mix

    it's the last tune and im mixing like a true champion

    hand in the air, dancing away like a knob

    listen to monitor speakers and wonder why the sound is soo low

    look down to realise the bass is on '0' still

    I couldnt hear deck 3 the other night. Was proper confused. All looked to be well.

    Spend the next 20 mins double checking every lead, connection and sound preference in traktor.

    turns out the channel was set to phono, not line *facepalm*

    On Labor Day I was so drunk I kept dropping the needle on deck 1 and would reach for deck 2 only to find that the needle was off the record of deck 1. I thought I was so drunk that I was bumping the turntable causing the needle to fall off the record. It took 3 more try's to realise that I had my turntable on reverse.

    Im sure we've all done a mix and then taken the needle off the wrong deck?

    Ive pressed stop on the playing deck on traktor before too. All you can do is put your hands up and laugh at yourself.
