    Default Xone: DB4- the official unofficial thread

    (former thread title Xone: DB4- convince me not to sell off my possessions and drain my bank account)


    I mean it's just a mixer, nothing I should sell my S4 and some other expensive possessions for and drain my bank account completely for... right?

    I am having a hard time with this decision. I know it won't make me a better DJ, yet it gives me the urge to make irrational spending decisions. Please talk me out of it.

    You can get a midifighter for around $100-$200 and have even more fun with the equipment you already have?
    My equipment: Numark Omnicontrol Midi Controller, Traktor Pro (lol pro setup right?)

    It will make you happy for a bit but the way shit is going something else will come out that'll make you hungry for more.

    Im a pioneer fanboy and I convinced myself if be happy with a second hand 800... I'm not really. I want a 900.

    Half the time I just want to gloat on this forum about my set up.

    The reality is I just like mixing two good tunes together and can certainly do thy with my set up.

    Just know that it's RGAS eating you up and will probably do that forever.

    Think of yourself as an addict. There is no final hit, each bit hit just makes you want an even bigger hit

    Stop kidding yourself. Sell it all and buy the DB4 and maybe a couple cases of Ramen noodles.

    Yeah I feel you. I have a feeling the DB4 will still be top notch for the next 2-3 years at least which is why part of me is saying I want to get it now so I can get some mileage out of it while it still the most cutting edge unit out there, and with the K2s coming out well.... I'm also considering going the used DJM-800/Audio 8 route. I miss having a real mixer more than anything.

    Oh the db4 is super sick and yeah it'll last you a long while no doubt.

    I really wanted decks and a mixer back too. I sold em a while back and was happy with my vci. I come into some decent regular work and so just bought the 800, x1 another sl1200 and tsp2. (set up pics in my sig)

    That's a fair emount of coin. Are my mixes any better to the outside world?

    Nope

    I enjoy using it all though but it hasn't really stopped me craving more gear at all.

    Already craving the vci400se ean golden edition with mapping

    this is a common problem amongst many men. In my country it's called "prylbög"
    which can be translated to gay guy with cravings or more like an obsession to allways have the best equipment, this ranges from electronics to cars.
    I am living like my statement says above, although I worked it out buying second hand and try being smart doing business so I know I can get significant sum of money back easy, this way I can change stuff around me often, which gives me like a kick of happiness, although the lesser money involved in the trade the lesser joyrush..
