    So. This is my full setup, except instead of the bar, I usually have two cans.
    So we have:
    Claw (tri) light, bar (or cans) but the bar is AMAZING! , a red green laser in the one unit. And a strobe on the left on the table.

    I also have my two pa speakers, sub underneath the table, and grooupies
    Oh and me :P

    Edit: HOW COULD I FORGET MY SMOKE MACHINE!?! . That also.

    I don't have pictures, but I'll try and get some on NYE. I'm Running a pair of American DJ megabar 50's and a pair of Chauvet Q-Spot 260's. It's minimal, but looks very classy, as it's simple... though I could always use a couple more intelligent lights. That being said...

    KEEP IT SIMPLE!
    Granted, if your budget doesn't allow, do what you can, but tons of guys make the mistake of getting a bunch of budget lighting. For a little more than you spend on 6 cheap lights, you can get a couple of really good intelligent lighting fixtures (scanners or moving heads). 2 of those and a few wash lights are always going to look better than a truss full of effect lights. A properly DMX programmed show looks classy and tasteful, while effect lighting generally looks like someone vomited a truck full of skittles all over the dance floor in the form of light.

    I have one strobe that I take to most of my parties. The special thing about it is that I've modifed it to accept the fader-start action from the mixer xfader.
    Then I cut-trigger strobe in a different rythm.
    Many photons have died to bring you this information.

    HOW!?! Would be very interested in a build log or instructions for something like that. I need a controller of mine, but I'm too stingy to buy one.


    @kave, it was an 18th birthday party, but I think the girls on the right are just short :P
