Hello everyone! Sorry if this has been posted about before. I searched but only found topics about buying cases that fit the X1. My question is a little different, but first some explaining. I use 2 CDJs w/ timecode, external mixer, and an X1 for FX. For me to be able to offer the best performance I need to have my Kontrol X1 right next to the mixer (either left or right side). I use the X1 just as an FX controller and I use the FX in really close conjunction with my EQ levels. Most of the time I am filtering, delaying, etc. at the same time that I am removing or exaggerating some frequencies. It creates a smoother transition and works really great for build ups and things like that. Lately though, I've faced a problem that may seem small to some but I've found that for me it creates a huge obstacle. I go to the gig and when I get to the setup almost every time the equipment is inside a flight case. If I'm the first one to go up it's not a problem. I simply remove one of the CDJs, and put my X1 right next to the mixer. The problem is that sometimes I'm not the first and people get weirded out if I start removing equipment from the case. So if you have the same setup as me my question to you is:
What do you do or where do you place your X1 when the setup is inside a flight case and you can't remove anything?
A small note about this is that I also place my laptop off to the side of the entire flight case. That isn't a problem since I don't need to be close to the laptop. The X1, on the other hand, really needs to be side by side with the mixer. I hope some of you have an answer to this, as it is driving me crazy. I tried once to have the X1 at the bottom of the case but I ended up dropping it, hitting the play/pause button and the silence came LOL. Throw in your two cents into this, hope to get some answers. Cheers!
