    Default Ozei's setup

    I started DJ'ing from scratch about two years ago. With nothing to play with, I bought Numark Mixtrack and Lexicon Alpha USB-interface. With Alpha hooked up to my JVC BoomBlaster and some cheap headset to my computer sound card, and Traktor LE loaded on my shi**y laptop, I was rockin... trainwrecking all over my one room apartment.


    My beloved Mixtrack

    Two different sound cards caused some troubles; first of all, the Alpha was really bad quality (volume knob didn't affect both stereo channels in the same way) and different sound cards drifted out of sync after a while (yea...).

    Big improvement was when I picked up a pair of monitors, Behringer B2030A Truths. For the price they are propably the best piece of studio speakers there are; clear sound with punchy bass.

    So then, last christmas, my girlfriend gave me NI Komplete Audio 6 and I was all like
    We also moved together and now we have this HUGE apartment and I got my own corner for all my stuff.


    Komplete Audio 6 & B2030A Truth

    Then, few months back, I bought Traktor Kontrol F1. I don't really use it for anything groundbreaking, mostly launch some complimentary loops and samples out of there. Neat piece of hardware and great build quality, though.


    My current stuff


    My corner in our apartment


    And yes, I am mostly a bedroom DJ. I have done a couple of "gigs" for local sports club, playing at their events (and it's been great for everyone), but really nothing that would have paid me some money. At the moment this is my beloved hobby, but maybe in the future...

    Speaking of future; I'm selling my Mixtrack (hurts a bit, though, it has served faithfully) and I'm waiting for my new gear to arrive... Not telling what, at least not yet But more controllerism, I promise

    Edit: Tried to fix the pics, derpbox is a new thing for me...

    Welcome. Mate you need to fix your pics, with dropbox you need to post the image url, not the actual link. tags are correct but you need to choose the "copy public link" option

    Does it work now? Because I saw the pics even previously (and there is no "copy public link" option )

    This derpbox thing is so new to me...

    Thanks Yes they are stickers, got a bunch of different kinds of them when I bought the F1, and those round ones were just perfect for the jog wheels.

    SETUP UPDATE

    Got my new gear!

    (Pics, so did happen)



    It's goodbye mixtrack, but now it has been replaced with CMD MM-1 for all mixing needs and X1 Mk2 for effects & transport. Almost needless to say, but I'm really satisfied with much greater feature set and increased mobility these units offer.

    Also got Traktor Kontrol case and Magma KNTRL RMX case. The latter is ment for Pioneer Rmx-1000 but is perfect for MM-1 too.

    Well, the sound is clear and truthful (pun semi-intended). Of course without a subwoofer lowest frequencies are left out, but with reasonable volumes (i.e. ones you can use comfortable when in front of them) there's nice, punchy bass also. Truth's also provide some tweaking options for the sound; I've set high freqs to -2dB as personal preference (and for room related reasons), but you get also some settings for bass. The bigger B2031A Truths give even more tweaks if I recall correctly.

    (Disclaimer thingy: ) I'm not really expert when it comes to monitors (these are the only ones I've had), but for the price I've been more than satisfied.
