Mike Vad's Setup: back again for the very first time
I started out not knowing too much about DJing, so I started w/ the S4 mk1. Played a few places w/ it. Loved it. The Rane is the club's. I'm using it here b/c the S4 doesn't have XLR outs.
Decided to start adding more pieces as I figured out midi mapping and such Maschine is in midi mode mapped to one shot fx, and the nanokontrol mapped to macro chained fx:
More recently I've been mixing some deeper music, so I didn't need so much custom midi mapped stuff for fx, so I decided to splurge a bit and traded in the S4 for a xone 92 rotary, 2 X1s, an audio 8, and audio 2. I also realized that i was completely underutilizing maschine in a live setting if I was only using midi mode.
Sorry about the poor picture quality. My phone kinda sucks
Looks sweet. Is that that ball in cup game on your window sil?
2x CDJ 800mk2 // A&H Xone: 22 // Kontrol X1 // M-Audio BX5 Studio Monitors // 2011 Macbook // NI Audio 10 w/ TSP 2.6.2 // Pioneer HDJ 500-K // Novation LaunchkeyMini // Ableton Live 9
Great setup you've got there, love the rotary 92!
love the set up! How do you use the maschine in your workflow?
That is indeed the cup and ball game. A friend of mine had one, and let me have a go on it. It's a very addictive, very useless hobby

I really only use it if I play music that has a lot of space between the sounds, like deep house or tech house, otherwise it gets too busy. It's really a small part of my mixing workflow and it takes up a lot of space, so I'm debating not gigging w/ it anymore. The midi clock also occasionally drifts out of sync, and I am constantly nudging tracks to get them back in.
