    Default Owned by the BASS

    Hey, so last Saturday In Bloom happened which was a rave I organized. About 500 people showed up and everything went off pretty much perfectly. I played at 12 and I cued up my first track then BOOM, the track keep on not staying in sync and moving slightly. This happened throughout my set with both decks of my VCI-100. I had to keep on pressing sync and it kept on fucking me over. I guess the crowd didn't really notice but it's such a let down to not perform at your highest level because of problems with your hardware. I came to the conclusion that the bass was rattling the jog wheels, thus moving the tracks. Does that sound right to you guys? What can I do to make sure this doesn't happen again?

    Thanks, MiishMash.

    yeah heavy vibrations will rattle them. try putting a bit of foam (or similar) under them for absorbing the shakes?

    That sucks! What was the booth/table set up on?
    Do you think foam under the conrtoller would have helped?

    anything to absorb the vibrations, can't find it right now, but there was a thing for turntables, cross shaped and sat under each foot, foam filled

    Never tried these, but i don't think they'd work with a vci.

    or if they're slowly spinning in one direction..just pitch it the opposite way to counter it. i guess.

    in a pinch you can probably wedge a bit of tissue/paper(napkin would be a good choice and bars/clubs will have them) under the edge of the platter to stop it moving.
