    Default First gigs with my S4

    This saturday I had my first 2 gigs with my S4, good test as I had to move between 2 venues in the middle of the night.

    I carried the beast in a trolley, with some foam and air plastics.

    The first gig of the night was in a small venue, I was doing the warmup so I had luckily lot of time to set up. we had to add a second table for the S4 'cause there weren't enough room for it in the booth. when I plugged it in, I encounter for the first time the jog wheel problems, the phase was going insane and the track wasn't playing, without even touching the platter.
    I just recalibrate and it was ok, I think it's due to the trolley vibrations when carrying it on old pavements.

    Second gig, even if I had to re-carry it on old pavements and stuffs, I haven't had to recalibrate twice, and everything was ok, enough room for my S4 so that was really comfortable.

    The thing I noticed is that with the stress I haven't used extended features of the S4, only basic, I even forgot to use the built in browser and did all my tracks selections with my mouse and keyboard, I think that'll come with time ^^.

    Glad it went well. Once you get more comfortable with the built in controls it'll just come as second nature.
