    Club:

    Audio 6, Control Records/CDs, Needles, X1, Laptop, Spare cables, Charger, USB Flashlight, 2 x USB sticks loaded with tunes, headphones, spare headphones, cd wallet, power board


    Bar
    DDJ T1 (Controller), CD Wallet, Laptop, charger, usb flashlight, headphones, spare headphones, spare cables, power board, small controller stand I built so it fits on top of the crappy cdjs and mixer they have


    House Party
    Controller + Laptop, charger, headphones (only 1 set), cables, power board


    Generally.... Ideally I'd take nothing but USB sticks to a house party, but thats if they have no gear already

    Sorry to go off topic, but what do you use the MPK mini for? I have a similar setup (S2, x1, MPK mini) and i have never been able to figure out how to incorporate it, every time I think of a way to map it I don't get past the pads.

    Other then the usuals I always bring velcro strips and gaffers tape. These two really help with wire management and also making sure all extension and audio cables are flat on the ground.

    Club
    Bar
    House party


    I've seen a good amount of djs on youtube like at local clubs that bring 2 laptops and there current setup
    bar i would assume would be just controller and maybe a midi fighter
    and a house party just controller
    So...What do you do?
    Club = most of the larger clubs in the area have installed Tech1200's or CDJ1000. If that is the case, I just bring a soundcard, my laptop, control CDs or vinyl and a back up source either CDs or thumb drive. If they don't have those, I bring my Denon DNS3700 and DNX1600 mixer. I never bring a controller at a club gig. Nothing worse than having dead air if things crap out. I would like to be able to switch to CDs if laptop fails. If CDJs fail I go internal mode on Laptop.

    Bars = see above

    House parties = I don't DJ house parties. I do mainly Corp events for my mobile gigs when I do pick up any mobile work. I am kinda picky for about those. For that I bring a Denon DNMC600(NS6 for a back up), Behringer EP4000 Amp, GTD Audio wireless mic all in a slant combo rack flight case. 2 EV ELX15 and 2EV ELX18s speakers, Truss, various Chauvet lights. I also bring a extra laptop to run light and also is my back up for the main laptop.
    1 Denon DNX1600, 2 Technics SL1200MKII, 1 Pioneer DDJ SX, 1 Reloop Terminal Mix2, 1 MBP running VDJ/Traktor/Serato SL/DJ

    Pads and knobs control effects, Keys are mapped to switch from 2 decks to 2 decks + Samples, load different effects presets at the same time, independent freeze effect. One key is a modifier to make the knobs controlling individual volume of the sample decks. Also play, sync, filter...you can go all crazy with the MPK man. It's always work in progress, one day I will be satisfied with my mapping and will have more time to improve it....

    Sounds like a fun way to spin, probably a good bit confusing from time to time though
