    Default Liquid Proofing

    So has anyone used NeverWet or other liquid repelling sprays on their equipment before? I was thinking about it since I have my first actual college party coming up soon. I wouldn't want to carelessly spray or waste money on the stuff

    Yea I'm looking into what you said and I'm saying a short life span. Definitely not a few minutes but not a long lasting spray. It also doesn't look good on dark materials, one of which is my S4

    I am not sure if they have ever done a DJ controller or large piece of equipment but I do remember this company announcing their services for phones a few years back. They may be willing to try it out if you contact them.

    Not sure it's worth trying to coat a controller in these products. I've done quite a few college parties and as long as you keep an eye on people with drinks, you should be OK.

    Just make sure you're running a backup laptop. If someone spills a drink on your laptop or controller, just shut it off right away and switch to your backup.

    I've avoided spillage by being a dick with drinks around my gear I've pushed people away and physically removed them and their drinks... If drinks are by my gear they meet the trash

    No amount of waterproofing is gonna protect your controller if someone spills a whole glass of beer inside it.
    Something will get damaged. It's fine on a smart phone but a wholly different proposition on something that has moving parts such as faders.

    Just do your best to avoid it happening - that's all you can do.
