    Default What DJ gear to get for $75? Gear wishlist ideas please! What would you want?

    So I'm in a secret santa with a $75 limit. I have a lot of nice gear already and am wondering what small item or items I might want that I normally owuldn't think of for around $75.

    My current setup:
    Xone: 4D with Traktor Scratch Pro
    4 CDJ1000 MK3s (soon to downsize to 2 and get a technics pair, I have ortofons already)
    KRK Rokkit 8 monitors with 10s subwoofer
    Uberstand, sefour CDJ stand, thinkpad t61p

    So that's my setup and I'm wondering what fun/useful item(s) I could get for $75. Most gear I would want is $100+ so I'm wondering if there are any inexpensive things a digital and CD/vinyl DJ like myself might want. Thanks for any ideas!

    hmmmm, who are you buying for, a kid? or someone who has access to things like ableton?

    I love my akai lpd8, even though I had some issues with it early on (stupid win7 issue though). If this person is a percussionist, it also works great for its intended purpose (portable drum pad). The Key version of the akai also feels really good, but I really just wanted some pad to launch cuepoints.

    what type of gear does this person have already?

    What about any of the nano controllers from korg or akai. They cost around 60 each.

    I have the korg nano pad and I'm in love with it. 8 pads, one xy controller that sends 3 different cc messages, and 4 scenes for all your configuration needs.

    This is my wishlist, lol. I don't know what I want for myself in that price range.

    I thought the korgs and akais were $100, no? Let me see how much the DIY arcade midi pad costs, if that is under 100 it would be sweet.

    Any korg controller... maybe the nanokontrol for fx control?

    Failing that, 500 blank cds and a sharpie.
