    What percentage do you require from a client for a retainer?

    I moved to 30% a few years ago. Seems to work out well.

    Another dead Rock n Roller

    You are right, it does depend on your setup and since my setup usually involves a table it does work for me. If you do not mind me asking what does your "non-standard, distinctive no table set-up" look like?

    Another dead Rock n Roller

    A huge advantage of the RNR over the magliner is being able to fold it up and hide it under my 4 ft table

    Another dead Rock n Roller

    Caught this today; when I looked down and saw the wheel at about 10 degree tilt. Clearly poor welding. The cart is 3 years old this month. Gonna take it a welder. Just hope it makes it through the load out tonight. I only have about 220 lbs on it; less than half the capacity. Disappointed; but...

    PrimeCuts Closing Permanently December 31st

    So since PrimeCuts closed I moved to Promo Only... found out you do not get the new releases as fast. A lot of time I would have songs before they became mainstream hits... Not Anymore...

    Ripping Karaoke mp3+cdg pair to an UNZIPPED folder

    Interesting. I use Virtual DJ and for years used paired (mp3 + cdg) files. About 6 months ago I decided to zip the pairs into a .zip file and let the Virtual DJ worry about the overhead of unzipping at time of play. I have used Power Karaoke (Power Karaoke Software To Burn, Create, Play &...

    I bought a couple of new Speaker Stands to replace a pair of old ones

    I hope you have better than luck with the Rockville stands than I did. I purchased a set about 5 years ago and after 7 months got rid of them completely. Hopefully they have improved their product during that time. Rockville Stands - (https://ourdjtalk.com/threads/rockville-stands.43059/)

    Silent disco?

    I am friends with a DJ in my area who does this regularly. I am not sure how much he spent on the entire setup (his is 4 channels ; sometimes he runs all 4 himself; sometimes he has 3 other DJ's with him). He is making it work! He does silent discos at different clubs; he does silent yoga in...

    Wireless patch recommendations for active speaker or second mixer needed

    Not a bad idea. I have not looked for an "injector". You are correct I am mapping my audio to the HDMI Port.

    Wireless patch recommendations for active speaker or second mixer needed

    I do still have the Alto and as stated used it a "handful of times" with no known issues. All times the transmitter was mounted on a light stand and the receiver directly on a remote speaker. I will probably consider selling it though now that the new solution cover audio and video and at better...

    Wireless patch recommendations for active speaker or second mixer needed

    I purchased and used the Alto wireless system a handful of times; but never transmitted more than about 75ft with it. I recently was hired by a couple who wanted not only sound; but video (slideshow) shown in the main ballroom where I would be setup at and a secondary room at the venue. The...

    Small Setup

    Backup amp for the smaller system cam in today. Got it mounted in it's case and will travel wherever the smaller system pictured above goes. Really happy with the fit of the case. Just enough to hold the power cable and an extra set of cable to run from the mixer to the amp. It can also function...

    Impressive Battery Life

    The newer models have the switch recessed. The first 10 I ordered are like you mentioned, then I ordered 2 more and they had the recessed switch. I use the Chauvet bags to pack them and have always been concerned; but, never had an issue.

    Impressive Battery Life

    Good Point, the last time I tested mixed colors I only got about 12 hours. I just left them on the last color I used with them. Once they charge back up I will conduct another test with 2 colors.
