    Who is planning on going to the DJ Expo in Atlantic City?

    Sorry I missed the inquiry comments about the S1 Pro being on sale. I have not been apprised of any forthcoming sale yet. My personal opinion is that the S1 is so new, it will not be included in a sale this soon. However, the Mother Ship has a mind of her own and anything is possible. Also...

    New camera

    I have a Canon 60D (body only) for sale, recently tweaked and peaked by Canon service (the hot shoe came loose so in it went for fixing). Is anyone interested? Superb video camera. I'm buying a used low shutter count Canon 5D Mk II. My first adventure into full frame digital. It's the best...

    External Hard Drives

    As I am 99% .mp4 video, latency is my biggest concern followed closely by storage space. Laptops are my choice of media control and storage of which there are four. 1) DELL with Win7 and three internal 2tb Samsung SSDs; 2) ASUS with Win10, with one internal 1tb M.2 SSD and two internal 2tb...

    ...every time

    Part of my handout prior to owning the L1 systems (those were the 502 A-B-C systems in the picture) All audio complaints disappeared... all of them, so for over 12 years, I have not had to deal with these kinds of issues. ........................DON'T DO THIS! ........................

    Is a $1,200 to $1,600 for a 5 to 6 hour Wedding DJ a Low End Budget DJ?

    My prices are on my web site. Those prices reflect my material, labor, production, personal needs, insurances, income taxes, home/office, and retirement. That leaves about $1.50 pure greedy profit per show. Am I a bad person hoarding all that wealth?

    Screen for projector..what's good?

    Big and easy and quality just doesn't mix. I've found a 65" monitor is easier to transport, mount, and connect then is my 110" portable. You might also find a 3200-lumen projector may let you down (visually) in any lighting condition other than almost dark. My 5000-lumen Optima and 110" screen...

    Sorry. I meant a link to a page where one can make a purchase of whatever they have available for sale. A link to the store.

    DO you have a link to these? I need some clever backdrops for video conferencing and replies to cold call/email prospects.

    I require a contract for every event... period, even a freebee. If it's a recurring event, the dates are specified in the contract. If there is no contract signing payment being required, it is still listed as zero. Everybody has different liability coverage companies. Mine requires a...

    Weddings Anyone else noticing this trend?

    I agree that the money to be made is definitely in the production package (e.g. all that you mentioned Master Taso) plus multiple screens on well decorated and lighted totems/crank stands/arches, et al. Here's where I cop out. I've never done a multiple screen presentation, nor used...

    Weddings Anyone else noticing this trend?

    It's the only media I use and although there's a small demand, it's one of those features that need to be explained and the benefits of it. Just as in the Golden Years of Mobile DJ, when start-up costs were the first weeding out step of the masses trying for the quick buck, obtaining a...

    Do you dance?

    I have learned almost all the domestic dances, and ethnicities included. Not a put down because I know and do dance, but it has befuddled me my whole career why not one client has ever asked if I know how to dance. They have asked if I come out from behind the booth and dance which almost all...

    Tri-beam lights

    Never fired any top down. My basic thought on top-down lighting is without some floating particulate in the air off which light can reflect and refract, the results are more along the lines of a glorified Christmas tree.

    Tell me the story of the forum?!

    Big Dan has maintained a near crime-free city here with the aid of some excellent cops, um, I mean mods. I have no idea how long I've been a member but I do have an impressive array of battle ribbons. The $1,200.00 War. The Bose War(s). The Digital vs Vinyl War. The "Gotta Be A Real Lawyer"...

    Tri-beam lights

    They are really bright and dramatic. Getting them to be as versatile as they can be requires a solid knowledge of DMX. I have 6 and use them for effects behind me.

    So who is playing tomorrow night?

    Maybe is my advanced chronological state, but being booked on NYE, as compared to snuggling with my wife, the pups, and wine (her) or martini (me)., became such a pain in the hiney, either working and/or attending, I earned 35 or more of those NYE Purple Hearts. My recent services to drunken...
