    What year do you believe will be your last year as a DJ working events?

    This is what I was told too, so I was stuck with their modem until I moved off their cable box services entirely.

    Lol, I don't think Bob has made an appearance on these boards in at least 6-7 years.

    YouTube TV is live tv though, with an unlimited DVR that works in any room in the house. I'd at least look at the channel lineup and see if you'd be missing anything.

    Are you paying for a bunch of box rentals? I've got 500Gb up and down from Verizon at $113 a month, and then I use streaming services. Even to replace your TV service with something like YouTube TV would be 65 per month, but you're not paying for all the stupid box and DVR fees.

    I think that's true right now, but it doesn't have to be. Totally understandable if that's where you're at on it. If you simply want to stay in the lane you're in, that's fine. But with adjustments, I think you could attract a different clientele.

    What year do you believe will be your last year as a DJ working events?

    I've seen you post on these boards for a bunch of years. There have long been indicators in your posts that there is something in your process/product that needs to be adjusted. Business shouldn't be dropping off like that from year to year if you're offering a product that people want. Work...

    What year do you believe will be your last year as a DJ working events?

    Anytime these discussions come up, it's really difficult to know what people mean by this. Whether it's feasible as a full time job starts by understanding earnings requirements or goals for an individual. Throwing loose numbers out... I'd estimate if you're trying to make $40-$100K as a full...

    What year do you believe will be your last year as a DJ working events?

    This is something I've been thinking about a decent amount recently with my new venture. I turn 36 this summer, and in my head 40 has been my target to wind down to a much lower impact version of my DJ business. I'm not sure I'll ever stop entirely, but I don't see myself wanting to keep my...

    A Mix-worthy lighting system

    I still remember the first time I saw the real Blisslight at 40/40 in Atlantic City during the DJ Expo. Most people ended up using the super cheap ones with the crappy looking star fields that didn't have that same independent movement effect to them. But it definitely had the wow factor when it...

    What are your plans this year moving forward for your DJ business?

    I will when it's my turn. I'm not in a high risk category, but when I can, I will.

    What are your plans this year moving forward for your DJ business?

    Yeah, I'm not going to stop DJing for the time being. Thankfully I'm not needing to put a ton of time into marketing the DJ work right now. The work I do have is all basically from referrals. And I have gigs into 2022 already at this point. I won't necessarily be trying to make it bigger...

    What are your plans this year moving forward for your DJ business?

    I left my day job at the end of 2020 to start a new company with a partner. I'll certainly continue to DJ the gigs I have booked, but my focus this year is getting that business off the ground and stable.

    Rane One Controller

    I think they've got a great product with this. I love that the booth output is XLR instead of 1/4 inch. And I've been waiting for a controller to add the effects paddles like the S9, S11, and Rane 72 have. I'm not trying to upgrade anything right now, but this is a very cool piece of tech.

    Another off topic thread.

    This is the current equivalent of the printer and scanner I have: https://www.amazon.com/Canon-Color-imageCLASS-MF644Cdw-Wireless/dp/B07QK2KDYC?ref_=ast_sto_dp I doubt you're going to buy that one, but it is a good printer. I think it's more likely you get one for $99-$150 that is made poorly...

    New DMX Controller coming this Year

    This thing looks dope. From the specs I'm expecting it to be pretty expensive. But I like that it doesn't run off of a laptop. SoundSwitch is a pretty good solution, but getting on the fly control of it is complicated. This might be a nice alternative.

    Anyone get any DJ related stuff for Christmas?

    It is a Breedlove guitar. My wife bought it used, but it is like-new. My friends that know about guitars seem to like the brand, but I had never heard of it until she gave it to me.

    Budget mixer choice

    If you are using another device to power serato, that's the equivalent of Steve's suggestion. You're basically just using the Rane as analog. It's a well built mixer. It'll work well like that.

    Budget mixer choice

    That's how I used my 57 until I bought the S9. Just like any other analog mixer with the SL2 driving the Serato.

    It's used. Call it $1000 and I'll cover the shipping :)

    Budget mixer choice

    https://serato.com/latest/blog/16317/serato-dj-q-and-a-session Scratch Live hasn't been supported since 2015. If you find a version of it, it might still run. But Scratch Live won't run on any modern operating system that I know of. Serato DJ is the current Serato product, which that mixer...

    Budget mixer choice

    Are you trying to use that mixer to run Serato DJ? Or an old copy of Scratch live? It won't run the modern versions of Serato on that machine.
