    Apologies for the formatting, it didnt like being cut and pasted from works..

    Quick question…

    Will this mixer http://www.djkit.co.uk/product.php?id=419&cat=98

    (6 channel)

    Do the job?
    I was planning to have independant mixers on both sets of decks and then running them through this central mixer.
    This would mean I can also then plug in mic’s, laptops etc too
    And obviously crossfade between both sets of decks.
    Or am I mad and this is impossible?

    Raj-
    I should have explained myself better in the first post, Im basically being paid in equipment to do it, ive been given approx £300 to spend on what I want. As im trying to get some of my own tracks down at the moment and am not good enough at cubase im gonna buy a digital four track:

    http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=68584

    And some other bits:

    http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/72718

    http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/options.php?id=67669

    And then just some headphones and a new mic.

    I should be able to plug the fourtrack straight into the powered moniters eh?

    Thanks in advance for the help guys!

    Also there is the fact that it will have to meet all hospital safety requirements.

    I found this website when I was doing some research for a mate’s community radio station, they’re a non-profit organisation that specialise in setting up community radio stations and giving advice to people like yourself who are interested in starting out. They have some extremely reasonable equipment packages on there too in the “what we do” section of the site, and explain what all the gear does and why you might need it.

    http://radioactive.org.uk/home.htm

    Cool, ill suggest it, thanks for the mic and mixer tip raj, forgot about that.

    Ill give a complete run down of everything ive suggested at some point..

    I think a small mixing desk would be a useful addition to this list as you have only listed one amp apart from the guitar amp so I assume it would all be sharing the same amp. If you have a mixing desk you have a wider choice of recording equipment [not tied to a digital 4 track] It will save you plugging and unplugging things endlessly.

    I like a soundcraft M8 personally as its very good as well as having 8 mono and 4 stereo channels on it. Its fairly simple to use and will allow you to blend all the inputs into one output for recording purposes. Without a desk recording will be a pain in the nuts IMO as you have more than 4 potential inputs you may want to use.

    If you get the right dj mixer you may not need to get two separate ones as the cdjs and the decks could all use the same mixer [need something with 2 phono and 2 cd channels [or switches which allow you to swap input signals]] – this could be a useful saving. Remember that djs will need headphones too 😉

    Remember to budget for cables to connect all this stuff together too. Plus some spares 😉 as there is nothing worse than not having a spare cable when you need one [the option is to be good with a soldering iron]

    You havent listed microphones either – are you planning to have some? You will need voice . I like the sm-58 or sennheiser E series for general work – they are very versatile. You can get condenser mics for overhead pickups but you can use the sm-58/e series at a pinch. You will need mike stands with shock mounts to go with your mics too. When you are micing up the mixing desk will be a god send to you.

    Regarding soundproofing describe the room to us and we can recommend soundproofing to you if you want some ideas 😉

    My flow of ideas has dried up just now – will get back to this later.

    Thanks a lot Raj, will get back to this properly when I can….

    Yeah shes awre of all that, she is the head psychiatrist at the DDU, shes used to junkies lol

    All the equipment would be in a locked up room and only be open for staffed sessions/lessons.

    Ive told her it will all need to be in flight cases and be secured to the furniture somehow…

    I’m a red meat lover of the highest order but allthe food I get is from a local butchers who is in turn supplied by friends of my mum so I know that the food I’m eating is not only good but organic and humanely sourced.

    To be fair I think vegetarians and vegans have more to answer for than meat eaters. They are responsible for large ammounts of the deforestation of the amazon to grow soya, even more so than McDonalds, and the ultra fickle food miles thing is a crock of shit as well.

    I mean people who were a year ago buying organic veg to make themselves feel better are now only buying organic local veg. So all the foreign farmers who rely on selling their wares to supermarkets etc to survive started going organic and now we don’t want it because its come from too far away. Its cost them too much to produce to sell to the locals and make any money and they can’t sell it to us now so they are fucked.

    I only eat good food. I buy only organic fruit and veg and top quality meat but that is nothing to do with my conscience. It is to do with the quality of the product.

    Anyhow heres a nice wee article on the subject that might make you think a bit about how you choose where your food should come from.

    http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php?/site/article/4010/

    (p.s last time I was ina McDonalds I was “detained” for pouring a bucket of ming all over the floor and am now banned from all McDonalds in the UK so don’t get me wrong I think fast food chains are bastards)

    I wasnt questioning your ethics, maybe I just took it the wrong way.
    Im not vegan or vegetarian but i am coeliac which complicates my diet somewhat

    If I lived on a farm I would grow all my own food, rear and slaughter my animals, unfortunately I live in the East End of London and have to gat my veg delivered by the box (local co-op) and trust my butcher when he says his meat is free range etc

    Its a totally fucked up system, flying in planes of bananas from uganda and as for things like coffee…. sourced from multiple countries/growers/farmers, mixed to be packaged up in a beautiful litlle packet on the shelf in tescos its all WRONG!
