      Aye thats the point instead of them sounding shit and destroying the rig they just sound gash.

      Oh I agree, good idea but realisticly I wouldn’t expect someone to hire the soundsystem again if I made their dj’s use a mixer with no eq.

        I dont hire my rig anymore Bio
        I got fed up of trying to get more than ยฃ5 an hour for it :you_crazy:you_crazy:you_crazy – i wont even pack it for that kind of money [esp as it usually comes with live band work which is a total pain in the nuts WRT sound checks and getting the musicians to do one]

        Down here they all think they can do the sound engineers job better themselves and dont see why they should pay to hire a half decent rig when they can link up their guitar amps and that does the same job dunnit? :you_crazy:you_crazy:you_crazy

          the bandridge is kept for when my rig is out and playing dance music and the dj cant be trusted to not fiddle excessively with the eqs – if they were paying to hire my rig it might be a little different ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Didn’t you know that if you play an instrument or mix records then you are automatically a fully qualified and experienced sound engineer?

              :laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at: they certainly think so…until it goes wrong and then they expect me to fix it :laugh_at::laugh_at:without actually doing any of the stuff i consider essential of course like sound checks, stereo image adjustment, etc etc etc

              used to do my head in – nowadays i keep my rig for dance music :bounce_fl:bounce_fl:bounce_fl:bounce_fl

                we have an old dinasour called a bandridge – that one is as tough as old boots too [have never seen another or found anyone who had one]

                still going 12 years on raaaraaaraaaraaa but we use a djm600 these days [unless the dj has annoyed me :wink:]

                Thought yours was a 500 Raj???

                  could well be a 500 – it the mostly bombproof one and i never see it unless i am using it and then only the flashing green [not red!] lights

                  :laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at:

                  and thats when i can see it :groucho:

                      goes to show how much attention i was paying to it :laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at:

                      its mostly wasted on me anyway – dont use the eqs, rarely use the effects, etc etc but i do like the xlr outputs
                      /me slavers over balanced line outputs :laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at::laugh_at:

                        Yup i know thats why i got this off a mate.. http://www.allen-heath.com/UK/xone464.asp

                        It needs some TLC its had a bit of a hard life but i’ll restore it to its former glory.. gonna be great for all the live gear… he wanted it out the way coz he kept trippin over it.. haha.. so gave it away to someone who would love it more than him.. coz he’s got some dodgy digital mixer now…

                                                      14 years is a ripe old age. Good ole technics!
