I heard they got a new mixer a few months back. Everytime im there i always forget to take a look and well, im curious and bored.

So who knows what they got?

Thanks,
Jonny

A friend of mine was supposed to spin back there a while back but once he saw the mixer he refused. Apparently only one of the channels had a high, mid and a low. What the fuck?

its like some of the community radio stations on TO: "10,000 watts of broadcast sound!" (out of the left channel only)

Being one of the many train wreck dj's from the back room ;) I think it would be best to explain that the actual setup of the speakers in the room is what causes the trainwrecks. Before they moved the deks to their present postion, the bassbins to the right(if you are looking at the dj booth), pointed right at the booth.

The bass from the bins takes a bit longer to feed thru the speaker, than what a person hears in thier headphones and from the monitor, thus creating a sweet echo. Not to mention the fact that it can sometimes get so loud that you can't even hear the monitors, or what's coming out of the headphones.

It's something that takes a bit longer than a gig every couple of months to get used to.

They upgraded the mixer, which was sweet, but the problem still remains. We spun the back room after they moved the booth, but they did'nt have a monitor set up that nite. That was pleasant.

Train wreck sounds so harsh, can't we just call it a boo-boo?

It's a Denon mixer. Comfort Zone has one too. You can hear the decrease in sound quality over that old Rane. The Rane rocked for crispness ... but no EQ sucks.

I would have loved to see EQ needing DJs play the Guv main room ... no EQ at all. :)

Good post Fleaflo!

I have refused to play back there due to the set up also!

Why purposely make myself sound shitty? (no thanks!)

Actually one very drunken time while trying to see what label some track was on i lifted the needle, not realizing that the track was still playing :eek:

People looked at me in horror, so I had to introduce myself as Luke Fair to everyone as I left the room!

hey what's this about no eq at the guvernment? what do they have, a urei or something? if you want really high end sound, it's always best to have as little processing in between the needle and the speakers, but i have no idea how you'd mix the kind of stuff they play at the guv without individual eqs. disco is one thing, but trance?
