Height really does matter..


So referring back to my DJ Table that I originally put together. I didn’t have it at the height normal set ups would be. And trust me it really does make a difference. Since I had the desks before I put the whole thing together I didn’t want to waste it and but a whole new set of expedites and what not for the project. So I told myself I was just going to adjust it later on. Well as my back started to hurt more I decided to finally adjust the height. So what I did was I framed out a mini stage for my desk/sey-up to rest on. With some 2×4’s and some plywood it raised my set up 4″, the right height for me. Now I could have spent the extra time to paint it and make it all nice but I got lazy. This set up also works well for storage, so that it keeps all my stuff off the floor and away from my two dogs.

Now if you happen to have a regular folding “banquet” table I may have a tip that I’ve seen used at all the weddings I’ve done. All the caterers do it and it works. I’d recommend some strengthening but if you’re using a controller you won’t have to worry too much about shaking.

Super Knobs and the S4



Got to personalizing my S4 with the DJ Tech Tools Super Knobs. They feel and look great with the S4, but do get a little pricy. However, if you are into customizing and making your S4 your very own I would definitely recommend getting a few of these. They are definitely more than just looks they are functional as well. Installation on the S4 is a little difficult. Some come off easily while many took some extra effort. If you still can’t manage to wiggle them off I would recommend taping a small thing flathead or knife with some electrical tape or gaffers and pry the knobs off from the bottom. (Note: do this at your own risk. I am not responsible if you scratch or damage your controller) It shouldn’t use too much effort but having the knife or flathead definitely makes things a lot easier, and saves your fingers and thumbs. Good luck!

Check the video below for more info on how they were designed for all of us DJs.

Lab pt 2

I think I’m just about finished with my lab. Just have to clean up the wires for my monitors and I’ll be all set.
I should take a better picture without the mess but you get the idea.
