  • What, no automix?

  • sampler is big, and i guess djs that play with live bands can do some crazy stuff with the livecast feature, but not really sure what else.

    I'm trying to figure out how LiveCast works. The processing demands would be fairly substantial, no?

    This is a lot of new shit to deal with when I'm trying to get back into DJing...

    Well yeah, but you have to have a sign in the booth stating that there are no repeats until 90 minutes after last playing. If you hit 'em on the hip with the timestamp, boom! Paper trail. Can't F*ck with the numbers. Rules are rules.

    Plus in the timestamp email you can include the Terms of Service where you state the no-repeat rule. Then she has it for her records. And if she's hot and you might wanna blap at some point, you have her email for YOUR records. Everybody wins.

    Best way to get them to leave is to pick an age at least 5 years older, but 8 or nine is better than they appear and say "well, since your turning what?, 30 I'll see what I can do." Instant Becky tears.

  • Wow, this sounds cool. I'm going to try out the sampler function with my little sp-202. Been wanting to integrate it for a while.
