    Ableton Live with an X-Session and a Behringer BCD3000.

    Never got on with CDJ's after 1210's but starting to like what can be done with Ableton.

    cheers mate :icon_thumright:

    i originally saw a similar design to the deck stand on a website that makes the stands but then i saw how much they were charging and nearly fell off my chair!!! so i had a chat with my neighbour who is a chippy and we knocked it together in a weekend for about £50 and a slab of beer!

    oh, and nothing wrong with madonna mate :p

    ye cant beat some real live mixing, shows if they're any good or not, I always thought from the early days that Carl Cox was a fantastic mixer, his choice of tunes went bit spacey sometimes but the mixing was so precise to say the least

    Canna beat a bit of Coxy! Mixing without headphones, and his Latin Theme tune is a cracker!

    I always loved seeing Sasha and Digweed, when they are on form they are really on form, they really understand mixing in key as well, which so many people just don't get, and it is so important.
    And the way Sasha gets tunes bouncing off each other to the point where you're not sure which is which, even when you know them both, is superb.

    thanks mate :)

    I used to think like that but the way things have evolved its very difficult to get stuff on vinyl now-a-days. I can remember when the first CDJ decks came out and Graeme Park was testing them in Mixmag and me and my mates were like, 'but theres no real skill, and that'll never catch on!' but in the end I have bought a pair of them because I could download music and play it out.
    I have had my 1210's since I was 16 and I'm now 32 and I would never, ever sell them or any of my vinyl but sometimes you just have to go with the flow, plus Ableton is one immensely powerful bit of kit :icon_thumright:

    can't argue with that, but don't you think sasha has lost his mojo with the minimal bleepy stuff that he is playing now? proper sasha to me is uplifting house like what he was playing in the early 90's

    Yeah, totally agree, as much I respect what he is doing now and what he does with a tune, especially in live sets, I don't like the tunes much any more.

    Sasha in 1991 was dropping in almost chart stuff with early house and hardcore, and you were getting the odd techno tune coming in too, but he blended it in a way that always worked.
    He always seemed like the DJ's DJ to me, his mixing was tight and he understands how two tunes work together.
    His mid 90's sets got a lot of people I know into dance for the first time.



    I'm 35 now and like stuff that's diffferent, I like 20:20 soundsystem and more progessive stuff, I am also alot less anal about mixing quality these days which is nice as some stuff with great tunes used to get thrown to one side because the quality of mixing would annoy me! :D


    One mix set I love and has got a few people who say they don't like "that sort of music" into it is a set by Neil Nice.
    His mixing isn't much but his choice of tunes just makes me smile, it has actually got me into some other types of music I wouldn't normally listen too.
    It is a real summer, BBQ on type of mix, everyone I know has really loved it, has a real 80's feel to it and just makes you smile.

    Worth a download.....

    Man, that Sasha and Joe Peng is off the hook! I had a load of Sasha tapes when I were at school, and dreamt of clubbing! Illegal raves for me until I was 18 though, looked too young to go clubbing. Soon as I hit 18, I toured the UK clubs.
    Club music nowadays is *****, has to be said.
    Easygroove, Sasha, Rat Pack, Coxy, Lennie Dee, Loftgroover, 3DOM, Producer, to name but a few which still get listened to.

    I was at that Eclipse in 89, or maybe it was 90, but saw them two, although Grooverider was on very early and I was a little messy by then.

    Those bloody speckled doves and black and red caps!! ;)
