Yes this was made from left overs of a speaker project. 1/2" and no there's not flexing. This was done in a night. Really. The rack rail came from a 24 1/2" rack stand that I cut into 4 pieces 12 1/4" each. This allowed me to get my gear in with room for other equipment. I still want to get the Rane XP, now there's room. There some other gear and now I have the space in a convenient space for ease of operation.

I am going to carpet the console. Since I do the mobile thing, I am going to make the unit so that is has wheels, and the necessary connectors to just plug and play. Well this is my goal anyways.

This will be an ongoing project. Something to keep me busy. This is my first attempt and it didn't come out to bad.

The measurement for this in 30" deep to get through doors. It's 16" in height, the stand that will be built later will bring it to a height that's I can truly work with, and 40" wide. This accommodates the two TT and gear. Since I have gone to final scratch2, the CDJ's aren't needed. This one is for mobile use. This size lend to good portability. And being all in one, kinda, save me time on setups at an event.

I just bought some cases from TOV in Brooklyn (recommended) and switched some things around in my home set up. I temporarly retired my Urei till I can put some money into fixing it up.

its not about whether you have a world class setup or not its all about how much you put in to your sets and how far you dig in the crates

my setup is very small i have a modded mixer and a cheap dual cdj unit

very often its not whats inside the booth that counts its the things that happen outside the booth that matter

AGREED 100%...
it kills me when kids starting out need to have pioneer cdj's, serato, laptop, xone v6's, etc....love the music and learn how to rock your bedroom with whatever you got, and you will rock the club one day without a problem.

i always had a shitty ass setup but it was good enough to learn on and make tapes. my first decks didnt even have pitch control and i bought my first mixer (a 2 channel gemini with wooden trim) for $7 from a crackhead. today, i do have a way nicer setup - the music has been a part of my life for so long, its inevitable that it always will be.

that is how i justify a custom console or a urei.....i know that ill own it till it dies..or i die! the music will be part of my life....FOREVER!

i hope that makes sense...it does to me...now someone sell me an rla crossover damnit!!

and most of the ppl that started out with 5000.00 setups are not still spining that i know

i had to play on decks that werent 1200s for years until i got my mine and then i was competent to play on anything and i still am

if i show up at a party and they got lineartech belt drives and a radio shack mixer i can rock it out

HAHA!!! LINEARTECHS!! Talk about a flashback....I played on many a lineartech in my day..

At this point of the game Fred, youre going to be playing music in some capacity for the rest of your life..whether it be out at a club, for your monthly recording or just a solo spin on Sunday afternoon. Treat yourself to the Bozak when you can and know that it will probably be the last mixer you ever own!! Peace..

I sell most of the gear on Ebay (Rack modules exciters, crossovers patch bays etc) now i go just with this for my home use. for now its all i need,

Spirit FX 16
Saffire LE Interfase
Novation Remote 25
Mcintosh Mac 4100 Receiver (the Thorens is connected on the Phone input)
McIntosh XR-3 Speakers
Thorens TD 125 Mk2






More synths and the whole vinyl collection still in Mexico , ill get all them when i have a decent space for them.

Start from 0 in Houston is a slow process..

This is my setup. It's a wee bit cluttered but works for me.

2 x Technics 1200s
1 x Technics 1210
Vestax 275 mixer with rotary kit
Electrix filter queen
Redsound Cycloops sampler.

My decks are turned through 90 Degrees (turntablist style) simply because when I first started out, my table wasn't wide enough to have them the conventional way round-I can't scratch to save my life!!!! . And I guess i've just got used to it .

I'm currently saving up for an E&S djr400-that'll allow me to get rid of the filter queen (although I love it) and give me a bit more space.
