Some pics of our last event, and our first party with the new speakers I posted before!

We invited our friends' seven-piece live Disco band Saturn this time and another pair of DJs called Love Dancing. The combination worked like a charm, with the DJs playing upstairs and the band playing a set in the middle of the night in the sweaty, nasty basement. Since I played the opening slot I was even able to enjoy myself this time.

It was a little bit too successful and we doubled the number of guests we did last time. Still, it never got uncomfortably packed and the energy was great. Not advertising publicly is pretty good at keeping the number of jerks to a minimum. I think when everyone is one or two degrees removed from each other, they tend to act more respectfully.

That's me playing a few pics down playing our new floating console - which, I'm happy to say, FINALLY solved the skipping problem! It's mounted to the post at right and suspended from the beam above. I've also got a cool new solution to installing a rotary mixer but you can't really see it in the picture. I built a rack-box with a french cleat on the side so you can bring the mixer to the gig and attach it to the console just like a drawer. Pretty stoked about it, i'll post pics soon.

Lots of balloons, lots of tinsel, a couple of disco balls, and jacking Disco music all night long

Wow, these pics posted a couple pages back are pretty interesting.
I think you might want to think about doing some dusting in that
Booth LOL















Seriously though, I’m curious about the system set up. It seems like a lot of
Different cabinets mixed together. You have 3 totally different sub designs with
the scoops, J horns and dual 18 direct radiators, and 2 different mid bass horns…
sealed dual 15 horns and ported single 15 horns.

It would seem from the pics that the system would have issues with cancelations
and phase issues and at the very least muddy bass response due to the difference
in timing from all 3 sub designs. Just curious about what you have done or what
processing your running to correct those issues.

Bet you anything it's a 12ax7

I don't get how you can spend so much on a mixer yet put shit into it...Serato interface and Ortofon Elektro at least feed it with something half alright if you've forked out that much for the mixer.

What monitoring system are you using?

Hi everyone, that picture of the console was during the spring, I took the CD TT out to re rubber band the suspension, and unfortunately dust, specifically CARBON DUST, is part of BUMPER CARS operation. We clean, vacuum, and wipe everything down on a daily basis! Next morning, it is all dusty again. Carbon brushes inside the bumper cars DC motors are the culprit.

What are you doing to correct the timing issues though? Surely you must have issues with that using 3 completely different types of subs, and possibly from the different types of midbass horns as well. Different drivers in different cabinets with varying horn path lenghts are going to behave differently, thats just physics. No big deal I'm just curious and I think it would be interesting and educational to hear how you have addressed these issues.

Thumbs up

I was going to post this earlier, but it kind of slipped my mind... Just thought I'd share what I got to play with at Bar Bonobo when I visited Tokyo, Japan in May earlier this year.

Now, that's what I call knobs, lol.

Now, there are knobs, and then there are KNOBS! I particularly like how the lower knobs are clearly so important that they need to be kept behind bars. Serious.

Loving the pint-glass on the turntable in the background too!

Interesting, do they make brushless DC motors for bumper cars? I used to be really into RC cars which in the recent few years went from brush to almost all brushless technology. Not sure if they make motors of that size brushless but that must be a lot of carbon dust lol. Isn't that possibly carcinogenic?

That's what happen when peope get drunk. The scary part was that people kept bumping into the table at times. I did my best to keep glasses of the table. Fortunately nothing got spilled.

I wonder how many turntables got their tonearm messed up because the djs decide to actually put their cd wallet over the whole thing with its full weight. Man, I hate seeing that, it makes me cry inside, lol.

Interesting mixer! Hand built by some Japanese guy in the late 70s or early 80s for David Mancuso after his specs I believe. Unless something got lost in translation though, which is highly common over there. Btw, valves inside

That mixer got really hot throughout the night. Almost like we could have cooked egg and bacon on it for breakfast

pretty cool...

tubes are effective heaters....
especially if they are biased into class A operating specs,
which preamp tubes commonly are....

Yeah scary but true I've heard of gear being transported on a bus once and some pisshead actually sat on a deck - knackered the tone arm straight away. Damn shame...

There should be a law against this kind of thing - one drink or bump on the console and it's free beer all night for the DJ
