So it looks like my thread ended with the old forum layout (its been a few months since I've been on here).  I want to continue it on since it had almost 20,000 views so it looks like we'll start a fresh one here :)

For those of you who aren't familiar with the thread, here it is on the old forum: http://forums-archive.pioneerdj.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/9291012904/m/7761065024

And since it looks like I can't embed images or video, I think I'll wait to add material until that happens as it provides a much better visual experience :)

Well then! Gracias amigo! :)

These are pics from when I played at Freaknight Oct. 28th in Seattle with Tiesto, Cosmic Gate, Dada Life, Sub Focus and a bunch of others.  It was a great show with over 15,000 in attendance.  The equipment rider for all 4 stages was pretty impressive as well (not to mention all Pioneer gear)
What amazed me is that on almost all of the artist riders, they did not want the CDJ's connected digitally but rather wanted it connected via RCA's.  Thats something new to me and I'm going to try and find out why that is.

Some of the gear used at Freaknight
-11 CDJ-2000's (5 of them were for Tiesto's booth which I played on, def looked like a Star Trek console LOL). 
-5 CDJ-1000MK3's
-5 DJM-800's
-2 DJM-900's
-several Serato boxes

@ Johnny

What speakers are those in the booth ? I've seen Tiesto is using them when he is on tour, both as monitors and main room speakers.

@Daywalker > I would assume one of them is a backup ;)

@ Mariam - He uses the L Acoustics Line Array setup. http://www.l-acoustics.com/products-large-format-73.html they are definitely the best monitor system I've ever heard in my life. Very clean sound yet powerful enough to make ya deaf in no time lol

 

@Daywalker - Gavin hit it right on the money.  I think they required 4, but had one backup in the booth and also had 2 other backups just off the main stage for him. His manager mentioned that there were times where they had 5 CDJ's and 3 of them went out so its mainly for precaution.

@ JohnnyMonsoon

Thanks for the reply .

About the loudness and deafness .... , all i can say is TAKE CARE OF YOUR EARS.  Use ear plugs, this is very serious !

Noise-induced hearing loss is irreversible, not even with all the money in the world !!!

I was thinking backup, But as far as I know he just does intro - outro mixing, meaning he would never need more than 2 working. 3 back ups is a lot.

Now for my techically-curious side: did you find out why they wanted RCA instead of digital?  (always ever used RCA myself, but I have heard that digital is much better, assuming all 320kbps or better original audio).
