Re: "Soft" case for apc 40 AND a laptop?

Thanks for all of those suggestions. They've contributed greatly to my research. How's the padding on the headliner bags? They're seemingly the overall best. Although it should be more about function than looks - what's up with some of these designs?! - the Namba bags look super sturdy, but quite od...

"Soft" case for apc 40 AND a laptop?

Anybody have any answers for this? I'd rather skip the overpriced hard case route. Also, I always carry-on my laptop anyway. I'm hoping I can get something somewhat compact to fit both the apc and a laptop at the same time. As long as I keep it by my side, a soft case should be fine. Any solutions? ...

Advice from Berlin?

I'll be spending some time there in late August/early September. I was hoping to do a couple of DJ sets while I'm there. Even a small, dive, very local sort of place is fine. I just have no idea where to begin right now. Any suggestions? Please... It would be much appreciated.

Re: The true story of Michael Jackson...

MJ was a tragic figure. He wasn't allowed a childhood. That wasn't his own choice. I once read an interview with him from the Jackson 5 days (I'm almost certain that he was 12 at the time of the interview) and he said (paraphrasing), "I'm having a lot of fun doing this, but I'm also looking forward ...

Re: great portable computer speakers? or ipod dock?

I guess its true - at least for now - Without size and weight, you're not getting much bass. Bass needs to physically move air to sound right. Maybe in another 50 years? I looked at those Bose also - and the Bose ipod dock. Its always tempting. I'm not going to hate on Bose, but they have their own ...

Re: great portable computer speakers? or ipod dock?

My girl will be there too so headphones are out - though I'll bring them too for working on tracks. I was looking at the JBL that Hidden Driveways linked. I guess I would consider a smallish 2.1 - not sure which one though....

great portable computer speakers? or ipod dock?

I'm looking for something just for hotel room listening. Not really for production or anything like that. Something that fits in my suitcase. I would consider a dock or regular 2.0 speakers. I like deep bass, but don't want to bring a sub with me. any suggestions? under $300 would be best... thanks ...

Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

DJs are retards when it comes to live experiences so fucking what, you play other peoples' music, I'm not impressed. DJs are the lowest rung on the musical talent scale, name something lower, try it. NO, that's not at all what I do. You know nothing about me either. Nor do you know about my ego (or...

Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

I agree with you Jacqueslacouth - that's the point I'm trying to make. Its just completely irritating when somebody like this has to jump into somebody else's discussion just to try to shoot it down. I've never done that. I agreed with the conversation and the original poster so I added to it. If yo...

Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

Really? So you would like to use your many inputs/preamps with the apc40 in a live performance . Go ahead and explain... How many people using the APC40 IN LIVE SITUATIONS will be using multiple outs and multiple preamps? Perhaps a few, but not many. And for that matter, how are you planning to use ...

Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

some of us have moved on beyond the lame ass audio cards a DJ would use ...and I guess some of us are far too busy actually making music to not accumulate 15,000 plus posts. Are you suggesting that DJ's are inferior when it comes to sound quality? What are you basing that from? Who is using the APC...

Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

I mentioned this before and you would have thought I suggested the ultimate blasphemy. Decent stereo outs on the apc40 would be nice for a live situation. Like you stated, one less thing to bring. Of course I wouldn't consider using any onboard soundcard for anything other than live situations. Call...

Re: anybody wish that the APC40 had audio inputs/outputs?

Some of those ideas don't sound so crazy or unrealistic (but some might). Portability is a huge factor, but its tough to get too customized without shrinking the market - but that has already somewhat happened as in Akai making an exclusively Ableton controller. I know a lot of people who use the he...

Re: anybody wish that the APC40 had audio inputs/outputs?

wow... way to take something completely out of context. Not sure about you guys, but when it comes to touring - as far as equipment goes, the less, the merrier. How many bags do you want to have to check anyway? For DJ sets, minimal is key. One less thing to bring is a nice option. (ie vestax vcm-10...

Re: anybody wish that the APC40 had audio inputs/outputs?

...yes, but for live DJ sets, I don't think most people need to get too specific. I'm not referring to a studio setup.
