DJ Tips in under a minute:second laptop and drive as an aux player: By Jay Brannan #djjayb

DJ Tips in under a minute second laptop and drive as an aux player. I had to play a track that was not on my hard drive or my laptop at a gig recently. Since I had the song on another drive, and no free USB ports, I hooked up the other laptop as an AUX player. I went out of the headphone jack and into my AUX RCA and played the song that way. It’s a be prepared and think out of the box moment.

DJ Tips in under a minute: wider Gaff tape is cheaper. I learned this at a show, very simple and basic, but if you use 4″ Gaff Tape you can rip pieces in half when needing smaller strips. This becomes a money saver, and at $20+ a roll every bit helps!!!

DJ Tips in under a minute: charge everything up the night before. Seems simple, but it’s funny how many times this has come in handy! I make sure the laptops are both at a 100% so if something comes up and I need to change out or have an issue with a power supply or realize I forgot a power supply (happened at a DJ show once to me), then I am good to go.

Grund Audio Design Debuts
The Gala Series GA-LC9 / GA-LC9P Column Line Arrays

Grund Audio Design, a pioneering manufacturer of loudspeaker and signal processing products for the audio professional, is pleased to announce the expansion of the Gala Series product line with the introduction of the GA-LC9 (passive) and GA-LC9P (powered) Column Line Arrays. Featuring a small footprint and lightweight design, the new GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P Column Line Arrays are ideal for both fixed installation and portable sound reinforcement applications for small to medium size spaces, including house of worship, education, and presentation facilities.

Manufactured in the USA, the GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P enclosures are manufactured with 13-ply Baltic Birch wood for superior performance and cabinet rigidity. As a 2-way loudspeaker system, each enclosure utilizes nine 3.5-inch transducers. Frequency response is rated at 140 Hz — 20 kHz while system coverage provides 120-degree vertical and 10 degree horizontal dispersion. These loudspeakers provide pole mount adapters on both the enclosure’s top and bottom—making them an excellent choice for use with the Grund Audio Design GT-LPB-24C companion subwoofer. Further, these loudspeakers include 2 x 2 flypoints for easy mounting. The enclosures are available in black or white paint as well as unfinished.

The passive GA-LC9 column line array is rated at 300 / 600 watts RMS / Program. The GA-LC9P, with its integrated power amplifier, is rated at 350 watts RMS. Of particular note, a single LC9P can power one LC9—enabling one to eliminate the necessity of transporting a heavy power amplifier when using these loudspeakers for portable PA applications. Dimensions for the Grund Audio Design GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P are ( H x W D): 32.63 x 5.38 x 6.75 inches. The weights are 15 lbs. and 22 lbs. respectively.

Frank Grund, President of Grund Audio Design, commented on the company’s GA-LC9 (passive) and GA-LC9P (powered) Column Line Arrays, “Our new column line arrays address a myriad of portable and installed sound reinforcement applications. These loudspeaker systems are easily transported—making them an excellent choice for gigging musicians. Similarly, they are ideal for hotels and convention facilities that frequently need to set up a PA system for various meetings, lectures, and other events. And as an installed sound product, they are very low profile and, hence, make a great choice for meeting rooms, lecture halls, and similar spaces. Being that we have both active and passive models, I’m confident these loudspeakers will find a home in a wide range of applications.”

For pricing information, please contact Grund Audio Design. Availability: June 2014.

DJ Tips in under a minute: how to angle your gear up: By Jay Brannan #djjayb

DJ Tips in under a minute: how to angle your gear up. If you have noticed a lot of DJs have their mixers angled up when performing, I have always liked this look and feel. I decided to angle up my controller in the case, very easy and not expensive. You just need to get 2 rubber door stoppers and slide them underneath the sides of your controller or mixer. Towards the front, back, middle, it really doesn’t matter as long as the height works for you. The benefit on a mixer being raised in it’s case is the added air flow to keep it cool. If you like the raised angle try it out and see if it works for you!

How to use a USB powered controller without a laptop: By Jay Brannan @djjayb

How to use a USB powered controller without a laptop: By Jay Brannan @djjayb

After every gig my laptop is the first thing to get taken down. If you are using a USB powered controller this means you can’t use the microphone, or can you! I learned that if you plug the USB power cable into a charging brick, the controller receives enough power to get the microphone to work! For the quick last announcement it works great..

Like the intrepid bunny of TV commercial fame, CHAUVET DJ’s series of Intimidator fixtures keep going and going and going… delivering a stunning blend of intensity and color night after night — year after year. Now the company is honoring the amazing durability of these workhorse fixtures with a contest that offers participants a chance to win an Intimidator Wash Zoom 350 IRC and other Intimidator products.

IntimidatorThe Invincible Intimidator contest invites participants to guess the age of a “very seasoned” Intimidator fixture that was still being used earlier this year by a working DJ to create some eye-popping lightshows. A video of this amazingly ageless Intimidator fixture is posted on the CHAUVET DJ YouTube channel. See the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVU20GQyN_I.

Entering the Invincible Intimidator contest is simple: participants just have to go the CHAUVET DJ Facebook page www.facebook.com/chauvetdj, click on the “Intimidator Contest” tab and then select the age of the fixture from a choice of options.

Winners will be selected through a random drawing of all correct answers. The deadline for entering is 11 pm Eastern Time Thursday, August 14, 2014. No entries received after that time will be eligible for consideration. Complete rules, terms and conditions can be seen on the CHAUVET DJ Facebook page. Prizes in the contest are:
· First — A new Intimidator Wash Zoom 350 IRC, a feature-packed moving head wash fitted with seven 20-watt Quad-Color RGBW LEDs, motorized zoom for short-throw or long-throw applications and built-in automated programs with zone control.
· Second – A new Intimidator Wash Zoom 250 IRC, a 140-watt RGBW moving head wash that shares many features with the 350 model.
· Third – A new Intimidator Spot 100 IRC, a compact remote controllable LED moving head with separate color and gobo wheels and built-in rapid movement macros.

“Regardless of which prize you win, chances are very great that you’ll be using your Intimidator for a long, long time,” said Geoff Short, customer engagement manager of CHAUVET DJ. “As a working DJ myself, I count on my Intimidators more than anything else; they’re not only tough and durable, they also perform beautifully. Few things in life are as dependable as an Intimidator!”
