why is it with DVS you have better oral hygiene?? wtf
and holy crap you make your life complicated.
this is our rig.. 2x X1, 1x maschine, Laptop, Soundcard, 10cds, 2 usb keys
timecode.. ?? vinyl?? seriously!!
and although I have romantic notions of vinyl, it just isnt set up for that in most spaces anymore.. 40 pieces would not be enough, 20cds!! wha! is that your cd case thats attached to the visor in your car? unless you programmed yourself very carefully.. shit with vinyl, you needed at least two crates for a gig.. and a couple of cd books.. maybe there were less gadgets and technology, but that shit was heavy..

With the advent of DVS (Final Scratch, Traktor Scratch, Serato, etc) DJs were blessed with not having to carry all that vinyl anymore.
Fast forward to the present day. The current contents of my DJ bag are the following:
Apple Mac Book Pro w charger
NI Audio8 soundcard
NI Kontrol X1 (2 units)
Traktor Timecode vinyl & cds(4 pcs)
Slipmats (2 pcs)
Shure White Label cartridges (2 pcs)
3-4 usb cables
2 midi cables
6 pairs of rca cables
microphone (1 pc)
500 mb external hd
ac extension cord
assorted audio signal cables & connectors
basic electronic/electrical tool kit
duct tape (1 roll)
squash balls (2 sets)
toothbrush, toothpaste & dental floss
These days I'm only carrying 4 pcs of vinyl with no actual music on them. But the bag seems to be much heavier.
And YES! I am O.C.
