Depends on what you mean by "metadata." (Almost) all my data is stored in ID3 tags. That is "safe" and travels with the mp3, or FLAC. I use Traktor software. Cue points, the bpm grid, and the waveform strip are all stored in a Traktor database. This can be copied (carefully) from one computer to ano...

have you tried it cancelling the "earth socket" (don't know the english word). I mean connecting the laptop to the AC with an only two pins plug. Donca, I am a language geek and love it when people help me with my vocabulary, so I'm jumping in with a quick English lesson. I believe the closest phra...

I have been playing around with the Redbull BPM DJ app as a backup for my iPhone. It also works on the iPad (and has a MUCH nicer layout on the bigger screen). This is a manual DJ program that is accurate enough to allow songs to be beatmatched...which is a LOT of fun to play with, but overkill for ...

I have the UCA222 for headphone listening at work. It is reasonable for the $$$. I do not listen "loud" at all (maybe 2-3 max). I use the "ins" (with a converter) to plug in a headset for Skype-like voice meetings.

Re: Audio Quality When DJing?

I was wondering, do any of you notice any difference (when dancing or DJing) between 128kbps and higher kbps songs? I think I can tell....at least with my music collection, my computer, my sound card, and my PA system. :wink: The differences are most noticeable on acoustic, classical, or quiet piec...

there is a very bright LED light that blinks furiously the whole time sound is pumping through it. VERY EFFIN' ANNOYING. A problem that can be solved with a piece of gaff tape, or piece of electrical tape, or a small sticker. Of course, if you are willing to void a warranty....there are other more ...

As long as there's nothing interfering with inserting the connectors or simply worn out connectors, I doubt that's your problem. +1 The most common failure mode for a stereo adapter is to completely lose one channel. This happens to me a couple times a year...and I toss the adapter on the spot. I'd...

The trade-off is the mics sound a bit tinny and tend to be prone to feedback. Keep the mic boom as close to the chin as possible. If you have a 3 band EQ on the mic channel - turn the highs down, and the mids and lows up. The mids should be turned up more than the lows. Experiment until you get a m...

SoundInMotionDJ, I hadn't heard of RCF before so I did a bit of homework reading discussions on DJ equipment forums and stumbled across many of your posts. You really get around! :oops: I *do* probably spend more time talking about PA gear than I should. But I *swear* that I actually get some work ...

I've read a comparison between the EV ELX112P, the QSC K12 and the JBL PRX612M that suggested they were all good with comparable sound. I have heard all of those speakers, and I agree that they are all in the same ballpark for sound. In terms of "value" the RFC312A sound better than it should for t...

Ahhh....the tyranny of the blank page. I find that some constraints are very liberating, and if no one else will provide them, I will provide them myself. I DJ for WCS dances (in theory...I haven't in a while). There is a wiiiiiiiiiiiiide range of tempo and genre of that is suitable for the dance. S...

How would you compare it to the Echo Indigo DJx Expresscard ? For the past few years I have been using the Echo Indigo PCMCIA DJ card I have not used or tested any express card form factor sound cards. None of the laptops I have used in the last 10-ish years have included that slot. I am NOT a fan ...

There is nothing below that price point that I will actually recommend at this point. That statement is utterly meaningless unless you tell us what other soundcards you've tried. Sigh. Ah yes...you want my resume before I can make a simple recommendation...well...OK. In the last 10 years I have tes...
