Starting a soundsystem...advice needed!

Post by Dub Scientist » Wed Feb 15, 2006 12:46 pm

Big up! How you guys doing? Everything irie? <BR> <BR>First of all, sorry for the bad english, I'm from Portugal and...well it's not my first language. <BR>I'm planning to start a small soundsystem with some friends. Here's the idea: we want to spin some records &#40;mostly dub...Iration Steppas, Jah Cure, King Shiloh and stuff like that...do you guys know a good web site were I can buy this kind of vinyl records?&#41; and have a friend singing over the music being played. But the thing is that I want to have effects &#40;like reverb, delay...and maybe phaser...applyed in the same channel&#41; applyed to the voice. For that I was thinking in buying some cheap &#40;but nice&#41; mixing table, that could alow me to mix the records &#40;on different channels and apply the effects on the voice. I had a look to the BEHRINGER products. But well...what's you advice? <BR> <BR>Thanks in advance! <BR> <BR>Blessings from Portugal!

- i never bought vinyl online - so can't help with that. i think it is necessary to listen to the records before buying them anyway. something you can do in typical vinyl shops aimed at djs. <BR>&#40;at least in europe&#41; <BR> <BR>- about the mixer: don't forget that you need a special phono preamp for turntables. also you want to be able to listen to one record while the other is being played on the sound system. that's why there is a market for dj-mixers. i see that behringer has also a line of dj-mixers. <BR>this one for 265Euro even has the effects you want: <BR><a href="http://www.behringer.com/DJX700/index.cfm?lang=ENG" target="_blank">http://www.behringer.com/DJX700/index.cfm?lang=ENG</a> <BR> <BR>To me it looks like a copy of the very popular pioneer mixer djm500 for ca. 700Euro: <BR><a href="http://www.thomann.de/thoiw2_pioneer_dj ... dinfo.html" target="_blank">http://www.thomann.de/thoiw2_pioneer_dj ... fo.html</a>
