Well I'm hoping I can turn DJ'n into a full time job but for right now I'm just a hobbyist, I own all my PA gear and lights, but right now I do it all from the computer all software no controllers, even my dmx lighting is controlled via a usb-dmx converter. I used to do live sound for small band in the area including my own, lol, then DJ after the bands were done until like 2 when the bars would close, or if it was a house party like 2-3 when the cops showed up, you know what I mean. So now I have recording interfaces, lots of mics, mixers, amps, speakers, ect. but I would like to start using a controller I mean you can do a lot on the computer but I really would like to put my hands on stuff for better live mixes. Any who just saying where I'm coming from.
