Playout

  Traktor Pro 2 DJ Software

DJing via a laptop has many advantages over Djing with CD's or Vinyl records:

  • The convenience of not having to carry around a large box of discs, which can get lost or damaged.
  • Finding requested tracks quickly and easily
  • Multi-purpose -> having the facility of being able to display slide shows, videos etc.

  • We use Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2, which is often referred to as the industry standard DJ software across the world.
    We also use Native Instruments dedicated DJ sound cards delivering uncompromising sound quality and clarity.



      Vestax VCI-100 SE

    A good DJ Controller is essential to any digital DJ setup and the VCI-100 is one of the most respected in the industry.
    If you are familiar with the traditional DJ setup of 2 decks and a mixer, basically the VCI-100 combines the same controls into a device approximately the size of a single record deck. An ideal size for us as we like to perform using 2.
    The VCI-100's spinning platters use parts taken from their quality turntables, giving you that genuine vinyl feel often lacking from other dj controllers.


    Speakers

          Logic System

    We carry a good range of speaker tops and bass bins.
    All our speakers are made by Logic System - a British company that manufactures some of the best Pro Audio speakers in the industry.
    Made of birch ply and using high specification components, their performance and reliablity are unmatched.
    They are also very stylish and extremely compact, making them ideal even the most exclusive of venues.
    With systems providing from 1000 watts right up to 3000 watts, Our discos can suit from anywhere up to 500 guests.



    Power Amplifiers

        Chevin & Crown

    Chevin is a very well respected British Amplifier brand. The classic Chevin A-Series amplifier is built in a steel and aluminium housing incorporating lateral Mosfets and the Chevin Power Supply.
    We also use a range of Crown power amplifiers - another well established amplifier brand that has been around for five decades.

    All our amplifiers are extremely reliable and happily run all night and beyond without even blinking, and the volume delivered by the setup is perfectly adequate with plenty left to spare.



    Speaker Management

        DBX DriveRack

    DBX DriveRack PA is the world's most popular loud speaker management system.
    The driverack combines a crossover, feedback supressor, compressor and graphic equalizer in one single unit, making it ideally portable.
    With a graphical display, it is easily configured to get the best sound out of any venue.



    Mixing Console

     Mackie 14 Channel Mixer

    With usage in live performance and recording, mixing boards have become an essential piece of equipment. Mackie dominates this market, and many DJ's and musicians have difficulty imagining life without the company's compact VLZ series of mixers.
    Mackie mixers are made to last - all metal casing, heavy and solid.
    We currently own 2 of these great mixers, and linked together can provide a total of 26 channels.



    Studio Effects

         Lexicon MPX

    Quality reverb and delay effects can provide that desirable studio quality sound - perfect for musical instruments, or for vocal applications such as Karaoke.
    Instead of using cheap FX's often found on sub-standard mixers, Equinox Discos has a dedicated FX unit.
    Lexicon have built a reputation providing professional studio effects. The MPX delivers the latest digital technology, extensive I/O, and intelligently conceived and great-sounding programs.


     DBX Compressor Limiter

    This DBX model is a dual-mono or coupled stereo compressor / limiter, as well as containing a limited channel gate functionality.
    The DBX is essential in protecting against power spikes, and can be used to really enhance speech and vocals.



    Microphones

     AKG Wireless Microphones

    Wireless microphones are far more convenient than wired ones, but many lack the same quality.

    The transmitter covers a very large area and each mic will run for 30 hours off a single AA battery, so there is never any chance of you being cut off.


      Shure Microphones

    Shure has produced a vast array of microphones for decades, among which are the well known SM series of dynamic and condenser microphones. The series includes the SM58 (perhaps the most-used microphone worldwide for live vocals).
