MOBILE BEAT – MARCH 2010 – #127

The Gear Book, Remixed

No, the Gear Book is not dead, it’s just been transformed into a different kind of useful DJ tool. Instead of product lists, it now focuses on helpful “how to” style articles to help you get the most out of your technology. This time around, we talk about sound system basics, passive speakers, power conditioning, LED lighting and trussing. We also get the scoop on some new gear from the winter NAMM show.

The other major focus of this issue is our recent Las Vegas trade show and conference, MBLVX. Make sure your subscription is up to date to see what all the fuss is about at this not-to-be-missed yearly DJ shindig. We also take a look at some other recent trade events, the DJ Cruise and the first Canadian Disc Jockey Association show.

We talk with a driving force in DJ technology, Karl Detken of Pioneer Pro DJ, who was inducted into the MB Hall of Fame at the Vegas event. Other profiles in the issue include Jim Paetschow of Michigan’s Sound Productions and DJ JonCarlos who spins aboard one of the world’s largest cruise ships.

Reviews include some gear that saw heavy action at the Vegas show: B-52 Professional’s new ACT-PRO active speaker line and the new X2 wireless mic system from Line 6

PLUS: Why clients buy; running a local association chapter; the music of the 1980s; why just having a website isn’t enough; and a whole lot more!
