I just bought a Pioneer DJM-707 for 180 Swiss Francs and a MPC2000XL for 100 Swiss Francs

 

Quite a bargain

 

What are you last purchases?

 

Ps: There's a guy selling his Controller One for 5'300 Swiss Francs on the same site I bought my stuff

Holy fuck! That's INSANE on the 2000XL especially! Awesome work, man! :d


Look, we should all know by now Pete doesn't get into that shiny G-Funk sound. If it doesn't sound like a discarded flip-flop hitting an old bin lid, recorded onto a dictaphone, then pressed to shellac and buried in a pile of gravel for thirty years, dug up and sampled on an S950 with a broken dial, he ain't fucking with it.

I recently got a Brunswick B.T.K series semi-acoustic guitar from a guy at work for £50.

His ex-girlfriend had bought it him as a gift but he never played it and said that he couldn't be bothered to learn to play it anyway.

Its a cool guitar,its got a proper spruce top ( I hate guitars with laminated soundboards) and real mahogany back and sides,a good E.Q. system and it also sounds brilliant if you want to just play it acoustic style and not plugged into an amplifier.

The guitar originally cost around £300 to buy new so its probably the best musical instrument bargain ive ever come across although im ashamed to say I've hardly played it myself since I bought my sp 404 from my son a few months ago.

I bought an vci300 mk2 for 40. It needs some love (some pots are fOock3d) but it works and it has a nice soundcard on it!

I bought a Moog Little Phatty for £380 which I think is a fucking steal, but it looks like I got robbed when you compare it with the rest of you! :d

got 2x Stanton Str8-150's for £165 each the other day. Found a few bargains eons ago whilst not everyone was looking on eBay I guess....

 

PT01 mint for £20,

silver QFO Mint £400,

2x PDX2000 for 50 each

 

but nothing that beats that price for a 2kXL!!

Nice ones!! I'm really close to pulling the trigger on a Vestax faderboard from a guy in Houston. Trying to wrap my head around it and decide if it's something I'd actually use.

 Have you considered getting an RME?

A second Scratchbox. Basically unused as it was just used by Infinium to double check faders being sent out under warranty claims. Totally clean, all pots still sitting at their 12 o'clock 'new' position, etc.

 

Delivered to my door with a couple of freebies, all for £200

The only thing that makes this acceptable is that it's in Phil corner of the bunker.

 

FYI, that TT only cost him £125

Thanks Phil!

 

That's a tidy little setup for £325. Thinking about how much those two items cost new, depreciation really can be your friend!

 

I might become one of those pricks who rolls round the internet claiming their occasional lucky finds are normality, you know the sort - people answer who answer "what deck and mixer can I buy for around £300" type forum questions with "Str8-150 and Scratchbox"

It doesn't come with strip club passes. I mailed the guy, telling him that I bought my C1 from D-Styles for 1500 dollars and that if ever he couldn't sell his for 5'300 Swiss Francs, that I be willing to pick it up for 530 Swiss Francs. I told him to contact me only if he's serious about it...

More importantly does the Scratchbox make a silly whining noise! Mine is starting to seriously bug me since going all Infinium. I might just get a new power supply and hope for the best.

Real DJs use SL1200GAEs

Shit, sorry mate. I haven't tested this out yet, but I will in the next couple of days.

Are we talking with headphones on and master ramped up?

You don't need anything connected or ramped up, you can hear it through the headphones (and it varies with headphone volume). It also gets louder / higher pitched if you use any of the fader reverse switches. Interestingly it only kicks in once the mixer has been on for a minute or so from a totally cold power supply state, which makes me think Rasteri's suggestion of a dodgy power supply makes sense.
