Forgot to update on how the gig went.
The room where the "reception" was held was on the 2nd floor of this building and had to climb some stairs. Luckily I brought a fold-up dolly to wheel it to the stairs. I had to park on a lower level behind the building, take an elevator to the main level (thank god they had that), then wheel it all to the stairs and heft it into place. The room was like a 2 lane bowling alley. Not pleased. My setup spot was raised platform at one end about 8'x4'. Although not ideal, I had to place the mains on this platform and sub went in a corner, shooting down the wall of the room. All the other gear was on this platform, too. Didn't have time to use the RTA mic, so I used the test preset I saved.
Overall the music variety seemed to mesh well. Too bad I couldn't turn it up much because the room was overcrowded and I would've blasted the people closest to the speakers. I was surprised how easy MIXXX made it. No crazy volume jumps, long "dead air" times, fast then slow songs, and the fades were smooth. I literally just dumped my playlist into the "auto dj" and it sorted it all out. Had to move around a few songs that incorrectly determined the bpm. My only issue (beside unfavorable speaker placement) was the little hyper kids that thought my laptop was a toy they could beat on. I'm not afraid of confrontation so I grabbed every kid that touched my stuff and scolded them to the point of crying. I blame the parents more, not the kids.
Anyways, it was nice to get my gear out for a change and blow off the dust. Hopefully this summer I'll have a chance to really try out my OT12's and maybe some Titans?
Good luck, and have fun!
What are you running MIXXX on? And have you interfaced a controller to it?
Laptop with a Behringer uca202 to mixer. I have a Numark Mixtrack that can
integrate with MIXXX, but I haven't used it in a long time and didn't wanna relearn it all and risk the gig.
