  1. Nice, that's a really good idea! This seems like it could be a good option, but I'd have to make sure the mount points on the case are strong enough, and would need to make the keyhole cuts. The case will either be 1/4" or 3/8" plywood, so I'd think some reinforcement would be needed since the force will be distributed over a very small area. Not sure how the best way to mount the keyhole screw to the hand truck's frame would be either. Any other ideas, or places I can look, search terms for mounting options? Also will need to figure out how to mount the items pictured to the inside of th
  2. This is the one I'm leaning towards as seems about the right height, width, and sturdiness for the job: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Liberty-250-lbs-Capacity-Folding-Hand-Truck-with-Handles-10002/308865060 Do you have any recommendations for where/what to look into with some sort of user-friendly detachable mechanism I could implement? Just having trouble picturing what would be needed for this exactly, or what the different options might be.
  3. I'd actually like to be able to remove the case from the frame for use when traveling, just without foot control, or separately. Do you have any ideas of how I could rig this up so it can be detached? Also, any case builders you could recommend or think of off the top of your head? And an update on this; I got the touchscreen in the mail today, plugged it in, and it worked! It works with no setup on both my 2016 MacBook Pro and the Intel NUC8 Hackintosh, running macOS Catalina 10.15.5 and 10.15.3, respectively. The brand is "Uperfect" and it can be found on eBay for under $200
  4. Any examples of what a qualified road case company would be? I'd love to be able to find what some options are. I do not have access to a machine shop or a welder. Would hope to use a different method to build if possible, as I've seen a few rough guides out there on. Does not need to be the toughest case, won't be using on flights or anything and I won't be performing out traveling very often. Mostly for personal use. The equipment itself on the upper level at current (what you see) is less than 15 pounds all together, if not 10. A power strip and any other accessories may bump it u
  5. Hey all, Hopefully I'm posting in the right place- I'm currently in the process of building my dream live performance / looping rig, which I plan on using to jam and bring along on trips and for performance purposes. The main thing I'm trying to figure out right now is the structural 'framework'. The concept is simple; an all-in-one mobile live looping rig for an all-in-one kinda guy. I primarily play guitar, and have been looping as well as recording for some time now, with other instruments as well. Recently, I've been using the Akai Force to record guitar loops, adding synth and d
  6. So I am moved in and have T-minus 7 days until first house show... In trying to figure out what different lights / how many, I have created a room layout with dimensions: As you can see, the rug in back is where the drum kit is situated, and then the singer will be a few feet in front of that. The black boxes on the sides are the PA speakers. The real speakers can be seen in the pictures I've uploaded too. So my questions are: 1. What should I use to get a good, DMX controllable wash? Do I need lights on both sides, and/or behind the singer? 2. Effects- any recommenda
  7. I'll be moving in on Thursday so I'll be able to get you exact dimensions at that time. Currently looking at things like: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/FXarrayQ5--chauvet-dj-fxarray-q5-rgbuv-led-wash-array https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/4BARUSB--chauvet-dj-4bar-usb-4-by-rgb-par-system-with-stand For wash and general colors, and then something for effects like strobe or lasers: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/BoomBoxFX1--adj-boom-box-fx1-4-in-1-dome-derby-wash-laser https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ScorpDual--chauvet-dj-scorpion-dual-aerial-laser-effe
  8. Hey everyone, So I will be living in a house very soon in our university neighborhood where house shows are a big thing. We will have a pretty large basement and plan on throwing our own shows, with bands and all the other things you can imagine... My question is, any beginner's tips on what we will need to provide good/interesting lighting for this kind of show? It doesn't need to be extremely bright, but we do want it to be impressive as a venue. One thing in particular that we would like to do is have lights controllable via midi switches, possibly by multiple band members a
  9. Ok, I appreciate this. I'm probably between either the 11' wall or the 9' wall at this point. The corner between those walls has a closet door that I can open from the 9' wall towards the 11', which means that if I angle it correctly I could possibly eliminate some corner bass buildup. I also have a dresser that I can put diagonally in either adjacent corner (depending on where my desk ends up), to do some similar bass elimination/redirecting. Thoughts?
  10. In the meantime, I've come up with a number of options here for desk placement: Me facing 1) the longest wall from a few feet away, 2) the 11' wall from a few feet away, or the "cubby" of the room, 3) centered between the big walls and a couple feet back from that outwards corner, or perhaps 4) centered along the 9' wall, 2 or 3 feet back. I've attached a diagram of these possibilities. I guess what it comes down to is whether I should be more wary of side reflections, rear reflections, or front reflections and the symmetry of each, respectively. Also, I've got a full size bed
  11. Interesting... someone suggested I put the desk facing the 9' wall- any merit to that? Or reasons why the two walls you listed may be better? I do plan on messing around with Room EQ Wizard to get a better idea of the frequency response in multiple positions, but I'm not sure if I can use it with my CAD M179 or SM58, or actually have to buy a calibration mic?
  12. Hi all, Just wanted to post a measurement diagram of my room and see if anyone can help me with where I should place my monitors and desk for best listening position? I know a fair bit about room acoustics and have a well treated room at home, but while I'm at college my room is shaped like this, somewhat oddly. If it helps, my ceiling is just under 8 feet. Also, the desk as pictured is to-scale. I am currently using Yamaha HS5's but may very well switch soon to Focal CMS65's or CMS50's with sub (good or bad idea / which of these two?) So, what would be the best mixing position
  13. I really resonate with all of this. I swear, there was no pun intended in that. I'm actually a Music Technology major currently in undergrad and I'm also in the process of helping them to modernize the curriculum. My interests are in both the creative side of things, and the physical + computer science technical side of things. I do see and utilize the value of using many reference speakers to judge a mix by; however, I feel that essential to this strategy is a single pair of speakers that you can completely trust and be confident on. I do not feel that way as of now with the HS5's. I al
  14. I really appreciate all this info. In hindsight I can definitely hear these issues. I had a tight deadline at the time and ended up having to do almost all of the mixing on these speakers without a sub, in a really small and bad dorm room, with the help of Audio Technica ATH-M50s, and then mastered primarily taking notes off of my car speakers (good speakers but I will not be mastering myself again for at least a while). Now what I'm really realizing is that it seems my HS5's really aren't offering as much clarity in the stereo field, horizontally or depth-wise, and this makes it extreme
