    • Back in "the day" we DJ's had so many choices for music but now many of those sources have went out of business which included my favorite source which was TM Studios (Prime Cuts). I have tried other sources like Soundcloud, Beatsource, TIDAL, etc.. and recently found myself back to Prime Cuts competitor which is Promo Only.  I had both at one time to compare the difference...  Promo Only was nice but more expensive the Prime Cuts and the music I was requested to play was mostly on a Prime Cuts release more then Promo Only but that was years ago. Today I signed up for a year of Silver Membership on Promo Only for $450
    • I still use my Allen & Heath ZED10fx which works great for small gig that they want to use a couple mics, guitar, drums OR if you are just playing music from your laptop via the USB connection. I carry it around with its power cord in a thomson hard flight case.  Its light and I can leave the mixer in the case if I prefer.
    • Here is a overdue follow up on how the EVERSE 8 is...   one word..  awesome! PLENTY of sound and lasts hours and hours and hours.  Great sound and perfect for a ceremony or small get together of 30 or less Bluetooth worked awesome so I played music from my iPad running djay software.  I also plugged into the audio input jack a battery powered lapel mic and that worked great as well.  For portable or small jobs, you really can't go wrong with this EV speaker.
    • I went off the deep end..   I purchased the DENON DJ Prime Go and I actually really like it.  
    • When using Virtual DJ and the Allen & Heath ZED10fx you must configure it like shown below to get deck2 through the headphones on the MacBook When do I use the ZED10fx? When I need to plug in lead guitar, bass guitar, drums and a mic
