my biggest mistakes are the volume knob Smile

no shit i like it loud Red Face

besides that, bad cue's for example:
cueing but due to loud monitoring of feedback from the room, you push in too hard, so in otherwords it sounds ok. but infact the tune it's kick is on the "to be mixed" plate's snare...

anyway. thats what strikes me sometimes.

or cutting myself when i put my plates back in to the box.

or the casual bad mixing, i can say proudly that *knocks on wood* it doesn't really happen often
EXPECT WHEN *@$! recording my set...

i agree...but you should knwo your records...and as far as monitors in clubs for...thats when you use the pfl on a mixer in your headphones...i have never once use a parties monitors to cue or listen to my mix, i jsut simply use my pfl and masster....BUT i guess it depends...When you play a show for like 3 hrs i can understand because of fatigue and stuff like that...but if you get behind the deks and you screw up ever 10 dam munites for an entire hour or something...thats wayyyy to much...IF YOU DJ, LEARN TO DJ!

hahahahaha yea...bad cueing is rouhg...especially when you have like a really really heavy OUTBREAK record or a TEch ITch record....a lot of times its hard to count the beats to get the right cue...when you can mix techstep with a good solid hardstep track...thats when you know you can mix... (ME! Big Grin )
not to boast though... BUT yea the cue is rough...and the mistakes while recording always pisses me off...i hate having to restart everythign...

This should actually be in the gear forum, but whatever. The anti-skate system is made to correct the inward force created by the weight. For regular playin' & mixing- cueing u should set it to the same as the weight on the tonearm. For very heavy scratchin/turntablism/record manipulation, set it to 0. (since in this case the balance between backward/forward spinnin' wil be about equal)

Putting the weight backwards and all the way to the end is only needed in "rough" environments with lot of vibrations that could make it skip (like clubs, anything with wobly floors/big crowds/loud soundsystems). For regular use, balance ur tonearm, then set the weight as instructed in your needle's manual. Putting it further will keep it in the groove better, but ur records & needles will wear out much faster.

In order to avoid skipping u can also try some other tricks like a marble/granite plate under your decks, a piece of foam or the "freefloat" aircushion.

Your welcome, website could be better, hasn't been updated in almost a year by now Foei , just never find the time to do it, or I just do something else, or just do nothing, or... u know how it goes.
