    hey ppl, I've recently put a dnb live group together - there's about 7 of us all up - pretty big project but its so fun. Just wondering if there's ppl out there who also play live whether it be through hardware/software/acoustic instruments or a mixture of all three like us.

    A problem I can see us facing is getting levels correct when performing at different venues. from my band history I would normally just use the house AudioTech, however the usual venues for dnb in Melbourne where we are from typically don't use one during sets, their stage monitors also usually leave something to be desired as most performers are just djing.

    Any ideas besides employing our own Audio Tech or lugging our own stage monitors around?

    kind of sort of. What I do is (since I DJ off mp3s i.e Vestax VCI-100 w/ traktor) I feel like just scratching for a "live" feeling won't really cut it considering I am running through software. So what I do is run samples through reason on a seperate laptop hooked into the mixer while djing on my master. These samples are tweeked out n effected to hell all on my korg kontroler 49 (midi controller). That way i can twist, tweek, n do whatever giving my shows a live feeling. ITs a pretty new idea but its starting to grow on me
