With the release of the new Kontrol F1, there are likely more people out there with expensive hardware in their DJ kit bag. Things have changed somewhat since the earlier days of my DJ career. Instead of taking a heavy bag full of records to a gig, I now carry that same UDG record bag that I used to carry many years ago, only this time its stuffed with hardware goodies!
What’s in your bag?
The contents of my bag vary depending on each gig, but the main contents include:-
- MacBook Pro
- Audio 8
- Laptop Stand
- External Hard Drive
- Traktor Control Discs
Aside from this, maybe I will also be carrying my CDJ’s and a mixer. It can be quite a lot of gear and we need to protect it.
I really love the case from NI as it protects my X1 and keeps it looking good. In the beginnings I didn’t have a case for it, but now after receiving a small scratch on the facia, I decided to protect the X1. As the controller is so slim, the case also acts perfectly as a stand to bring the X1 (or F1) up in line with any mixer, so it sits nice and flush.
I would love to know if you have any other case recommendations? What do you use for your gear?
