|I asked Hugo Gomez of NorCalDJs to tell us about himself, his business & how he uses the Mini XLR Mixer...|
>What is your company name?
"I run a small Mobile DJ Service in the San Francisco Bay Area called NorCal DJs."
>What kind of audio work do you do?
"We provide Audio, Lighting and Photobooth Services for Corporate and Private events."
>What kind of clients do you serve?
"Our clientele ranges from Middle School Dances to Fortune 500 corporate companies, such as Google, Facebook, Kaiser, and Genentech etc…"
>What brand is your primary mixing board?
"I primarily use a Pioneer DDJSR."
>What brand of speakers do you use?
"For many years I have used JBL G2 EONS, but I have recently switched to QSC K12’s with Mackie SWA1801 subs."
>How far do you travel for work?
"I travel from the central peninsula all to way north to Lake Tahoe and as far south as Santa Cruz."
>What's your website?
"For corporate clients and weddings I use: www.norcaldjs.com and for my bilingual clients I use: www.weddingsandquinces.com"
>How would I know when somebody I meet needs your services?
"They will say to you that they need a DJ for their event!"
>What do you use the Mini XLR Mixer for?
"I use the Mini XLR Mixer as a standard feature because most DJ mixers only have 1 mic input. When presenting the Best Man/Maid of Honor to lead the toast, it is more professional if you don’t have to run the mic back and forth from the DJ to the Head Table. It also functions very well when I have to run Lapel Mics to an Officiant when conducting a Wedding Ceremony. I also use it when presenting guest speakers at corporate events.
>What made you know you wanted it?
"I knew I wanted it when I realized that it did NOT require power. Power outlets are a prime commodity when performing at reception halls."
>What aspect of it benefits you the most?
"The additional mic inputs into my mixer are by far the best advantage to using the Mini XLR mixer, not needing power to operate it is a bonus!"
