    Hey everyone, New Week, New Part A full show of a Deejay or a Band needs a lot of Know-How, Technics and ofc a lot of effort to get everything working. I'll just make seperate chapters for each part (of a show) 1. Preparation: 1.1 Concept What is the theme of your show going to be? What do you want your show to say about you? Take some time to reflect on this, and what you want your visual presentation onstage to communicate to your audience. 1.2 Design Are you a handyman? Is there anything that you could build as a weekend project that would look great, or be fun to play in onstage? Could you create a unique table for your gear, some sort of crazy spaceship enclosure? Gather some inspiration by watching big budget productions, and brainstorm to see if there’s anything you’d be able to emulate from those performances that you could build for your show. I usually start by writing down my ideas and draw them on a piece of paper. Always stay in contact with the event manager and tell them your ideas. After they say yes, start to make a 3D Demo. i usually use Capture 2018 & Vectorworks for that. It gives me the opportunity to make also a Demo of the Lightshow and if they agree i can plot it and everyone who's helping knows where to put what. 2. Food for the Eyes & Ears 2.1 Visuals Almost every great show includes visuals these days. You can use your own visuals, or collaborate with others for the visual aspect of the performance. Have the visuals correspond with the theme of your set, and make them an important part of the show. Visuals can be very simple, and needn’t be expensive to be effective. There are 4 Kinds of Visuals possible: - Collaborate with a VJ (my first option everytime so i can focus on the light) - Use software for video DJing (if we got smaller shows and the dj has music videos, this is the right thing) - Rent a hardware video mixer (if you work in teams one can help u doing that. especially for live video feed this is a cool thing) - Find someone who can create custom visuals (not rly my stuff, but i also got always a small vj desk with me in case we don't have a VJ there) 2.2 Light Most Artists don’t think about the impact of lighting onstage, but it’s a good idea to give this area some thought. The color, and type of lights will have a big impact on your stage presence. Also u should watch if it matches the visuals. My Lightshow depends on the music the artists play. If i get onto a Rockshow i won't use lasers, on a EDM Show i don't use "par cans" (google them) Perfect way to get an idea about what u can do: - Call the club to see if you can speak to the in-house technician before the show, and ask them to demo their lighting for you. - Rent extra Lights at a Local Rental to improve the lightshow and define it like you want. - Go to Light conventions (like NAMM, ProLight & Sound etc) to get ideas about new technics. 2.3 Audio I usually keep my variation very small. I only did small shows as Audio Technician. Never had to get the right size for the audio.. so this part is not gonna get answerd yet :( 3. The Show 3.1 Week before the show (this depends on the show size) Usually one Week before the show is gonna run, i call all the rentals and check if my rented gear is still there and i can pick it up anytime. If not i'd change the rental and see if theres another one where i could rent that, in case that the thing isn't there any more Also i'm doing some preparation on my lightshow, adress everything, try to make some small effects with 3D rendering already. 3.2 Day of Load-out / buildup (this depends on the show size) When we build up, i usually check all the lamps of the gear and see if there are some damages. If you run a light and it stops working 10 metres in the air, you will thank yourself for not checking it. After you build up everything and adressed it and start to make some positions (in my case) and programm the rest of the show 3.3 Showtime! Well. talk back with the artists again if there was something changed (if you use timecode shows). If nothing changed, do the show and have fun :) 3.4 Load-in Clean the stuff maybe and bring it back. it was a bit a longer part but here you see what i need to look at everytime i'm planning / designing a show.

    Simple steps - Note - Do NOT delete any of the files in your installation. It's just replacing it. 1. Open your ET installation folder. In that put the below files in your etmain folder - pak1.pk3pak2.pk3mp_bin.pk3 cgame_mp_x86.dllui_mp_x86.dllqagame_mp_x86.dll 2. Then replace your ET.exe with this one - ET.exe If you play ETPRO then use ETPRO.exe - ETPRO.exe It should do the job! To confirm - open your ET and then open the console using ~ key. It should say 2.60b

    Well its a bit ago when i started to work in clubs and on shows. Started as a small local stagehand. In the first place I only worked to get to know the artists and speak with them. Well after 2-3 Shows i realized that this wont work proper and its way to hard just to speak with them. I still didn't stop working as a local stagehand. for my luck ofc. One Day, after setting up the stage, the light operator was collapsing just 10min before the show was starting. No one was near the venue to help. so they asked me if i could do that. After the event, the artist came to ask who operated the light. i was basically to afraid that they hated it, but i had to tell them it was me. that was quite a hard step for me. I usually don't speak a lot with ppl. (small braininput: that why i'm not often in voicechat) They loved how i did the show for them and they wanted my to join their tour for the rest of the year (well. 8 shows to do in 3 months). I started to learn the console i was using every show. Even if i didn't had to work on weekends i went to shows and was just watching how other operators work. and if i had luck i also could watch them programming the show before. After the Tour had ended, i went back to my old company as a stage hand. But they just wanted me to do the lightning. no more building. just programming and operating. After a certain points where i was, working 80-100h a week just programming and operating i was done with the world. My back was hurting more and more every day. my only thoughts the whole day were where the highest building was to jump off. i knew i had to take a break or stop doing it. So i stopped doing it. for almost 2 years. In those 2 years i never were in a club.. i sat the whole day at home alone with no friends. I went to rehab. had several surgerys. After those 2 years i was opening my own business. I had struggles to get on the market again. I asked my old boss if he could help me or if he wants to cooperate. He agreed to the cooperation and i started to make light shows for bigger and bigger events. I also had the luck to get to make a show for Dillon Francis or David Guetta. And finally a dream has become alive.. i was asked if i could do a lightshow plot (the duration of 1 dj) on Tomorrow land... and at that point i knew.. This was the live that i wanted. To be continued...
