[Video] Custom Styleflip.com Korg KM-202 Skin

About three years ago, we decided to use the Styleflip.com services to change the appearance of our all-white Korg KM-202 mixer. We installed a black Styleflip vinyl skin with a DJbooth.net Logo and some other minor changes. That skin still looks just as good as the first day we applied it. Now we're going back and removing the black skin for a new skin that matches the look of the classic Super-OEM Stanton T.120 turntables. In our included video, you will see the removal of the original skin and the application of the new skin which was a great match to our turntables.

[Video] DIY: Traktor/Serato DVS Soundcards Installed Inside Your Mixer

In my latest DIY Video, I'm showing the masses how they can install a Traktor/Serato DVS soundcard inside of your favorite mixer for a nicely updated and compact setup. Some new mixers on the market today come with a DVS soundcard already installed (Traktor Z2, Pioneer DJM-T1, Rane Sixty-One) so that the user only has to connect their CD or vinyl timecode decks directly into the RCA inputs for a plug-and-play solution. I installed a Traktor A4 inside of the Korg KM-202 & a Traktor A6 inside of the Vestax PMC-05ProIV. Check out the writeup & video inside to see how it's done.
