the best live act i´ve seen lately was 3-4 ppl based around a guy with SU700, SP808, and a drumpad, who´s giving the rythm and the base (not bass) for all the tracks and playing live percussion over the top via drumpad. add another synth guy, and a live bass player, and you are set. MUCH more interesting than lap top gigging, plus much more space for interaction.
cheers all, M.

what the hell you got in two racks? Why not just downsample everything into a sampler with shitloads of ram, and just bring like 2 synths to tweak + rm1x + sound reinforcement. This would be a good solution if most of that rack space is taken up by synths, which it sounds like it might be.
Just a thought. If the only reason you want to switch to lappy is because you are lazy, don't do it. I will drive over to wherever you live and shove the lappy up your ass, then sacrifice you to the Eternal Dark Lord of Front Line Assembly(TM). In all seriousness, though, I did ALL this shit you are thinking about doing, right down to the same sequencer getting thrown to the wayside because I was tired of carrying stuff. BAD idea.
P.S. - Experience has told me that women juice their panties when pa's have lots of knobs and buttons like that. They see just you + your neato laptop.... you can guess what they think then.

Long live racks o' gear! Lug it out and make it REAL!!! DJ's do the stand around thing better than we do... if you're going to show up, show the f*ck up... give people a reason to watch.
My partner and I play out with one 8u rack, and 2 ultimate 3 tier stands... that's a sampler, 4 synths 2 RM1x's two 8 point sub mixers and a DJ mixer. It works!!! Nicely too.

Ahh well, I'm just trying to save people from the hassle of going that route, because you will NOT be satisfied with it if you are the type that gets off on the visual as well as aural aspect of your performance. It's your world, I'm just gigging in it....

The other option I had in mind was to get the Virus and mixer into a pop-up mixer case, and put the Sony and Akai in one case, but that's gonna weigh a ton That S6000 is fucking heavy.

dude, that is so not a lot of stuff. Plus, it's your own damn fault for buying that 50,000 jigaton sampler with the friggin 17" monitor on it and shit (read: I am jealous that you got the S6000 Seriously though, just use the rig you have now. That is a really nice setup, and very portable compared to a lot of pa's.
The Dark Lord commands it. The Dark Lord wills it. The Dark Lord doesn't want to see Craig weeping over his fried laptop with all the malfunctioning software in the middle of a big, possibly career launching show.
