    So yeah, I had a gig last night and I screwed up big time. Instead of hiting the play button, I hit the eject button on my CDJ and the whole dancefloor went into silence. Guess that's what you call a f**k up...

    Starscreamer, Sh&t happens ya know. I am a musician myself and something like that happen to me on a a eric clapton song before and I was playing with my band at a car show. It was kind of embarrassing for the moment but ya live and learn and get through it. Its like you learn from the mistake and then take that in and try NOT to do it again as with anything. I feel ya on that mistake and YEAH its abit embarrassing for the moment but hey, they couldn't do what you do and thats how I've looked at it when I'ved made a mistake before in public.

    What happened after that, did you play it off like it was on purpose.
    Kick off the lights if that happens, then have them turned on the moment you fire back up. Some tracks have cool pauses.

    lol it's cool man, they wer probably too drunk to care anyway.

    I was beatmatching the next track when that happened and when I realise that I hit the eject button, I just quickly turned up the volume on the next deck. It was a freaking embarrassment and I felt bad about it.

    I was at a Flaming Lips concert where they blew out the power three times, and a Weird Al concert with projector issues. Stuff happens.

    Recovering from fuck ups like that is another part of being a pro, so it's healthy.
    Eventually you can play that stuff off without the 'oh shit' factor.

    Honestly, clubs are loud enough that the occasional break in the loud music doesnt' matter at all. Some people might be carrying on a honest conversation and appreciate the gap in the music.
    Never had that happen while I was at a club.

    What you dropped was the ball, son.

    I know your pain, I was playing Crazy Train as lead, and all I did was fuck up. Oh well, shit happens, Screamer. Just drink it away with that Foster shit you speak so fondly of.

    I had something similar happen to me once. There was always a problem using shared equipment where whoever used it before would change something. The one I remember most was when someone had made it so when you used the headphone to listen to the deck that was turned down was supposed to only play through the headphone. But it didn't, so for about 30 seconds I was playing both at the same time, but of course I was skipping around on the one that was supposed to be muted.

    Things like that happen. I once took the vinyl off the wrong turntable. I took the one which was playing. The other time a liveact played before me and when it was my time I found out, that they unplugged one CD player and I did not find out on which channel the other devices were... that sucked pretty.
