just like most models i make,
i initally just made this item cuz i enjoy modelling and making stuff.
like most stuff i make i also made this item for use in second life.
i made it cuz i was displeased with the general bad quality of DJ-items in second life.
im a DJ myself and also in SL like to have some good gear for when at a club you have to bring any stuff like DJ-booth yourself.
a lot of DJ-items in second life look just like this
a photo of DJ-equipment slapped onto a flat box... really?
or stuff like this which is more 3D but still doesnt look actual equipment and still looks bleh
another box... with buttons and knobs on it
there is some good stuff on second life, im not saying everything is bad
like there's also this for example, which actually looks quite good:
but there is also the thing that most of them are not modelled after real items, and the fact i like to have something thats unique cuz i made it myself.
so i decided to make some good-looking 3D-models based on the real-life equipment i like in high-poly
some time ago i also made a midi-controller (mixer) model
and this way ill have a set with a vinyl-deck and mixer when its done
