Panasonic WJ-AVE5 Digital AV Mixer
Bought on ebay for £70
This is the only bit of ‘professional’ kit I’ve bought, but it seems to do the job. Takes BNC inputs which means adaptors are required to link it up with some of my other lo-tech solutions. Basic mixes or a variety of wipe options can be used, along with some digital effects (mosaic) and even keying effect to give videos that real trance feel. To be honest this will be most useful simply as a reliable and clean mixing tool for events.
