Hoerboard Scomber Mix

The Hoerboard Scomber Mix is designed to be a all-in-one dj workstation. The power cords are hidden in the laser-cut powder-coated steel stand. The Scomber Mix actually comes in an array of colors in either matte or glossy finish. It definitely reminds me of the stand for Apple monitors.

The idea of this seems cool and could possibly be useful, but with that said I’m curious what are your thoughts on it?

I’m really loving the clean and very sexy design. It would make nice in a really nice at a minimalistic club where the DJ could have a small stage. Just an example.

However I gotta agree with Anon, it misses a laptop stand. It would be perfect with a laptop stand coming out center back, it could easily be made just as sexy.

Want. Want. Want. But I’m not sure I could ever justify it. Even if I was Kanye. (I’m assuming it’s really expensive).

I like the aesthetic, and there’s no doubt that it is a beautiful piece of equipment but something about having the “Apple DJ Station” doesn’t fit with my vision of what a real set-up should be like.

But I can’t complain too much about anything that reduces clutter and confusion.

“Hey man, could you play some MGMT or something?”
“Do you SEE what I am DJing on? Only German minimal techno is played on this thing.”

Seems like it has alot of problems.

1. Impossible to transport in a practical way.
2. Can’t add new components in an elegant way, f.ex. a laptop og drumpad.
3. If one component fails you have to find the exact same component to replace it.

It’s just another silly toy for boys in their mid-life crysis with money to spare and a need for attention.

I can definitely see both sides to the argument:

Chester has a point, it’s really only designed for certain clubs and certain kinds of music that match the aesthetics. I could see Royksopp being played on there but not, say, Boards of Canada. They would have something that looks more like a Virus keyboard; woods and more ‘old school’ synth style.

Leo is also right. DJs are incredibly modular people. To be constrained to hardware that’s defined by the table would limit the set in one way or another for virtually every artist out there.

With that said, it’s gorgeous. Even just to sit in the corner of a club and be an art piece it is sexy.

Or maybe in the Apple store, they could do a live set while people browse aluminum Macbooks…

I rather enjoy my messy unorganized cluster bomb of patch cables in my set-up. Don’t get me wrong, if someone gave this to me I would be so stoked. But I don’t think I would ever drop serious dough on this. Nice sleek design! Though, it is hard to overlook how Apple inspired it is. The 3rd pic down actually looks a bit like an iphone4 on it’s backside.

Also pretty much everything that Brennan said.
