- Jackie Ling Wong ... in my home community because of the number of followers. other times, i have used T4 T4 V3 T4 T4 M3. i have also experimented with T3 T3 V3 T3 M3 with some success if the community really likes milonga and vals. when i play alternative sets, i replace a traditional tanda... for example AltT3 T3 V3 T3 T3 M3 or T3 T3 AltV3 T3 T3 M3

- Thorsten Zörner http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TangoDJ/message/5052
- Sabah Chammas
- Tom Stermitz T4-T4-V4-T4-T4-M3 , A longer evening: T5-T5-V4-T5-T5-M3, a house party: T3-V3-T3-T3-M2 (approximately)
- Alex Long T4-T4-V4-T4-T4-M3; small or house milongas: T3-T3-V3-T3-T3-M2; Primarily Trad/Guardia Vieja, but with a sizeable collection of Alt/Nuevo if the event merits it ... Cortinas always - 25-45 seconds
unknowkn or varying length (review at another time)
- Stephen Brown : DJing at local milongas, I always play cortinas and mostly adhere to the cycle T4-T4-V3-4-T4-T4-M3. The length of the vals tanda depends on how many good valses fit with the sound of the tanda. For festivals, I always play cortinas and use tandas of 4 for valses and milongas; T4, T4, V4, T4, T4, M4. For a tanda of tango fusion or electro tango, I usually play T3 because the individual pieces of music are longer.
- Dubravko Kakarigi : I also use the T-T-V-T-T-M format with varied number of songs per tanda. I mostly aim at tango tandas of around 10-11 min and M&V tandas with at most three songs/tanda.
- Andy Kamienski at beginning of evenig, then T4-T4-V4-T4-T4-M3 second half of the evening
- Geoff Walker but also T3-T3-V3-T3-T3-M3
- Miguel Jahnel in Germany without cortinas but when I see that the dancer wants more tangos I change the structure to T6-V3-T6-M3 without cortinas. In BsAs T4-T4-V4-T4-T4-M4
- Tine Herreman - I use T4-V3-T4-M3 the first hour to prime the party, then I add an additional 4T in there for the bulk of the evening (doing either T4-T4-V3-T4-M3 or T4-V3-T4-T4-M3 ), and I end up the last hour doing T4-T4-V3-T4-T4-M3.
- Aydogan Arkis Loop this structure, 2-3 Electronico / alternative music per night.
- David Chayes but also T3-T3-V3-T3-T3-M3
