Why Digital DJ’ing ?
The concept of being a DJ has changed a lot in the past 20 years.
There used to be bulks of vinyl packed in boxes and carried to every single gig in the 90’s. DJs spent more time browsing thru the music collection than anything else while in the booth. Too much load, less productivity.
Then we got CDs ! What a change it was in music industry.
Size got smaller, technology kicked in, equipment had more variety. The big change started in the early 2000’s. Leading brands found different ways to implement many features to CD players and this meant the birth of unique DJ’ing styles behind the decks.
Computers were too effective and addictive not to be ignored by manufacturers in DJ’ing world. There had to be software integrations with traditional players so that Disc Jockeys could combine their skills with equipment and perform at higher levels.
Using a computer to DJ was not either acceptable or tolerable for professionals in this business in the very near past, but today digital structure is a key essential for DJ’ing.
Why Choose Digital ?
* COMPACT AND EASY TO TRANSPORT
* ADJUSTABLE TO DIFFERENT PLATFORMS
* INSTANT REACH TO MUSIC LIBRARY
* ADVANCED SEARCHING AND SORTING CAPABILITIES
* MULTI FUNCTIONAL FOR VARIOUS PURPOSES
* MOBILE DEVICE CONNECTIVITY
* FILTERING AND EFFECT VARIATIONS
* PERFECT “BEAT MATCHING” FEATURES
* PLAYLIST OPTIONS
And much more ..
Today’s Disc Jockeys set up their archives digitally, regardless of what equipment they use to perform. Music distribution platforms are also mostly on internet.
You can buy online, download and sort it in your library and you’re set to go. No dealing with CDs, vinyls or any other device.
Another advantage of “Digital” is the cost of setups. Classic DJ CD players need to be pair or a dual deck combined with a mixer which is pricier than any software controller in the market.
As long as you have a laptop, adding a device and the program will do the job. You can find information about all of these on our website.
If you don’t want to lose time trying to learn DJ’ing by yourself, we advise professional training courses or DJ schools. As a beginner DJ, you will also need to practice a lot.
Don’t wait anymore ! Start learning how to be a DJ and live your dream.
