Being A Disc Jockey?

Pioneer ddj-sx3, This is probably the most common question for all beginner disc jockeys or also known as a D.J. for Traktor Kontrol S8 short. The first thing to do is to do a little research. What type of D.J. would you wish to be? There are various sorts of D.J.'s because they D.J. in various ways. The 3 Big types of D.J.'s are:

Mobile D.J./ Mobile Entertainer
Club D.J.
Battle D.J.
Mobile D. J.

They take their equipment on the street and do gigs at Universities, private parties, special events and the like. They use just about all sorts of disc jockey equipment such as karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the crowd involved with playing games with the songs, Pioneer xdj 1000 singing, playing audio along with other party favorites that involve entertaining the crowd.

Mobile D.J.'s usually have a disc jockey PA system they bring with them to the gig.

This permits the disc jockey to broadcast the audio being played. A PA system consists of an amplifier and 2 speakers.

Club D. J.

It's the Club disc jockeys ability to play various types of songs and make it seem great that makes them stand out. That's the reason why they get paid the big bucks.

To most it is not a mystery why the club disc jockey is the very sought after D.J.. One of my favorite club disc jockeys that cross all types of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money from Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the quickest hands on the faders and turntables that I have ever observed.

For their songs most club disc jockeys utilize Technics SL-1200/1210 Turntables. Now you can find bar D.J.'s using Final Scratch by Stanton or Serato Scratch Live by Rane. Club D.J.'s"play the audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the audience and understand what tunes to perform based on crowd response.

This takes time to develop but as soon as you've mastered this measure it permits you to explore new tunes in the club that you may not otherwise play as a result of inexperience. This is a superb way to make a livelihood if you can find a residence in several clubs.

Battle D.J. or Turntablists

They are a particular group of highly skilled disc jockeys which do tricks using the turntables and mixer. Through years of practice they have been able to develop their skills of scratching, mixing and most importantly beat juggling.

Beat juggling is when a D.J. is able to manipulate two records to the point where it seems like he's creating one new defeat from two distinct ones. Because these skills are highly improved most battle D.J.'s could be a club D.J. or a cellular D.J. since the abilities cross all types of disc jockeying.

When you know which type of D.J. you want to be you need to find out which type of equipment disc jockeys utilize.

The Four questions any fresh disc jockey should ask before buying any new equipment are:

How or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing( for celebrations )?
Just how much do I wish to spend?
Where will I buy all this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Every one of these 3 types of disc jockeys I mentioned above uses the exact same D.J. equipment for the most part.

These are:

2 (2) turntables such as the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
2 (2) slipmats
2 (2) capsules such as the Shure M44 7 mounted on a Technics Headshell
One (1) mixer such as the Rane TTM56 (Mixers)
One (1) pair of cans such as the Stanton Guru D.J. 3000 Headphones
