Are you a budding DJ? Would you like to venture into the world of Disk jockeying? Before you do, you need to make sure you have got the right equipment. Choosing the right DJ equipment can help enhance your performance. Make sure you take a look at the following tips to help you find the best possible stuff.
Choosing the right Medium
For newbie’s and in some cases even the most experienced DJ’s, digital DJing is the best possible option. However, this by no means suggests using MP3’s only, so take that cringe off your face. If you have a physical CD for all the songs you would be working with, things could turn out pretty well.
The first and foremost thing which you should keep in mind is to use a computer system which could help support your plethora of songs. Plus make sure you invest in a hard drive which has a greater memory and wont crash. A processor which works fast and has as much RAM as your computer can handle.
Controller’s vs. mixers
There is no sure answer for this one. Some people may prefer the turn table style rotary wheels of the controller which provides an option for scratching while others might prefer the faders and knobs of mixers.
All in all it simply comes down to your own basic style, the audience you are playing for and your preference.
There is quite a variety of DJ mixers and controllers available at our shop.
Choosing the right Headphones
The key is to look for headphones which twirl easily, so that you could gauge the sound in the room according to the next tracks that you intend to play. Comfort and durability should be kept in mind as well. You can’t actually give your best if your head phones aren’t comfy.
Some people might even look at the aesthetic appeal a particular head phone as it can prove to be a game changer especially if you tend to perform in front of larger groups. It could actually help set your image.
DJ Stage lighting
You may be great at what you do but the kind of image which you project can actually amp up your style. A professional DJ lighting setup is something which your audience would love and if you pair that with a fog machine you can be a sure fire hit with the whole club hopping crowd.
There are a few laser units which come along with their own sound activation programs thus adding an extra oomph to your already stellar performance.
Know your equipment
This holds especially well for DJs who tend to perform at weddings or private events. They need to take into account things like active and passive speakers, outboard units, turn tables and the overall environment of the place where they would be performing. Having firsthand knowledge of these can improve your performance as a DJ.
