Thread: New At This

    Default New At This

    I have been interested in becoming a DJ, cause I have seen a few people that are doing it, and it has peaked my interests in it. I just have no clue on how, or where to begin. If I could just get a little advice on that I think I could be successful at this. If you want, you can email me at daknobie@gmail.com. Thank you.

    Welcome. If your just starting out the Vestax Spin (mac) Typhoon (PC) are some good controllers to look at. They'll come with the sound interface built in so you don't have to buy anything else.

    Lol lemme just tell you, get ready to be doing an utter crap ton of reading and studying for at least a month just to get the basics.

    Btw I would recommend you get the book "DJing for Dummies"...I am serious. I bought it myself and it covers almost everything there is about DJing, really good book.

    Or 'How to DJ Properly' - it's vinyl centric, but the principles are sound

    Welcome.

    I agree, take your time a read as much as you can, ask all the question you may have. Go through all the threads here, from the general stuff to the controller stuff.

    As for books there is also :

    'Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" and 'How to DJ right " by Frank Broughton and Bill Brewster.

    There is also : 'The Scratch DJ Academy Guide' by Phil White & Luke Crisell with Rob Principe.

    It's all good stuff.

    Good luck.

    And may the sound be with you.

    Thank you everyone that posted on here to help me out. I found this web-cite using stumbleupon.com and thought that it was one of the first useful cites that had come up. I hope that it works out, even if its just small scale.
