    Default Music library

    Hey guy, Im new to DJTT and I also just recently got a traktor S2 and I love it so far. It is my first Dj controller and am just starting to learn the basics. But i do have a question about where everyone gets their music from. I have been using torrent sites but now that i have a nicer computer i dont want to run the risk of Getting a virus on my Mac so ive started using Itunes but that adds up quick. Any suggestions or just bite the bullet and pay .99 a song. Also, are there any good site for acapella song files. Any info would be great.

    Support the artists that make the tunes you love ... if you rip them off by torrenting their work, they won't be able to afford to support themselves when they work, so they won't create more tunes. Simple really.

    +1. Something that most starting DJs forget. I never found it less than normal to pay for new, good quality mp3s but apparently I am one of the few of my generation of DJs.

    So yeah, bite that bullet. Work your ass off and pay for that shit. It's also a nice way to refrain you from downloading anything that sounds decent, since a gazillion new tracks come out every single day these days.

    Thanks for all the imput. I have no problem paying for music. Hope it didn't come off that way. I was more or less asking if there are any subscription sites that anyone uses to get a nice library together.

    You can always look for blogs for free bootlegs and stuff of course. I like http://www.dancingastronaut.com a lot, already provided me with some nice tracks. For the rest I mainly use Beatport.

    Beatport gets most EDM shit first, Juno is good as well, sometimes a bit cheaper than BP and juno give away tracks every xmas.

    If your talking about running an EDM library up quick, i dont actually know if theres any EDM pools. But there is top40remix pools,
