    Hey guys...

    My names Steve or Stephen... don't really have a DJ Moniker as yet.

    I'm 26 from Manchester UK and brand new to DJing!. Thought i'd take it up as a hobby as i've always been interested in music and the music scene. Love dancing to it.. so why not DJ to it!

    I was looking for a piece of equipment i could practice DJing on, learn the techniques and learn how to mix well. So i browsed forums and YouTube videos etc for a while.

    I then came across the VCI-100 which seems like a great piece of kit to get started on (I already own a 15'' MacBook Pro).

    Anyway.. i've ordered the custom arcade VCI100-SE to get started on, so my plan is to hook that up to my macbook pro and just get used to how it works etc etc.

    Next pay cheque I intend to buy a decent external soundcard, upgrade Traktor LE to Traktor Pro (and import the mapping files from DJTechTools) and get a decent pair of headphones and then i'm set (i think!?).

    The genres of music i'm most interested in at the moment are:

    • Electro House
      Progressive House
      House
      Trance
      Hip Hop


    Anyway, Just thought i'd say hi as a new recruit to the DJTechTools community!

    Stephen.

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Gabe and I haven't really given myself a DJ name since I have yet to obtain a physical DJ setup. I hail from the San Francisco Bay Area, great place to live btw! But yeah, I've been just been reading and lurking here for the past year since I haven't bought my own VCI. I'm almost to the point where I want to sell my car for something cheaper and use the extra money to buy myself a vci and soundcard

    I live for the beat drops and love dancing to all electronic music. I guess the reason I want to be a DJ is to spread the joy of dancing to electronica with the rest of the world. I want to help get rid of the negative views a lot people have towards electronic music.

    I come from a more rock oriented background, I even play guitar and sometimes I dabble with my friends drums or bass. But I've always had a thing for Trance, House, and Techno and all their different sub-genres. I don't have a favorite, it's usually just whatever gets me groovin!

    My current gear would be the PC I built last year for about $500 since I just wanted to upgrade my mobo/cpu/gpu from my 05 setup. I have a M-Audio Axiom 25 hooked up to Reason and Ableton which I mess with sometimes. But my newest toy would by my new Macbook Pro 13" compliments of Ex California Governator Grey Davis. I've barely touched my PC since I got my laptop, all I can really say is Snow Leopard is a breeze to use!

    This site has already taught me a lot about the digital DJ world and I hope to continue to learn more so that I can make people dance in the near future!

    3. Electroooooo, how can I not coming from LA?

    Was a big fan of LA's electro scene and now am looking forward to discovering it in Australia! Have always been wanting to get into DJing but only recently took the plunge and got the actual vci 100 a couple weeks ago and have been loving it! Will be upgrading it with the SE overlay and w/ pro pretty soon, was thinking about arcade buttons? hmmmmmm

    Anyone else in Sydney down to meet up lemme know! Love to get to know some local DJs around here

    hey,
    Andrew or Andy
    Oxford, Mississippi
    Trance favorite genre
    just got into dj-ing mostly due to my love of trance and this site.
    been practicing spinning vinyl via serato with a friend for the past couple of months and bought Traktor and a mixer recently. Saving money and deciding to go full digital or timecode. Hard decision. like turntable feel but can do so much more digital...

    Hey Everyone,

    I usually go by Roland H. or my full name.
    From San Jose/San Francisco, CA
    I listen to pretty much all styles of music, the same goes for DJing. I'll throw anything on that gets people moving (hopefully not out the door haha). I would say I mainly spin progressive house/trance, deep/tech/funky/electro house, and Drum&Bass. The rest I dabble in just a bit.

    I sold my turntables a while back and have been using my mouse and a copy of traktor since then. I still have a wall full of vinyl that i mostly just sample from. I just recently picked up a VCI-100 as well as some other studio gear. I've been really getting back into production and mixing.

    Hi all,

    Audio Aerosol. Thought i'd sign up seeing as though I've just bought a VCI-100SE. Can't wait to get playing.

    From the UK couple hours drive from London.

    Play mainly Breaks/house
