    how exactly does an MP3 pool work?

    Sorry for my lack of knowledge on the matter and not really contributing to the discussion but I'd really like to know :P

    IMHO dj pools are whack...if you want to sound like the rest of the djs and play the "hot tracks" join a record pool or download the top 100 on beatport.

    There is an article on pools on the home page, just search for it. Lots of opinions in the comments.

    I'm on 2 at the moment, DJcity.com, and Late Night Record Pool. I really like DJcity, they have a lot of DJ edits and a lot of the tracks have 8 bar intros which is very helpful. Where I have been disappointed though is in some quality of tracks. It fluctuates and as i've gotten better at listening I can tell when a track is not up to quality.

    I agree with the previous poster it kinda limits you because anyone can be on these pools.

    My opinion, sign up for a good one so you can get acapellas, instrumentals, and easy access to the "hot" tracks and dj friendly intro tracks, but also don't stop going through the blogs and digging on iTunes (sounds crazy but i've found some sick stuff in iTunes you just gotta dig hard)
