    If you can't find any CDJs to play on, you can always see if any music stores have some on display and play with those for awhile.

    Thats not a bad idea.. I know the best buy at MOA use to have a cdj2000 sitting out..
    It was beat to crap tho.. and only once did I actually ever see any source of music in it.
    but still..
    google image some large pictures of 800s, 1000s, 900s, and 2000. Just to get a feel for the layout.. then when it comes time to try it out you don't have to waist time searching for buttons.

    I honestly think that if you learn by ear you will be more than fine because the cdjs have bpm readout for reference

    So really you just need to finely adjust tempo and then get sync.

    I've always wondered, how do they come up with these numbers? Some kinda beat detection? Those things never work with anything other than house I swear.

    ^this... I don't remember the last time TSP2 gave me a proper beat grid..
    its decent at getting the tempo right.. but more times than not... the grid is quite off.
    Not a big deal when you're manually beatmatching.. but can be a hassle when it comes to time based effects.
    Especially if you're in the middle of a mix and loading a new tune.
    The tap is pretty bad as well..
    I like how sometimes it will be spot on and others it will be WAY off..
    never just slightly off.

    BPM readouts i think read ahead like a phrase of 32 beats. I'm not 100% but one a song change pace and the bass drops the bpm can go wonky. I find my readout on my 400s work pretty good, well to an extent. Its always going by your ear. If you can practice on 350s, and a 350 mixer you will be alright learning to beat match. THe 350 djm mixer is kinda wack imo, the effects suck. Also the 350 cdjs jogs just feel bad but thats me. But if you can beatmatch on those you are pretty much set to play at a large club.

    Ok, why would you play anything other than house or techno and all the subsequent sub genres?
