    Default The new guy

    Hey everyone so i've been checking out this forum for a while and finally decided to sign up. Thought i would start up by just saying im 17 and i've been djing for a year now solely using my computer and traktor and just played my first real gig or whatever last night for a friends house party and it went well so im thinking of finally getting myself some hardware. I was thinking of getting a Kontrol S2 hopefully for christmas and then build up gear from there. I already have a macbook pro 13" from this year and my friend and i are planning on getting some PA speakers together and i am thinking of getting AIAIAI TMA-1s for headphones eventually too as well as a midi fighter or something soonish as well and then just go from there, hopefully get some more gigs and get into clubs eventually.

    Just thought i would start this thread looking for any opinions on all i've said for my equipment choices or any other tips that could help a young dj starting out.
    Thanks guys.

    There's already plenty of threads about what gear to start with, check them out for further suggestions. But the S2 is a good controller to begin with. Go for it. I've myself never used the TMA-1s, but from what I've heard on here they're good. Look a few pages back and you'll see plenty of headphonethreads...

    gear doesn't make the DJ. Every piece of gear you mentioned is directly from djtechtools. I'd recommend going to a few stores, and looking elsewhere online, and trying out different gear/controllers, and not just plumping for whatever this site recommends.

    While the S2 is a nice piece of kit, it's important to remember that there is no 'best' controller/software, a friend of mine rocks out using nothing other than a prodipe 25c mapped creatively that he bought from a charity shop (and that's about as budget as you can get)
