    Watch how to videos before spending absurd amounts of money.. Things like this require passion, if you just want to DJ to look cool I can assure you that you won't get very far. Make sure you're certain that it's what you want to do.

    Don't play out til you can cleanly do a 2 hour mix. don't post wack ass stuff on youtube/ soundcloud. Best advice i can give to new Dj's. You guys are representing a community that alot of members spend years or decades learning their skill. don't water down the title

    Get a cheap controller , djing with laptop and mouse is not so fun for long time.
    Numark mixtrack pro is good for beginners , and Hercules makes good ones too.

    One thing I almost forgot that right now I am am running low on finances and cannot afford these controllers, on the other hand I am super excited to get something started, I am thinking to buy a audio sound card so that I can keep the ball rolling.....

    any suggestions...

    thanks in advance

    Most controllers have sound cards so try and figure out what controller you want first.


    You should be able to pick up a mixtrack pro for <100 used though fairly easily.
