    Or just make things easier for everyone including yourself and learn to use CDJs

    How does someone get paid to DJ at a club yet doesn't know how to turn the sound on?

    Default Thanks!!!

    Hi guys,

    Thanks again for all the great feed back. And yes I know I need a computer

    And yes I called faders slide bars... I`m not DJ`ing in Ibiza... I`m doing this for a friend.. have a great ear and music selection I`m going through the learning process again...

    8 years ago I was a small club and my friend who was spinning was going to be late for her gig. I picked up a vinyl and started spinning that`s how I learned. I may not know all the terms or what every cable is called but i`m getting there.

    It`s like putting a paint brush in somenes hand and they start painting an amazing picture... There not sure what brush they are holding or what type of paint they are using BUT they have a natural way of doing it.

    Again thanks to all of you this was helpful.

    End product is really all that matters. That's our mindset as a DJ. I get what you're saying here. The people that book you may be able to look past that first impression, and only look at what the end result was, maybe not. You'd be surprised how many owners/promoters started off as DJ's, and are close minded when it comes to controllers, you're a failure to them before you even played a song and there's not much you can do to change their opinion. I don't think it would be fair if we didn't warn the OP of this.
