Ideal DJ Setup

In 2012, today’s professional DJs tend to be equally practiced in music production and the creation of their own tracks and sounds as in DJ mixing itself.

Mixing has quickly moved from vinyl turntables to CDJs and now, the latest DJ Controllers are proving to be highly creative, popular and useful tools.

2012 Ideal DJ Setup

So as the new year dawns so does the new age of the Digital DJ where the ideal DJ Setup is part mixing, with a high quality DJ Controller like the Traktor Kontrol S2 or S4 and part music production with Ableton Live and a Keyboard Midi Controller like the Novation SL MkII.

Pioneer CDJ-350 and DJM-350

Guest post written by Steven Williams

Although it may be designed for the intermediate DJ, the Pioneer CDJ-350 and DJM-350 are full of features you would find on the more advanced CDJ-2000, we’re reviewing them as a package but are of course available individually.

Pioneer CDJ-350 and DJM-350 DJ Set

In terms of uses the Pioneer CDJ-350 is very much value for money when you consider just how much you’re getting from a cheaper product in the pioneer range. It can also handle most audio formats you can throw at it as its MP3, WAV and AIFF, from either CD or USB. When hooked up to a computer it not only acts as a MIDI controller for your essential music and DJ software but also as an audio interface.

Beats by Dr. Dre – Gimmick or Good?

I have to admit that for quite some time I saw Beats by Dr. Dre headphones as all style and marketing and no substance but that was before I actually put a pair of Beats on my ears and gave them a good listening to.

Is the Pioneer DDJ-ERGO the best DJ Controller for Beginners?

There is a lot to love about the new Pioneer DDJ-ERGO DJ Controller and if I were a beginner DJ just starting out, I can easily see the ERGO being my first DJ hardware purchase.

Pioneer DDJ-ERGO

Let’s start with the overall look. It’s really cool and beautiful looking and I can easily see the Pioneer DDJ-ERGO selling like hotcakes out of Apple stores everywhere. In fact, it’s designed with a laptop dock so that it sits over the keyboard with the screen in the same view as the controller itself. That’s a real space saver and I think it just really makes sense for ease of use for the controller to integrate with the laptop so well.
