When you mix between tracks you go from one CD player (CDJ) to the other, using the DJ mixer to blend the two tracks together. DJing on CD is the standard for DJing in clubs these days, some DJ’s are working hard to keep vinyl alive while others are using DJ software programs like Serato Scratch and Traktor Scratch that can be controlled by the CDJ’s for syncing and mixing.

Another increasingly popular option for all levels of DJ’s, from Beginner to Pro, is using a DJ Controller with your computer and DJ software.
