How to Pick a DJ Rig or Setup

Learn how to choose a DJ rig or setup in this Howcast DJ video with Rock and Soul DJ School.


You need to ask yourself, do you wanna play vinyl, do you wanna play CDs or if you want it all in one midi controller. Look online, you know, or go into a shop- Rock and Soul has an actual shop you can actually walk into, speak to sales reps and just talk to them about whatever equipment they might have, and uh try to figure out prices. You have to ask yourself, "do I wanna play vinyl?" if yes, then you wanna look for one of the best turntables on the market. Techniques is definitely one of the best turntables on the market, they've been around forever and a day. Uh, if you're a CDJ type of person, you definitely wanna ask yourself what kind of mixer you want- four channel, two channel. If you don't want to have separate components, you wanna have something that's like plug and play, all in one, then you can get one of the midi controllers, buy Nextax or Newmark or Pioneer. You want something a little bit more advanced, then uh, you know it's gonna require some more research and if you wanna get into the digital media, uh, DJing with Soratto or programs like that, uhm, again, ask questions and have a sales rep give you a breakdown of what those programs, uh, provide. Once you gather all your information that you needed, put yourself together your own DJ rig that you feel comfortable with.
