Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

Learning To Be A Disc Jockey?

This is possibly the most typical question for Pioneer ddj-rz all beginner disc jockeys or also known as a D.J. for short. The very first thing to do would be to do a bit of research. What kind of D.J. would you wish to be? There are different types of D.J.'s because they D.J. in different ways. The three major Kinds of D.J.'s are:

Mobile D.J./ Mobile Entertainer
Club D.J.
Fight D.J.
Mobile D. J.

They take their equipment on the street and do gigs at Faculties, private parties, special events and so on. They use just about all types of disc jockey equipment including karaoke equipment.

Mobile D.J.'s are entertainers also.

They get the crowd involved by playing games with all the songs, singing, playing music along with other celebration favorites which involve entertaining the audience.

Mobile D.J.'s generally have a disc jockey PA system they bring with them into the gig.

This allows the disc jockey to broadcast the audio . A PA system consists of an amplifier and two Alto Speakers.

Club D. J.

It is the Club disc jockeys ability to perform many types of music and make it seem great that makes them stand out. That is the reason why they get paid the big bucks.

To most it is not a mystery why the club disc jockey is the most sought after D.J.. Among my favourite club disc jockeys that cross all types of disc jockeying is D.J. Cash Money out of Philadelphia, PA.. He has some of the quickest hands on the faders and turntables that I have ever seen.

For their songs many club disc jockeys use Technics SL-1200/1210 Turntables. Now you can locate club D.J.'s using Final Scratch by Stanton or Pioneer xdj 1000 Serato Scratch Live by Rane. Club D.J.'s"play with the audience" meaning they have developed the ability to read the audience and understand what tunes to perform based on crowd response.

This takes some time to develop but as soon as you've mastered this step it allows you to explore fresh songs in the club which you might not otherwise play due to inexperience. This is a great way to make a livelihood if you are able to find a home in a number of clubs.

Fight D.J. or Turntablists

They are a particular group of highly skilled disc jockeys that do tricks with the turntables and mixer. Through years of practice they have been in a position to develop their skills of scratching, blending and most importantly beat juggling.

Beat juggling is if a D.J. is able to manipulate two documents to the point where it seems like he is producing a new defeat from two different ones. Because these skills are highly improved most combat D.J.'s can be a club D.J. or Alto Speakers a mobile D.J. since the skills cross all categories of disc jockeying.

After you know which type of D.J. you wish to be you want to find out what type of equipment disc jockeys use.

The Four questions any fresh disc jockey must ask before Purchasing any new equipment are:

Just how or in what capacity will I be using my D.J. equipment (e.g. club D.J., remixing( for parties)?
How much do I wish to invest?
Where will I purchase all of this D.J. equipment?
What D.J. equipment do I really need?
Each of these three kinds of disc jockeys that I mentioned above utilizes the same D.J. equipment for the large part.

These are:

2 (2) turntables like the NumarkTTX1 Turntables
Two (2) slipmats
Two (2) cartridges like the Shure M44 7 mounted on a Technics Headshell
One (1) mixer like the Rane TTM56 (Mixers)
One (1) set of cans such as the Stanton Guru D.J. 3000 Headphones
