Why You Need Special Equipment for DJing

By definition, DJing is all about manipulating recorded sound. Thus in order to DJ properly, you need to be familiar with the sound equipment DJs use and be able to handle it well.

The special features that the DJs need to do their job separate DJ gear into a category of its own. DJ equipment is very different – in both its features and price – from what you’d encounter in a typical electronics store. In other words, your parents’ record player or a consumer grade CD deck ain’t a good fit for DJing.

This section of DJing Tips deals with the DJ equipment and everything that goes along with it. You’ll learn what pieces of equipment you should buy and how to choose your gear wisely. I’m also explaining in great detail what all those buttons, faders and knobs are for and how to handle them like a pro.
