Pioneer Dj

How do you start to train to be a DJ?

I love dance music, and would love to become a DJ as a side job. But, I have no idea how to even start? Are there classes? How do you learn the software, turntables and mixers? Where can I start???
Thanks!

To start off ─ you'll need a lot of tracks, preferably over 2,000+ and more. To be a DJ, you must have interest in music, preferably all types of music genres. Etc...

Things you'll need ─ A DJ needs a mixer, CD decks, turntables, headphones, a Macbook Pro, and DJ software such as virtual DJ, serato, or traktor. Etc...

The set up ─ The complete set up for mixing requires at lease 2 CD decks or 2 turntables, 1 DJ mixer, and headphones. You can invest into PA pro audio equipment, mics, laptops, softwares, and other plugins later. A DJ will need all this for his gig.

Mixing ─ Mixing is pretty easy, all it is is beat-matching a song with another song and pressing play. Make sure you set a proper cue point for mixing. It's also important to know the beats per minutes of your songs, (BPM). Some DJs just do a simple mix and press play on the other deck to cue up and beat-match it with another song.

The software ─ There are different types of softwares. It allows DJ's to easily set hot cues for mixing, set loops, set effects, stream over millions of music, albums, mixtapes, and to see the analog display of the track. All these can also be done on the equipment by hand as well. Etc...

Channel ─ These are not the channels in a water system or on the TV. In DJ term, the channels are the RCA analog inputs on the mixer. You connect your CD decks to them. A 4 channel mixer will allow you to connect 4 CD decks. Channel 1 will be for CD deck 1, channel 2 will be for CD deck 2, channel 3 will be for CD deck 3, and channel 4 will be for CD deck 4.

CD Decks ─ These are not the CD players in your home stereo or in your car. These are the special kind of CD players designed for DJing. All CD decks are different. They mainly come with these functions. Pitch control, loops, effects, pause button, cue button, play button, hot cues for mixing, jog wheel designed for vinyl or scratching.

Turntables ─ These are alike the CD decks but a little different. They mainly come with these functions. Pitch control, pause button, cue button, play button, vinyl wheel designed for scratching.

Mixer ─ These allow DJ's to mix songs. There are different types of mixers. They all come in different size, shape, and with a different amount of channels. The most common type of mixers used by DJ's is a 4 channel mixer. There's a lot of functions, control knobs, and settings on the mixer. I will only talk about the important functions.

The gain ─ these are the volume control for a single channel. Each channel will have a gain.

Treble ─ these are the high sound frequency. Example, 10kHz - 20kHz. (10,000Hz - 20,000Hz).

Mid ─ these are the mid range sound frequency. Example, 1kHz - 10kHz. (1,000Hz - 10,000Hz).

Low ─ these are the low sound frequency, the bass. Example, 20Hz - 500Hz. (20Hz - 500Hz).

Master ─ this is the master volume control for all the channels.

Balance ─ this is the sound balance level output for the loudspeaker or headphones. Keep it in the 12'clock position for proper balance output. If you don't, one loudspeaker will be quieter than the other.

Hertz, (Hz) ─ These are sound frequencies. They are measured in Hz. We can hear from 20hz - 20kHz. (20Hz - 20,000Hz.)

Software equipment & controllers ─ I would recommend for you to get the American Audio VMS4.1 MIDI DJ controller. It's great for beginners and professionals. It comes with virtual DJ limited edition. That's the software you'll be running on your laptop with this controller. You can upgrade to virtual DJ 7 pro if you want.

You can also invest into more of a professional DJ equipment and set up. Pioneer DJ equipment offers great durability and mixing for club DJ's and mobile DJ's. It is good and expensive. You can get (2x) Pioneer CDJ-850 or CDJ-2000. The CDJ-2000 is the club set up. If you can afford it, get the CDJ-2000. Get the DJM-700 or DJM-800 mixer. But as of right now, I would highly recommend for you to get the equipment I advised to get. You don't wanna blow your budget.

Tips ─ A good DJ will always be prepared and have the next music in session to be played. This is called cueing another track or listening to another track through your headphones while the current song is actively being played on the loudspeaker.

Ignore the lessons, classes, or courses. They have tutorials about DJing on Youtube. You can start buying your equipment and start DJing!

If you need help or want more information, you can email me.
