Trust Computer DJ Equipment to Make Your Life Easier
DJs and VJs performing in the digital domain use computers and laptops to play their music. There are many advantages to being a computer DJ/VJ. The use of hard drives, flash drives, sound cards, and other computer equipment enables the Computer DJ to have a larger (and more portable!) music library, more sound options, the ability to work with more audio channels, and many other abilities.
If you want to be part of an exciting style of DJ and ride this big new wave you have come to the right place! Our huge selection of computer DJ equipment and expert advice will help you take advantage of the wide array of products that are available as you develop your DJ skills and enjoy the creativity that comes along with playing and making music.
Obviously, a computer will be the centerpiece of this type of rig. Other necessary DJ equipment includes spare hard drives or portable media to carry files, a high quality sound card, and a mixer with a digital in to give you maximum control over your final product. Portable external sound cards are a great way to add extra outputs for performing or to make recording to your laptop easier. If you want to prepare tracks ahead of time or want to simulate the feel of standard DJ equipment on your computer you will also need DJ software and one of our DJ controllers.
Most DJ software works in conjunction with external DJ software controllers or some other midi device such as a keyboard. Which one you choose depends on the feel you prefer. We have DJ controllers that plug into your laptop, interface with software, and work very similar to a standard DJ turntable and mixer set up. This is ideal if you just want to mix music or scratch. The other option, a keyboard midi controller, will allow you to create music using recorded and stored sounds and to record and play samples live during the mix. You should choose from all these components of computer DJ equipment based on the type of DJing you want to do and the capabilities of your current hardware.
One last realm of digital DJ equipment to consider is computer VJ tools. Video DJs throw video or still images up on monitors to add an extra level of interaction with music. If you are interested in being a DJ/VJ, be sure that the DJ software you choose and your laptop have this capacity.
