Computer DJ

This form of djing has now enabled the 'masses' to step into the dj world at a relitively low cost. Gone are the days where you need to buy two turntables, a mixer and a box of vinyl, now you can simply invest in a controller and attach it to a laptop, then you can emulate the traditional form... all at a fraction of the price.

To DJ on your computer, a starting point will be to use DJ software. Tailored to display a similar interface to CD Decks, Mixers and FX units users can change pitch, beat match and execute all aspects of mixing via the software as you would on a traditional DJ package.

We recommend when utilising computer DJ software to combine this with a DJ Controller. Usually connected directly to your computer via USB and to your speakers, these give you a hands on control with a similar layout to conventional DJ setups. All controls such as cueing, EQ and FX are available, and with recent developments with software packages users can also get more involved with live remixing by layering their own loops, samples and more creative aspects by using a combination of software features and controls. Also, by using some of the controllers available, you can now literally produce 'on the fly', which arguably now emphasises a traditional dj set, giving you an additional layer during your performance.

With many DJs still preferential to the use of vinyl or CD decks, whilst still wanting the advantages of DJ software, many turn to DVS otherwise known as digital vinyl systems. These use time coded cds or vinyl, an audio interface and software which allow the CD Deck or Turntable to control the software. Users can then use additional usb controllers to control such as the Native Instruments Kontrol X1 MK2 other aspects of the software i.e. fx or hot-cues to get even more creative control. This combination of turntables, controllers and software is a popular setup with scratch DJs who want to embrace new technology, for example DJ Jazzy Jeff, who uses SeratoNovation Dicers and Turntables in his setup.

Other producers and DJs utilise computer software to bridge the gap between live music production and Djing, for example Skrillex who uses Ableton Live and his M audio Midi controller when performing.
