You may already have the motivation to become a professional DJ and you do have the money to invest on the gears and equipments you need. Also, you may have the proper connections and promoters ready to promote you on big night clubs and discotheques but you are still lacking one thing, which is the skills you need to become a professional DJ.

For one, your mixing really doesn’t sound good, and the fades you do are terrible. Also, your attempts to add a scratching effect sounds like you are scratching the chalkboard, which can be painful to listen to.

If you really want to become a DJ but you have terrible skills as a DJ, then you will need some DJ instructions.

There’s really no need to be embarrassed about it and you have to keep in mind that most DJs started out the same way. In order for you to get started, you will need to get the equipments. After you have the equipments you need for DJing, the only thing that is keeping you apart from fame and fortune is practice.

So, here are some tips that will help you become a professional DJ.

First of all, you need to get the right equipment. It is very important that your equipment should be of high quality. If you purchased cheap decks, then don’t expect that your tempo will be good. Buying a bad set of DJ equipments can only frustrate you. You may need to spend a lot of cash for this but if you get the right equipments, it will be well worth your money.

Secondly, you need to try and add your own drums to your record. To do this, you can have a record playing on one deck and set the tonal arm on the beginning or the end of the vinyl record where no music is written. After doing this stop the record and tap on the record with your finger. The vibration you make from tapping your finger will sound like a bass beat, which can guide your mixing attempts.

Lastly, you have to get some good DJ instruction. Try to remember that you shouldn’t waste your time and money with books. These things will not really give you the proper instruction you need. Instead, try to get a mentor who can really teach you how to DJ. If you can’t find any, look in the internet. There are plenty of great videos here that will be able to teach you how to DJ properly and let you learn how to apply the different tricks and techniques in DJing.

These are the things that you need to remember if you want to become a professional DJ. You have to keep in mind that practicing is the key to become successful in DJing. By having the proper equipments and by practicing as often as you can, you will be able to get the skills you need in order to become a really good DJ who can get the party going all night long.

 

Being the DJ means that you are responsible for keeping the party alive. If you think that you have what it takes to become a good DJ, then you may want to start learning how by first getting the equipments you need.

There are numerous advantages of having your very own DJ equipments. For starters, you will be able to practice right at the comforts of your own home. Also, by having your own equipment, you will be able to have a system that you are comfortable with, which you can bring to parties and clubs that hires you once you become a DJ.

So, just what do you need to get started?

First, you will need decks. It is important that you should have at least 2 decks where you will be able to mix songs together. Each of the deck will have a track or song playing on it. You have a few options on what type of deck you want to have.

You can choose the turntable, where you will be able to play vinyl records. You can also purchase CD decks, which plays CDs instead of vinyl records. This is far easier to operate and the CDs are much more durable than vinyl records. Lastly, you can get the DJ Controller, which are basically used with laptops where you will be able to mix songs that are already in digital format or MP3.

You will also need a mixer. This is where the decks are plugged in to. Basically, this will allow you to control how loud each deck is. Mixers will have different features. For example, it can change the sound being played, such as reducing the bass frequencies or increasing the treble frequencies.

The effects unit is another piece of equipment you will want as a DJ. Although some mixers will already have built-in effects, buying a separate effects unit will give a lot more options when it comes to giving the music you play great effects, such as adding echo, flanger, delay, auto-panning and a lot more.

Look for an effects unit which will be able to synchronize the effect to the BPM or the speed of the song. This will make the effect sound smoother and more natural.

Another piece or rather pieces of equipments you need are the monitors, such as speakers. This will help you create a perfect mix on the music you play. Connected to the back of the mixer, you will be able to hear what you are playing more clearly with the monitors and make sure that you are really providing your audience with good quality music that they can dance to.

Lastly, you will need headphones. Unless you want everybody to hear your attempts in mixing the music, you have to get a decent pair of headphones. This is also connected to the mixer and this will allow you to hear what you are doing or when you are mixing the song. It will allow you to prepare the mixing of the current song in to the next song before you actually let the crowd hear it. This will allow for a smooth transition.

These are the equipments you need in order for you to start learning how to become a good DJ and become the life and soul of the party.
