Just get some cheap DJ software (Traktor) and a cheap controller (Herculez, M-Audio, Numark) for the first time. Then later you can upgrade to actual decks and still keep the software...I bet everyone else is going to recommend serato or something more 'professional'

My suggestion shouldn't cost you more than $400-500. I don't know how much money youhave to invest.

If you don't want that silence in between two DJ sets just run both outputs from both DJs into one Mixer so you can mix your last song with the other DJ's first song. That to me is the least complicated thing I can suggest. You can get cheap mixers on pssl.com for like $80 - 90.

Good Luck,

...my 2 cents

Yeah I've thought about that but I have never used turntables or even serato for that matter. ever. Do you think I can just jump into it like that?

I totally forgot about what the club might have. In that case Taylor is right about getting serato. Even if you never used it you can mess around with it at home. It has a display in the middle that shows peaks of your song so you can just move it and sync it so the beats match perfectly....ANY SOFTWARE is easily learned within a week or less....don't be afraid, it is made by humans for humans to use (RZA from Wu-Tang Clan helped) so it shouldn't be a problem.

Hey was that you taylor that was going to use the tb-303 from rebirth ?

have you used it yet? I love that chicago acid "bassline" for something in the future , but i don't know what else i can do with the hardware for 1200$$ , rebirth is free but i'm sure has drawbacks

you said al-p and jesse haves a x0box3......have they used the tb-303 sound in any song you know? does reason have the tb-303 ?

ABL2 is the best TB-303 emulator I have ever used.
And I had a few like rebirt etc...

Reason doesn't have vst's.

Check ABL2 dude it's rad!
I made the "da funk" rif from daftpunk with it and it sounded awesome.

uh, i really have never spotted any 303 ish shit in their mstrkrft stuff , uh, i know the LFOd shit on the reward is cheese is done in massive, para one uses reason and so does surkin, beetroots use a pretty good amount of software, crookers on the other hand has a lot of hardware

bottom line is, do what sounds good to YOU...keyword there is you, i dont care if its an absolute banger, if i wasnt happy with it i wouldnt feel like i was being true to my self or the vision i had for the track

I guess thats true but , how much of that album is sampled and how much is " original material " made by them , if that could be answered .
and then isn't the sampled stuff original because its new drastically different from the origianl material ? I'd partly like to make songs with all my own stuff , but you can't argue with sampling .

MSTRKRFT wants you to copy paste these words to youtube :

Video explains the world's most important 6-sec drum loop



I saw this in jfk's youtube , long but amazing video

you might not know you know the amen break but you do ,

great debate on loop use .

About using samples, that's true, but I think it doesn't really matter.
The most important thing is that you make people happy with your music you know?

If you have fun making it and a lot of people have fun listening and dancing to it then who has the right to stop you?

About Justice, what samples do you think they used?
Did they use samples anyway? Cuz honestly I don't think they did...
I know they used a lot of sampled beats that they got from Stephen and David from Soulwax but that's all.
I never heard anything like the tracks on "cross" before.
Like they made a new style you know?
With the pounding beats and hard distorted leads with the screaming strings and all.
To me that is new enough to call it yours.
