Other DJ Equipment
So you have your DJ turntable and our laptop ready to go, but you aren't all set just yet. Making it big as the next hot DJ requires more than just basics. Flair, efficiency and a solid setup are some key factors you need to get right to be well on your way to a successful digital music career. Shop for other DJ equipment to amass a well-rounded kit you can use to advance your EDM dreams.
A good DJ needs a solid laptop stand. Buy a three-layer stand so every essential is well within reach. This type can accommodate a controller, a microphone and your laptop; plus, you can fold and adjust it for easy transport. For a basic setup, all you really need is a simple alloy laptop stand, especially if your computer is a lightweight model.
All-in-One DJ Controllers
While expensive upfront, all-in-one controller systems can easily pay for themselves in the long run. Suited to advanced users, they can be a good investment for beginners who are truly committed to advancing their careers. With two turntables, MIDI controllers, knobs, equalisers and the whole shebang, the skilled DJ will not be left wanting when equipped with an all-in-one.
Every DJ needs a reliable table or surface. Get a sturdy cockpit that can fold up for transport so you can take it to any gig in town. Some workstation tables even have their own sound reactive lighting systems so the audience can watch the beat drop. A truss table is simple but efficient because though it looks like a skeleton of a table, its structural integrity is second to none.
Without headphones, a DJ is nothing. Wireless headphones are ideal so that you can bang your head with the crowd or move freely while you build up your next melody or drop. Wired monitors are also great due to the eliminated latency and crisp sound quality coming directly from your DJ equipment.
