DOES THIS COURSE QUALIFY ME TO PLAY AT CLUBS?
It is very important to understand at this point that this course is a Digital DJ course and not a Club Standard Course. To be able to play at a club or an event, you need to be familiar with the club standard players and not only with digital dj’ing using a software. If you are looking to start a career and not only pursue a hobby then we recommend that you either sign up for the Essential DJ Course or for the DJ Master Certificate Program (in which you will also learn about digital performance)
Many of the world’s top DJs such as Carl Cox, Nicole Mudabber, Richie Hawtin .. are into digital dj’ing and use Traktor on stage, however, they did so after excelling the techniques of dj’ing using club standard players.
WHAT IS A MIDI CONTROLLER?
A MIDI Controller is a hardware that is designed to look like a dj setup with 2 decks or more, and a mixer. The MIDI controller controls a dj software that is installed on a computer and which does all the mixing functionalities and generates audio via the built in soundcard. The controller alone does not process the audio files and therefore does not take any USB sticks. It only sends your commands to the dj software and orders it to do everything related to track browsing, loading, cue’ing, mixing, looping, beatmatching, using effects and so on ..
Can the controller do what the club standard machines do? Well, it can do much more ! Learn more about MIDI Controllers in this blog post →
