I've got a Torq Xponent running on the Torq software and 2 KRK Rokit 8 Monitors (the 'old school' box ones). I haven't tried Torq 2.0 yet though.
Had them for a while now but I haven't really used them as much as I wanted to.

I started out with 2 Technics 1200's and a Vestax PMC-05 Pro, all of which was used. I bought a new Torq Connectiv pack eventually so that I didn't have to deal with a bunch of vinyl. It was fun at first but for some reason I couldn't get used to the whole set up and sold it all. Then I discovered the Xponent which had been out for a few years.

By the way, nice set up Euro. Is that a custom table you put your set up on or it comes like that?

Sold the 1200's because it was a hassle to move around and I didn't really have space for them. I don't regret it though, the Xponent is fun to play with.

^ nah bro CDJ's are absolutely not on their way out... Midi controllers are more for personal use i guess, it will never replace the industry standard. You can say Vinyl is going out but no not really...

Alright guys you asked for some demos so heres a few I made when i first started out. Nothing special in my opinion cause i would say i have greatly improved since then but better then nothing. I will make a new Hard House mix sooner or later when i have the patience.

I personally find that when i record a demo i tend to fuck up due to trying to mix perfectly so i hate recording lol.

Vinyl's dead for most DJ uses Tech 1200's are not even being made anymore. Midi controllers are taking over. I don't see a real difference between a CDJ and a midi controller.

thats pretty much creme. pretty much the best equipment out there right now (aside from the cdj2000 which is the mk3 w/ software)

for anyone starting from the bottom up, the midi controllers would be a good start as they take up a lot less space. its also wiser spending in case u really are just starting from the bottom and just trying to figure out if u like mixin or not.

for me, i started with vdj years ago, and only now (because of space) ventured into physical equipment.

Controllers and CDJ's are very similar. going from a controller to a CDJ wouldn't be to hard.

CDJs have a totally different feel then a midi controller and a computer. If you do plan on taking it somewhat serious and maybe begin playing out in the future then go with CDJ's or vinyl.

Learning the concept of mixing and EQ's, Song Structure, ect, a midi controller would be perfect. More like a starter 250cc bike lol and eventually if you like it move up to a 750. You will want to upgrade your equipment as soon as you start getting better and better.



Check out these vids guys, Roger Sanchez blew my fucking mind!

Part 1





Part 2 (better then part 1)

So I'v thought it out.
I would like to be a club dj, and mobile.
My plan is to by a controller, and then get good with that. Save up some money and then eventually switch to cdj 1000mk3 and a djm 800.
What do you think of my plan?

and most clubs have cdj 1000 mk3...

if you're just learning. would it be best to start off from vinyl to learn the basics and work you're way up to all the new computer tech stuff? or just learn with the computer tech stuff now?

go for the 900s instead of the 1000s. theyre generally cheaper and perform just as well and if not better. plus it comes with extra features that the 1000 doesnt have and somewhat the 2000 doesnt have either.

Anyways heres my sample
