If you want to play in clubs, you can decide that you want to be a DJ at Pioneer CDJs instead of trying to take your own equipment with you. Don't think that you have to do anything special or complicated to move from DJ controls to CDJ controls; it's like driving a car from another brand, as I said before. In this video, you'll learn how to set the levels correctly, providing a clean, distortion-free sound source in the mix or speakers. If you want it to sound louder, you must learn to “balance” the levels at all points between the CD and the speaker.
It's as if a CDJ-3000 expert explained all the functions to you, so you'll have the confidence to play on CDJs even if you've never used them. One way to practice mixing at home as if you were using CDJs is to put your DJ software in the library view so you can't see the waveforms that move. DJ software stores vital information about your music in a database, and that database must be converted to work with CDJs. The CDJs will be configured in such a way that all the units have a single USB “visible”, that is, it will not be necessary to connect a separate USB for music to each player, as was the case in the past.
I would like to go with what now seems to be the industry standard, and that's Pioneer CDJs (I guess their controllers would work almost the same way as their current CDJs). If you're used to playing with a remote control in your room, moving to a DJ set and a mixing desk can be overwhelming. So how did you learn with CDJs? How can I become familiar with the industry standard in mixing equipment without having to buy all the equipment? We've created a free two-hour video manual and training tutorial for the Pioneer CDJ-3000, which contain everything you need to know to go from DJ controllers to CDJs. Nowadays, the best way to think of CDJs is as a universal, highly adaptable DJ camera that, if properly configured with a mixing console, can be used to play music from a USB, without the need for a laptop.
