Well i got my first big show (yay me)
being flown to puerto rico, november 17th.
I've djed a few times at small parties with friends, ive practiced, and im pretty good at it. I have 2 issues to deal with though,
1) ive been practicing on a real (hardware) 4 track mixer routed with midi into my desktop, using traktor for decks. Is this gonna translate well when i DJ off of who knows what system at a festival? for people who DJ alot, what options are usually open for choosing what type of system you want to DJ off of? If i have to go all pioneer hardware will i be fine?
2) I've barely ever pirated/ripped music, i have too much respect for the artists i like but no cash to support them. Im good enough friends with label managers and artists to get a lot of tracks from them, but it still wont be enough for a well built diverse set. Going about starting a WAV music collection costs a ton of money and time, its too late and i dont have money for the latter.
