The Couch DJ. This is too fun.

Sitting on the couch with a tablet or a smart phone and mixing beats is a lot of fun.   It is VERY inexpensive, comparatively speaking.   This setup will work on your iphone and ipad.   It is possible it works on android devices as well but I haven’t checked in on that yet.

You likely have a good amount of music already on your tablet or smart phone.  Why not mix up your research routine by chilling on the couch and exploring your music meshing, beat matching or queue point options.

This very unique and specifically engineered cable will allow you to be the couch DJ.  It’s so fun.   Griffin engineered a very special type of cable splitter to allow queuing music to go out one cable (to a set of headphones or ear buds) and the other cable to carry the live signal!

 

The DJay app by Algoriddim is also a must have.   It’s 2.99 and is worth every single penny.

 

You’re welcome!   😛

What is a DJ Controller Board?

A DJ Controller board is a piece of hardware that allows you to interact with music in several ways.  There are different types of boards with different features but for the most part they allow you to access a music supply (USB stick, laptop harddrive, etc), queue music to play, set sync points, taper treble, bass and midrange frequencies, add effects to, sample and generally mix music.

What are all of the elements in the equation of being a DJ?

–    Hardware  (Classic Turntables, DJ Controller, iPad, iPhone, Speakers, Stands, Microphones, Headphones, Laptop, )

–    Software  (Organize music, playlists, songs by BPM, genre, etc, Operating Systems, Firmware)

–    Booking a venue or party, marketing your skills

–    Music collection!

We are going to focus on the most viable method of being a DJ.  Using a collection of music with a DJ Controller board.

This site does not speak to the allowance or dis-allowance of playing music in a public forum.  Please refer to your local laws as well as any copyright legality with the music you choose to play.  Most software that you may use will have terms and conditions of using the software as well.  Please read all pertinent verbiage at your discretion.

Having said that…   It is fairly easy to get off the ground and going with a DJ Controller board.  Get the appropriate hardware for you.  Get some acceptable speakers.  Import or access your approved music supply and start playing!
