With the advancement of technology, the music industry scene has evolved as well. DJ’s don’t have to use traditional turntables to mix songs and tracks. Nowadays, there are DJ controllers & Interfaces that help DJ’s mix tracks and songs in the same way as conventional turntables.
DJ controllers are digital media players that allow a person or DJ to emulate the conventional DJ mixer and turntable setup on one piece of equipment, together with a computer or laptop. It basically looks like a combination of a traditional turntable and a DJ Mixer.
DJ controllers & interfaces are devices that are used to help users or DJ’s mix songs or music with DJ software, using features such as touch strips, encoders, jog wheels, pads, faders, knobs, screens, ports, and a corresponding DJ software. Since a DJ controller performs the functions of a traditional turntable and a DJ mixer, they allow many beginners to start off with a controller, at a cheaper price, to learn the realm of DJing. You can hear many people say that most DJ’s don’t require any skill to mix music. That’s far from it. You can use a DJ controller to not only mix songs and music but also create some incredible beats too.
The area for vinyl tracks is replaced with permanent jog wheels that enable the DJ to adjust and mix their songs in the same way a traditional turntable works. A DJ controller also has knobs and other buttons that allow the user to adjust bass, volume, frequencies, and other aspects useful in song mixing and DJing. With a DJ controller you can have a full mixer and 2 decks in a compact form allowing you to do everything turntables, media players and mixers do.
Benefits of using a DJ controller
Numerous benefits come with mixing with a DJ controller. These include:
• They are convenient and compact for DJ’s on the run. They are relatively easy to set up, and you can also preload tracks and playlists, which is fantastic since you won’t have to carry your whole collection.
• The user can use the laptop’s or computer’s processing power to manipulate the sound output. It means that the DJ has more significant effects at his disposal.
• They have sync buttons that enable the user to correctly synchronize songs without necessarily using classic techniques to beat match songs.
