I'm interested in learning to DJ and have been looking up local DJ schools that I could learn at for fun (although I like the idea of doing the occasional gig every now and then too).
I'm really confused about what kind of gear a DJ uses. I always thought everything was mixed using vinyl... but now I'm under the impression that this doesn't have to be the case, and that you can use a 'controller' instead.
I don't understand how this would work, would you basically use a controller to mix tracks that you have saved on a computer? or do a lot of DJ's use a controller in combination with vinyl and CDs?
Just thought I'd do a bit of research into what equipment I might need before getting involved.
