I'm completely new to the industry and I need to start buying my own equipment so I can make my own money and start doing my own gigs. I don't really know where to start, so I need the DJ community on NS to help me out with what to buy.
I'm laying off on speakers, light fixtures, etc. for now because I can use his, as of now I need a library (the DJ I helped last night recommended franchiserecordpool.com), a laptop (I have a new one, I should be fine I hope), and a... controller? Not really sure what it's called, it has the cue/load buttons, crossfader, master volumes, the two spintables, etc.. what else would I need to get started? I know I am a long ways off of playing my own gigs but I'm trying to get some equipment.
help me out Ns +K!
