Getting your Gear

If you're as tech savvy as DJ Moldover, you can build your own controller to DJ with. However, there are tons of controllers specifically made for DJing with a computer by almost every brand name in music equiptment.

What you'll need, besides your computer and the DJ program you choose to work with, is a controller, audio interface (some controllers come with these built in) and a pair of headphones.

When it comes to you controller and headphones, there arn't really any specific things you definately need to look for. As long as it has two channels, a crossfader and EQ nobs, you're good to go.

A good place to look for quality products, with DJ reviews of the equiptment, is Turntable Lab.

however, there are a few other popular programs you can choose from that may work easier for you.
