I need to start Djing?
To start DJing you need two decks whether they are two turntables or two
CD players, a mixer, headphones and a way to amplify your sound whether
they are powered speakers or passive speakers. I DJ NOW has the Compact
DJ Package at $569.99 that has everything you need to start djíing out
of the box!
I DJ NOW has an assortment of turntables from beginner DJ to the
advanced DJ. For those looking for CD players, we recommend the DNS1200
system by Denon which offers key lock, looping and two hot starts as
well as MIDI control over your favorite DJ software.

I saw a DJ at a club using his laptop. How can
I use my laptop too?
You can use your laptop to DJ by using DJ software. Some popular titles
are Serato Scratch Live and Traktor Scratch Pro. Both these programs
allow you to use your turntables/CD turntables or a MIDI controller to
manipulate the MP3's pr WAV's you have stored on your Mac or PC.
What is RMS?
RMS is the minimum power required to safely operate a speaker without
causing any damage to its components or your amplifier.
How much power do I need for my speakers?
A good rule of thumb when matching any speakers to an amplifier is to
double the RMS rating of the speaker. If your speaker is 300W RMS, you
need an amplifier with AT LEAST 600W RMS. Sending too little power to
your speakers will blow your speakers quicker than if you send it too
What's the difference between a belt-drive and
a direct drive turntable?
A direct drive turntable has a direct connection with the platter and
the motor. This lends to the quick startup times and torque associated
with a direct drive turntable. A belt-driven turntable has a motor that
is attached to a belt that spins the platter.
Can I get a CD player that scratches?
Yes, I DJ NOW offers several CD players that offer scratch emulation.
These include players from Denon, Pioneer, and American DJ. Look for a
player that offers anti-shock, pitch bend and key lock. Anti shock is
memory that prevents the unit from skipping. Pitch bend allows you to
speed up or slow down a song to get it in sync with the track playing
and key lock allows you to speed up a song without changing the pitch or
key of the song.
DMX is a language that allows the lighting, and you, to communicate. It
enables the lighting operator to control individual aspects of the
lights (such as color, gobo, position, speed, and whatever your
particular DMX controlled light can do)
What does intelligent mean?
Intelligent can mean two things. The light is either strictly a linkable
light (master slave) or it runs on DMX control. Either way, it generally
means a light can be hooked up to work in-synch with another of the same
Do I need fog?
The human eye does not see the actual light produced by the lighting
effect. It sees what the light is reflected off of. If there is nothing
in the air to reflect the light, you will not get beams of light going
through the air, only the pattern created on the floor or wall. Many
halls do not allow fog machines as it sets off the fire alarms. Some
allow hazer machines as these produce a wispier smoke but work well
enough to create the beam effect.
How much lighting do I need?
Your budget will almost always be the final determining factor here. In
an ideal situation, four intelligent effects, a centerpiece, and two
strobes is always a great start. Remember, the more you have to offer
your client, the happier you can make them, and the more money you can
Do I need a full trussing system?
A full trussing system allows you flexibility, and great presentation.
This is key to creating a successful party environment, as well as
enabling you to create a great show for most rooms.
What are LED lights?
LED lights are lights that use Light Emitting Diodes to produce the
light. These lights are lighter in weight, output little to no heat, and
also use very little power. A powerful fixture may use 80 Watts maximum.
These lights are fast becoming the norm in the DJ Industry and I DJ NOW
has a vast array to choose from.
