Does anyone DJ?


#1

I know this forum is just for Auxy production, but I would like to know if anyone DJs, and if so, what genres, and what gear?

I play House and Techno in my sets, and I use Traktor, with a few MIDI controllers


#2

I started DJing about 1.5 years ago, so I’ve only done like 7 or 8 sets. This is just for student parties though, so nothing too special.
I mostly play house, but I always like to include a few moombahton and trap tracks as well.
I also use Traktor! (S2 I believe, but it’s not mine)


I'm playing a live set

Nice! Traktor is my favorite software because of all the MIDI mapping capabilities, which none others do.

I know @Kerfuffle has done some DJ stuff in the past, not sure how long ago it was but I am pretty sure he’s pretty familiar with it. I could be wrong though.

I actually was a dj before I was a producer. When I was about 11 or 12 I got my first controller, the Hercules Control Air. I now have that and the Pioneer DDJ WeGo 2. Yes I’m still on basic controllers lol, but my skill as a dj has improved greatly.

i play songs in my car for my friends
hah
so my answer is no
but id like to


#7

I make songs with Auxy and play them…is that considered DJ”ing”


#8

I don’t, but I have a cousin who is a DJ


#9

No, it’s not. It’s considered producing.

Production - Making music
DJing - Playing music

That explanation is kind of simple and It’s way more complicated than that, but that’s basically the gist of it.

Geniunely curious: What’s the difference between throwing on a playlist yourself and being a dj?

Is it that they generally supply the sound equipment and create seamless transitions between songs? Or is there more to it?
