Complete DJ Bundles information
Bax Music's experts have compiled various complete DJ sets that include the essentials needed for an immediate start. Whether you're going for a fully digital DJ set, a CD player set or a vinyl-compatible turntable set, there's a package here every for every DJ - from basic to high-end and from beginner to pro.
What Do DJ Sets Include?
DJ sets usually include a DJ mixer and two turntables or tabletop players, but you'll also find combi-players & sets: all-in-one units that feature a built-in DJ mixer as well as built-in CD players.
The DJ mixer (or mixing console) forms the foundation for any DJ set. It's the central bit of kit that everything else is hooked up to, allowing you to switch between audio signals, ensure smooth track transitions and much more. Most DJ mixers support line and phono signals, with some even being able to send and receive audio via USB.
In essence, a turntable is a specially-designed record player for DJs that comes equipped with a motor and a pitch fader that allow you to change the playback speed. DJs can set up a turntable as a playback device by connecting it to a DJ mixer.
A CD player is another possible audio-source that can be hooked up to a DJ mixer and used to control things like playback and playback speed. CD players are also known as tabletop media players and, in addition to CDs, usually offer additional playback via USB sticks and SD cards loaded with audio.
DJ controllers combine a DJ mixer and two media-players in one, but in most cases, using a DJ controller requires a computer loaded with supported DJ software. As such, the integrated 'media-players' aren't real media-players but mimic the functionality based on digital files - unless we're talking about all-in-one DJ controllers, which can be used as standalone units without the need for a laptop or computer.
Monitors and Speakers
The best sets give DJs a way to monitor their own sound, which is essential for mix-based quality control and it explains why most DJ mixers and DJ controllers are directly compatible with monitor speakers. Monitors alone are fine when you're practising. Higher-end mixers and controllers usually feature a separate output for the DJ booth, supporting live use via a main output that can be connected to a PA system and a DJ booth monitor output for your monitors.
Essential DJ Accessories
