I've been doing music for almost 2 years now.. Spent $7500 on all my gear and I am happy with the results i've been having thus far (Money was spent on synths, programs for producing and also DJ equipment (Only DJ piece of equipment I own is my Traktor Kontrol S4, which is amazing and is fantastic for beginners)
I love to DJ but I also love to produce.. but I am questioning what I should do if I should ever reach a certain point in my musical career (That is, Djing in clubs, which I hope to someday do)
I know I can get there but one thing holding me back is the gap between my home DJ tool (Traktor) and the 'club' standard for Djing (Pioneer CDJ2000/ DJM) - standard for the shows that I go to (Trance)
There is no chance in hell they would let me come and set up my Traktor as an opening act, so my question is:
How did you upgrade from your home dj setup (As I assume most beginner DJ's don't go on whim and spend $6500 - $7500 on the Pioneer stuff) to the Pioneer DJ setup found in most clubs
Rich parents? Rich friends? Split the cost with a friend?
I am going to start saving.. but I wanted to know how other people made it to using the pro stuff!
