Guide to choosing the right DJ controller...

Guide to choosing the right DJ controller...

With so many DJ controllers available on today's digital market, it can sometimes be hard to decide which controller is best suited for your requirements. How many channels do you go for? Which software is best? Should you opt for the controller with effects or without? Worry no longer! We are here to help. The world of DJ controllers can be a fast moving, technical jungle, however choosing the right controller is crucial when upgrading your existing setup or even just starting out! Here at Getinthemix.co.uk, we stock a huge number of popular brands and models. Everything from Reloop & Numark, right through to the higher end DJ controllers by Pioneer & Native Instruments. Not only DJ controllers, we also have a large stock of professional studio controllers, samplers & MIDI controllers. Nearly all of today's DJ controllers will include most of the standard features you would find on a DJ mixer, such as full EQ, channel faders & a cross fader, however not only does using a controller make setup time, transportation and music location / storage so much easier, but you can now literally have all of the control at your very finger tips. Choose from an array of professional software such as Native Instruments Traktor, Rane Serato or Virtual DJ which will come included with the controller you have purchased and get mixing straight out of the box. You may be looking for something small and easy to use, or within a low budget such as the Hercules DJ Instinct or the Numark Mixtrack, both more than capable of mixing your music together with a fantastic variety of built in features, and very simple to use! Maybe your looking for a bigger model with a few extra channels to add your CDJs or turntables to? The Numark Mixtrack Pro, Kam Digi Two or the American Audio Versadeck are prime examples of this, allowing for external media devices to be connected along with 4 deck mixing through the included software! Moving up the line a bit, you will come across models such as the Pioneer XDJ-Aero, Pioneer DDJ-SX, Native Instruments Traktor Control S4, Pioneer DDJ-T1 & the Numark NS7 FX which all include specialist software jam packed with features and on board FX which are controllable from the controller surface. All of these controllers will allow the user to scan quickly through your music collection and even load tunes direction onto each deck using just one button. Scratch in real time using the on board platters, or simply mix two tracks together by again using the platters to speed up or slow down when mixing. You will find sample / trigger pads on a few of the higher end controllers, allowing you to drop your own samples into the mix or even just cue and trigger a track live. All of the controllers we stock feature looping functions which can be enabled, edited & released from the controller surface, which the software will then mimick instantly, once again allowing for full control when live in the mix! Your options are endless when choosing the right controller for you but here at Getinthemix.co.uk we pride ourselves on offering the best advice and general help available before and after your purchase. We always have a mammoth number of DJ controllers in stock and available for next day delivery. If you are still not sure, please feel free to give our helpful sales team a ring who will be able to assist you further.
