Hi there guys, i feel bad to have just registered an account and start posting a new thread, but I hope my question is still valid.
I have no intention to make a career out of this, I'm just looking for a hobby something to sink a few hours of my weeks and sink my brain in some good tunes, i'm sure you share the feeling.
So, yeah, i'm seriously considering getting into DJ's and/or producing, I have time so I want to start slowly.
I'd say, I probably want to start by making sets, put them out there, have fun, get feedback on them and get a feel for what key different tracks are (i don't even technically know what this means, i just read a lot about the importance of keys, just as much as beat matching).
So I was thinking about either get a really cheap controller and start with that, or just start making a few sets using software, and with that my first question, what software would you recommend to get started knowing one has no controller/decks?
I hear Mixmeister is really good, so is mixxx?
I've tried Traktor for a bit, but it's way too complex for my level of entry so I wanna bring it down a notch and start out with something easier. Any ideas?
I know you guys must get these kind of questions all the time to the point of being frustrating, i've made my research I just need an honest opinion on a good way to get started, and i think starting with software first is prolly a good call.
Thanks a lot guys!
