This is a traditional hardware course, where attendees will develop, hone, and master their skills on the industry-standard Pioneer CDJ setup. We got the latest installation from our education partners at Pioneer 2 X CDJ2000NXS2 and a 1 X DJM900NS2.

These sessions are highly practical and are heavily focused on the hardware, and developing the skill-set required to qualify as a DJ.

By the end of these sessions, you will be able to gain a better understanding of the art itself. Be comfortable using an industry-standard hardware DJ setup. Ideally, all attendees will be able to mix songs of their choice and develop their musical repertoire.

In the first session, we dissect and deconstruct the music composition “formula”, how songs are structured and where are the best key areas of mixing in and out, and developing a playlist of tracks that cohesively tell a story. We review the looper/cutter functions and discover all available options and modes.

Using Vinyl mode as an alternative play mode and use as a creative tool. We intentionally depend less on technology and focus on training our ear-brain-hand coordination. We also enter part 1 of the effect suite on the mixer. We further explore Rekordbox features to enable us to make the best out of our music library.

In the 2nd session, hot cue creative play and performance concepts are learned, also part 2 of effects is now completed and further ear-brain-hand coordination is enhanced through practical class exercises.

In the 3rd session, we prepare our Rekordbox installation to record and produce a DJ set and which avenues we can work with online to promote our skillset. In this session we delve deeper into the technical aspects of Rekordbox and the CDJs, we create tags, filters and searchable playlists; we also program and create a personal profile of the hardware setup based on our favorite preferences. We transfer the above functions into Rekordbox to create a seamless integration with our Pioneer hardware and controllers.

In this last session, we discover external connectivity options using the RMX1000 app and others for further performance enhancements.
