In our school everybody learns to beat match because it is an important skill to have and use for all DJs. For example,
-you may get different gigs (especially in the beginning of yout carrier as a DJ) where you can't use all yout equipment and you need to improvise
-sometimes you may forget some of your equipment and need to use whatever is available at the club.
-if you want to mix songs together with real drummers, where Traktor™ will struggle to detect the changing BPM and hence "Sync" will not work as expected.
No! Tractor™ has a "Sync" button but you can turn that off and use your ears to beat match songs.
No, our studio is fully equipped. During the lessons you will be provided with all the necessary kit. if you would like to practice outside of your lessons but have no kit you can hire our practise room at £10/hour.
