Traktor DJ Studio
As a singer/songwriter/dance artist just getting my feet wet in DJing, it's an interesting time to throw myself in the mix. Just as CDs were the new vinyl, mp3 files are establishing themselves as the new CD. I'll save the debate for another day, but it's safe to say that as a novice DJ, the thought of simply grabbing my laptop and external hard drive instead of cases and cases of CDs was very tempting.

Vestax VCM-100 USB Midi Audio Controller Review
They say everything gets better with age, and DJing is no exception. I can remember the days of lugging around crates of records weighing 50 pounds each. Of course I was in better shape then.
