DJs will always remain tied to their turntables and technology providers are delivering a wide range of professional hardware and software products for spinning in the club. Innovation has gone far beyond classic DJ mixing, pushing technological boundaries and opening up new creative horizons for professionals and amateurs alike. The cost of equipment and records have been a barrier to entry for those passionate about becoming a DJ. During this panel, leading industry players will discuss what it takes to make it in this field, the best purchases for your experience level and news ways to consolidate your technology arsenal to be the most effective and efficient on the job. The audience is invited to participate in an open Q&A with the leaders who are spearheading the digital DJ revolution and extending the very definition of DJing. Whether you're an amateur trying to earn street cred or on your way to #1 Stunna status there’s always room for technology that can take your beats to the next level.
