Your Questions: Why Have My Gigs Dried Up?

Digital DJ Tips member Sean writes: “So it seems I’m losing a few gigs now due to the bars I work in cutting budgets and change of management. What should I be doing? Obviously I need to get out there again and make sure I can network properly and not step on others’ toes, but I need ideas!”

Your Questions: Best Budget Sound Card For Digital Vinyl Use?

Our member Angel Burgos writes: “Decided to take my Technics 1200s out of their boxes again! Would like to continue using my turntables and mixer to get accustomed to using DJ software. I got Mixvibes Cross DVS with the software and timecode vinyls from a friend, but I know I need a sound card, and would like one that won’t break the bank (around US$100). Any recommendations?”

Only problem is while there are a few tutorials that explains how to mix using Traktor key notation, most if not all explain it using major minor sharps so and so forth.”
