Every year here at Digital DJ Tips, we conduct a unique survey with you, our community, to find out as much as we can about your DJing, the gear you use, your favourite software and music, your aspirations, and more.
The result is The Global Digital DJ Census, easily the biggest survey of its type conducted anywhere, and today we’re publishing the highlights of the results of that survey. Scroll on for a revealing look at where the industry is at, and where it is headed – at least, as far as you, the 35,073 people from our community who completed this year’s census are concerned. Thanks to all of you for being a part of it.
Alongside the census, we run a prize draw, which is contributed to by practically all the hardware and software companies that supply DJs with the systems they need in order to do their job. So this year we’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to main sponsor Denon DJ, and also to Pioneer DJ, Roland, Serato, Traktor, Virtual DJ, Reloop, Rane, Allen & Heath, Numark, Hercules, Mixed in Key, IK Multimedia, Algoriddim, Beatport, DJcity and Beatsource.
