It seemed so overwhelming at first. So much to keep track of, so many buttons to push (and not to push), so many mistakes to be made. Would I be able to do this? After all, I’m just a guy loving the music. Did I have the skills required to pull this off? For a long time, I was unsure. My controller arrived four days ago, and that would be the very first time in my life I ever touched a piece of DJ equipment, with the small exception of some drooling at the not-so-local DJ store. When I opened the box and unpacked the DDJ-RZ I felt so much excitement, so much anticipation, and to be honest – a decent amount of fear. Would I, just a normal geek, be able to pull this off?
Even before I got my controller, I had already signed up for the DDJT beginner’s course. I decided not to glance at it, though tempting, before I got my equipment. After getting all my equipment mounted, configured and set up – my pulse dropped from 120 to 60 two minutes into Phil’s first video. Bit by bit, the pieces to the puzzle were laid down in a way that anyone – regardless of prior experience (or in my case, lack thereof) – would be able to understand. For the first time, I felt I had a chance at this. This was a task I, with the guidance and help from Phil and his peers in the DDJT team, would be able to master.
I have just started my journey, and I am having more fun that I had ever dreamed of having – thanks to you. Your guidance, your skills, your collaboration with your users and your dedication to this place is such a big part of this journey, and I couldn’t express enough gratitude for it.
So to you, Mr. New Guy sitting on the fence – waiting for a bird to whisper the first words to get you started – this is where you start your journey. Right here, with DDJT and their team of professionals, and their followers here on the forums.
