Analogue and digital music players are available depending on taste. Originally DJ’s had to use analogue vinyl players which create a nostalgic sound but can be pricey. However also available now are the digital players that can give a DJ access to thousands of tunes at the push of a button.
Traditional DJ turntables use either a belt drive or direct drive. The main difference between the two is that the belt drive takes longer to get up to speed where the direct drive is instant. It’s really a matter of taste but if scratching is what you’re wanting to do then go for a direct drive player. Remember you will need two turntables in order to keep the music going and mix the songs.
Many DJ’s like to bring their music on a laptop but obviously doesn’t have that vinyl sound. However it certainly has its advantages of being able to store thousands of tunes on a small device rather than having to struggle with large boxes of vinyl.
