Preferred format of music, cd’s, mp3’s, controller, laptop, vinyl and why?
I’m currently using a controller and laptop running Serato. I really like the way Serato runs, and I know the interface very well so it would probably be my preferred software to use. I enjoy using CDJs also. I believe Digital DJing is the future and also the way to go. USB is such a handy thing to use for DJing on the go, which is always good as moving equipment can be a hassle and very tiring.
