    I wanted to start a thread for fellow NTers that are involved in music whether it be DJing, producing, or playing an instrument professionally or just for fun. I myself am an aspiring DJ. I've only been doing it for a little over a year now. I'm still working on the basics, but so far I just love doing it and hopefully I can start doing house parties and possible a guest spot in one of the clubs/bars in my downtown area.

    Anyway, I'd like for this thread to be a spot for musically minded NTers to network, share personal experiences with their progression in their respective field, ask questions, etc

    I know you guys are out there. Hoping to get some good contributions from you all.

    The majority of the times these threads never go anywhere.

    I remember seeing an Official DJ thread a few months ago on here. I was hoping it was still around and I would just start posting in there more. I couldn't even find it that's why I created this one. It sucks because I'm sure there are others like me on NT. I was hoping we'd have a place to discuss our craft and have the same amount of continuous contribution like the Photography, Dressing Better, (insert skin color) Women Appreciation threads. Not quite ready to give up hope on this just yet.

    Hopefully this one stays around.  Could be good for some of NT members trying to do something by networking or hearing advice or tips and past war stories.

    Me and my friend produced this track originally for A$AP, but Yams instead sent it to Joey Fatts who then gave it to Aston.

    I really want to get into being a DJ (yes, i know so does everyone else) but I enjoy listening to music and I think being a DJ would be a great hobby to start in the new year. The only problem is I have no idea where to even start. I have no idea what type of software or hardware I should get. Any help would be appreciated.

    you could use the motu bpm to sample. that's what I use. it's probably the cheapest DAW out there. the price is under 300$. you could use it as a standalone or a plug in ( i use it as a standalone). and buy a midi controller with it ( either an mpd 18, 26, or 32). the reason why I like it so much is because it is so easy to use. you will learn how to sample in no time. but if you have another program that you are using, just go on youtube and search "how to sample with insert program" and you will probably find a bunch of tutorial videos. there are plenty of really good tutorials on youtube.

    I like the way you utilized the 808. Reminds me of Mike Will Made it.

    It used to be easy for me to sample when I had a MPC. Now, I use ProTools or Coold Edit to cut the samples and load it to a bank (FL or Reason). It's much more frustrating because sometime the timing could be off.
