Q - This may seem totally left field, but hear me out! Basically, we're throwing a house party this weekend and people always say I should DJ since I have a great music selection and have experience DJ'ing in the past. However, I sold my setup a long time ago. All I have now are my Macbook and a nice set of speakers. Do you guys know of any USB turntables and/or software to make my party rock? Thanks!!
A - You've come to the right place, Robert. Actually, we have a few friends who spin at nightclubs and they're all in love with Vestax's Spin DJ USB Controller and its associated DJay Software.
What you get is a digital turntable that has a mic input, external headphone output (so you can listen to your music before letting it go live), and a USB-powered connection. Not only that, but the software plays nicely with your iTunes collection and will definitely put you back on top as the pro DJ that you once were.
You can grab it from Apple for a friendly price of $250 (comes with a mic, too!).
