Basic DJ Learning is what i seek

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming that you mean becomming a DJ in Second Life?

Becomming a DJ in Second Life requires you to know how to DJ in real life.

But with that being said, the first step is to DJ in real life, since in Second Life it's exactly the same thing, just with more (or less) steps involved, depending on how you look at it.

If you have a turntable and/or mixer, or any external MIDI equipment, you'll have to hook that up just like you were playing a show irl, except you may want to just plug your monitors in, or headphones, whichever you prefer.

You'll also need a dj program that can broadcast. I reccomend VirtualDJ, I have been using it all of my professional career as a DJ and have nothing but good things to say about it.

This is where it gets a bit tricky. I've never DJ'd in SL before, but I vaguely know how it works.

The venue that you're playing for should have a broadcast server that you connect to through VirtualDJ or whatever software you're using. You'll have to talk to the venue owner on how to connect to it.

You'll also need a microphone to interact with the crowd with. Venue owners will be more likely to hire you again, and club goers will be more likely to tip you (or pay you directly) if you interact with them.

And lastly, a decent computer. You'll be running SL, your dj'ing program, and broadcasting a stream, so your cpu will overheat and crash you if you don't have a decent system. You could also use two computers, one connected to sl and the other running the dj and stream software.

Hope this helps!
