Hi everyone nice to meet you and sorry for the longer post. And apologies if this is the wrong place to write this! The website and community here looks impressive and I'm excited to be a part of it.
I'm looking for some advice for an absolute beginner. I've been into trance for about 15 years now - listen to it daily. Unfortunately up until recently I've not been in a position to get into DJing or music production. That has now changed and I'm ready to dive in! I truly love the genre of music and have always wanted to get into this side of things.
My first issue is the equipment. There is a restriction with it - my job involves moving around the UK and Europe frequently. I can't transport speakers or much equipment at all basically. A friend recommended a Pioneer XDJ-Aero although from looking online just now I'm not sure if these are still being sold? What do you guys think about this or are there better options out there? My budget is anywhere up to £1000. And in terms of learning the ropes, will I be able to do this just with headphones?
Second issue is the production software (I'm on an Apple laptop). Will only be planning to learn how to produce trance if that's relevant. Any recommendations would be massively appreciated.
And any other advice on what you'd do starting out in my position or any beginner's tutorials or anything at all I'd truly appreciate it.
