Our Live DJ Workshop Partners you with Music Industry Pros

A Live DJ’s best friend, the digital audio workstation (DAW) has become a staple for many electronic musicians. Depending on the processing speed and storage of your laptop, it’s like having a sound studio in your computer bag. Pre-loaded with instruments, sample packs, and the ability to store and arrange your files, a Live DJ should never leave home without their DAW.

But there’s more to becoming a Live DJ than just having the right DAW or DJ controllers, you also need to know how to use your tools as a pro DJ. That’s where the Recording Connection comes in. By working one-on-one with an experienced DJ inside of a real-world studio, our DJ workshop is much more than beat matching, sound design, and mixing techniques.
