But, what are some basics? What do you need to get started. Mixing requires 2 turntables. This is essential to be able to mix records. You have 2 main options when it comes to buying turntables. The first is that there is the traditional vinyl versions. Next there is the latest CDJ’s as they are often called. These turntables allow you to mix music on CD’s. The choice is open to you.

Another new addition that you will find on the latest turntables, is the USB functionality. This is a great feature, as it means you can connect the turntables to the computer. This allows you to do so much more! Imagine being able to save mixes you have made onto PC or laptop. You can edit them, and improve them with sound editing software.
