    i saw it was an article on DJ Schools and I thought “oh great! they’ll probably have a Dubspot review!” Then I saw the word “affordable” lol

      well, affordable is a relative term… relative to how highly you value something and how much “scratch” you have in your pocket to spend. 

      the scratch djing stuff dubspot does isn’t online. you have to spend $1500 bucks PLUS go to NYC.i will tell you that if you are new to Traktor and struggling, their digital djing with Traktor Pro 2 is really very good. it was available at a discount the first time they offered it and i decided to pony up the cash. dj endo was the lead instructor on the videos and he is an NI product specialist. i learned a LOT about Traktor and got a good background in the history and practice of djing before it went digital.if you can afford it, i thought it was pretty good. i learned a lot. what i did not realize was that it is really centered around electronic dance music. my interests were really centered around mixing “analog” sources — old rock, soul, funk and Motown — and the Dubspot class isn’t set up to get into that area.

        I can afford it if it really is worth it, i am pretty good with Traktor but was thinking about learning Ableton Live from them. thanks for the insight

     If my kids ever ask for DJ school they are grounded and sent to their room till they don’t suck at DJing.

    The one thing that is almost impossible to find, is a scratch tutorial geared towards the cdj user.

    I just went to Studio Scratches to try to use their website. It is rather difficult if you want to start as a beginner turntablist and work your way towards master. The flow doesn’t make since. I just gave up. However, i did notice that they are starting a schools type system soon.

    I need an Ableton tutor guide one of these. Unless there is one you made already? As im struggling with all these different youtube guides of different ways to do thing with the software that i have no clue about… but trying to get into it.

       There are a number of DVDs out there and youtube vids on Live. I learned most of it myself over the last few years. The askvideo pack seemed to help a friend of mine get up to speed rather quickly and I was looking into the Battery 3 tutorial from the same.  Winksound.com and Dubspot youtube vids show a good deal of the basics.

    DJ Angelo offers extremely helpful vids, and of the four resources listed, I think he does the best job for the beginner or intermediate scratcher.  I use his vids to help go back and polish basic techniques and to practice basic patterns that will help add variety to what I am already capable of doing.  But then he is also able to clearly describe and demonstrate complex techniques as well, and does so in such a way that anyone can come away with an understanding of how to do the technique properly.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Short-E trully is a beast! I only found her youtube videos just last week and my jaw dropped to the floor! How sexy is a girl cutting, flarring and crabbing and doing it better than most dudes can ..mmm mmm mmmh! My dream girl right there!

    Dj Angelo! If more teachers had this approach in my day, maybe I would have continued school. Just saying. He is amazing!
