Should you buy your music on CD or from iTunes?
Before I talk about that, I feel that it’s important to mention a DJ’s best source for music first: the DJ pools!
When you join a DJ pool (for $10, $20 or $30 per month), you get unlimited access to large archives of multiple genres of music. This includes remixes, special DJ edits, clean and dirty versions, instrumentals, and sometimes even video.
Check out my DJ pool video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IO3vO8s9X64
Of course there will be (older) songs that you can’t get from a DJ pool. What is your best option to buy these songs? Some will prefer CD and others stick to iTunes. One is not better than the other.
You can buy CD’s and rip them or you can buy songs from iTunes and burn them on a CD. I do both.
When it comes to genres that I hardly ever need, I just look for a good compilation CD or box set with the most popular songs from that genre. For instance, I wanted to add some Classic Rock to my collection (just in case) and I bought a 8 or 10 disc set with 200 songs for about $12!
Now, whenever the time comes that I would need some Classic Rock, I can just rip those CD’s and add that folder to Serato. Done 😉
Enjoy the video and share the knowledge!
