I’ve been reading the entries on the forum for a while but haven’t typed much myself. I’m a Wedding DJ in the south of England and have been DJing for about 18 years. I went through the progression of Vinyl mixing on technics and the Numark TT01 (I think thats what they were called - they had the interchangable Pitch slider and speed selector modules). I went on to CDs for many years, then went to media players. I gave MIDI a wide wide exclusion - I dont want a laptop with music and DJ software.
So now, as I approach being a DJ for almost 20 years, I’ve done a track count of my music collection and find that I’m at 25,000 tracks. I’m wondering how other peoples collections of music are by comparison. I used to buy about 2000 tracks per year at peak, but now that I’ve established a sizeable collection, I’m buying only around 100 new tracks per month / 1200 tracks per year.
I’m jumping in at the deep end here, and I’ll try kicking’ off a Poll with some choices. Hope it works. So, how many tracks are you taking with you to every gig ?
- Less than 10,000 Tracks in my collection.
- About 20,000 Tracks in my collection.
- About 40,000 Tracks in my collection.
- About 60,000 Tracks in my collection.
- About 80,000 Tracks in my collection.
- About 100,000 Tracks or more in my collection.
