What, when and where?
Encouraging our members to DJ is a significant aim of the society. DJ and music production workshops are held every two weeks in the university’s state of the art music facility Kay House, located on the west end of campus near Duryard halls. You can learn or practice your own skills in a relaxed and friendly environment on our professional grade equipment, including two sets of CDJs + mixers, as well as Technics for those wishing to improve their vinyl mixing. All members are welcome to attend, from complete beginners to experienced mixers – committee members are always on hand to provide assistance to those who need it.
Join our DJ & Production Workshops Facebook group. To book a slot, simply comment on the Facebook event when it goes up. Each slot is 20 minutes long. Please bring some of your own music to mix on either USB or CD, or vinyl if you wish to use the Technics.
We recommend downloading and running your mp3s through a programme called rekordbox (http://rekordbox.com/en/) before putting them onto your USB. Tunes already analysed through rekordbox will mean their tempo will remain constant on the CDJs and not jump about. Please ask the Facebook page or a committee member for further information.
We also aim to hold a few day-long DJ workshops throughout the year, enabling members to book hour long practice slots instead of 20 minutes.
Absolutely free! Members only though we’re afraid. However, to attend the workshops, you must purchase a music card for the 2015/16 year, which can be bought from this link (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/music/membership-themusiccard/) or in person from the Music Office located on the bottom floor of Cornwall House.
