Hello everyone, I was really happy to stumble upon this forum...you all seem like a good group of people. When it comes to DJ/VJing... I have very little experience. I'm a film editor, been getting decent with after-effects...and I have friends who DJ so I thought maybe I could work being their VJ. Anyways, I've got all my software ready and I've been learning all that... however I'm a bit lost when it comes to hardware. Can somebody help me make a list of what is essential? and maybe what is nice to have but nut neccecary? One of the editors at my work said he has a midi mixer that is worth around $100 that he'll give me..though I'm not even too sure if it's called a "midi mixer" i'm a total newb to audio/video mixing hardware.... I'm not even too sure what kind of projector I should try to invest in... if you can recommend a decent one for me that's not crazy expensive that would be cool too.
