Denon DJ: A History Lesson

Ever wonder how all those knobs and thingies that make modern DJing possible found their way to your mixer? Believe it or not, it all started over a century ago with a company that still rocks the DJ world today.

"We are one of the oldest audio companies in the world [1910]," says Denon DJ's Brand Manager Silvio Zeppieri. "It's that history, one that stretches back to the first phonographs, that continues to inform our ability to forecast and create the features so many DJs today take for granted -- Auto Cue, Instant Start, Fader Start, Frame Search and Pitch Control are all a result of the core digital technology first developed for our professional broadcast players."

More recently Denon DJ had given us the legendary DN-4000F, the mobile industry's first dual CD-player, and introduced even more how-did-we-ever-live-without-them features such as Hot Start, Seamless Looping, On-Board Sampling, Wide Pitch, Memo Cues, Brake Effect, Key Adjust, the jog wheel and, as one might expect from a company whose roots reach back to 78rpm records, the active spinning platter.

Further proof of Denon DJ's dedication to the art of interactive turntable performance can be seen today in the succession of active platters it continues to bring to market, most notably its new flagship media player and controller, the SC3900.

Not bad for a bunch of old timers. ;)

How's Denon's second 100 years shaping up?
"Our vision is to continue to inspire and empower DJs to reach for the highest levels of performance and creativity by providing innovative gear at the best of prices," says Zeppieri. "Ultimately, though, it's our customers who determine our direction as we continue to provide the products that best meet their ever-changing needs. There's no question that DJ controllers have taken over. Just five years ago, you could count the number of DJ controllers on one hand; now you'll need a spreadsheet!" ... And a Denon. :)

The Denon MC2000
The best entry-level controller/mixer ever? Probably.
Mapped to plug-and-play with Serato DJ Intro (and for a modest fee, Serato DJ), the Denon MC2000 is bringing big-time tech to the budget-minded masses with the latest in intuitive layout and controls.

Up-front, the MC2000 is out of the box ready: it gets all the power it needs via the included USB cable and the connection between it and your computer. From there, Serato DJ Intro provides all your basic two-deck digital mixing features as well as the ability to easily manage your library via Serato Crate and/or advanced iTunes® integration. Exporting high-quality audio is likewise a breeze thanks to a USB interface that connects to speakers wherever you find them: in a club, at a gig, or just around the house burning through an evening of mash-ups.

With its portable design and solid build borrowed from Denon's pricier DN-MC6000, the MC2000 is the ultimate weapon in your DJ arsenal, completely redefining the quality and usability of its class, with every single detail aimed at improving value and retaining simplicity without compromising features and sound quality.

DJ Success Coach Stacy Zemon
Suggests Some New Year's Resolutions for 2013!

"If you want your chances for business success to be greatly enhanced in 2013, there are 10 New Year's resolutions you can make and apply throughout the year", say's Stacy Zemon. "Repeat after me:

1. I will...set realistic goals. Goal setting is a valuable habit - if the goals lead to success rather than distress. Make a New Year's resolution that the goals you set will be goals that are achievable,rather than unrealistic pipe dreams that are so far out of reach they only lead to frustration.

2. I will...make business planning a weekly event. Planning is vital if you want a healthy, growing business. Business planning lets you take stock of what worked and what didn't work, and helps you set new directions or adjust old goals. Not only will this help you avoid costly mistakes and stay on track, but you'll feel more focused and relaxed.

3. I will...promote my DJ business regularly and consistently. Too often the task of promotion slips to the bottom of the to-do list in the press of urgent tasks. If you want to attract new clients, you have to make it a priority. [Read More]
