The basic equipment needed to do a live DJ show, consists of a decent laptop with a latest generation processor, HD webcam and broadcasting software. In this article we will give you some suggestions on what you can get exactly if you are not yet equipped. You are anxious to become an Internet DJ sensation, well then let’s begin!
Here is a list of what you will need:
- Laptop with the lastest i5/i7 Intel processor (even better if you can get dedicated graphics)
- HD Webcam Logitech 1080p C920 or for a little bit more money get a Logitech C922 Pro
- Your DJ gear, controller or CDJs plugged into the linein of the laptop
- Xsplit Broadcasting Software, very simple to use but not Free to get all the features! OBS Project is the Free alternative
- OBS Project (MacOS, Linux, Windows) – this software is a Free Download!
Xsplit is a great piece of broadcasting software, but if you do not have the $24.95 for a 3 month license then you can stick with the free OBS. However, you should consider this article on why Xsplit might be better.
Now we are going to explain how to broadcast with OBS Project, so go ahead and download the latest version here.
