  • 1. Why do I need a DJ splittercable and how do I make one? http://dj-lessons.com
  • 2. Just starting out as a DJ? Dont have a dedicatedsound card, and dont want to buy one until youre sure DJing is for you? Or maybe youre DJing from your iPod or iPad using one of Algoriddim’s djay software programs? Or pehaps you have a soundcard, but its having technical difficulties just when youve got a major event scheduled. http://dj-lessons.com
  • 3. Whatever the reason, there are times whenyou dont have access to a DJ sound card or controller but you still need to do a professional job as DJ. And in order to dothat, its obvious that you need to have two audio outputs from your music player - http://dj-lessons.com

  • 7. Once the signal is split, you use a special lead to take the left-hand master output andconnect it to the speakers for the audience to enjoy, while at the same time sending the right-hand monitor output to yourheadphones so you can cue up the next track properly. http://dj-lessons.com
