Top 3 DJ Tutorials of 2016

At Point Blank we curate some of the world’s best DJ courses, with alumni Nicole Moudaber, Claude Von Stroke and Patrick Topping making RA’s Top DJs of 2016 poll this year. Each of our students gets their own industry standard set up to work on in our Pioneer-sponsored DJ studio. If you’re interested in enrolling or want to find out a bit more about our courses, follow the link here.

Our YouTube channel is also full of DJ related content for you to peruse, and we have selected our top three of the last year for you below. Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel to stay up to date on everything Point Blank and for more tutorials, masterclasses and more!

Pioneer TORAIZ Overview (FFL!)

Pioneer teamed up with synth legends Dave Smith to bring us their new sampler/sequencer, the TORAIZ SP-16, in what is one of the first big collaborations between a major DJ brand and synth manufacturer. Liam Jones aka Cera Alba (Hot Creations, Mad Tech, Toolroom) takes a first-look at the Pioneer TORAIZ SP-16 and what’s possible with the new DJ/studio kit.

Traktor DJ Tutorial: Traktor for Beginners Part 2: Mixing

Traktor can be a little daunting to beginners at first glance. This is why we’ve created a brand new series focusing on your first moments with the software.  The second of the series, this video is just a teaser of what you can expect to find on our new Traktor Pro DJ online courses.

Rekordbox DJ: Using the Sequencer & Sampler

Pioneer DJ’s Rekordbox has quickly grown to become an extremely powerful cataloguing software and the go-to for DJs organising their music, playlists and sets. This year they expanded the software to become Rekordbox DJ, a fully-functional mixing software capable of creative performance and effects. We decided to give you a sneak peek at what’s possible using Rekordbox DJ’s sequencer and sampler option in the video above.

At Point Blank we offer a wide range of courses at our state of the art London and Los Angeles based studios, or you can study remotely on our online diploma course. If you liked these videos in particular, check out our Complete DJ Course.Each student is provided with their own fully equipped proffesional set up in our Pioneer sponsored studio. If you’d like to come down and see our studios, you can book yourself onto one of our Wednesday or Saturday tours here.
