Does your DJ have professional audio equipment?

It doesn’t matter how good the DJ is if they have under powered or unreliable equipment. I use a commercial grade sound system with licensed DJ software for great sound and a perfect mix, everytime!

These days almost every disc jockey use a laptop to play their music and, while this is a significant improvement over CDs and Cassettes, some of the software being used to play these songs are definitely second rate.  Free programs such as Winamp, iTunes or Windows Media Player may be fine for a hobbyist in their home, but a truly professional disc jockey will use commercial-grade software.  Software that won't crash or hang, or a program that doesn't fade a song out before it is supposed to end.  In this case the old adage is true - you get what you pay for.

I have chosen OTS AV as my music automation platform.  This is the exact same program that radio stations use throughout the world, including here in St. John’s.  Have you noticed how songs on the radio seem 'louder' than the CD or mp3 version?  Ever been to a dance where the music is sometimes too loud, other times too soft?  OTS AV is intelligent enough to process the music as it is being played through a sophisticated Dynamics Processor, delivering beautiful sound at a consistant volume with no awkward silence in between selections.

Searching and requesting songs are easy and instantaneous.  I puchased my first license for OTS AV back in 2001 and have been using it exclusively as my audio player ever since because I know it works.  However, to make sure all bases are covered I also carry a backup notebook with a second OTS AV License and an additional music library on the micro SD card in my phone, just for good measure.  It's responsible to have back up equipment close at hand.
