 ** Workshop 1 Objective: To define the challenges of the Tango DJ today and how equipment and software can help the DJ to perform live.
Topics include:
- Understanding the Sound (bitrate, compression)
- DJ Software (PC/Mac)
- DJ Hardware

We draw a clear difference in the sound quality of the vinyl vs CD vs mp3 vs flac format. The workshop will lead attendees through different setups in a practical manner and show the progression from the amateur setup to the professional Tango DJ setup.

Duration: 1hr
Audience: DJs (all level DJs - even those who are in the "wanna-be DJ" level), dancers, organisers
