At the moment, you can only connect and use your laptop in HID mode with the equipment in our DJ studios. You will need to bring the following:
- 3 USB A-B cables, 2 going from your laptop to each CDJ and one for the DJM - they only accept USB B (see picture below). 3 cables are needed because our decks are not linked to the DJM automatically, so each component will need to be connected to your laptop.
- A USB hub with 3 USB A ports — to connect the CDJs together, with the DJM straight into your laptop OR to connect the CDJs and DJM together into one port of your laptop
- The full paid version of DJ software such as Rekordbox, Traktor or Serato
- Windows users only - The updated Pioneer drivers on your laptop
Alternatively, here are some videos for setting up your laptop with all main DJ software:
Warning! Serato Mac users, please hold off updating to macOS 14 Sonoma, as it isn't yet supported.
Here's a guide on how to connect your laptop to the CDJs and DJM, if you're a Virtual DJ user. Despite you are welcome to try it, this has not been tested by us and it isn't actively supported.
Are you in a room with CDJ 3000s instead? This guide will be the one you're looking for.
