Before you head down to the studios, have a quick read over the information below to make the most of your booking.


What to bring

You can bring your tracks/songs in any of these formats:

  • USB drive. Make sure your USB stick is formatted in FAT32, and don't forget to process the tracks through Rekordbox beforehand. Get more info on formatting your USB here.
  • A laptop. You'll need to bring any cables you need to connect it to the CDJs e.g. USB A to B or USB C to B and a USB hub. Get more info on connecting your laptop and what you'll need here
  • CDs. Take it old school.
  • Back-ups. It’s always worth bringing a backup copy of your music just in case.

You'll also need

  • Headphones. A wired pair of headphones with a 3.5mm or quarter-inch jack to plug into the mixer — we don't provide headphones in the studios.

Before your visit

  • Use Pioneer's free Rekordbox software to prepare your tracks in advance, allowing you to make full use of the CDJs.
  • Check out the wealth of info in our FAQs about the DJ studios and how to get set up ahead of your visit
