It has been a hellish week as far as my DJ training is concerned.
There is less than a month to go before I go on stage at the Your Shot competition and I am not that prepared yet as in I don’t have a single set of songs ready to be loaded onto the USB stick and inevitably onto the turntable for everyone to listen to on the day of my showcase.
At the moment my biggest problem is finding songs that I can convert easily onto mp3 so that it can go onto RekordBox.
Everyone, including my DJ teacher is telling me to go to iTunes.
But iTunes songs are in a different format m4p and not mp3’s making it hard for me to load them onto RekordBox.
This is now my biggest challenge in my DJing journey.
I even called the good folks at Apple for help and they told me that most of the music on their platform is copyrighted to the core and that really means that I cannot convert any of the files there into mp3 format.
But I beg to differ, I told the Apple support worker Peter on the phone that the DJ teacher told me just days ago that I can actually do it and he was fiddling around looking for ways on how he could help me when the phone got cut off.
I finally got a subsequent email from them showing me the correct way on how I can download iTunes onto RekordBox but I am still stuck as I am unable to convert all my songs from iTunes onto the mp3 format.
By the time my next lesson arrives, I am supposed to have identified 12 to 13 songs that can stretch to about a 25 minute showcase and cue all the starting points so that the teacher can help me with the preparation for my maiden showcase.
I have identified the songs but my problem now is that I can’t seem to download them onto the correct format.
And with that ladies and gentlemen the jitters has officially set in.
Till my next update, be good.
