DJ in my Pocket by Christian Lavey

Music control for the solo entertainer

This ebook describes how any solo entertainer can easily build and set up their own music control system. Many entertainers are looking for an easy set up to be their own sound technician. The system can be operated by the push of a button and the button can even be in the performers pocket.

I tried a lot of hardware and software and I think that I found a good working solution. This system is easy to build, reliable, cheaper than some other sound systems and cheaper as hiring a sound technician. The ebook covers all aspects to setup such a system for yourself.

1st edition 2019, 9 pages.

I take reviewing very seriously -- many people don't. As such, I don't like Hot takes (writing them OR reading them); to that end, let me clarify: I have not put into practice a lot of the suggestions/guidance the author makes in this book -- but I did read it quite carefully.

From a formatting standpoint, the book is fine. One can tell (and he admits) that English is not his first language. Length-wise, it isn't 'War and Peace' or anything, but he gets down to business pretty fast on the topic at hand. He doesn't point you to some super rare, super weird piece of technology. What you are essentially getting here is a guy telling you how to use an Android tablet, some Bluetooth gear and a few other bits and baubles to handle the music for your magic show. He seems to take this book seriously and I will probably put some of his advice to use. I would really like to give this book 3.5 stars -- I would do 4 stars, but $8 is a bit high for what you are getting here.

There is some solid info here, but in May 2024, much of what is here could maybe be found on YouTube with some patient, focused searching. If you are impatient in that regard: buy this book for certain!

I bought DJ In My Pocket years ago....I guess when I purchased it, I wasn't ready for it, it wasn't what I thought it would be, or didn't understand it... I don't know what, but I never really revisited it. So all this time, it was just another magic thing I bought that "went in the (digital) drawer." I know it's not a magic trick but I bought it for a magic show....

.Fast Forward late 2023, I'd decided to actually start putting together a parlor/small stage show. I have never performed a real magic show......I started giving thought to how music could help me in developing my show, but wanted to do it without an extra hand or relying on a music operator.... ..

.I put off trying to figure out how to do it because I knew how it would go.....I would start looking at the music gear sites, then to other online retailers, after that I'd wind up reading message boards night after night and this would go on for weeks......then if I even wanted to try something out, I would spend money on equipment with just the hope something would work.........

One day, I finally sat down to begin the journey.......Ugh........I sat at the computer and had this thought.........I've spent so much time and money on magic and things I don't use, is there anything I have bought that I could take a look at before I start.. Hmm...Hey...! . DJ in My Pocket from Lybrary... ....I should check that out ... .So, I went and found the file and started reading.....

....WAIT......WHAT?!?!?..WOW!!! This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! ....... I LOVE THIS!!!! ..............It was exactly what I was about to spend all that time trying to figure out!!! Thank you!!!! I have over 100 items in my Digital Shelf and this is easy Top 3 for me.
