I asked on here about producing before, but I don't really have enough money right now, I could be very wrong but DJing looks cheaper.

I'm looking to spend under £500 if possible, so I can mix CDs and also record mix's to my laptop.

I need all suggestions to be idiot proof as I know literally nothing about this.

if my currency conversions are correct, you should be able to use that money to buy yourself a relatively cheap set of monitoring headphones (to start off with), a midi keyboard, and an audio interface

a much better investment IMO

Really? I can't be looking at the right things then, anything I saw was well over a grand.

while i have no personal experience, i've heard some pretty good things about m-audio equipment (ie audio interfaces and midi keyboards)

I was using my pair of sony MDR dj headphones for at least a year before i got a set of yamaha monitors, they were around 100-150 canadian dollars and fine for what i was doing

that leaves you with a ton of money for the keyboard (if you don't have monitors you don't really need the interface)

really, a basic studio nowadays costs nothing after you've got the computer lol

DJing is far more expensive than producing. You could produce for free if you really wanted to, but DJing has not only the initial setup costs but also a continuing cost for buying new music.

Far more expensive that is, if you go the route of vinyl.. that was my first big mistake lol
