in advance I want to apologize for my English (I'm German) but I hope you will get what I mean!
I want to start mixing music (I'm an absolute beginner, never did anything like this before) but I don't want to spend too much money on the equipment, because - who knows? - maybe mixing really isn't my thing.
Now I think there would be a good opportunity to start this because a friend of mine would sell me his old Mixer. It's a Hercules DJ Control Steel, he bought it ~2 years ago and used it very rarely (like 5 times or so).
Now to my questions:
Is this mixer good for beginners like me?
How much money would you spend on this?
Do I need something else to start mixing? I mean, I got pretty good headphones, a solid stereo equipment, a notebook on which the software should run without any problems and enough music on it.
So, all in all, would you call this a good opportunity for me?
Thanks in advance
