What’s the difference between a DJ, an MC, and a Producer? All three are similar in the fact that they all entertain an audience, one just does it with music, one with words, and one with both. (An “MC” is a “Master of Ceremonies”. From what I’ve learned over the years about music, producing and deejaying; they all have their own genres as well. They also require some different skills. To be a producer you would need to be able to create beats or remix songs using softwares like FL Studio or Reason. The DJ needs to know how to mix songs together using turntables or CDJ’s and use effects like reverb and echo in the mix. An MC has to know how to rap and has the ability to freestyle on the go.

My first experience with music was playing drums at my church for about two years then I moved onto playing guitar for myself for about five years. After that I started to play bass guitar for a few bands around my town as well as deejayed at parties and clubs on weekends when I was free. A year later I got into producing my own songs on FL Studio and Reason on my laptop. In December 2012 I moved out of

(An “MC” is a “Master of Ceremonies”. From what I’ve learned over the years about music, producing and dj’ing, here’s my take on them:

DJ’s use turntables to play other people’s recorded music for people to dance or listen to. They may take two or more records and mix them together by scratching and blending so that the tempo (speed) matches. For example: from a song at 120 bpm (beats per minute) to another song at 125 bpm. To do this smoothly so that there aren’t any abrupt pauses in between songs or tempo changes is called beat matching. In other words it sounds like one continuous song instead of two or more songs mixed together. Some DJ’s will even throw in some of their own beats and effects using drum machines, samplers and other instruments alongside the turntable(s).

MCs are usually known as rappers. They either write their own lyrics (words) to someone else’s music or take someone else’s lyrics and

(An “MC” is a “Master of Ceremonies”. From what I’ve learned over the years about music, producing and djing, I think an MC is more of a host for whatever event he/she is at.)

DJs play records or cds for people. They probably also use samplers and/or sequencers to create their own sound. DJs can also be referred to as Disc Jockeys.

I’m not sure if all DJs make their own beats or not. Some DJs are really into the ‘scratching’ technique(which came from hip hop). Scratching is just cutting or chopping up small parts of a song or voice sample then playing them back repeatedly to give it that cool effect you hear in some songs.

What is a producer? I think producers are really into making beats/making music. They’re also known as beat makers too. A producer can have 2 meanings: someone who creates new tracks OR someone who owns the rights to a track by an artist(sometimes producers

(An “MC” is a “Master of Ceremonies”. From what I’ve learned over the years about music, producing and deejaying is way more than just playing music for people to listen to. It’s a form of art. And just like any other art form it takes time to master.

You can’t just wake up one day and say you’re going to be a DJ or Producer; it takes practice. You have to spend hours upon hours practicing your craft before you can become good enough to actually start getting paid for your work. I think this is something that separates Real DJs from Fake DJs. For example, I know many DJs that will go out and buy turntables and try to learn how to scratch and do all these cool tricks with their hands so they can make themselves look better on stage but they don’t know anything about DJing or how to actually mix songs together. I mean seriously, if you don’t even know how to properly mix two songs together what makes you think people will want to pay

(An “MC” is a “Master of Ceremonies”. From what I’ve learned over the years about music, producing and djing, I’m assuming that you’re talking about hip-hop/rap music.)

A DJ (disc jockey) is someone who plays other peoples’ songs for an audience. It can be at a club or even on the radio. A DJ may also mix two or more songs together live using turntables or cd players and sometimes certain effects/equipment. A person known as “DJ Premier” is one of the best examples of a DJ; he is famous for his scratching (playing around with records on turntables).

An MC is someone who raps over instrumentals (beats) that were produced by someone else. Sometimes they go by “rapper”, but I guess it doesn’t really matter what they’re called…the point is that they do their thing (rap) over someone else’s beats. An example of an MC would be “Jay-Z”. He r

What’s the difference between a DJ, an MC, and a Producer? All three are similar in the fact that they all entertain an audience, one just does it with music, one with words, and one with both. (An “MC” is a “Master of Ceremonies”. From what I’ve learned over the years about music, producing and dj’ing, I’ve learned that it’s not where you’re from or how much money you have to get the job done. It’s who you know and how far you want it.

A producer is basically someone who makes beats and puts together complete songs. A producer can sometimes be a musician who plays instruments as well as programs drum machines and synths. A producer can also be just a beat-maker who doesn’t play any instruments at all. The producer will then hire session musicians to record live guitar / bass / keyboards / horns in the studio for their songs. A lot of times now you’ll see producers who don’t play any instruments but program beats on their computer using software like Reason or Fruity Loops.

An MC is an emcee or rapper who rhymes on top of the beat or instrumentals provided by the producer or by himself if he produces his own tracks.

1. DJ’ing is the art of mixing and playing music with a set of turntables and/or CD decks. There are different types of DJs ranging from club DJs, bedroom DJs, mobile DJs, radio DJs, and so on. The main idea behind DJ’s is to entertain an audience through music by either mixing songs together or “scratching” records.

2. MC’ing is the art of entertaining an audience through speech or words. An MC will perform at different events like club parties, birthday parties, weddings, etc. The goal of the MC is to get people to dance or have a good time by hyping up the crowd and getting them excited for what’s about to come next in the party.

3. Producing is creating your own music using a computer and different software like ProTools, Reason, Fruity Loops (now called FL Studio), etc. A producer can create beats (instrumentals) and write lyrics that they can possibly use themselves or sell to other artists that they know or don’t know personally.

The three ideas mentioned above are very similar in some ways but also very different in others. They all relate to each other because essentially they are all trying to entertain an audience in some
