II — Milonga DJ sound technique

When DJing a successful milonga, there are a number of technical issues that are important to take into account. The main of these are: (1) media quality, (2) equalisation, (3) digital-analogue conversion, and (4) speaker output.

I.a – Pre-tango: before 1895

Tango traces its origins to the popular culture of South America, to the area around the Rio del plata, River Plate, the bay that lies between Argentine and Uruguay, in the merchant cities Buenos Aires in Argentine and Montevideo in Uruguay.

II.a – Media quality

The media we have available, the digital files with tango music, form the basis for a quality DJ performance. There are things you can do later on, in equalisation, to improve a bad file, but that can only tackle smaller problems.
