What DAW Does Zedd Use?

The equipment the artists use to perform does not have any magical effect on the crowd, far from the technical knowledge of such equipment. People who come to the performance are interested in the show and they never think about what exactly the DJ does it on, and this is normal.

Meanwhile, for the DJ and producer himself, the equipment used is very important. It is on him that the success of the performance, the performance, the absence of the threat of breakage and the ability to realize all your creative ideas depend. We will try to list the sets of equipment used by various world-class DJs and producers.

For this, it was necessary to rummage through various photographs, YouТube and interviews in order to understand very precisely what the listed DJs are currently using.

Note that many artists are constantly trying out new items (sponsored in some cases by manufacturers to try out new stuff), so the equipment listed in this article cannot be taken as a permanent fact.

Most of the Top 100 DJs use identical sets, with the only difference being the headphones.

Here is the “standard” set of equipment used by the world’s most popular DJs and artists:

  1. Mixer: Pioneer DJM-900 Nexus
  2. Decks: Pioneer CDJ-2000 Nexus
  3. Source: USB flash drive (Rekordbox)

Nearly 70% of the “TOP 100 Djs” use the exact set of equipment without modification. The reason is clear – it’s a standardization that makes it easier to access the gear they’re used to at festivals, and almost any “DJ” is up to this club standard. This greatly simplifies the connection of any equipment in the DJ booth. An interesting story in the world of headphones – where individual preference is given.

Besides the so-called CDJ Mafia, who among the most popular and influential DJs in the world use unique equipment setups that are unlike any other? A lot of top DJs, especially those who use custom equipment and controllers, prefer the Allen & Heath Xone:92 mixer for its great sound.

Zedd is one of the many touring DJs who uses a DJ controller as his main setup. He changed S4 to MK2 this year. Perhaps very soon, we will see it already with the Traktor Kontrol S8?

  • Headphones: Beats By Dre Mixr
  • Mixer: N/A – connects to any mixer installed on site.
  • Controllers: Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2

Other: I wonder if Zedd will change his headphones after he recently reported hearing loss in one ear? Perhaps in-ear monitor headphones would suit him.

Basically, Zedd belongs to the category of the most popular DJs in the world. He is popular and in demand, his performances cost fabulous money, they attract thousands and thousands of fans of this unique guy.

This DJ has created a very good sound, including mixing fantastic dark techno landscapes. He takes a more hybrid approach to DJing, including timecoded vinyl. Zedd’s work is characterized by constant dynamics and changes not only in equipment and software, but also in the DJ’s repertoire itself.
