Questions about MiniDJ

If you have questions about MiniDJ, we're here to help! Here are just a few common questions we hear from customers. Of course, if you have any specific questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly by phone at (515) 666-4444, chat, or via email.

Does MiniDJ include a DJ?

No. However, we've designed MiniDJ so you don't need a traditional DJ for many events. MiniDJ is a service designed to offer a high-quality, low cost D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) DJ rental equipment packaged in a custom-designed, super easy to use system. Although our name is MiniDJ, we do NOT provide a live person at your event, we only provide our MiniDJ system which includes equipment and music on a rental basis.

I need a DJ at my event, right?

We’ve designed MiniDJ to replace the traditional DJ for many typical events (e.g. weddings, parties, dances, etc.) saving you hundreds while making your event even more fun! Read more about how MiniDJ compares to a traditional DJ.

Will someone need to run MiniDJ during my event?

We find many people simply pick a couple of pre-made playlists, add a few extra songs from the massive built in library, reorganize or remove a few songs, and press play. You can set up a night’s worth of music in only a few minutes. Karaoke lyrics appear automatically when available, so guests can just grab a mic and sign when they’re good and ready! Need to adjust the volume or skip to the next song, no problem, it’s just the press of a button.

Of course, there are a few exceptions. For example, if you're having a wedding and would like to have music at a specific time (e.g. at the ceremony), you'll probably want a friend or relative available to take care of that for you. However, that usually just requires pressing a few buttons on the MiniDJ system at the appropriate time.

Can I make my own playlist?

Yes! MiniDJ has a massive built-in music library. You can search for songs or artists, pick your favorites, and add them to the upcoming playlist right on the MiniDJ system. While the MiniDJ system comes pre-loaded with over 40 great DJ created playlists, you’re not locked into the songs in the playlist or the order. You can add additional songs, remove songs, reorganize the playlist, and even add multiple playlists.

How long can I use MiniDJ at my event?

If the party is going great, we don’t think you should have to shell out extra money to keep it going. That’s why every MiniDJ system includes a full day’s rental whether we’re delivering it or you’re picking it up. That means you can have MiniDJ delivered in the morning, use it all day long, and have it picked up the following day (within 24 hours) for one low cost!

Is MiniDJ just equipment?

No, far from it. Sure, MiniDJ does include professional audio equipment, but it’s so much more. MiniDJ includes both professional audio hardware fully integrated into a custom machined enclosure coupled with software that’s custom designed to be incredibly simple to use. Plus, MiniDJ includes all of the music, karaoke, and playlists you need for a great event! Read more about what MiniDJ has to offer.

Will someone show me how to use MiniDJ?

Not typically, because nobody will need to, it’s really that easy! MiniDJ has been designed to be incredibly simple to use and no training is required. MiniDJ is controlled exclusively by a giant touchscreen with no confusing knobs, buttons, or faders to use. If you need a little extra help, we have short and simple tutorial videos which explain the entire process! Of course, we’re also here to help by phone, chat, or email if you run in to any difficulties!

Is there any way I can see MiniDJ before I reserve it?

MiniDJ is available at various pickup locations around the midwest where you may be able to demo MiniDJ. However, pleaes keep in mind that the MiniDJ systems may be out with other customers or prepared for pickup/delivery. Additionally, we’ve done our best to provide video, photos and tons of information here on our website so you know exactly what you’re getting! If you have any additional questions, we’re more than happy to speak with you and answer any questions. Also, there are occasions where we may have a MiniDJ system at a public event or trade show (e.g. bridal show), so just ask us and we’d be happy to check for you!

Can I make payments?

Due to the low cost of MiniDJ, with our typical reservation we require payment in full at the time of booking (since the entire cost of MiniDJ is typically less than the deposit for many other vendors for your event). This option includes our no-risk cancellation policy. However, if you’d prefer to reserve a MiniDJ system but can’t afford the full price today, we have another option—a $99 non-refundable deposit with the remaining balance due one week prior to your reservation date. This gives you the flexibility to reserve a system today for only $99 and pay later.

Can I play my own music?

Yes. MiniDJ features simple to use universal inputs so you can connect your own phone, computer, or other device! Playing off of your own device is a simple as connecting it and pressing play!

Is MiniDJ good for large events or venues?

MiniDJ consists of high-power professional sound equipment and it’s been used at various event types of various sizes. However, if you’re having a 300+ person wedding in the grand ballroom, MiniDJ may not be the right fit for your event as it has been designed for typical sized events. If you have questions about your specific venue or event, please contact us and we’ll be happy to provide more specific guidance.

Who will do announcements?

If you need announcements, we find that at most events there are plenty of willing friends or relatives that are more than happy to handle your announcements, and they’ll probably do a better job than many DJs. If you have a lot of announcements, hire an actual MC and you’ll still save over a traditional DJ. The MiniDJ system includes two wireless mics, so we've already included everything you need!

Do you offer lighting?

Yes! We have computer controlled intelligent lighting available as an available option. While not every event may need lighting, it’s a great option to add that extra level of excitement. Also, we’ve made it available at a very reasonable cost.

How does the karaoke work?

Simple. We include on-screen lyrics which automatically scroll to thousands of songs in our library. The lyrics play automatically on our giant built-in display, so you can just grab a mic and sing when you're feeling it! Keep in mind that we do not include the traditional instrument-only karaoke remakes you may find in your local karaoke joint as we find that most customers prefer the original artist version with lyrics to sing along to. You know, what you're used to singing in your car!
