I currently purchased a new MacBook Pro (Early 2015, 13in Retina) that came with El Capitan OS X. I NEED to downgrade to Yosemite because I have some devices that arent currently supported on El Capitan. How can I get Yosemite on my MacBook? Need help ASAP! Thanks!!!

First, breathe...back away from the CAPS. Think Puppy, Baby, Monkey...

All right, for you not having Yosemite before, I think you need to find the Yosemite installer and create a bootable USB drive. Can you find the Yosemite installer? Is it available on the App store?

Either an istaller, or take it to an apple store and have them do it. In store it'll take under ten minutes.

If you are okay with wiping the computer, reboot and during boot up hold down Command+Shift+R. You should get a screen that says starting internet recovery. Connect it to your wifi when prompted (Or use ethernet of possible; you will need an adapter for retina macbook pro) and use disk utility from there to wipe the hard drive. Then choose to install osx and follow the steps and it will install Yosemite (if you have an earlier version, it will install the earliest supported version of osx, so if you have a 2014 mac, it will install mavericks). Once setup is complete then you can use your computer again and it will be running osx Yosemite.

Or he could use a digital vinyl system on real turntables paired with Serato Scratch Live (which is compatible with El Capitan), and not some cheezy dj controller with serato DJ which is junk anyways.
