Even if there is 'skulldugery' afoot here, i think the whole cdj/searto thing is still whack! especially used by anyone that has had no vinyl mixin experience, like everyone jumping on the production bandwagon these days, getting a digital release, and thinking, ''oh, i need to be able to mix if i get bookings, i know, ill whack a cd in or hunch over a laptop, with no idea about tune selection, planning drop points ect, and still have my arms in the air thinkin im a bad man''.... just even more embarrasin when they cock up using that sort of equipment, or worse still, threads like this are started, to acuse such things!
I dont care what sort of amazing tricks you can do on these new toys, it'll never beat the thirll of watchin someone workin there arse off over vinyl. i even like hearing a few mistakes here an there on vinyl (if they adjust it quickly) lets you know its LIVE and hes actually doin somethin up there.
And this whole business of ''oh its so much easier not carring vinyl about'' - WHAT, shut ya noise, man up!!!. If you cant even lug a good hours worth of tunes about without gripping about it, you picked the wrong hobby!!!
