    Why do peeps look down on dj's when they use digital formats?
    ie: USB controller/stick. Or cdj's, tracktor, serato etc...... Times are changing and it shouldn't be something we should be caring about????

    This will be an argument until the end of time my friend...

    I'm a vinyl DJ and I don't look down on digital DJ's at all... I get pissed off with DJ's that can't mix without using the sync button and that have no knowledge of tunes :)

    you say that like we're in a year 2008 or something. afaik most djs here in 2013 use digital and only very few prefer vinyl. so mate...times have changed a long time ago already. ;)

    When I go to a dance I am there for the tunes, not to watch the DJ whilst in deep thought about his mixing technique. If the sounds comings out the speakers sound good, then I'm not gonna complain.

    But if a DJ cannot beatmatch using their ears and they get asked to play at a venue that has some wicked CDJs, they are gonna look like a fucking idiot when they bring their shitty numark controller.

    Personally I'm not bothered if they can beat match or not. It isn't for me to judge. At the end of the day, as long as they know how to select then i'm happy.

    They got there some way some how so who gives a fook???????!!!!!

    tbh I much prefer drag and dropping tunes onto my usb stick than burning loads of CDs! USBs are much better.

    I use a mixture of vinyl and serato and the reason i hate controller dj's is because the vast majority of them cant mix themselves. Simple as that.

    If i walked into a rave and they were using controllers, mashing sync etc, fuck that... im out of there. Not paying money to go see someone who cant even mix.
