    Mixing with a CD deck is like driving a car on the xbox blind, Mixing vinyl is like driving a car.

    Bollocks. If you get used to cds then you'll know what is happening at what moment depending on the time signature or simply because you can hear the tune playing in your mics while you forward or reverse it.

    And modern highend cd decks (platter/mp3) make Technics turntables look like a Jaguar Type E against a Mercedes Bezn SLR. One looks classic and is full of nostalgia, the other is cutting edge development. There may a ton of electronics between you and the engine but it just means you have to get used to driving a car with that much power and potential.

    The cd vs vinyl discussion is a load of bollocks for bedroom trainspotters on DOA anyway. The big boys play play cds and vinyl alternately, depending on their needs (dubplates, scratching, weight - sound quality is exactly the same or better on properly mastered cd). If the main thing you can cling to as a dj is your vinyl purity then that's the only thing you can cling to.

    The only thing sadder to discuss is Technics vs Vestax.

    Dustek- WOAH!!!
    Ez there tiger, i use a cd deck as well for dubs as i can't cut my own tunes to dub plate and want to play em out etc.
    It was merely a comment on the mechanism of the two formats.
    I will go and spot some trains in my bedroom now

    I guess its just a big pop on the wallet to get em cut for most people. i reckon a lot of people would love teh dubplate if they could afford it

    Yeh i'm still owed a dubplate (looks angrily at $phinx_187) :teeth:
    I do agree with you foz. Its tough to fork out £40 to get your tune cut to dub, especially if you want to play out a tune you made that day but it's not quite finished. The good thing about CDs is there cheap and easy.
    However VINYL & DUBS FOREVER MAN!
    Real DJ's please the ladies with 12"s, Not 6"s :teeth:. BTW that last statement is a joke before anyone goes on a mad flex. CDJ's are cool people too

    As for vinyl vs cd, there is no real debate. Andy C might drop a dubplate OR he might drop a cd with the tune that Dillinja AIMed to him. There are individual preferences but there is no point to this discussion. They are just as easy to play with, just gets taking used to.

    Fozzybear - I'll probably cut some tunes on dubplate when I've finished (never) just to have the pleasure of dropping my own vinyl. Purely for aesthetic purposes though, I'm not going to send out 40 demos at at least 20 quid each... Peace.

    PS Grinch - go and cry over Rooney.

    Allez les blues!

    It's a good time to mention that Music House are doing a 10 inch 2 sided dub for 20 quid.

    Haven't gotten down there yet but Bladerunner always cuts there and his come out good.

    I don't like using CDs. Maybe that'll change if I get more practice in but I'd have to work hard to get as quick and accurate on those as I am on vinyl.
