    Heard "Menace".

    Brain exploded.

    That song never gets old

    Its not the "cleanest" in places I have to agree.

    When that first Misanthrop dub comes in his beatmatching is a wee bit off.

    Not so much that but just he presses play and spins the jogwheel and weeee it's locked and headphones are off. Just annoys me watching people on cdjs that mix like that I find it very boring and kind of insulting for all the really talented Dj's out there who do it properly

    What are people's views on pre-pitching? I can see why it could be looked down on as it takes a lot of the skill out of beat matching but at the same time it gives you the freedom to go crazy in other areas.. EQ'ing, song selection, etc.

    Is it a common practice among bigger named DJ's? I've knew Mefjus has done it for a while.. don't know of anyone else.

    Well I mix on vinyl and I still feel I can go crazy and have freedom with Eqing and song selection. Beat matching doesn't stop me from doing those things so why would it anyone else?

    I personally think pre-pitching is lazy.

    Summed it up perfectly. Everyone has their own views on it but it ruins a set for me, I'd rather see someone ride the pitch but clang a bit. So soul less and boring to watch just pushing buttons and everything is in time its just like a toy.

    Hijacked the thread with this a bit so apologies but just wanted to share my views!

    why on earth would you pre pitch on cdjs... they are already easy enough... i have 2 cdj850s and yeah fair enough you still have to do the odd nudge and pitch knob but it more or less locks for a minute or you really dont need to pre pitch....

    respect is lost again

    - - - Updated - - -

    how on earth did you erven pre pitch sure it would be a long winded process and some dwindle - ance in quality from time stretching

    right, so its more taking the approach of having a pitch slider set to say, 1.2% before hitting play, rather than taking the approach of speeding a 172 up to 174 before burning it off?

    well it's pretty much his tunes and tunes from his friends and I bet they mostly produce in the same BPM which is 174. No wonder he hasn't got to touch the wheel much as with CDJ's it's so precise, compared to vinyl.
    And iamjoey, yes everybody does that. 0.60% is pretty much a bpm.
