    So yeah, basically, I'm into mixing since 2 years now, mainly for fun, and there is one thing that always has really grinded my gears:
    Why so people are so much tending to reject DJs that use controller instead of CDJs or vinyles?

    My point is, we are constantly evolving in terms of hardware / technology. And the same way as CDs increased drastically the possibilities that the DJs had (comparing to vinyle), I feel like controller allows the DJ to have a better control and hand on the result the DJ really wants to provide to its crowd / listeners.
    I understand how frustrating it must be for old school DJs to see a huge amount of wannabe-djs that did not really have to go through the complex learning of having to set your tunes on the same pitch, and async them only using your fingers & hears.
    But what really matters in the end is to provide to the people the best experience that can be, regardless the way you do it, don't you think?

    So why is it so controverted in the DNB scene to be using what appears to be the latest piece of technology, that (IMO) is only a way to gain time and efficiency? Is it about the quality of the result output?

    Anyway, I'd be glad to hear out your opinions about this, not hear to start a fire or riot :) Feel free to connect with me on soundcloud as well, I'd be glad to hear from you, and your production / mixes as well !
