    just wondering how many of you use proper vinyl or mp3?i think mp3 mixing is wank to be honest,seems anyone can become a dj nowadays and download tunes.ive been djing since 92 oldskool hardcore then went for the jungle and on.i cant see turning up to a gig with a laptop can be much of a gig to be honest either!but thats my view each to there own.:slick:

    I personally think this is untrue because at the moment I can't afford vinyl because i'm saving up for techs. I mean I use a program called DJDecks (a cheap serato) and also use real vinyl. Come on, not every 13 year old can afford a million vinyl. I still buy real vinyl, but just not for things you can get on Mp3 like I recently bought Manix - Try To Love Me, Dillinja - Diggin in ya Crates and Disco Dodo on vinyl but I also buy 320kbs Mp3s off DOA and other places. Thats my view.

    Im vinyl til I die, unless it dies before me... CDJ's just never had the same feel as Turntables, I like to have full control of what im playing. Plus it looks a lot cooler when you pick a vinyl, spin it in ure fingers and place it on the platter...

    you all seem too stuck in your ways.
    why not just embrace the future, rather than trying to repell it.
    progress is progress, and i for one am thankful for that.

    can see what u sayin mate but all the rudeboy DJ's of today not just drum nbass all music started off on belt driven vinyl decks so, CDJ'S might well be easier to mix and to get tunes for but this digital age of mixin hasnt really got the minerals to touch the oldskool stylee but each to their own n all dat

    i agree. it's important to know where you've come from, but you gotta know where you're heading.

    Boring boring boring post...

    Sorry to use a cliche, but opinions are like assholes... and by the looks of this there's plenty of those around here...

    Opinions that is!

    Some people like Mp3, some people like CD's, some like vinyl, all for their own very good and equally valid reasons. Get over it.

    Capish?

    i hope not to an extent.
    they've outlasted every other format, but natural resources are running out which means a physical format may become obsolete in years to come, as everything will become digital.
