    +DOZE That's good on you. I remember when purists were hating on beat keepers for mixers. It is what it is. I was just clarifying for the dude asking. It's also harder to crank start your car, but I still use a key. I just hope that laptop Djs match two (maybe 3) records together for a significant amount of time in their travels. For me, there's almost no greater feeling. I'm not putting down mp3 djs. Vinyl just takes more skill. Although, *some* cats push whatever they're working on to the limits.

    +Casey Kirk Ok so, it's true that playing on vinyl is harder than digital in general because with vinyl you will have to beatmatch. But it really doesn't matter wether you use a DJ Software on your laptop witg a controller/CDJs or CDJs with a USB stick. You do have sync on both (which takes the fun out of DJing imo). Thats why I always beatmatch by ear, no matter what hardware I use. It's just more fun!

    So... he wants a bad back?

    Mewzyc I knew right away he was gunna say his lower back, my back kills after long sets. Only way is to raise the gear on stands and even then it kinda doesn’t help

    *"No one uses turntables anymore but Dj Snake"* Dumbest quote ever....

  • DOZE

     (Mar 10, 2019)

    Well, I like Dillon Francis but this quote was ignorant af! The feeling of vinyl is unbeatable and there are a lot of DJs who still use turntables. Nobody should ever complain about what hardware someone uses!

    I know right was laughing when he said that xD Im like hmmm the list is long.. Basically almost everybody that comeptes in the redbull 3style uses turntables, DMC comeptitions, Goldie awards etc etc... This is the reason i hate on house DJ's
