View Full Version : Any DJ's out there fancy a go with this?
7th August 2003, 16:46
The success of a digital system that allows CDs to be scratched and mixed in the same way as 12-inch records could mean the death end of DJs using vinyl, a top DJ and record producer has said.
The end of an era maybe?
Be fairly sad if it is, there is just something about a good old fashioned vinyl 12", I just can't see a CD DJ being as well, err cool?
Whadya think?, anyone spin for a living in here?

I don't spin, but I can seeing records finally going away in maybe 10-15 years. I recently went to see BT (http://www.btmusic.com) and he did his whole set from his laptop where he can instantly do effects and changes and other stuff to the music, swap out beats etc..
basically creating a remix on the fly. It was very cool.

I don't think CD's could ever replace records, but electronic mixers/scratchers like my DM2 turntables will probably be the future as I see it.

I was born into the CD age (well... a few years before they where mainstream). And I have a vinyl fetish of sorts. I just like them, none of that fancy-ass "digital audio", Just good ol sounding music. I think they sound very close the same in any saine listening setup, and if they are scratched (vinyl is, not the act of mixing), it just adds a little something to the music, more life, a face, warmth, not a cold digital sound.
I could never see them dieing off, just going even more back undergound.
