Me and my mate keep on having this really annoying discussions.

he recently borrowed one of my old soundcards off me and made a mix on his laptop with virtual DJ.

He started looking at midi controllers that he could get and i said that if i was to invest i would get some cdj, which i think would be way more fun.

He keeps on saying that he doesnt see how cdjs would be better and that there is no point using them when its easier on a laptop etc etc boring boring.

basically hes wrong, and it really makes me mad wink . I think that he must still be in the "honeymoon period" when djing with software that does it for you is still fun

Sorry to dig this topic up from the ground, i know its been buried long ago. I just need wanted to say my opinion and see what others have to say

peace happy

is he?

If he is so convinced laptop dj'ing does it for him, then let him do it.
If you really believed in cdj djing you would just wait until he finds out it is better, by even bringing this topic up here you don't believe 100% in cdjing puh

i got kinda confused who likes what.

i prefer regular stuff to software. but sometimes im lazy too, or there is no need to stand next to a table and you can mix up some good stuff with great skill and press play while talking to people ect...

laptop mixing also requires some skill. its a good idea to start off with a laptop, learn all the fades & brakdowns buildups and then when you have the "ear" you can spend £1000 for used cdjs happy

And vinyl DJing is a whole other category by itself.

virtual - Existing in the mind, especially as a product of the imagination.

Lets put it this way, let him pretend to be a DJ, but in the end its more than just beat matching and mixing from deck a to deck b.

Let him do whatever he wants. I don't agree with your attitude towards software djing though. Depending on what software you're using, you could be a so much more entertaining DJ than with a couple of cdjs. What's that good Richie Hawtin quote about dj software again?

Yeh sorry i think that ive been a bit harsh...

I think that its the particular software maybe that just aims to emulate a par of decks and the fact that hes trying to push his opinions onto me not the other way around

I know what with other software like ableton u can really take it to the next level with on the fly producing etc.

I saw that richie hawtin vid something like "its not cheating if u use the time it gives you to do something else" hehe

Same here, but I use Traktor Scratch. Don't have enough money for the ubercool "pro" update.

Timecode is a bit like the best of bolth worlds.

I love it when I'm in a club and the DJ still plays vinyls. Gives such a nice vibe. ow and I think playing vinyls is more difficult than CDJ.

Frankiee can't you see you single minded trance people are the apartheid of EDM?
