Cutting loops, playing a million sound effects and layers over tunes while turning FX knobs robs the listening experience of originality from the intended delivery of the tracks/mix. Besides, I only see it as a form of wankery, nothing more.

Standing behind an Ipad with a pre loaded playlist is wankery?

Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don't want

ok so from the opinion of a beginner, lets just say i walked into jb hifi asked the guy where id start and he led me to your obvious, i asked him about vinyl and he pretty much said "nah noone does that anymore, waste of needles and stuff, this is the go *points to cdjs and controllers* "

so yeh sadly most of this stuff is the future, because newbies and beginners dont have all the vinyl and original stuff like, there to buy, and people in stores know nothing about them so they dont bother tryng to sell them.

i do have a s4, and i wont lie it is pretty awesome. but im going to do things right, plan on getting a cdj setup soon and a vinyl one over the next couple of years....


so yeh its the future cuz vinyl and now cdjs a little bit are getting kinda phased out...

Yeah, but thats going into JB Hi Fi for DJ equipment. That's like trying to cook a really fancy Japanese meal but only getting the ingredients from a local tiny IGA. They'll have the basics, but that's all....
