^some friends of mine finished their sets whith pain on their back last month ...(also humidity helped)
but yes track selection is a + of laptop
and no most contollers jogs are really crappy and simply sync mix happens...
also there is a phenomeno happening here cause of the sync button.djs who start from laptop maybe wont learn to mix(except if they really want it).

+touch screen would be nice!

well that's the whole point of having "half-decent" midi controller. the one that's got stable driver support and made from sturdy components. in any case every digital DJ should invest into pro grade equipment, especially if he or she considers performing gigs on a regular basis.

and even if jogs are crappy, i doubt staring at the screen can help much - simply cuz beatmatching and mixing should be done by ears, not with the synch button and especially not with screen-staring. there could be much more interesting stuff happening on the dancefloor then on the screen.           www.venomous2.com

Its good to know various opinion from u guys. Yeah, in the end for a dj all that matters is whether he sent the crowd up in a roller coaster during their set or not.

^ yup, for the price of a battle-sturdy midi controller (like akai mpd24) you cant even get a single cdj100.           www.venomous2.com

when people use quasi-esoteric words to support the properties of outdated tehnologies is a sign for me that stands for BS.           www.soundcloud.com/elektroakustica/sets/downtempo/

I think its funny, DJs seem to be so hesitant to try new things. When CDs first started being used to DJ all the vinyl people refused to use em, and its funny to see the same thing happen with digital mixing.

I dont necessarily prefer one over the other, I learned on CDJs and beatmatch just fine. My bottom line is that digital mixing is more fun, less like work, and allows me to enjoy the music more than if i have to beatmatch by hand. I can set any number of effects to my midi controller (I use Live to mix), and I can set kill switches which really helps streamline things. To me beatmatching CDs is like 50% technical, 50% artistic, while with digital its more like 80% artistic since the program does most of the work so I can pretty much have fun with the rest of the dancefloor rather than be alone in my head concentrating on the sync.

And also, with Live I can play WAV/FLAC in 24bit 96kbps if I want (tho i usually just do 24bit 44.1). CDs can't do anything above 16b/44.1k.           .

heh, I make my own 24bit tracks And when I can find them, net releases like willsanquil said. Ektoplazm is great for that.

(Shameless self promo; a lot of my soundcloud WAVs are 24 bit http://soundcloud.com/mudpeople)           .

Well, no. I tried offering 24-bit WAVs a little while ago but no one seemed interested and it was a lot of extra work so I canned the initiative.

Probably understandable, one 24 bit track is around 100-130 megs I get a download here and htere on my Soundcloud but overall it seems people would rather not spend all that time downloading one track.           .

if you dont have an state of the art soundsystem witnout weak points, its really worthless to play anything above 16 bit wav.           "The dedication to repetition the search for nirvana in a single held tone or an endlessly cycling rhythm is one of electronic music's noblest gestures."
