1. There are so many factors affecting sound quality other than 16/24, so having the music as 24 bit is hardly an advantage.

2. I think that the sync button is a blessing. Yes, I know how to beatmatch, yes I can do it in about 20 seconds on the primitive CDJ-100s. Does it make me a better DJ? DJing isn't about beatmatch (or maybe it was 10 years ago). There is so much more to it.

3. Laptop mixing (or USB drive mixing on those new CDJs with USB) is so much more convenient than carrying loads of cds, and trying to find the one you want in the dark. Instead of spending half of the time looking for the record I want and then beatmatching it, then immediately going to the next one since I ran out of time, I can concentrate on the mix itself, add fx, or be creative.

Point!! But CDjs are the best.           Wise decision to consider music a religion, one thing certain is that the existence of such maintains balance and harmony within this world. Attributes such as stimulation of intelligence and relativity to the perfection of mathematical equations make it

I set my bounced tracks in Ableton to pretty colors so I get to look at those instead. That and all the pretty greens and reds on the midi controller. Heehee it turns green when i use a fader, red when i use a pot!

But I learned to mix using CDJ 100s and a DJM300, about as basic-model as you can get and remain Pioneer. It was 450 bucks for everything and a coffin, and those things lasted me at least 4 yrs til I had to sell em... I miss those trusty steeds... Ive used a few other models of Pioneer, and a few other brands, and for some reason the 100s feel more... Idk... I guess cuz I played with em so much I got used to their jog wheel and whatnot. Also, after playing a pair of giant ancient Geminis with like 100 buttons, unlit, tiny lettering, dark party, janky cue, the minimal interface on the 100s have much less chance of hitting something bad. Which I've done. Bumping CUE in the middle of a track, recording of course, halfway through of course, and STU STU STU STU tter.

theren't one better than another, each with their own style of mixing. if the process and the final product are good. there is no reason to say which is better.

just my opinion ... But I love the CDJs 100 and DJM 400 for me are the best ... i think this ones are strangely vibed

could the Goa Gil's decks be better than vinyl, cdjs or digital mix software??           PsySonora

To me it's just the difference of bringing a laptop (expensive/more setup time/possibility of crashing) or cds to a party (cheap/quick). I've done both and really prefer cds if I'm djing.  - Midwest based psytrance group

I like CDJs as long as they are CDJs with the features I like to use (loop, master tempo, vinyl jogwheel).

spinning on CDJ-100s I can do but it is just boring and it doesn't allow me to mix as creatively as I like.

ok so i thought of a great analogy (pun intended?) for this debate.

Before I relate it I want to say that I prefer mixing digitally with Live, but have no trouble mixing with hardware. Im not trying to argue the merits of either.


The argument of hardware vs software mixing is no different than an argument of toilets vs holes in the ground.

Sure, holes serve the purpose of disposing of wastes just fine. And there are people who love to dig holes, some are even good at it, and some can do it in their sleep with finesse. Holes serve all essential waste disposal purposes.

A toilet however is a predug hole, minus the dirt, minus the potential poo on shoes, minus the digging, with more efficient effluvium removal with considerably less effort involved. And the added bonus of no TP roll rolling into dook piles.

Some like to dig holes, some would rather have their holes predug and made from glistening porcelain.

Both methods attain identical results; waste is disposed of in such a way that possible contact with humans and their mouths is minimized if not eliminated. An argument over which method is better than the other is essentially a matter of opinion and therefore argument makes as much sense as trying to one-up a b-tard in their natural habitat.

That said, I do personally feel that its important to be able to dig holes in the ground and poo in them without getting any gross things anywhere but the hole, and be able to cover the miasma back up so that no one falls in it, a proper distance from water sources and human-trafficked areas.

i started on computers, then moved to decks cause djing on a computer is twice as boring as djin on decks.

the hell don't we all just preform our own music live? it's easy to do these days....

I love mixing drum n bass on digital as there is so much you can do with it (altho vinyl is fun as well), but trance/house/goa/psy 4 x 4 is pretty boring digital but much more on cdjs IMHO.
