I asked this question somewhere else. Now that they are officially done what tables will the DJ's use now or will they go strictly the CDJ route I have been looking at the Stantons.
You have had good luck with your numarks haven't you Ted? Would you recommend those to anyone looking for turntables for vinyl?
Read this artical..http://alldance.fm/forums/showthread.php/4-Technics-TurnTables-Done
here panasonic states they have discontinued the products for good.
And with CDJ I feel like a traditionalist, lol, as everyone is on that labtop sh*t.
Vinyl has to be over. I'm just hoping CDs stay alive. I think CDs is a good compromise and is actually the best quality digital sound out there. I like mixing wit' CDJ, it was wierd at first but got fun once I got used to it. I burn all my mp3s to CD to keep that physical feel.
I wasnt gonna say anything but right is right and wrong is wrong!!!!
THIS THREAD IS ABOUT "BYE BYE TECHNICS 1200's
NOT ABOUT DROPPING ANY NEG COMMENTS ABOUT "that labtop sh*t"
When I read your post it looks like you tossed that in there as a low blow...to float your ego!!!
I'm guessing a new thread could be started about the above!!!
It's not that serious now, LOL. Who on here was my comment intended to insult? I thought this is all old school in the house.
And what ego? I never claimed to be the best live, there's plenty of djs who are better at it live than me. I'm just one of the best "mixtape djs" (I know peeps are gonna give me a hard time for that one, lol). Mixtapes have totally more to do with multitrack editing & production engineer type work. While we're on the subject, I was one of the first ones (out here in Chicago) to use a computer to make a mixtape and some of the other djs took shots at me cuz of that at the time (nevermind that in those days, the software wasn't mixing anything, it just provided a multitrack editing venue). And now inside every club the djs are mixing with the computer screen right up there for everyone to see. HUH? There's no way that stuff would have gotten over back in the 90s (what was the peak of the dj era).
To keep it totally real, I don't exactly know how to use that Serato stuff properly. It seems too complicated or better put, I like to keep things simple. Other djs have tried to show me and everytime my reaction was the same, "it's still the same amount of work, maybe even more, the bpm display on the mixer or cdj should be making it easy enough, as long as that is there what's the point of the labtop?" Another thing I discovered inadvertantly was that it makes it far more imperative to throw the new song in exactly right as if you're even a little late or early, fixing it in real time is actually harder if you're using software live. The only advantage to stuff like Serato is that one doesn't have to carry all those records or cds around everywhere.
I would think that animosity towards modern methods of mixing would be expected in a thread titled "bye bye technic 1200s".
I own two of these babies and have not used them in about 10 years so they are in mint condition. They will be worth $$$ to someone in the future looking for a great TT but hold on to them as long as you can. As for me, they will be right where they are for a while until I place them in a studio sometime.
