Records...

So I got bored with just dj'ing and decided I'm going to learn how to scratch and all that jazz. I bought a Rane ttm-56 and got together some old hip hop records that I have. RECORDS ARE SO MUCH MORE FUN.

I'm switching back to records.

I like using Serato with records.

As I was playing my old hip hop records, it was the inside cuts and b-sides that were the fire. It was the familiar song that we all know, but done in an unfamiliar way. I miss that about records.

Me too. I bitched and moaned and complained about digital and the loss of analog and records to newer technology. Then a good friend said stop crying and try it. Well I instantly fell in love with it. Imagine and old timer like me able to still feel the record. It was a real amazing idea. I look forward to hearing it however in a huge venue to see if it holds up sound quality wise. But fun and innovative it wins hands down. (Thanks Dino for tuning me on to it)

With all this talk of DVS systems and such, let me add this. I use final scratch 2 and it is another tool to use. It's a good piece of gear and does what it does well.

It gives me the capability to play music that I would not be able to acquire otherwise. THERE IS NO MEANS TO ACQUIRE VINYL IN UPSTATE NEW YORK PERIOD.

Two 1/2 years with this setup and I wouldn't give it up. Records; I play along side of the digital. Versatility is paramount. The only drawback if you consider this one is file size of the WAV and other compatible modes. For me the cost of a few terabytes of hard drives at todays prices make this option very acceptable.


Just my two cents.

Damn, that truly sucks
If I was in your situation though I would go the same way with a DVS system but where I am I can freely get all the vinyl I want.

As to going back to vinyl I know what you mean John, I got CDJ's few years ago to see what the fuss is all about only to a year later sell them and go back to 100% vinyl and I'm still loving it
It does have it's down points though as now I dont have a single CD player in the house except the PC...so I will get a cheap dual CD deck so I could still spinn some silver disks

I would think about getting Serato over a stand alone CD player. You can hook it up to the PC for home use. And for the gigs away I'm pretty sure now days there's a CDJ in mostly all setups.

Plus, you know you want a reason to buy a laptop .

This link is GOLD to me now. I usually travel to NYC, some 7 hour trip south from upstate New York to buy vinyl. Rekerds are my first love. Will always be. I will be using the link, and spending considerable money.

Thanks. I love you guys.....

I still buy lot's of vinyl, everywhere...
NY , Online, UK Juno, etc

The main hobby here is listening on My Setup while im transfering them to .WAV for TRAKTOR SERATO use ,

yesterday i was transfering some 80's stuff, Elton John, and Petshop boys UK remixes, The sound on vinyl is so warm, and it feels good on Serato too, if its properly recorded, keeping dynamics, and noises,
I use a Thorens/ Audiotecnica / Mcintosh preamp/ Focusrite interfase./ Laptop.PC thats it,
ITS COOl,!!! and clean

I love gemm, and while I've never used discog's marketplace, I use it to crosscheck information. Once upon a time we had CDNow, which had the best online music database ever...right down to the mastering engineers and the session musician that played for 5 minutes on some b-side. Then amazon bought 'em out and the info vanished.
