    Default Controller Discrimnation?

    Let me start by saying that I learned on vinyl and played out ALOT all over the midwest during the 90's and late 2000's using vinyl and good old technics......now I have switched to the DJTT VCI and am loving the doors for creativity it has opened.

    I have found though that there are ALOT of people especially now that NI has launched their controller who are doing the usual " sync means you arent a REAL dj". Im finding this very disheartning because these same people know I can play on control vinyl too.....but I prefer the controller for setup ease and now I can focus on using effects and loops to break tracks down...just wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation?

    Technically, you are not a DJ. Don't dispute it embrace a new term...what about HDJ?

    It is just getting really frustrating to hear this whole "sync" vs vinyl/cdj debate.....ALOT of the TOP djs in the world are now on controllers so why are people so hostile towards it STILL

    What if you've only played using controllers and Traktor pro? Does that justify their insults?

    who cares...just because they have a proclivity for matching beats with vinyl doesn't make them special....they still aren't playing "live" music, and neither are you... dj, controllerist, whatever... let folks have their fetishes... Do you. Wheel it selector!!
