    Default How can guys with serato criticize traktor users?

    Isn't it a bit hypocritical for guys using serato to criticize traktor users for not beatmatching when all they have to do is line up the visual markers? Is there something magical about lining up two waveforms visually that I am misunderstanding?

    Lol I was given the same treatment by the resident dj at my last gig. He chuckled and mumbled something about "sync". I Just laughed it off. when they fall of the high horse they will fall hard

    hah yeah, I all ways wondered about that, then I learned to use Serato, and the answer is - no skill, just a bit more time.

    The only skill is knowing where to put the pitch fader based on the the tempo of the two tracks and that is just basic math at the end of the day...

    In all honesty, unless you're using the technology to it's full potential, doing traditional DJ'ing on ANY digital system - regardless of brand - is a brain dead effort. Even on turntables or CDJ's, it was still a minimal effort task, most people only thought it was hard because they didn't practice hard enough.
