    Default DJ MAG Tech Awards

    http://www.djmag.com/techawards/?a=15

    Who has seen the results? Those asides I have to question their "Gripes", they seem to be rather poorly thought out.

    ie

    "Beat juggling cannot be Midi triggered, can be taxing on the CPU, and dull and indistinctive colour scheme."

    Sure judgement of the color scheme is purely subjective - but the comments about beat juggling and CPU = WTF?

    TBH did not expect much more from DJMAG given their top 100 DJ list...

    These *are* user voted awards. People are retarded. Just look at the top 40.

    Well, the 'beat juggling cannot be MIDI triggered' is just factually incorrect isn't it?

    The CPU gripe might be more true compared to some of the competitors, although any laptop made within the last 3 years should be fine. And the colour scheme is quite subjective (although not the first time I've heard it).

    What... I'd be very surprised if they're unaware of this site, which is mainly based around midi triggered beat juggling...

    Last year, this year, saying Traktor Pro has no loop control is a glaring mistake. Traktor had always had loop control.
