    Default I've Rediscovered Why I Love Dj'ing

    Hi all, i've had a bit of an epiphany here.

    I took Traktor pro 2 down to essential mode, made gridding invisible, still left bpm on along with the phase meter, I then set waveforms to the ultraviolet.

    Threw on my favorite house tracks, and started mixing, manual beatmatching, complex transitions and looping. Dear god, it was phenomenal..... I was having the time of my life.

    I think i'm done with midi once and for all.

    How are you using SSL without a laptop?

    I'm happy for you both but you are still using midi even if you make the beat grids invisible! Ssl is probably a bit closer to the real thing so I'll give you that.

    I know. i was referencing i'm done with midi as to saying that i no longer plan on acquiring any midi dj hardware.

    You not fancy going the turntable route? There seems to be an obsession with this at the minute.

    I'll offer a contrarian view here. I've started using sample decks, cue point juggling (well not really juggling, more like cue point live edits) and pre-planned custom edits, and wondering why i didn't do so much much earlier.
