    Default Club Controller "DJ"... The Disappointment of a Fellow Controller DJ

    As I attended a new bar in my town I was eager to see a live DJ. When I finally arrived to the bar I noticed a DJ booth. I was quite excited to hear a live set by a fellow DJ. Upon looking into the booth I noticed a Numark Mixtrack Pro. I have never held and will never hold animosity towards controllers (I personally use a VCI-100 1.4FW). However, I withheld judgement until he began.

    To say the least I was disappointed beyond belief. Unfortunately this DJ fit every stereotype controller DJ could ever hope to contain... Dependent on a sync button, overuse of effects, clipping beats, ect. ect. I felt sick to my stomach listening to the 2x BPM rap songs and echo effects. I looked more carefully noticing he was running a VDJ LE. Shame on him... Nothing bothers me more than to see a controller user prove peoples stereotypes correct.

    One day I hope to see a DJ with a controller in the booth kill it. Nothing would make me happier than to see a controller DJ rock the club. To be a paid DJ using VDJ LE is an embarrassment to ever controller user ever. I would like to know if anyone else has experienced the same situation as I have.

    How did the crowd react to his performance?

    It amazes me all the time how some people miss a self-consciousness or self-awareness that maybe what they are doing is actually total crap. You see it all the time in the talent shows on TV. People audition, sing or dance like crazy, but are just seriously bad. And they aren't even embarrassed about it. Some even think the jury are wrong and deny the fact they do suck.

    Actually, sometimes I wish I had some of that kind of ignorance.

    People just want money and fame. There is a serious lack of people who do things for fun, or do things because they love doing what they do.

    The sync thing I don't find a big deal, though the rest is pretty noobie mhm. If I were at a gig I'd sync no doubt in my mind though, just to make sure there are no errors. Then again I know how to beatmatch so I don't feel bad about it.

    I went to a bar by my house on a Monday to hear the DJ. He was using a Denon DNMC6000 with VDJ. I didn't look close enough to see if it was VDJ LE or not but in the US, VDJ is bundled with the DNMC6000. Needless to say all this guy did was fade in and out of songs. When I got there, he was playing rock, then moved into hip-hop. It was a Monday, the place wasn't packed but there was a good amount of people there, college crowd, so I'm assuming with the genre switch it was open format but still, at least give me an echo out, oh wait, can't do that in VDJ. This guy was playing the entire song and then just fading up the next. I wasn't impressed at all. Maybe the guy could mix and beatmatch and that night just wasn't the night for it, who knows. To his credit, he was playing hip hop and playing requests and the grou of girls sitting at the bar were enjoying it. From a DJ perspective it wasn't anything, but to the patrons in the bar he was playing what they wanted and they were having a good time.
