    So the attention span of the current club generation is one minute. Maybe in twenty years it is 10 seconds so all we have are build-ups and releases, over and over. I would have hoped that three minutes or so would be enough of dance music. Oh well...

    I still can't believe you got rid of the S2.....

    Anything else is going to baffle you.

    It felt like cheap plastic.

    I should aim for a solid 2 channel mixer.

    S2 was a nice controller but i felt like if I dropped it on the ground it would shatter into pieces.

    Yeah but you're learning and most stuff isn't gonna handle being dropped well..


    CDJ2000s are pretty much a plastic box, so are a lot of mixers.... I wouldn't worry too much about what it's made of yet.

    i feel like you make a lot of decisions based on half understandings, etc.

    dubfire and a few other DJs played on the S4 regularly for a while (at least while they were testing it) and it's more than solid enough for most DJs. if it can survive touring with them...

    like was said above, CDJ2000s are pretty hollow feeling plastic boxes - you're not supposed to drop DJ kit, it's not really built to survive that. if you're carrying it around a lot you put it in a flight case.

    I dropped a 1200 down a flight of stairs once, all bar the tone arm survived. But still, NI gear is used by loads of touring DJs. It can handle more then it looks. Build quality certainly shouldn't be a big factor in early gear purchases.... Nearly everything is plastic these days anyway.
