    Default Finally got part of the setup Ive always wanted.

    ** UPDATED PICS **


    After being bored with the way that digital DJing was going for me, I decided to sell my S4 and pocket the cash to throw down on some Technics.

    Im extremely happy with my purchase, been wanting a pair since I started 10 years ago. Definitely gonna need some refurb and modifications but its a big step for me.

    Don't mod 'em! Just chuck 100 at the pair and have a full internal service.

    1200's are not to be modded - that's what 1210's are for!

    But now using all that time you had to put into a performance for your set, you get to spend it adjusting tempo, fixing drift, and making sure the songs beat matched for your standard A B Mixing

    How is that not MORE boring hehe

    Grats on your decks, Ive got a pair of mk5g i havent used in 5 years :/

    Hmm, care to elaborate? My plan was to internally ground them, paint them black and upgrade the lighting to LEDs. After the proper research of course.

    Not sure how much performance I was putting into an S4 to be honest. Im not a controllerist at all. I actually prefer more A-B mixing with some flair. My overall goal is to add a Rane 62 (switching to Serato) and upgrade my laptop.

    The S4 was promoting bad habits i.e. bombarding every track with effects, an obligation to always have at least two tracks running and "proper" use of samples. As a DJ who plays D&B (who have reputations for being stubborn lol) I feel that a track should speak for itself and that returning to the basics of mixing shouldnt be overlooked.

    As for the beat matching (drifting and cueing) and conventional mixing, I simply DGAF (with all due respect).

    Theres some truth to this. Some of the conversations here lack perspective because dj'ing style can and should be genre specific. Drum and bass is busy music. It's not made for "routines." It's made to mix. Even when Craze was doing strictly drum and bass sets, the vast majority was A to B mixing with some scratching.
