    That guy needs to lay off the amphetamine. He says crack but he is no crack user... he is definitely on something.

    I reckon he just has ADHD tbh, although you could be right.

    He's probably drunk too.

    "I don't care if that muthafucka's pretending to mix on pancakes."

    He seems like the type of person that would talk at you rather than with you.

    As for people who have the ability to mix on turntables, of course they deserve more respect. It's more difficult than using a controller.
    If they can mix on turntables but choose to use a controller, then the respect is still there, but someone who only can only mix on a controller doesn't deserve as much respect, in my opinion.

    I'm yet to learn to use vinyl and turntables, but I intend to. I think it's part of the craft.

    His point wasn't really about what people CAN do, but what people actually do. I started on vinyl over a decade ago, and then went straight to MIDI a couple of years back. There's NO way I would play on vinyl now, because I'm not a turntablist. It's just pointless.

    Eh? how is it anymore pointless than playing a CD or even an mp3? Turntables are just a method of playing music. Nothing pointless about that.

    As i have played with vinyl for some time i can tell you, it's not THAT difficultier than using a controller for a-b mixing. Sure, you can't afford to knock your setup around like you could with a controller, and you have to take care of needles and wax, and you have to learn to slipcue properly, and you have to learn to beatmatch with vinyl, whch basically means to learn to be gentle and not spin the platter around like it's a cdj in jog mode. But other than that? Nothing special really.
    Unless you're a turntablist, in that case i do see the need for a vinyl setup.

    Now i'm by no means a pro vinyl user, but this was the learning curve for me, so others may have totally different opinions on the subject.

    It's pointless because there's no BENEFIT to it. All you can do is A-B mixing unless you're a turntablist, so you might as well just use a controller. Same deal with CDJs, they're just pointless now. If someone wants to carry on using them, then that's fine and that's their decision, but if they start banging on about how they're "real DJs" because they use Vinyl/CDJs, then they're full of shit.
