    Default What's the difference

    What's the difference between a new-style DJ of nowadays and a DJ Shadow performance, where he uses a MPC3000 with effects (EFX-500) and Turntables/CDJs to recreate his "Organ Donor" track.

    It's not intended as a diss. But maybee I'm not getting something, because I don't see a huge difference.

    Not much difference at all if you ask me.

    Difference is you can now do it for a fraction of the cost and setup time. Also a much smaller foot print, which in turn saves time so you can add more layers...

    he's not using a computer that people are familiar with, so they assume it's "real musical equipment" as opposed to something they could "get at the Apple store."

    ^^ This plus the idea of anybody that can use a computer could do it!

    It also means if you were a dj 'before' that you have to seriously beef up your game if you wanna stay 'competitive' in comparison (technically speaking - obviously there's way more than that hopefully) because if you don't you're already way behind.

    The good thing is, if you embrace new technology you too have also way more creative possibilities than before.
