    You can learn how to beatmatch manually with a controller. It's actually not that hard at all. I never understand why people make such a big deal out of it.

    i have mixtrack pro... the pitch travel is quite small ... its not like the cdj where u can move it a mile up or down... so the movements r really small

    hopefully gona be investing in a s4 soon because this 3 page mapping can be quite a pain

    In the way way back, I got two tracks beat matched, one was higher state of conciouness the other this banging Sunday Club thing. I drooled. It felt good to break apart the the two tracks into one piece. That was 20 years ago. We have moved on. Practice your phrasing look for the sweet cue points. Learn where you need to do the work or let the track do the work. Notice what makes you shake, what makes them shake, keep every one shaking. It is about you and your style not your mates. I'm loving dropping classics with cue point juggles because it makes me groove, never mind the hate, I just see the envy.

    I showed up for a gig yesterday with the s4 and another DJ there was like "that's a nifty looking TOY". I just smiled at him and threw on a quick demo using some hot cue sampling.

    He Just said "woah"

    If you're using digital controllers to their full potential and not just because they are easier to mix with than people won't hate nearly as badly

    if people really poo themselves about what you do just set your laptop so you can close the screen without it shuting down and then show them what you can do , if thats too hard for you map a button that comes up as like a bass kill or summit but is actually a sync button and before you bring the next song is turn it off, of course de activate your sync lights then let them have a go watch them train wreck

    CDJ200 pitch fader = +/- 0.02%
    Smallest possible adjustment for 175 BPM DnB = 0.035 BPM

    Midi @ +/- 10% = +/- 0.16%
    Smallest possible adjustment for 175 BPM DnB = 2.03 BPM note this is worse than a CDJ100 which are pretty much thought to be useless

    Meaning it's impossible to even roughly match a 175 track with a 174 track. Or with a 176. Or 172 etcetc.

    You could use a smallest pitch range, say +/- 6% but then you're still at a min of +/- 1.2% so you still couldn't get anywhere near an accurate mix.

    It's bollocks my friend. Use an encoder, fuck midi for pitch faders!
