    Default Zedd on the Sync button

    I ALWAYS use the sync button! It’s 2012, time to wake up and realize no one gives a shit about equipment etc., It’s all about having a good time!

    And yet other DJs play prerecorded sets, and get slammed for it. I guess Zedd gets a pass because he uses the "controllerists" wet dream hardware.

    If I remember correctly, he had a recorded set with porter robinson which was pretty cool (until their laptop froze ><). They had sync on but they were making some cool mash ups and what not. I see where your coming from but theres a big difference in using sync and playing pre recorded. I know sync djs who suck, but I also know sync djs who would eat up any manually beat matching dj. Zedd is far from being a carl cox or a-trak when it comes to djing but I don't necessarily think he just hits sync just because he can't teach himself to beatmatch by ear.

    What's the point of even being on stage with DJ gear then, if the computers just going to do it for you? If you're taking out the manual process, why not just remove it entirely? It's not like he has to read a crowd and carefully select his beats, he just plays his set, and expresses it a bit, using sync in that kind of context just takes the majority of the actual mixing out.

    If there was a complex, clip launched, or such, set done in a more production-oriented workflow, I could see how sync would be useful, because there's so much going on, and the performance is fueled by your fingertips. With a Traktor workflow, you load the track, you cue the track, you bring the track in, and you flex the track a bit, having the software do half of that for you just seems like laziness.

    I agree with that for the most part, but you can have complex sets with traktor as well imo

    See all those people there? When you can pack a house like that I think you are entitled to deliver your music in whatever way you choose. Sync is not going anywhere, get with the times. This subject is so old, if you dont like sync, it's pretty simple, dont use it. Zedd is an incredibly gifted musician who comes from a classical music background, I'd imagine he has more talent in his toenails than 99% of the haters do in their whole being.
