    Default How much longer will timecode vinyl be around?

    Just curious on your guys thoughts on how much longer timecode vinyl will be around. As of now it seems like only reason you'd use a serato box or an NI soundcard is to get timecode vinyl support. Right now timecode cd's are pretty much out the window now that the major players have HID support. I'd really hate to see timecode vinyl go.

    Vinyl feels classic. I don't think it'll disappear any time soon.

    not all clubs/bars have cdj's with HID support, i use pioneers 800's on a thurs and 1000's on a friday, i mean i'd love the HID but it's no big deal to me.

    I'd say as long as the turntables last Which would mean another two decades at least :P

    Untill the day that you can't find parts anymore, and that the last vinyl pressing plant closses, untill then even "normal" vinyl will still be around, at least to feed us turntablists.

    god i remember when people were saying 'how long does vinyl have left...or vinyl is dead'

    but now timecode vinyls...really has it already come to this??


    as long as hip hop and turntablists keep doing traditional routines timecode vinyls will be popular. so imagine still a very long time

    I certainly don't see vinyl DVS use increasing, but I can't see a DJ future without turntables. Perhaps not in the clubs, but for the rest of the world who don't play clubs, I see it carrying on for many years. That's not a romantic notion from an old timer like myself - that's an opinion based on how many units SSL and Traktor still shift, and how many needles are still sold.

    that's not necessarily true. While the S4 is no record on a turntable its feel and how they managed to do it is much better than anything else I've ever used. It may not be NI (or maybe it will be) , but I'm confident someone will come out with something that rivals the real vinyl feel.
