I have all the computer software needed to make beats and samples. I was wondering if it would be better to burn the samples on cd and then use them to scratch and mix on a PS2 or to purchase a vinyl cutter for 10 grand just to have the samples on vinyl, it is much cheaper to burn cd's than to purchase a vinyl cutter. All my freinds that do techno mixing use Turntables and they laugh at me when I suggest doing it on cd. But they purchase all the vinyl samples and don't make/use thier own.

Some clubs we go to won't even let you mix unless your using vinyl. I personally think vinyl is the old way of doing things since the digital age is here. I just want to make use of the software I have, since owning this software we have made up 16 cd's of samples and about 10 full cd's of mix's.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like a no brainer to me! Why pay 10 grand when you can do it so much cheaper on CD. Your friends that laugh just think they know everything, and that their way is the only way. They don't know diddly! Big Grin Just do it your way and show them they don't know what they're talking about. (peer pressure is not a good thing) I started out spinning vinyl, and with the equipment out these days there's not much you can do on vinyl that you can't do on CD. Yet there are things you can do on CD that you can't on vinyl. Be your own man, if your friends have something to say, screw 'em!!

As far as the club owners go, it shouldn't matter to them what you spin on, but how well you do it! They are probably just miss informed by people like your friends, or they used to DJ and are stuck in their ways.

Unfortunatly, no matter how good you do, there will always be someone out there to say "you don't DJ you just push buttons" Well, thats just their opinion and just like A holes everybody's got one! (just some peoples make them look like an A hole!!) Razzer
