    its where you have a laptop with all the tunes on, and you channel them to each turntable… and you have these special vinyls on that play the tunes coming from the laptop, so u can mix it like its vinyl, but its actually tunes from your laptop..

    there doesnt look like much difference between the 700 and the 750. the 700 is good but didnt last very long. only had mine a year and already fucked. maybe i wasnt gentle enough

    rather cool, but a wee bit expensive…
    i will buy it at some point since i rather love turntables but also at gigs for people my age birthdays etc they like mainstream so i can infuse shit music with the delight of being able to play with my turntables while rather drunk ๐Ÿ™‚

    dont buy anything american audio

    the decks ive got are citronics, which i love, but can be bought with either american audio or gemini logos on, surely there cant be any difference?

    had my first go on pinoeer cdj1000’s mk2’s and they are amazing! within seconds you get used to the feel, accurate, predictable and most of all fun,

    wish i had the money for a pair

    Cd decks seem to be the way forward but I use vinyl and will until I can afford to burn/rip my records.

    I hope they never stop vinyl

    tbh even cd decks are going out of date, if your not gonna use vinyl your aswell just getting a numark ns7 or something.

    The dmx06 looks allright. you had a go of any pioneer mixers be4? I’m after something with more effects than the djx700 had (more reverbs and such like)

    Although the beringer mixers seem like a good choice and are similar to the pioneer mixers, you can feel they are a cheap replica, and the faders and buttons on them break pretty quickly, and when using the EQ there’s pretty much only a choice of on or off . I’ve never been able to afford a decent mixer but after using my mates djm700 i’ve realised what a difference a quality mixer can make.

    Plus the effects on them sound tacky and are not something you’d want to use in any serious mix, so not worth paying the extra for them.

    dunno never used them lol … i dont do effects, im oldskool, even though i wasnt alive during the ‘oldskool’ period. even though it wasnt oldskool then.

    anyway, built in effects are pretty shite bottom line, your best off getting a normal mixer, and an effects processor / effects like dub sirens, kaoss pads etc

    The effects on most pioneer mixers are pretty decent. If used correctly can really help transitions from track to track.

    ye. im going for the djm600 me thinks.
    there was a cuple of good effects on the behringer, specialy for most house/techno noise, one being you could double up the bass kick at various speeds which was awesome (this is now fucked and when you use it it’ll just make a crackeling noise).
