Re: Questions for eclectic DJs using live

I'm pretty similar in my style, taste and desire, also a big Ninja fanboy. And, yes, we do mix. That's what's fun. I don't know if there is a limit on how many clips can be practically loaded into a session at once, I do two types of Live set: 1) The "broad genre" set where I load a lot of one type...

Re: is this considered "cheating" as a dj?

That's ridiculous. your friend that is. my thought is the job of a dj is to make the crowd move ( I also add playing good music to this ) the way I look at it i dont care what the hell they use or how they do it to get the job done.
