FFS I do look at turntables as an instrument, do you know me? I have turntables (they're under the desk due to the APC and what I can do in Live, kinda sucks), I've taught myself to beat match and juggle records, I have Qbert and scratch videos, I've seen turntablists in concert and listen to their CDs. I respect the art form, I understand how this is not the same as full vinyl but I'm not so narrow sighted to understand what's going on.
your examples were really weak, that's all.
it's 8 frigging bucks!! who cares?? someone stuck timecode vinyl control into a handheld device, do what you want with it.
i think he was agreeing with you in the same sense that i commented on this topic and that is that, this is a cool app for sure. But if dj's started using something like this in a live setting, where the equipment you rely on matters and the show you put on matters, why would you skimp out on a corny little app.
personally, when i play my concerts, i bring my biggest, loudest, brightest, flashiest, big toys lots of buttons equipment. Even if im playing in some dudes basement for 20 peple.
+1 on the whole guitar hero controller comment earlier!
I think if a went to a concert/club and saw a dj using a silly app in a professional setting i wouldnt be impressed (im a gear whore also though!). NOW if i was going to watch something like my fav 8bit artist hell i wana see what kinda stuff he comes up with out of his nintendo, etc etc.
not hating at all!
like i said, cool app but almost zero practicality in a professional setting. I dont think i would have half as many paid dj gigs as i do now if i rolled up with an iphone
