I feel you. Right now I'm juggl'in within my head on whether to cop some CD Turn Tables or Serato Scratch Live. I haven't transitioned to the digitial world yet and as a vinyl DJ for many years, I feel that Serato would be the most comfortable transition. Can you please explain why you stated that you have to re-adjust with blending (in regards to Serato). I'm very curious and would like to know...Thanks..Lord_MCD said:Yes I do agree that technology changes over time. Also, what is the hardest thing for us to do is "adjust" to the change. I rock vinyl myself personally, but I won't lie as I have cds too... as well as mp3s as well. Those djs who use the CD decks do DJ, but for me I like the feel of vinyl under my hands and fingertips. Everytime I touch one, it reminds me of back in the days when I first started out years ago... you know that reminiscing feeling. *Wow*
So, what I did here recently was purchase the Serato Scratch hardware and v2 vinyl. The vinly has the same feel, and I'm telling you that you can't tell by ear/sight the difference between scratching with Serato (using pc/mac), and scratching pure vinyl.
The downside of rocking Serato is if you like to do lots of blends vs just plain scratching. You will need to readjust yourself to how to blend song (using pitch control on your decks), to keep that mix going.
BUT, all in all I embrace the Serato (not necessarily the Final Scratch), because I can keep my vinyl feel!!!!!
Just my 2 cents...
