I hear you - everyone on this forums knows my feelings when it comes to DVS; You stop playing an instrument and start playing a PC. The tactile relationship of having a physical vinyl that is the music means you're not disconnecting from the artistic form of playing but that is broken the moment you look at the screen and start engaging the left brain side.

Ideally, I'd love a tiny screen by my decks that I have to look at (not stare at the entire time) and is purely used for loading up the next track. The less engagement with the computer the better,=.

Then there's a sound argument and although vinyl technically isn't as clean as a digital copy, I so much prefer how it sounds through my needles and vestax mixer.

Realistically though, I've bought less than 10 vinyls in the last two years and given my constraints having every track I ever need a few clicks away is a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

Phase just takes the annoying part of out DVS. It doesn't change the art as such - there's nothing you can do on phase that you can't do on Traktor or Serato. It mainly just solved a problem with timecode, the annoying the 1kh tone etc.

Kinda off topic..

Looks like Beatport has a subscription service to their whole catalogue.

Yeah it's called Beatport Link, where you can stream everything onto the supported dj software.

They're streaming though. They've realized that it's cheaper to pay artists streaming rates than sell music.

It's only streaming though - they use the term "redownload" but AFAICT it just means streaming as many times as you want.

There's no way I'd ever rely on wifi during a set so it's a pass for me.

Oh frak it then, there are so many tracks I want back that I lost from a damaged HD.

It would take a special kind of crazy person to rely on streaming for a set....

Yep.

There's already enough shit to go wrong, but fuck it, lets rely on wifi or even better your phone data connection, in a club while playing out.


@Jaun

I think they're aiming at the bedroom DJ market (which in fairness is massive) and maybe the corporate/mobile DJ where you're you're doing a set in a office building or conference space.

Again, you'd still have to be nuts, but being able to fulfill every request for a track is how some DJ's make a living *shudders*
