|holy crap you're loaded |
i was a resident dj at a club for 5 years in a row so thats whats paid for my gear.plus im a radio presenter so that helps (get everything for trade prices)
|How are the stanton cd decks?|
the stantons are actually pritty good the scratching is spot on but like all cd decks it does sound a bit digital
effects are cool filter,phase,echo,pan,flanger,transform aka Cutting effect as on the pioneer djm600.
there are some things they didnt say about the deck like you can actually change the start up/power down of the track i.e make it sound like the song is starting really slow then speeds up and for the power down make the song sound like its getting slower and slower (like you would do on a TT when you click the power off) so in my eyes it is the newer version of the pioneer cdj 1000mk2 but made by stanton.i also has two cdj 800 (but inly use them for gigs) and to be real there aint anything different between them well the price is one and the looks but underneath the shell.............. nothing!
i can really see this cd deck given pioneer a hard time its great for live remixing due to the 4 hot cue buttons but in fact you can store 12 hot cue points which this is another thing stanton did'nt say.
looks nice (they look crazy in the dark like some kinda power plant or somat!)
great pitch range +/- 8,16,25,100
loads of features which have not been menstioned.
good price tag for them i paid £640 for them both (not trade price either).
Fader start funtion (great tool to use)
jog wheel is a bit heavy so watch out when you do a back spin it goes on forever.
sampler could have had more memory added to it only has 5 seconds per button.1-4
blue screen a bit hard to read the writing aint dark enought for the background colour.
when you load a cd up a tray comes out instead of like the pioneers where you can just slide the cd in.so lads whatch out for your crown jewels if you have these cd decks set up at a low hight.
overall i would give them a 9.5 out of 10
the missing 0.5 is because they are not the industry standard (YET) plus they will have to earn the respect of the top djs just like the pioneers cdj 1000 had to do.
p.s what do you guys think of dual cd players?
i.e numark cdn90?
