The thing I don't like about Vinyl is that they usually only put 2 songs on each record. Records are just too expensive.

I would rather be able to get loads of full length tracks on CD first, so I can more easily preview and find good tracks. But for now I still want to be able to get the tracks I want to spin on vinyl. What I like about CD is that I could get loads more tracks for cheaper. But, I guess for DJing, vinyl is still the way to go. We'll see what the future brings tho. The main thing I don't like about CDs for spinning is that CDs more easily develop scratches and scrapes over time that may cause them to skip, and a skip during a set would really suck... and of course the whole feel of vinyl and all... I still enjoy that...

I wish the general music industry would just switch over to Mini-disc as the standard format to listen to music on... that would be cool. Mini-disc are smaller and more protected (against scratches and skipping) and can hold the same amount of audio. Are mini-disc's a Sony thing tho?

i'd say vinyl definitely. however,the big problem here is getting hold of hardcore on vinyl. there's one record shop to the whole town and it sells nearly every kind of dance music you can think of... except hardcore :(

i just wish it was as easy to get it on vinyl than cd,coz i'd have loads of hardcore vinyl here right now,not just about 3 hours worth

i would go for vinyl 100% if i could get my hands on it in glasgow, same ad dj mouse here, all other dance stuff is not a prob, but hardcore etc, aint happening :(

but i can get (tom wilson > scott brown > qfx > q-tex on cd single format, so thats alright, but vinyl is what i want, but if i cant get my hands hardcore vinyl from the local non - commercial stores, then cd is the next best thing



dance till the police come

I say lets put it on both Vinyl & CD then the Dj's can get their vinyl's and the fans can get the CD's. What needs to be remebered is that releasing hardcore on CD's isn't going to make it commercial so I say go for it. You can experiment more with CD's anyway by what material you put on them. It would be a good way of seeing if a track would make it on vinyl.

Tommo mate take my advice don't mention MP3 and download in the same sentance on this site or we may have another heated discussion like last time. Besides Silver doesn't like people downloading stuff that isn't rightly theirs or has been offered to them.

I go for vinyl and cd because there is some stuff you can't get on cd and some stuff you can't get on vinyl. Simple as that.

Both vinyl and CDs.....I've only got a deck about 12 months ago, so up till then, the only way to get hardcore was to get mix tapes.....no way to get full tunes...well, apart from the method that shall not be mentioned coz I will get my arse whooped LOL However, vinyl is my preffered format, but then CDs sometimes contain stuff not on the vinyl....Videos etc...

Decisions, Decisions lol

Vinyl is good to mix with. You can have more control over vinyl than a CD. You can't use your hands to vary the speed of a CD. So it makes sense to use vinyl since tracks that you could not mix using CD format, you can mix on vinyl. But, CDs are great when buying DJs mixes.

Also with now having digital turntables I think vinyl is here to stay for a while.

It's nice to get tracks that you can't get on vinyl on a cd, and the other way around, but when It comes down to it, I like mixing vinyl more than using cd turntables. So bout 99% of my hardcore is on vinyl other than premixed cd's. Stayin' with the records.

actually now that i'm thinking about it...if i had a vinyl cutter or i could get records cut for free,and now that i got broadband i'd pay for web downloads then transfer them to vinyl,no having to wait a few days for the record to come and no damage is done to it either. but i made my vote and don't have access to a vinyl cutter locally :(

also is that actually legal to do or not?

Mouse, That Really Wouldnt Be Worth Your Efforts.. You Would Have To Pay A Hell Of A Lot To Get A Half Decent Vinyl Cutter..
Around £1800 And Then The Blank Vinyl Is Dead Expensive, unless You Buy The Stuff In Bulk.. Which Unless Your Going To Re-distribute The Songs You Download.. Isnt An Option..
But We Wont Get Into That.. cos Thats Jus' As Naughty As
*Cough* MP3 Downloading *Cough* If Not More So, Because Your Making Money Then..

But Anyways.. My Oppinion Is Vinyl Is Great.. Its Jus So Versitile.. The Styles And Methods You Can Mix With Vinyl Are So Much Greater Than The Options With CD's.. However.. Sometimes CD's Provide A Cheaper Alternative..

I Personally Would Like To See A Return Of An Old Trend That Was Around In 95.. With Any Cd Compelations You Would Get The Full Tracks On One Or 2 Cd's All Unmixed.. And On A Third Cd You Would Get Them Mixed By One Of Your Fav DJ's.. Take United Dance 2.. 3 CD Compelation, Cd's 1 And 2 Were The Full Songs, Cd 3 Was Mixed By DJ Seduction.

They Used To Charge A Couple Of Quid More, But In My Oppinion It Was Well orth The Few Quid Extra...
