I thought i'd check this out as i've seen a lot of Ravine vids on youtube & really liked his style & scratching but have never really seen cotts in action. As u all know, i'm not the biggest fan of CDJ's & this vid didn't exactly sway me to the digital side.

I was just wandering if people get the same enjoyment out of seeing a dj pressing loads of buttons & turning loads of knobs just to add these skipping effects as I do out of watching someone on a set of vinyl decks Cutting & Scratching? I know that a lot of people on here are bug fans of CDJ's & respect their decisions but is it just me that finds this video sooooo boring?

Mabey im still stuck in the old ways & can't appreciate the sound of CD decks but when u see someone ruining the production of the track so that they can add these horrible skipping sounds and other effects it just doesn't do it for me.

I was wandering if anyone else feels like this or should I change my name to DJ Down with CDJ's? Let me know if this vid excitied you!

P.S. A plate of food on the record deck! A plate of food?

In case you missed it, it was the whole point of the video.

what, the whole point of the video was to eat food & mix?? I thought it was a video to show us what DJ Cott's can do & what were missing out on? I must have misunderstood it.

I think this vid is really entertaining! :D And Cotts is really good on the CDJs and on the effects.

And yeah, I find it more entertaining looking on this then looking on someone that spins vinyl... And it also sounds much better!

Im tired of all these vinylfreaks that turns down CD-Djs. But Im glad that they are getting less...

No, it requires knowledge, proficiency in handling all the controls, good timing and taste for what fits at a given moment. In other words - skill.

personally i dont like lots of messing on the effects and cdj's. a little bit here and there is ok but it can get ott for me very quickly.

if the track that is being played about with sounds better with all those effects on then lots of produceres would do that sort of thing in the track him/herself

... good to watch but doesnt really enhance the music for me

Personally I find watching other people mix boring full stop. :P Rather just listen or mix myself. Prefer to use vinyl but not really fussed what others use as long as they keep me interested music wise and know how to mix smoothly.

I'm not a big fan of over using effects. Less is more. I don't like it when people scratch all the way through a mix either mind. :-/

That does indeed require skill. He managed to hold the camera with one hand, mix two tracks and eat some green beans all at once.

That's pretty badass.

First track is S3RL - Artificial Energy, just came out on Executive Digital on hardbeatstore.com.

um no.

you don't just press play and magic occurs and you are a superstar. they are precise instruments and it would be a waste of any djs skills to not embrace them.

if you are the wizard of technics, imagine how good you will be once you learn how to use cdj1000s.

seriously.

you have to pretty much learn how to dj all over again using them, minus the beatmatching part. that is if you can figure out how to phase them to each other.

they are difficult to learn, but the outcome is truely positive.

watching someone play on them is about as entertaining as watching someone move a black circle back and forth while moving a half inch square over a groove that is four inches long on the side of a turntable. lol.

watching someone mix is boring unless that person is actually doing something other than just standing there lol.

but anyway, once you have your beats matched and they are in time you could hold the same mix with a loop function for hours. try that with turntables.
