For All You Compact Disc Haters
posted Thursday, September 06, 2001 12:25:41 AM
first off.. let me just say that i never bought a cd until i was able to record on one. i've been pretty much anti-cd my entire DJing life.
with that said... i strongly urge everyone to play with a pioneer cdj-1000. it's so close to cutting on a piece of wax that it took me less than 30 seconds to master it. and this isn't some DJ box with a fucking scratch pad that spits out wack noises that sound similar to a scratch. this shit is real, y'all. i never thought the technology would ever allow for someone to cut on a cd.
this thing had what resembles a vinyl platter on the top of it with a digital record label that spins at 33.3 RPM. grab the sound, bring it back (just as if the label was marked) and start cutting. i would say that i have a trained ear, and if i heard someone mixing live with this machine, i wouldn't even know it wasn't wax. any cut or spin back that you can do with wax, you can do with this thing.
i'm not saying that wax is going to die. i'm just saying this tool is incredible and it opens a lot of doors for things that have never been possible for the average DJ. for example, making your own acapella blend and actually cutting it into your mix. burn yourself saying things like "dj blah blah blah will fuck your ass up" and cut with it. i mean, the sky really is the limit. if one had 2 tables, a mixer and a cdj-1000 - there is nothing you can't do.
not to mention, this thing has loop and reverse features that are fun to play with.
war vinyl, but damnitman.. go play with this thing!!!!!!
Not to be a dick but ... Kram do you work for pioneer. How much did they pay you to post all that?
For a real discussion about the CDJ1000, check out:
man, keep up wit da times, dowgy. RIP to the victims.
man, i'm not angry. i'm just better than you! bahaha... just kidding.
fuck those tihngs. they'll disappear like those big video discs that came out a while ago.
the minute i see a group of individuals call themeslves a dj with those things in their bedrooms...
good grief thats pitiful.
now lets all take in the fact that i'm kidding and my opinion on these things are that they are the tools of the devil. good grief. you jeepers creepers.
read jack kerouac.
i hope ya'll have prayed to whatever deity you believe in for the people who died in the twin towers/pentagon/etc. incidents today. shites not right.
I'll stick with vinyl...As far as saying a dj name on your own cd & cuttin' it over top your mix...just find that shit on an old song or accapellas and cut it...Keep diggin'
some people just don't see the light.
this post really sucks,
you have a very valid point, and you know it's going to happen. i don't think these things should be used a turntable/vinyl substitute and i sure as hell wouldn't recommend it.
i was thinking, how retarded would it be for someone just getting into djing to buy 2 of those cd scratchmaster decks????
youre gonna spend upwards of 2500 when you could have bought 2 brand new technics, a dope ass mixer and still had a G left to buy records, its fuckin crazy.
ostrich why are you so angry?
kram's right. it does extend a DJs options.
you are angry at what you think people are going to act like.
but look at it as an innovation that will bridge the gap between vinyl and digital media.
how do you sound anyway. almost all records are made from DIGITAL sources nowadays anyway. so what are you a hater of your own record collection? because i guarantee that if the records you bought were made in the last ten years, they were pressed from a master that was created from a DIGITAL source.
and you're gonna tihnk you're cool by using a two-syllable word like "cretin." what a dumb ass. i like cd's. i burn cd's.
cd's are fun.
but you need to get your promoting ass elsewhere... because... dj's spin vinyl. not your fairy ass cd's.
go elsewhere satan.
the temptation of your fruit, well. sorry, its not a temptation because its not tempting.
fuck you and your rotten ass fruit.
i'm 100000000000 times smarter than you "idiot."
because... if i were you i would say "hey, maybe those guys don't like the idea of cd dj's"
for all ya cd haters out there...
you should've entitled the post
"for all of you dj's who like to keep it true"
just shut up.
free advertisement is lame.
this extends nothing for dj culture.
the technics sl12000 is the first and last.
30 years plus.
if it ain't broke... don't try and fix it.
i guess this would extend the "barriers" of a dj who can't do shite with vinyl.
loop it with two records you fuck wit.
or can you not count bars?
skratch with vinyl, or do your gemini's skip too much?
i could care less what you like and i'm totally just fucking with you?
i take the last one.
but my OPINION...
fuck you and your cd dj's.
ostrich.. you're an idiot. a cd player that your can cut on can ONLY extend a DJs options. there is no way in hell that this item or any item like it is going to kill vinyl off. if i thought that it would, i sure as hell wouldn't be backing it. shit.. it's people like ME that have kept vinyl alive. i've been buying wax since 1986 and i never stopped. while you and all your boys were selling you wax to go buy cds back in 1991, i was still digging for the vinyl versions and scouping up your records from the budget bin.
so don't come at me with this "shite in the face of the preservation of vinyl" crap, mang.
AGAIN.. look outside the box. this cd player is here, and it ain't going away. instead of dissing it, think about how you could use it to your benefit.
you know, no one is going to think your "cool" because you're dissing CDs and such... cretin.

no, this is a giant shite in the preservation of vinyl. there's more than one sucker in a group of dj's. and i know there's more than one sucker such as yourself who's gonna think "wow what a great idea!" right after he sticks his thumb up his ass and ponders why hip-hop sucks in 01' (96 for you shadow heads) fuck you and your magical gadgets.
you are satan.
that is the forbidden fruit in the garden of eden.
we're wiser than adam.
fuck you and your fucking apples.
peddle this shite elsewhere.
well feel free to peddle it here...
just don't expect to get props for throwing out tools of dj destruction.
ostrich.. i don't think vinyl is going anywhere. it's been around for eons. you need to just relax and go play with this thing and think about how it could only improve your arsenal.
respirata... i don't work for the company. and i thought it was wack until my boy forced me to go look at this damn thing. i was mad skeptical.
both of you kats need to open your eyes and look outside the box.
about the extra features and CDs being "cheating," i disagree. that's like saying sampling is cheating and producers have no talent. how is a loop feature cheating? some mixers have loop features (via sampler). is fader sharpness on the 07-Pro cheating? i mean, if you can't make those noises with a busted radio shack mixer, wouldn't adjusting be cheating too? where does it all end?
how about some elaboration on how the extra features are "cheating?"
you must work for this company, because i dont know anyone that would promote something so wack.
that looks like a giant shit on the face of preserving vinyl.
it does like nice, classy too.
But if the talent is there you don't need the extra junk that thing does. Cd's are like cheating, it makes anyone a dj, no talent needed.
even if you were serious.. i doubt you've got an extra $1149.00 just laying around the house.
Cool, I will get one tommorow!!! (sarcasm)
