just think of it this way, are most people still rockin cars with no power steering and a fuckin a trak? No, because technology changes. You dont hear people with bmws getting screamed at to remember the roots and were the car came from. I know its different with music, but you just have to accept that people using cdjs or software are in the game the same way you are, with the same love for music, but using different technology. you can say its easier, but that doesnt mean its going to sound good. I had a mpc1k a few years back, motif rack, logic pro, synths ect.. and I heard another kid in my school was into makin shit, so i was talking to em, turned out he had frooty loops and a keyboard and an old ass deck. I thought in the back of my mind that this kid aint shit, for the fact that hes using fruity loops and a keyboard haha. but the next day he brought me in a cd of some of his stuff, it sounded pretty good, I was shocked. getting caught up in the hype of saying that cdj's and software is wack compared to turntables is bullshit. Its all about the love for the music.
Nicley said. Thats what I always say, its not about what you use, but how you use it.
Another example is this guy i know. he has over $20K of hardware in his home studio, and he cant get shit from it.
I use ProTools, some plug ins, and a $50 M Audio controller, and a 1200. I think, as well as many others have told me, that im above him by leagues.
He makes good shit dont get me wrong, but I just dont hear the 20K in it.
Get to know what you use, and you can do anything pretty much.
