Post Getting started
I am going to start DJ'ing, but I'm still not sure if I will use vinyls, or serato live scratch. I would like to hear some suggestions ; ).

hmm nothing beats the feeling of vinyl in your hands so I prefer mixing with vinyl. it's just more fun for me

i'm buying vinyl for about 2years and a half and of course it's very expensive but I haven't regret it for a second

don't know what the future brings though.

I think most of the people, including me will advice you to use vinyls.
Its not the cheapest option but its the most fun way to start mixing.

see it as a hobby é

nothing more satisfying than finding that one record you were looking for in the back of an old curver on some record fair where you were actually looking for some funky or hip hop tracks

Totally agree!

Always fun to pass by the record shop after school and listen to some music. It's not the same if you listen at sites like juno, chemical, etc ...allthough I also buy a lot from them.

I do agree here for a small part it's idd nice find a records you've been wanting for ages in a curver for 2,5 euro. On the other hand where are these recordshops in Belgium today? U've got the recordfairs I agree upon that. But after school passing by the record shop? for dnb I think those days are long over (in Belgium)...if I see it now from personal experience in Antwerp u got Wallys and USA Import. Browsing through their collection takes me 15 minutes mostly records you heard before on Breakz or on a Myspace page. You leave the store with two records and 24 euro less in ur pocket. Is that so much more romantic then just buying these tunes for 4 euro on Itunes?
I'm talking about new releases...for the old ones I also still search my ass off. But I don't think a starter will immediatly go for the old skool rare stuff.
Just my opinion on this matter...

Pro's

+ Storage Space
+ Mobility
+ Cost Reduction
+ If you're a producer, you can play out new or unfinished tunes without costlyl dubcutting (i don't like cdj's)

Con's

- Not every tune has a quick mp3 release (i should underline and stress this bit)
- Some venues aren't compatible (crappy needles, always bring your own as a backup)
- More EQ'ing needed then playing out regular vinyls
- When swung in a correct angle, you can take out anybody standing in your way with a full recordbag and nothing will get broken, if you do this with your serato laptop bag, you shit will get merked :teeth:

Buying online will get you far enough, but it's costly with all the shipping that's involved. Still, it's a sad state of affairs :/
