You're both wrong and 90, stop assuming, you make an ass out of you and me. Hawk, it's was fairly recent. If I feel like it, I'll find my ticket and give you the exact date. He still spins vinyl so get over it.

looks more like Hitler than Jesus...

And to answer your question, no vinyl is not going anywhere. it never will. There are far more records being released on vinyl than any digital format. The reason why you see less DJs use vinyl is because it is bulky and fragile. Who the hell wants to carry around cases of records when you can just transfer them on a disk as backups and use that. It's just more convenient and you don't have to 'rape' your records every time you do a gig.

And vinyl doesn't sound any better than CDs. That's a load of BS. it's the same damng thing whether it is in bits and bytes or in grooves. Stop saying it because it makes absolutely no sense. the reason why vinyl is preferred over CDs is because you have more physical control over it, not because it sounds better or warmer, like some believe.

i thought ferry still uses vinyls every so often.

but i think DJ's still have vinyls but most venues have CDj's so thats why you see them using just CD's now.

you can just say a year ago. it's very simple. As for Armin it's just my observation . I first seen him here in NY in 2003/4, and at least 4 more times after that and I've never seen him use vinyl.

That's because the venues in NY primarily have CD decks. I've seen tons of DJs in NY spin CDs where as when they spin out in Vegas, I've seen the same DJs use records. Bad Boy Bill is a perfect example of that. I would do the same thing.

90, you need to make it more obvious when you are joking around dude.

I wasn't mad at you, I was just saying but I'll say this for myself mostly that the internet can make it hard to tell whether someone is joking around or not. You and I would have understood each other better if we were hanging out in person and probably would have laughed our asses off too man. No worries my friend!!!

You can tell that I'm joking when I say "90, you suck" or I'm still not quite sure what means.

It does sound warmer. There's a difference between analog and digital which the human ear can pick up. If you have a CD with the same track as on one of your records, compare the two and you will see the difference in sound. I agree that neither one sounds any better than the other. It's a matter of preference at that point.

I agree with that DG...for the truely inflicted there's always vinyl emulation...makes your CDs sound just as warm as vinyl...if you wish including crackling and hissing etc.

The last time I saw Armin actually use vinyl was in early 2006. When you tour as much as he does it just makes more sense to use cds.

I've seen him use vinyl around 2005-06.

I also recall reading an interview with him around the same time that he still hangs on to vinyl for his live shows.

As for DJ's using vinyl in general, Chris Fortier is one of those major acts who shows no signs of letting it go.

Here's a little excerpt from an recent interview:

Quote:
Vinyl is obviously an important thing for me when I'm doing a record of any kind, as I want it to be on vinyl because I'm almost all vinyl myself.

The whole interview is actually very interesting.

Vinyl is so expensive to make and takes up so much room I really don't see it lasting too much longer even though it's still fun to use.

i have NEVER used cd's when DJin...not once...dont really have a desire to do it either.

maybe its just me, i dont know, i reckon theirs a lot of DJ's that have the same love of vinyl as me. guess im just ur average ideallistic traditionalist. i prefer the hard graft of luggin a record box around and the extra effort it takes to mix vinyl (imo).

i remember years ago when CD mixing was becoming a more realistic possibility in the DJin world and most DJ's i spoke to or heard speak on the subject said they wudnt ever abandon vinyl and that the CD idea was detractin from what DJin was all about.

now most of em probs play CD's...way to stand up for wot u believe in
(bunch of friggin liars )

its a matter of woteva u wanna do, u DO IT. as for me al stick to me vinyl. i can still get it all over the U.K so its not a problem for me.

You might want to read this. Vinyl is not going anywhere. People don't care about the price and most music manufacturers don't either. People also aren't concerned about the space or lugging it around to their gigs unless they are lazy, they don't like to exercise and they live in some dinky little shack or studio.
