I would like to try here too :)

I have now 1 CDJ 400, I'm still waiting for the second and for my Numark DXM06.
By the way, I have that -> http://img1.lesnumeriques.com/produits/74/2585/74_2585_2.jpg and so I mix with that mixer and VDJ to select the tunes... I don't really use features of VDJ like master tempo (it's not really accurate at all).

Is it considered Hardware ?

do you use vdj to adjust the bpm/pitch (ie the "sync" button)?

Nop, i change the pitch on my mixer and I sync tunes with the jogs of my mixer too... Sync on VDJ is not accurate at all so it's useless...

well, i reckon it's not much different than mixing with real hardware then, but still i'm afraid we can't make any exceptions, out of fairness against others.

well, one set of comments did come in after all.


Set 1:
Pretty good overall, second half more enjoyable than the first. Didn't enjoy opener, is now a little cliche, and first track was a little too hard for the rest of the set. Nice mix of driving versus melodic pieces. Lots of vocals, alternated with drivers.


Set 2:
Started slow. Wonderfully emotive at the 50m mark, but wasn't enough for me to get into it. And how similar were the tracks at 27m and 51m? Very melodic after the 10m mark though.

Set 3:
Starts deepish. Complicated at 15m is dreadful. Improves a little through the middle third. Falling? How 2007. Some of good tracks, but poor vocal choices drags it down.

Set 4:
Started with melody and by 16m has good energy level already. Nice melodic tracks throughout. End was lively, but seemed to slow down a little, like a soft landing.

Set 5:
Start is progressive-ish, first 25m doesn't really excite me. Falling, again!? Falling twice in 6h of music is three times too many. Second half put me to sleep.

Set 6:
Starts with mood. Love the driving tune at 30m. Nice melodic bit at 38m. First half is flat, then turns up the energy at the mid-point, but doesn't quite take flight.


as always, drop me a PM if you wanna know which number you had.
