haha. It's bad enough dj's in pittsburgh cut each others throat and work for 50 dollars or a beer tab. Now it's who mixes better or faster? Come on.

I still can't believe this is going on but I have to contribute...  I NEVER pitch adjust and I can guarantee most of my corrections go un-noticed.  Just like shadowstar said earlier...  You just have to know when to do it.

I'll put $10 bucks that I catch my beat match and lock my shit down quicker than anyone on  here that pitch adjusts.  Any takers?
Hell I'll put 20 on it.   Even if mine still took a few extra seconds, it would sound better.

Eric
I've played with J countless times....

I'll put $100 on J. (or $50 and a bar tab) :P

Here's something I've learned the hard way...Always check the counter wait on the tone arm before you play, especially Live. Damn, I'm still reliving the horrors from Earthdance in my head...My needles were heavier than 7-up's, and I paid the price....Shittiest live set I have ever done.

Jake, once we get a bigger crowd down at our night; I'd like to see you down there.  

Pete, you've got me pegged.  $50s at the bar will definitely set me straight.  

DJ wise, I don't think anyone is cutting any throats on this message board.  I think most of us get along pretty well.

Experience young buck.  Once I get my new pc, I'll make a demo for you to drool on.  lol!  I hate posting these because they're all old but I touch the record, platter or spindle on every single mix...  Have fun.

I can't wait to put another demo out!  I've been picking up a TON of different genres / mixing styles.  I think I'm going to make two or three different mixes to put out.  I know a lounge hip hop / downtempo mix is definitely coming down the pipe but Techno / tech house / house / breaks  is first on my list.  I promise I'll touch the platter every mix for those too!

For now though, I'll just keep collecting tracks.  Anymore, I think every single week the music keeps getting better and better!  CDJs = breath of fresh air for me.

I hate sounding pretentious, but due to the nature of the post I'm going to have to suck it up, act like a hardheaded competitive man, and come across like my shit don't stink, which I don't like doing but I also don't like being doubted when I know I'm right.  

So...

I still think I can match it faster than you can.  I just tried it a bunch of times.   With both faders at 0, I put a record on.  I cued the first beat on the next record, then brought up both faders.  I threw it in, didnt touch the record and had the beats matched perfectly via pitch adjusting.  

I'll take you on, and I'll put money on it.

Pitch adjuster vs. Platter Pusher

If I lose, you win my money and get to humiliate me on lolli.   Whaddaya say?

After moving to MP3s,  I can not understand why anyone would not do the same.

Soooo much more music.    More music = better sets/programming.  

matching beats is matching beats,  big deal.

I still wanna see for myself though.   I'm a professional loser in fact, so it wouldn't be anything new.  :-P

And just for the record, I cant scratch, beat juggle, or do any tricks besides suck my own dick.    

I had to at least defend my beatmatching.
