    I think because of this phenomenon, after a while it becomes necessary to stop trying every new piece of gear, and work with what you’ve already got.

    I’m been a long time reader of the FutureMusic blog and this is one of the better stories I’ve read here. Every since I read this yesterday, I’ve been thinking about it in the back of my head. I really like the observation about how Cue points onthe CDJs exposed the potential of the digital world to the DJ community, as well as the “I know Kung-Fu” Matrix analogy. That struck a chord in me.

    After reading this and deliberating over the question, I still don’t know where I stand on the issue. Lot’s of interesting roads here to go down and explore.

    I’d really like to see more stories like this in The Future!

    GREAT article. In my opinion, progress is always a good thing, in any industry. That statement won’t be popular with traditionalists, and they will argue that advances in technology do not necessarily mean progress, but technology ultimately allows DJs to explore more creative avenues instead of focusing on mechanics (as you pointed out). I’m always going to be an advocate for any tools that allow a person to express himself (or herself) more completely and creatively.

  4. Good article of course the technology help us a lot but we can’t miss the point that the technology came to help us not to [en]slave us, and i agree with Isobar – is good to try all possibilities to choose the best one for you but keep in mind the human came first and should be the master mind behind the machine.
    Ah one more thing the art of kung fu came first so be an artist.
