Lads, saw this over on RA real interesting points
-decline of audio due to digital
-djs playing in the re
-crap mixers in clubs
-mp3s and wavs
good interview that . when we started working on the tp , got some great tips and hints off the likes of Red Bull Music Academy website , and came up with a simple idea that quality sound in a venue was based on three things 1 the system itself 2 the acoustics of the room 3 the people behind it , to know their stuff, and give the first two details alot of TLC
one thing im starting to notice that is changing those fundamentals a bit though, is the setup of whose playing. so you've djs playing low bit rate files, constantly going into the red on the mixer, different setups on any given night messing up leads, djs not respecting the equipment and needles . im very pro-digital tbh, but what i hate about it , is that by creating so much choice and options, its messed things up alot in terms of quality, and keeping things simple is almost impossible. i've thought about bringing in a rule of thumb, to the basement anyway, about DJings using either vinyl or files of a certain size. might be hard to enforce, but it would be no bad thing in terms of getting everyone to just take their craft a little bit more passionately and creating a certain bar
Would never by a product from someone with a rats tail.
