Re: The New "BEATLOCK" feature

If I was to do it on these new cd mixers that do the beat matching for you it would be too easy and no fun, plus it wouldn't have that "basement" sound to it.You can easily tell a cd dj versus a turntable dj when listening to a mix cd, it just sounds too perfect, and often they still don't know about timing breaks and counting beats. You have to know your records and also how to read its not even the same sport IMO. Not to mention analog just sound better, especially the bass that comes from freestyle..After reading some other threads tonight, there are some who don't understand the art of beatmatching and what it means, its an integral part of freestyle..."those who know...know...djc.
I agree Coast .... I really agree with the parts above the I bolded out.
