I NEED SOME SERIOUS ADVICE (Ayres,Cosmo,anyone)
I have been racking my brain bigtime the past few days about something very important to me.I am SERIOUSLY thinking about making a DRASTIC change to my setup and the way I do my thing, but I dont really know shit about this stuff..so I thought I would come and ask people that I know I can trust.OK heres the deal..I currently use two 1200s,vestax 05proII,MPC2000XL all ran through my DELL using Cubase to record with...but I am thinking about possibly doing one/some/all of the following:First thing I am thinking I might do is sell my whole DJ setup(1200s,etc) AND my MPC..and buy a pair of CDJ thingamajigs to use for DJing(taking place of the 1200s)...and use CUBASE or whatever program to sample,make beats,etc(instead of my MPC). The thing is if I do this..I have a lot of dope vinyl(that I would HATE to get rid of..but if I use a CDJ to play CDs..I really wouldnt need the wax). Then I could sell all my 12"s,etc on ebay or whatever and make a pretty good bit of scrilla (which I REALLY COULD USE right about now). But, I dont know how burning CDs from the net(mp3,etc) is quality wise. I know alot of you guys do this..and could school me on it.Second thing I might do is just sell one 1200 and buy only 1 CDJ thingamajig, and just use one CDJ and one 1200 to DJ with.(which means keeping my wax..and making no $$$) After seeing how easy it is to sample,sequence,edit and all with Cubase..I have realized I dont really need this 2000XL. I love the fucking thing,and its what I am used to but if I dont need it..I mine as well get some dough for it.I came to the Strut to get some advice because I know a lot of you know what time it is when it comes to this shit..so I hope I can get some good advice and pointers.HELP!!?!??!?!
