What do you think of all the new technology that is incorporated into djing like Final Scratch? You hear about "the end of vinyl" all the time, what are your thoughts on that subject? How do you envision running your label in 5 or 10 years with all the new technology? How will this affect your business?
Damn, sorry for the deep question.
well after my record box got stolen a few years ago, I bought Final Scratch...used it for a month, was disappointed and sold it. then I bought Rane's Serato Scratch (which is much better), used it for months, got frustrated with it not being 100% stable and having to set it up, and sold it. now I play vinyl, cd's and dubplates. I definitely prefer using turntables to using CD's and try to cut plates when possible but I understand why most people use CD's. they're cheap. however, I love vinyl and never wanna see it go away.
we are all thinking about the subject and now we kick around the idea of releasing CD singles and selling more mp3's. time's change and the industry has to change with it or die. we sell our stuff of iTunes Music Store and we would like to make more music available on CD for people who don't DJ.
it really IS a deep question, but there's no straight answer on that at the moment.
