    What do you prefer when djing at a gig? Turntables or a whole controller?

    Depends on the situation. If playing a hip hop party where turntable tricks and skills are needed, definitely go with the tables. If its a party where it just requires mild scratching and such then I'll go with a reliable controlled like the pioneer ddj sz

    Times has changed the way we dj/mix. Im a controller fan. I can write many things but it much more accurate when mixing and beat-macthing. Trust me i have turntables and cdj's . Here's a tip I use Traktor with their Kontrol X1 and Cdj 1000. You get the best of both worlds . Any questions how to set up please ask me. If i can show you a demo it would be mush more easy to understand the Controller Set-up.

    Turntables/CDJ. That being said, DJ backs are being saved used controllers. I thought they were wack until I saw the Pioneer DDX one and it still has the CDJ feel. It is decent but still the TTS/CDJS.

    Turntables for showcasing scratching skills and tricks; Controller for general mixing, blending and limited scratching etc.

    If you are a scratch DJ then turntables are for you, but if you are a mixing DJ controllers are the way to go.

    i would say Controller;I'm a big fan of turntables, but it takes too long to setup from previous dj

    turntables are heavy and more bulky but more fun to play on,controllers are light and much easier to transport
