    you are a complete idiot; describing me as having a 'shallow mind' makes absolutely no sense. The only reason i think drum and bass is utter rubbish is because i am a good pianist and classical guitarist, and can appreciate proper music, so i dont like it when some imbecile puts together some rubbish on his computer and get credit for it by those who know no better.
    Mate. Just stop right now. I don't care if you are Vladimir Horowitz (try looking that up, musical genius). I don't know what you think "proper" music is, presumably classical music, which I enjoy enjoy very much, but no one on here cares about your views, as you have shown yourself to be rather ignorant and stupid.

    You are making a really big sweeping statement by saying that -
    ... some imbecile puts together some rubbish on his computer and get credit for it by those who know no better.
    which is utter rubbish. Great, you have expressed your "views" in an incoherent bubble of insults and stupidity, but if you aren't interested in what's being discussed, then get the hell out of the thread. Perhaps check out the classical music society.

    For the rest of you guys, check out an album by Klute called "No One's Listening Anymore"

    Making sweeping generalisations like these is shallow minded, especially when they are not based on any real facts. Sure, there's crap drum and bass, just like there's crap in every genre. Don't rubbish it just because you don't understand the skill and effort that goes in to composing/producing a good tune.

    How does being classically trained have anything to do with your musical tastes?? Quite a number of the scene's biggest producers are classically trained musicians, but that's irrelevant.
    Also, I played the drums for ten years and the piano for about 5; I love classical music, and I love drum and bass. The two are not mutually exclusive.

    It doesn't matter how music is created, the instruments don't make the music. All that matters is the feeling it creates, and If you don't feel it, simply change the station

    does anybody know the most responsive decks? at the moment i have rubbish belt driven decks and am looking to upgrade to direct drive. i was wandering what decks have the greatest torque for those quick start ups :confused:
    or maybe you can just recommend decks that you have found reliable

    Most new direct drive turntables have a good amount of torque. I had Numark Pro-TTs and they had a faster pickup than Technics.
    Having said that, I still sold my Pro-TTs for a set of 1210s. With the Numarks I found I could never leave the pitchshifter alone, I was constantly making minor adjustments. I moved on to Technics and suddenly mixing became effortless and more fun. I have never used a turntable with a better pitchshifter, they just feel right..
    They're 30 years old and still found in nearly every club that still rocks vinyl. You can get more powerful decks and ones with gimmicks such as reverse and flashing lights, but you'll probably want to switch to 1210s within a month!
    If you can afford it, get them! Otherwise, I reckon the new model Numarks are pretty sweet.
    I have also used the Vestax silver turntables: Great motor, solid platter. But I found the pitchshifter too loose for my liking.
