    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.
    it would be interesting to know what the general consensus is on using pioneer CDJ's within the dnb scene, or do the dj's just tend to stick with vinyl?

    i don't think they are as good as vinyl. my friends got em and he sounds good on them but gets everything wrong when using vinyl. i think that using vinyl is more skillful and keeps it old skool!

    so who did 'westfest 2005' then?
    unfortunetly it was the same as you too much money at a time when i allready owe £800!!

    i prefer vinyl an all not that im any good at mixing, but i found it easier to beat match when i used vinyl (used to go out with a techno/hard trance dj and he taught me a couple of things :cool: )

    although i can see the benefits to cdj's, a few (part-timers, lol) hardcore dj's that i know use them, cos its easier to transport cd's than it is vinyl-that stuff weighs a ton :eek:

    but then theres little scope for scratching with cd's..

    I love vinyl, simply because its more fun to mix with. Saying that, I wouldnt be able to play my own tunes and other creations without the CD-js! So I'd say I cant live without either!
    Actually, I think the best of both worlds is Final Scratch. With that you get to mix hands-on with vinyl, but it gets all the audio from your laptop! Clever stuff!

    but then theres little scope for scratching with cd's..
    Actually quite a few of the newer CDJs allow you to scratch, and the quality is very good from what ive heard.

    The Sanctuary was a fantastic place! Shame it was such a mission and I only went there twice, but Im glad I made the effort. Top nights.

    can anyone tell me the name of the song that has the lyrics
    "who told you, you could do it like that" :confused:
    i know that i should know it but the name has escaped me and searching breakbeat with the lyrics as a title produced nothing so it must be something different!

    My guess would be 'Who told you' by Roni Size.. I got it at home, but I cant remember if that's how the lyrics go!

    totally agree wit jonsi, hype, zinc, blackmarket run the dnb scene. Ave u heard sweet harmony, by Ratpack nd nicky blackmarket?! its harsh!
    what the hell are you talking about? firstly ratpack do not mix or produce D&B, they're strictly breakbeat hardcore, second they did not produce sweet harmony, it was was made by liquid.

    heard it was a complete disaster, security was **** and the DNB crews were ****in' up the HHC lot. Total **** up; actually heard a funny story of how a HHC raver got approached by a D&B guy, the D&B head goes 'you want trouble' the HHC bloke replies 'NO! i'm just a raver' and undid his shirt to show the HHC angel, in response the D&B guy nutted him.

    harsh, but funny!
