I think this #tbt is a piece of equipment that changed the DJ world forever. That little innocent blue ’vinyl’ mode button on the @pioneerdjglobal Pioneer DJ CDJ 1000 should be marked in history as the most iconic button ever revolutionising the DJ world forever, and argulaby putting the final nail in the coffin for vinyl.
I remember being at the launch in 2001 surrounded by a group of fellow geeks, all with mouths wide open in awe when we saw that these CD players were able to accurately emulate vinyl via the platter, having the ability to scratch having same characteristics as vinyl yet playing a CD.
I can’t think of any other piece of equipment thats changed the work ethics in the DJ booth, something we all take for granted today.
