DJs — do you even want a jog wheel anymore?

Louis Lovacheff's curator insight, August 17, 7:08 PM

This article contemplates the need of jog wheels on a DJ's controller. The purpose of a jog wheel is to either scratch over a track or sync tracks to one another manually. The fact that this article talks about not needing jog wheels is only supporting my argument that the true art of DJ'ing is dying. Not using a jog wheel means that the DJ is pressing the sync button in order to sync two songs together, having no real feel for the beat and only basic knowledge of how two songs can be manually mixed together as far as bpm goes. The feel of mixing two songs together manually provided an immensely better feeling and takes a lot more skill. The industry standard for DJ's is a pair of CDJ's and a mixer. This equiptment is built around two jog wheels and takes a considerable amount of skill to operaate manually. I wonder what the next industry standard will be now that just pressing "sync" and "play" has become acceptable.
