DJ SHAFT(69)- The Sound Test of Fire-Vol_1
Bringing Down Jah’s Fire
AKA-5000 Mics, Flamenco Fire and a Bike
This is the ultimate trial by fire of the whole CDJs/Turntables with standard hardware mixers and sound equipment VS a Computer Based Mp3 formatted virtual soundsystem.
One set was mixed on with two Pioneer CDJ 100s, a Technics 1200 PRO Limited (only had two vinyl records, soooo hard to find), and a Roland
DJ2000 mixer with all recording done on a Roland VS2480CD 24-Track directly from the main output.
One set was mixed using a custom built virtual MP3 system using Traktor3 and PCDJ REDD based programming, and a customized Roland based virtual MIDI/Digilog interface sound mixer similar to Audio8 that comes with Traktor Scratch.
I also have MIXX PADD Pro added as a time coded outboard deck so I can do the same thing as I could with any other scratching capable hands on CD player. I can get the virtually the same effects as if I were actually using vinyl and scratching.
My virtual mixing program includes many of the same features as Traktor, like the 4 CD decks and the same type of built in mixer. The program that plays the MP3s is almost identical to Traktor except for the features I have added in like MIDI and VST loop and sample programs.
I also have the Roland 24 track/64 channel mixer built into my main hard drive, so as to get the identical mixing sound without the hassle and risk of taking my studio to the illegals and Places of high risk.
Both mixes were recorded directly from the Roland VS2480 program so that a comparision could be made between the standard setup and the virtual based system. The CDJ set was recorded on the hardware Roland and the other mix was recorded with the Roland virtual software suite on the hard drive.
I will let everyone know which mix is which after people have had plenty of time to listen to them. I don’t want to bias anyone’s opinion ahead of time, so we will have a blind test to see if people can really tell the difference in the quality of CDs compared to MP3s.
THESE ARE NOT DARK SETS, BUT I WAS PLAYING TO A CROWD THAT WAS IN A PEACEFUL AND HAPPY VIBE, SO THIS IS WHAT CAME OUT. I GUESS THIS IS WHAT I THINK OF AS A CHILL OUT SET! BOOM YA'LL!
BTW- I am doing a really nice and dark Rasta Vibes set tomorrow night for our Babylon's Blood On the Moon party. I post the two sets of dark stuff so I can also get that kind of sets recorded to give all you dark blood freaks a good chance to listen to something more in the line of Triplag.
STAY TUNED FOR MY BURNING DOWN BABYLON: BLOOD ON THE MOON MIX TO BE POSTED SOON.
A HUGE THANK YOU AND MUCH RESPECT AND LOVE FOR ALL THE ARTISTS AND THEIR WORK, MAY IT BE MOST BLESSED! WITHOUT YOU THERE WOULD BE NO FIRE!

YOU BE THE JUDGE! CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCES IN THE SOUND? I MIXED IT AND I CAN’T REALLY TELL MYSELF. I KNOW THAT BOTH SETS ARE PROBABLY AS GOOD AS ANY I’VE DONE RECENTLY.
FOR ALL THINGS GIVE PRAISE AND THANKS TO HIM! MAY JAH’S FIRE CLEANSE AND PROTECT YOU FROM THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF BABYLON. RESPECT AND BLESSINGS! MUCH LOVE!
Cool stuff super on fire
