Sound Check Colby’s Vinyl Mode
posted by June 21 at 10:50 AMon
Colby B lays it down. The dance floor is her servant. She drives it, slays it, filets it, and parlays it. She gropes it, isotopes it, and slices cantaloupes with it. She mashes the hammer into sexual orbit.
The one piece of equipment that got me started as a DJ was the CDJ-1000. I had always been interested but lacked a proper record collection. I worked for a million record labels back then and was always getting pre releases and promos so I had tons of CD’s.
The CDJ-1000 was released and I jumped at the bit and started teaching myself. I got a lot of frowns from the vinyl fanatics, but they started to catch on and I couldn’t rent my gear out enough. I think every major hip-hop DJ that’s come through town has laid their hands on my gear.
With the CDJ, digital can be scratched. Digital doesn’t sound digital.
How does it do it?
It uses a 1-bit digital-to-analog converter and Legato Link Conversion, which Pioneer claims adds third- and fifth-order harmonics to the CD audio, extending the frequency response up to 40KHz (CD audio stops at 20KHz). The added frequency response is supposed to make CDs sound more like analog recordings.
Colby is a mainstay and workhorse. Resident nights include Comeback, Club POP, HotMess, Bang Bang, and Club Heaven.

Loop In / Out Adjust - The ability to adjust both the In and Out points of a loop stored in memory.
Scratch Play / Cue - In vinyl mode, the top of the jog dial functions like a turntable. Pressing down stops the music and allows you to scratch or cue your track by rotating the jog dial in either direction.
Tempo Master Tempo - Speed up or slow down the beat without any noticeable difference in how the vocal and instruments sound.
Digital Output - Keep your scratching and master tempo playback entirely in the digital domain. Users who simply want to use the digital output for archival purposes may do so via the digital mode switch.
