    Yo man, if you write graffiti you'd better not be
    doing any of that lame "hip-hop" shit.

    Nah, that's nice man.... what's the sticker on it?

    I know I can't afford that but my roommate's
    picking up an assload of new recording equipment
    in the next couple weeks.... and he sold one of
    his decks.

    Odds of anyone around here getting one are extremely low.

    Vestax are doing a limited run of 500, rumour has it that Q-Bert already has 15. They're going on sale for around $1000, but that'll almost definitely skyrocket on Ebay.

    Anyone who's catching QBert's tour can see him doing his set with this. I really wanted to go, and then got the dates wrong, therefore I suck.

    Seriously tho... this is many a hardcore turntablist's wet dream come true. You get a breaks CD/Minidisc/DAT/Vinyl whatever, hook it up to the line in of this and you suddenly have portable scratchability... I mean, you could almost carry this in an oversized record bag.

    DJ Kentaro gave it the thumbs up, and if you know who Kentaro is then you'll respect that opinion.

    fresh concept... i think having the crossfader directly in front of the platter would be akward though... anybody have more info on those tour dates?

    HOLY SHIT! :eek:

    I didn't ever realize that's what was going on
    there. I'm not any good whatsoever... but I
    was figuring out crabbing before my friend's
    needles broke by running his mixer to the PC
    and using pretty much static beats to practice

    That shit's nuts... if QBert didn't come off as
    such a nice guy I'd be waiting for him to come
    here so I could camp outside of whoever's house
    he stays at.

    wow - my only problem is with all the diff controls on it what happens if one breaks down especially the faders - it'll cost a fortune to fix

    i spotted that thing hovering high above roswell, new mexico. seconds later i found myself in a full on sprint being chased by lil' green djs intent on performing sick little experiments in analog on my mind. i was later released back into the general population only to share the exploits of my abduction with the world through the pages of the daily sun. for real... check out this weeks issue.
    anyways, its about time vestax has crunched some numbers with q-bert to develop something next level.

    explain to me how using the fader and all the other shit, would not cause this thing to skip on occasion?
