To answer your question, most djs use an app called Bomes midi translator. What this does is recognize certain midi strings and converts it to say text or an action/script. Basically, these knob turns are triggering Bomes to send an sms to the dealer for say , more cocaine, or give the girl at my 2 oclock some sexy pills. The great thing about this program is that you can really control the output by say the speed of the turn, or direction. So you can give literally 4 commands per knob. x 3 knobs on the channel you aren't using. And this doesn't include macro commands

12 commands.

need cocaine.
need meth
need cocaine and meth with a dash of vicodin
bring lime juice, a spoon and a clean syringe
bring me my premixed set [] A,B,C,D ...
give hot girl at [angle] [drugs]
give hot boy at [angle] [drugs]
kick the black guy out.

Exactly. It pleases the crowd. I've seen Tiesto turn knobs at key points just to look like he's doing something.

I honestly can't blame them though. I would do it too!

This post says a lot about you. Clearly you enjoy doing illegal drugs.

yu[, i also like to drug boys and girls and fuck them. I also hate black people. I mean i said that too.

or i'm having a go at djs. My humour is not intended for low medium to high more on the retard spectrum. And if you must know , all the drugs I do are quite legal and regardless of the few times a year i might go to down , I am as clean as that gay dude on that home cleaner with the bald head.

I suggest you have someone navigate your way around my thoughts next time. Thanks Korky.

I wasn't hating. I think your posts are the best on the forum.

i mean if we are going to psycho analyze things. the fact you think my post indicates my drug habits when it clearly is aimed at djs would say more about your habit than mine. So there. You just got psycho-anal-ized.

haha this made me laugh. OT the problem of some styles is that you have like 2 minutes where you don't know what to do. You can jump,clap, touch the eqs, have a shot... i've a variety of jesus poses to do also. My fav one yesterday, a full bottle of the best vodka i've ever taken, great laughs drinking it with the others on the booth and smoking, a lot of people surely though we were doing cocaine.

No, they didn't, and please stop pretending you're at the same level of accomplishment as DJ RYAN™, because no one's buying what you're selling.
