A friend of mine who still scratches on vinyl was saying that he never uses the pitch control, except to slide it out of the way of his finger/hand movements.
It made me think: how often do we all use pitch? Either with the hardware pitch control, or auto-sync, doesn’t matter?
How much of your usage is the pitch on zero percentage?
For me, My first track might be at 0% but after that, beatmatching will mean that none of my decks will be back on 0% for the rest of the night. The only exception I can think of is if I’ve had to do a cut mix through silence or Echo/wash out effects Into a different genre. And even then the first track might be played at 0% but then it’s almost any % within acceptable reason to keep beatmatching
So I’d probably say that I’m on 0% pitch for about 5% of the night , if that
