I am here to gain input on the use of TIDAL and any other online music streaming services any of you may have used. My main question is: are we going to soon rely on third-party media service providers to play music when DJing? I am typically subscribed to 2-3 music pools at any given time, but this new TIDAL integration has got me thinking- is manual music management (through the use of music pools and hard drives) a thing of the past?
It seems overwhelming to jump into solely relying on something like TIDAL. Being I’ve never used it, I can only imagine how much time it would take before you learn to work around their playlists, creating your own new playlists, and what if they don’t have the music you rely on? What happens if wifi cuts out? Can you have your harddrive integraded into 5000’s when also using TIDAL? Are Spotify and YouTube soon to be where we can stream all our DJ music from? I’m just trying to gain footing for how I can convert from these current time consuming methods to using a third-party app that has everything there for you. Over the last couple years people seem more shocked I can’t just connect to Spotify or the internet to stream my DJ music from.
