kaniz said:will give that a look later, But - pretty much everyone I saw at Mutek was using laptops as their main tool. Of piknik 1, 2, and the final Nocturn, the only person I saw using records were Richie and Ricardo -- but still think a fair bit of their set was done with laptops.

when they start offering AIFF or WAV's of tunes then it will be a slightly different story...
high quality MP3's are fine if you want the track as is, but if you want to make edits, chop loops, or remix the track you want actual audio. It doesn't make sense to convert an mp3 back and forth, the bass will sound like shit.
I NEVER sample other people's tunes for my original music, but I love to take bits for my dj sets or for an edit, so with the vinyl (or cd) I can get proper audio to edit.
