Although CDs are probably still the club DJs weapon of choice, more and more people are succumbing to the flexible temptations of software mixing. In fact, you will be hard pushed to find a club night where no DJs whatsoever mix off a laptop, and with this medium growing in popularity all the time, I doubt it will be long before laptops truly take over!
