Not everything is downloadable. Quite often songs are only available on disc. Especially getting songs from like Zoom and Sunfly. I still buy discs then rip them to computer.

I, like Lonman, don't discount discs either. My first priority when asked for a song that isn't in my library is to check the various download sites that I use and if it's available there, I will buy it and download it right then and there. If not, I will log it down and look for it at home to see if it's available on disc.

It depends:

Rig one gets everything as needed, that means downloads and CDGs as they become available. This is my main rig

Rig two gets mostly CDGs, as Its primary use is at private parties or when I have a double booking. I will buy downloads for this machine if its needed, but this rig doesn't need to be updated as often as rig one.

Getting CDGs also depends on who's asking and my needs. I'm not above spending $15 for a CDG with one unique song on it for my regulars... it keeps them coming back, and I usually take their e-mail to let them know when the CDG comes in. If I feel it's a good fit for my systems, I will buy them then as well. And If I see a good quality CDG that's discounted, I'll pick it up then too. Many of the legal KJs on here aren't shy about owning multiple copies.

I am an ODB-KJ (Only Disc Based). I am NOT computerized. I do possess several downloaded files (which I purchased from SBI), but they had all been converted to BIN Files so that I could convert them to Disc Format (with SBI's fore-knowledge and permission) for use at my shows (when I was still running the occasional show).

As a footnote, the only reason I had to purchase the song tracks in downloadable format from SBI in the first place was because I had some sort of problem playing their customized discs on my JVC player (so I had to purchase the downloaded format and do some reverse-engineering). SBI even provided me with a blank disc that contained a pre-printed index of the song tracks I ordered (on the disc surface), so that I could burn my downloaded purchases to that/those disc/s.

So to answer the OP's question... Yes. I still use CDGs.
