It faiaait more than 10 years I played vinyls and I wanted to mix other things without ruining myself so I finally made the purchase of this pack to see, and begin playing with timecode without blow my wallet.
This is very resource intensive because at the beginning I did turned seamlessly with a computer barely 512mb of ram (it goes without saying that I have limited graphic resources, remove the bpm counter and other useless stuff)!
Simple setup even for me who am not very good with computers ... No compatibility issues encountered to date.
I now use a small Sony Vaio.
The software works perfectly and is very stable even with a small configuration as I mentioned above. It really is not greedy.
Then, to avoid re-installing the software several times (as stated by another user), you just think to connect the sound card before starting the program and close the software completely before removing.
I use the pack mk2 for almost 2 years and am always satisfied. The grip was immediate and I was pleasantly surprised by the report / quality / price. The feel is very realistic, the latency is insignificant, the software is stable and it works flawless.
The sound card is quite good and well above his little sister (U-Mix 44). I made a few evenings and I've never met a particular problem. The passage on vinyl is very easy via a function "bypass" to mix the vinyl and mp3 without special handling and effects are present in fairly nice easy to use.
All the friends who came tried adopted (even more resistant to timecode) because for the price, it's really fun.
What I like least: the convertos that are a little lighter. Well mastered on vinyl (as in D & B track with a face by 45t), the loss of quality is necessarily feels a bit during the convertion to digital format.
With the experience I would do this choice without hesitation. For this budget, I think this is a very good material to pass on timecode without spending a fortune.
too many bugs ....
always led to reinstall the drivers
better to have a cracked version better than buying a similar m ****!
even the manual: 2 pages ........... is contracditoire! he said suddenly install software before, after page he says the opposite!
I believe that they are advertising for or tracktor serato? ...
Now I turn on mixvibes mackie d4 pro with no problem ..!
made of same or other sound card minimum quality crush Finger in the Nose mk2 this is a commercial success but a technical fiasco!
c is for lovers ... and yet also have the right to have fun they tear s enough hair to work! ... I'm not the only one to complain, I know a lot in personal ...
ca bug often and especially when you mix in public -> trash!
- What is so special that you like most and least?
Plus: a non-existent latency on my bike, being able to control my MP2 as vinyl ...
The least: the relative instability of the software (sometimes, he acknowledges bad decks, but once it's good, it's always good, so no worries General), the absence of real effects in the software
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
This is the final scratch-killer, but I have not tried before the other interface. I started on a HDJC first generation, I went to the BCD 2000 (but has not stopped messed up). After the BCD, I wanted something no computer that can walk without a PC: so I invested in turntables and a mixer. But being a follower of free music, I could not mix my usual pieces, so I looked for a solution, and that price is really a good surprise.
- How would you rate the quality / price?
Well, it's worth. For € 400 a pack, and if Mixvibes would offer a pro version of the software (should get a little over 160 euros for motivation), I made the effort.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes, although I confess a lack of points of comparison (was told that the price is still important when you're not pro).
