This software coupled with its sound card and through hard Timecoded (Vinyl and CD) allows you to mix all mp3! I have a playlist of over 16,000 songs and put on USB or CD burning is still very long ... (And be constantly redo it to be always up to date!).
This software is installed on a Mac Mini or a Mac laptop where all my music is located just huge! (On a Windows PC I'm less excited ... Too much risk of crash ...).
Huge advantage: speed to find a way (on key is much longer and CD ... Must find the right one!).
I use 2 DENON DNS-3700, the Native Instruments Kontrol X1, and the Audio 4 DJ sound card (I believe it is possible to connect the MIDI turntables but I have not been able to properly configure so I dropped!).
Installation straightforward interface in English but not always easy to understand everything!
Trouble-free operation with Apple computers (I had a 2008 MacBook Pro and Mac Mini 2009, met with no crash, I've done the "small" parties with my MacBook Air 11 "2011 with no problems! My friend used with either an iMac 20 "(2008) is a Mac Mini 2011 and the result is perfect too!)
I've never seen Windows if things went as well!
How long have you been using?
Since January 2011.
Did you try many other models before buying it?
No! I did not even know it existed other.
How do you rate the quality / price?
Too expensive ... Except occasion! (200/250 euros for the model Scratch Duo ok, not more!)
With experience, you do again this choice?
Maybe not! The Denon is not recognized by default MIDI TRAKTOR, whereas they are SERATO ...
But I will not change system today now that I am "broken" on Traktor!
it is now a year and a half that I have traktor scratch pro.
what motivated me to purchase, this is the first aspect of the software that seem to me very intuitive, with great effect. Also at the same time of my purchase was a Native Istrument operation -50% on traktor scratch pro. So I did not hesitate a second.
I use traktor ESSENTIALLY to animate private party.
I also bought a x1 Kontrol to control the effects more easily.
installation is quick.
I find the aspect of handy software, with four decks, the top end, a search party to search the track you want to play ...
the manual is very comprehensive, and easy to study.
I use a mac book intel Core 2 duo 2GB RAM, 250 GB hard drive
the software runs perfectly. I've never had a bug in the evenings.
this is my first mixing software, apart from trying to VDJ, long ago.
I searched the internet quite a bit between serato and traktor, traktor for my general use was the most suitable and much cheaper.
NI has a forum in French in case of trouble.
the manual is clear and well done.
I use a macbook pro 2.4 ghz i5 with 4GB ram and sound card as a denon dnx-1600 with a time code in Kontrol X1.
the software is very stable
I use it for two years, I have seen changes in the software, which improves and is more complete.
I tried several software competitors like vdj mix and vibe that I find not only the level of traktor.
I would do without this choice problem traktor is very powerful.
What characteristics have motivated your choice? it is above that can be used four decks, effects, and quite a few options that competitors have not.
For what purpose? I use it to mix in a club and it 2 times a week and also no little to my mixtape.
What is your config (Motherboard / CPU / RAM / Disk ,...)? I have a asus X72J 4GB of ram windows 7 and it runs very well.
Which instruments and systems (console, preamp, DTD ...) you use it and how connections? ... I use with 2 denon dns-3700 and a DJM800 kontroleur X1.
Implementation: installation gallery but rather by dint of watching video on youtube and see Audiofanzine forum, you get there.
The software works well and is very stable.
How long have you use it? I use it for more than 1 year
Have you tried many other models before buying it? I try virtual dj, serato SL1 and SL3 and mixvibes.
What is so special that you like most? 4 deck, and the effects, recording loops cue, the sync, the beat grid.
What is so special that you like the least? research of music that make this dossier.exemple by: david guetta house and in case new. you must go to one of two files for trouver.dommage that we can not find on search as a hard drive.
How would you rate the quality / price? bon.moins very expensive as serato and I see as good is more efficient and more creative than serato.
With experience, you do again this choice? Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes ....
