Use with turntables mk2
sional in the wild, "cloub" in the apartment, radio,
my setup is the current standard (portable hp, 2 GB ram, dual core)
precision is a scratch duo version (timecode management) that I owns and not the version "duo" not that gre timecode.
the motivation of my choice is that I intended to take the card when I audio4dj unites Discoveries this package, the duet version scratch, for my case I did not need MIDI input or d have 8 inputs, 8 outputs (as with audio dj 8) because I only mix with two turntables, and this version more scratch duo also gre Controller noon (the last is plutt Rather, it is the Controller who Grente ..)
was 340 euros, a price almost half cheaper than Traktor Scratch Pro (version 4 turntables with audio dj 8) short we do not ask, you achte!
in the package, this version includes 2 duo Scratch Timecode Vinyl, 2 cd timecode, and the audio card that 4DJ mms CHARACTERISTICS possde the sound that the audio 8DJ but with less connective (no MIDI only 4 input, 4 outputs, a headphone output)
Quick and easy installation with no center-
no particular concerns
with a few scares SETTING THE latencies had the time code but just try everything and it works.
No problem encountered this morning whether or absolut mode mode Controller noon.
What I like most, the screen is touch the cot paramtrable application (you can hide some parts of the software) not assist the cot to wedge disks, you must run its ears, it is no longer has anything to look at the screen!, the album covers in the browser, the way vinyl and MIDI parameter.
but the best of the best is the sound! she works many small audio 4DJ!
LE 17 MAI 2009: RETURN OF INTENSIVE USE
Bought on 31.03.2009
4 nights in clubs and hours of use at home accessories + private with pals, no crash, no sign of slowing down, no bug.
I've never seen a software with a much stability.
As for ergonomics, I find the gnial paramtrage shortcut file, and for my case, the notch a little responsible for Traktor is not a problem since I do not look at the notch! (The laptop is on the right plates) I throw it a long time to see the end pieces and I charge with dernire track vinyl (which acts slecteur in place of the mouse ))
As a fan of vinyl and mix on turntables (MK2) I am super happy and satisfied
So I even ratchet 2 mk2 Used supplmentaires those at home (there is a price trs trs right now!), with individual flight case to carry them easy like a suitcase, for clubs / bars there would be cd decks.
These last years, having tried APRS DPIT to find an alternative to turntables during transport and dplacements club quips only turntables cd (I test the mix on turntables, cd, mix with Controller noon ... hard trs APRS mix on turntables ..)
well I can say that Traktor scracth Saved My Life DJ on turntables! and only happiness.
Turntable forever! (Last night the dj saved my life ...)

Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
The general configuration is easy?

Installation without any concern, activation is rapid and registration in line with the short questionnaire makes us feel chouchouttés, it heats in times of crisis or I slap a month of food in general archi Traktor Scratch DuoConfig simple, even bugg where it takes me an average of 2-4 minutes to reboot and reconfigure everything.
A cozy anecdotes: at night the sound card has ceased to be recconnue 5 minutes before it was my turn to play (I did the updates), it took me 3 minutes to download the latest driver from the audio4DJ (connected to WiFi on the line of the concert hall), install, restart, just time pr dj who played before me put a bit more, DJ of the future, welcome!
No inconsistency, we can just leave the cables connected without the sound card and the sound of real vinyl goes anyway! So a user can connect to Serato cables of traktor in the middle of the night to play (it happened at a party where there were DJs on vinyl, one on traktor serato and I) was just had to replace my audio sound card 4 by Rane
I opened the manual once when I had to use it with Timecode CDs, this is not the textbook that is clear is the software!
What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
The software works he correctly on this configuration?
What performance? (If quantifiable)
This software + hardware is stable?
At home: iMac 24 "2.80 and qqes Ghz, 4GB RAM
On stage: Macbook 13 "2.66 4GB RAM GhzAbsolument no worries, I had once some slowdown in afficharge monitoring playback software, but nothing changed on reading and mix. Besides, I said that I do not watch the screen on stage, usually I leave the computer plugged in the table does not make the Geek on stage <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" /> I've never seen a difference with Serato to me what are exactly the same except that traktor has a few effects and a MIDI management: more for less!
For how long have you been using it?
What thing do you like most/least about it?
Did you try many other models before getting this one?
What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
I use it for 6 months, I have easily play 20 times in the evenings and all day at home the rest of the time
I tried Serato, I was less convinced, I did not like the interface too dark, especially the price!
The value for money is simply insane: I bought some vinyls to 300euros per month, now for the same price on sites like beatport e I help what mix for ages, and especially I can finally play my songs and those of my friends!
We can prepare his playlist on the train, arrived on scene they left the computer in a corner, it turns off the screen and it is as a DJ on vinyl: to change the song we only had to return the vinyl, ideal for those who, like myself, prepare well their sets and chain fast enough
-Software can work without records or sound card (I did it with just a turn of Evolution UC33 once)
I found no less than may be that I managed to turn the lot with the computer closed (now that I think I just have not tried it yet, as it works!)
I would do without any concern that choice and I heartily recommends that they have all the DJs that I meet for 6 months (OR should I pay a hell of a promoter)
