I've been using it for two months.

- I like:

* the most: accuracy of the sensitive joggle / the quality in ASIO mode

* the least: pitch fader (too soft and without 0% tap).

- Gear I tested before:

* Hercules DJ-console, first generation: a toy! Not accurate, plastic knobs, high latency, 2 breakdowns in 2 years, too small, etc. Only advantage: very comprehensive connections, perfect for multimedia applications.

* Pioneer CDJ-200: Looks great but it's not sensitive. The vinyl feel is better with higher and more expensive models: cdj-800 and cdj-1000

* Denon...…

* Denon dpdj-151 turntable: good turntable...

* Vestax pdx-d3 turntable: a jewel...

- Value for money

I bought them new and got a very nice price.

- Based on my experience, I would buy them again. I had been looking for something like this ever since the first Dj-Console came out and disappointed me... I use them with a SMAC PRO 40. It's a great setup to get an authentic mixing feel.

I don't own this product but I used it a while with Traktor on a Macintosh.
The controller has a slick look and it is very compact yet all functions are easily accessible.
I didn't have any handling problems in spite of my thick fingers.

The pros: small price, compatibility with lots of software, sound card and overall quality (in spite of the plastic look).
Another advantage is the possibility to mix and use the controller as an interface with a virtual turntable. In this case it has the same function as a CD player or a turntable.
Simply connect the EKS to the PC and connect the CD player and the turntable into the line...…

Simply connect the EKS to the PC and connect the CD player and the turntable into the line inputs of the controller.

The pitch is big enough but it doesn't feel as strong as the one on the Technics SL-12*0 for example.

The jog wheel is big enough and also good quality, but I think it is too close to the gray scratch control and the pitch bend control.
It can lead to unwanted mistakes if you don't get used to the software.

Generally speaking it's a very good controller in spite of its weaknesses which just require some time to adapt.
I sincerely recommend this controller.

The worst shit

EKS XP5Published on 10/12/13 at 07:34
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
EKS: TO AVOID ABSOLUTELY!
If the material is not bad, the company EKS offers no specific drivers or making it all work. Only solution for example PC is having a re-install Windows XP and this time the simultaneous use of two XP5 are rowing in the computer possible, even with a last generation config. The use of USB ports is not optimized configuration XP5 requires an advanced degree at MIT ...

Height of all, just read the forums of the web to understand that in addition to not give anything to its customers EKS does not deign to respond to complaints and requests for assistance.

Lamentable and most perfect example of what not or do not buy.
