- Use a few hours
(I will return my opinion after further use if necessary)
- I have not tried other models with Traktor,
if this is the UC-33e but it is not its primary purpose.
I went a little tampering as entry-level controllers for Traktor stores.
- Compact, lightweight, USB Powered, Small footprint,
is enough (ABS housing, aluminum facade) Fader Knob and good quality, well thought out ergonomics.
The value for money seems to be very good, good to see the behavior in time, but I think the machine should work for a while!
For info on the back it says "Made in Germany by Faderfox"
Finally, the contact Faderfox was very good, I enjoyed a commercial offer they offered on their website.
So a good quality product made by a small local club and reasonable prices, I think it is a very good thing.
We clearly more for your money with the low-end controllers mass removed from all sides by all brands in the world to attract the newbie DJ (I'm still, let's be honest) ..
The DJ3 comes with a USB cable (the connector only)
a CD and a mini manual. With no CD player I do not know what's on it but I guess the same thing on their website in the Download section ie. Tsi for Traktor mapping (2.5 for me).
Traktor is launched, it imports the file and presto it works live.
If the basis functions are directly accessible enough, it will still dive into the (small) doc, or watch a tutorial video better (on their website for example), in order to understand the operation of the machine:
because of its very small size, many Button / Knob have multiple functions! All is not accessible directly in front, but the ergonomics was still very well thought out and with a little practice we found it quickly.
In addition, if something does not suit you, you can edit the mapping in Traktor controller and hop it works as you want
For example, there are front Filter - High - Mid - Low Gain but not the track. For ateindre will require SHIFT + High. I immediately changed it to put on the Filter Gain (front) and SHIFT + Filter Filter where there was nothing special. In short it is customizable at will!
We get along well, this interface is made to be comprehensive while being compact and portable. And in this context, it succeeded wonderfully!
I will return to this opinion after further use if necessary.
