<p class="bbcode-cite">Quote: <span>- How long have you been using it?</span>

I've been using this controller for one week

<p class="bbcode-cite">Quote: <span>- Which feature do you like the most / the least?</span>

Pros:

- Looks good

- Provides all necessary functions

Cons:

- Difficult to install under Vista.

- No Midi file for compatibility with other software (Serato, Traktor, Mixvibes, Deckadence, Virtual DJ, etc.) except for the proprietary Pioneer DJS software.

- Thus the button LEDs and the display are inactive and the controller becomes very basic...

DJS review (provided with the SEP-C1 and only fully compatible software):

Among all current mixing programs, it's the less ergonomic solution. But we don't care since everything can be controlled via the controller.

The program GUI doesn't match the hardware (It looks awful).

The settings menu is very poor compared with the best...

You'll have program crashes if you use a Mixvibes U46DJ card like me (I needed two days to detect the problem.

<p class="bbcode-cite">Quote: <span>- How would you rate its value for money?</span>

Pioneer uses the integrated solution strategy (software package + controller) to sell the product at a high price. It's too expensive especially since the device doesn't have an internal sound card.
