    Default Need advice on a second dj/midi controller to use in addition to BCD3000 w/ Traktor

    Hi All,

    I hope this is the right area of the forums to ask this question.

    I'm running a Macbook OS 10.6.2, Traktor 3 LE, & BCD3000. This is my first digital setup. I'm stepping up to Traktor Pro soon and need some advice.

    I'm hoping it will be possible to integrate another controller into my setup. I actually like the BCD3000 except for the fact that I have to touch the macbook to load tracks into the decks. I'd like to know if it would be possible to get another controller such as Traktor X1 basically to get the functionality of loading tracks into the decks?

    I hope that makes sense. Sorry in advance, I'm a total digital dj newb.

    Thanks,

    midiot aka eddie

    if you're question is whether or not you can use a second USB MIDI controller, yes. You are only limited by your USB ports.

    Though, if you're going to spend the money on the X1, or ANY MIDI controller, I think it would make sense to upgrade to TPro
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    I made the BCD3000 - VCI100 SE jump and believe me, it's the best thing I've ever done. It's not cheap but it's well worth it

    and learn about midi modifiers, you can extend the usefulness of your bcd by using midi modifiers to make dual uses for knobs/faders/buttons.

    I think traktor pro + bcd + use of midi modifiers is a better bang for buck then le + bcd + a second controller.

    good luck

    welcome to the forums, love the forumname lol
