    Default wanting a new toy, what to buy?

    im just starting out, I've gotten pretty familiar with Traktor Pro using the Korg Nanopad and Nanokontrol. Im nowhere near good but I want something new. I dont want to jump into investing in a pair of CDJs and a mixer just yet. I was thinking something along the lines of the VCI-100 maybe? any recommendations? im looking for something I can learn techniques on and mess around until I feel confident enough to buy decks.

    preferably in the 0-450USD range.

    lot of vci 100 support on this forum ... best place for it ... cheaper controller such as numark mixtrack and total control are good starters to get use to the feel of a mixer, but if you have the $$ go get the vci 100

    Yeah get a VCI 100 SE if you can or a cheap 2nd hand vci and do the upgrade yourself.

    I used the VCI with the original overlay for a couple of years but the SE overlay has breathed new life into the VCI... + the new firmware = higher res
