    Default Making the jump from Virtual DJ to Traktor

    Hi All,

    I'm brand new to this site and I have to say it's just like coming home being on here!

    I've had the VCi for a while now and am using it with virtual Dj. I play mainly reggae and dancehall music so never really gave any thought to beat juggling, fx and the like....untill i saw Ean's vids!

    I can totally see how those techniques could cross over quite neatly to the genre i play.

    my question is, even though Virtual Dj is capable of doing some of the more basic stuff, is it worth learning Traktor?

    I mean honestly what's all the fuss about?

    I may have stated this here before or maybe it was over at the NI forums.

    I personally find Virtual DJ as you have said - good for basics, but it's too much like a toy.
    Once you get into Traktor you realise how basic VDJ actually is.
    Although you can get a lot of plugins and skins and stuff for VDJ, Traktor is much more sophisticated in the sound department. The quality of time stretching tracks and its effects are a lot better than VDJ. Just look at how you only get 2 variables for effects for starters.

    Just make sure you learn how to beatgrid - this is how you harness the power.

    Hi im j1n...Im a midiholic and I to switched from Virtual Dj but into Ableton...For some reason I cant grasp traktor too well but I'm getting the swing of Ableton Live and liking its powers so far . One thing I do miss about Virtual Dj is the waveform over lays and the user friendly GUI, Traktor and Ableton lack in that department.
