    Default Using a pioneer mixer with traktor pro

    Hi guys!

    In the next few monthes, i'd like to put a pioneer mixer in my setup. Why? I'd like to use the same stuff used in clubs: if I can, i'd like to play on bars/club, and use the stuff they got; But I'll have to try this stuff before.
    And effects on pioneer mixers sonds really cool.

    But the thing is, If I want to use a djm-700 (500euros for a used one), I need a soundcard: Audio 8 or 10 for use the 4 channels no?

    ->But If I want to use it, 1 X1 or 2 would be cool to use effects and loops etc of traktor. (300euros)

    -> But in this setup... there is no pitch fader! Sooooo, i'd need 2 cdj!(and CDJ are so expensive!!!!)

    So, only to use a mixer, i'd be so expensive... or Maybe there is another solution, or something I don't get? Right now I got a vci-100 arcade and audio 2 dj.

    Sounds good, what you could do is buy my 2 x cdj 1000 mk3's my djm600 black, stand and kam amp and speakers for 1700 and you will be using what they use in the club

    You don't need CDJs. X1s have sync buttons, which are just as good as a pitch fader, right? I mean…they're at least as good as a MIDI pitch fader regardless of whether you like sync or not.

    LOL I dont have 1600 euros yet!! X1 sounds really good but, if i want to make a transition between two tracks 110 bpm and 130... How can I do with just a sync button. And Without jogs i cant adjust the two tracks...

    cassius, you can map any midi controller to do whatever you want. you can make an encoder (endless knob) to be just like a jog

    yeah I know I can do it, but I think that if knobs are allready asign to something else, it's maybe there are useful for something else. I didn't ever used anything else than my VCI 100 and never touched a X1 so I don't know...

    You've got it, but consider buying a cheaper mixer if you're concerned about cash. You can always use the club's mixer, then all you have to bring is your X1, laptop. and soundcard.

    Or.... turn up to the club with your VCI and audio 2 and rock the mofo house!?

    I got a pioneer mixer... the fx are not as good as traktor. It has volume faders and a crossfader, just like your VCI.

    Just sayin'

    This is all about confidence. I can play on CDJs and a Pioneer mixer, did it for years. I'd choose my VCI SE over that set up anyday.

    You will shell out and be like "oh" it doesn't do that much.

    Hire some for the weekend and learn to use them. Save yourself a packet and will demystify

    You can map the pitch fader to a knob or even to a couple of buttons for those extreme cases.
