    yeah i use an oxygen w/ uc33e... works for me.


    one thing to watch out for when you're mapping the controls is to map your Deck Play/Pause or Play/Cup to the black keys if you're using the keyboard for deck transport functions.

    when they're mapped to the white keys you can easily hit the wrong key and stop the track that's playing, or start the wrong deck if you're not watching what you're doing (drunk/high).
