    I'd go for battle style, you can easily pitch bend, dropping your needle is more accurate (in my opinion) and you can scratch and beatjuggle better

    because of space i have them turned BM
    but i learned with them in standard mode.
    it takes some getting used to when mixing and having to reach over everything to use the pitch faders.

    at first it was a pain BUT now I actually prefer

    Battle Style, if only because I don't have space.

    And what's all this nonsense with not using the pitchfader? Do you guys play a constant BPM for a whole set or what? I need to use the pitchfader to beatmatch between transitions that purposefully change tempo so I can switch from dance to rap and vice-versa. Technically I could just tap tempo and auto-sync but that's not as much fun as potentially trainwrecking my sets.

    Real DJs don't use the pitch fader, they manually push the track to the correct tempo.
