    Default Four Decks or Two + Sample Decks?

    What do you guys prefer? I was using sample decks but have recently been messing around with four full decks and really like it. I almost wish I could have both... I am leaning towards liking four more but definitely not comfortable enough with it yet to use in the club. (I use an S4).

    As a side note, I don't know how the Serato guys get so many sounds from so many songs so quickly in some of their mixes. Is it just fast song browsing and selection? Or pre edited songs? Or samples (I don't know how that works in Serato)? I can really only do the same when using four decks....

    Ive been using 4 decks... tried the whole 2 decks and 2 sample decks thing but im using ableton on a seperate computer now so im going to keep it at 4 decks now.

    and for your second question... it could be a little bit of both. Not sure how it happened but before i transitioned to traktor i was on serato and my monthly crooklyn clan bill was in the hundreds, now it been a few months since ive been to cc... probly because im able to be more creative on trator/ableton

    3 track decks and a sample deck. Being able to switch C or D type on the fly if needed.

    Four decks is my preference. But whatever works for you.
