    Default Suggestions for controller under $250

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a Traktor Controller which can control two decks and has at least 3-4 cue points available without out shift modifiers and can be used with an external club mixer but at the same time has to be portable enough to fit into a backpack. Any suggestions?

    MIDI Fighter Classic. There are a variety of mappings that can do what you're looking for. Check the MIDI Fighter forum. There's a sticky thread with a lot of the mappings. I have a modified version of the Instant Gratification mapping that does exactly what you're looking for.

    keep in mind that in the under 250 range youll probably need a sound card as well.

    Well I'm not too familiar with the X1. Does it control both decks split down the middle? Or does it have 2 layers 1 for deck A and another for deck B?

    its midi, so you can map it however you want.

    however, heres a couple of videos that should explain the default mapping
