    Itch 2.0

    MAJOR PROS
    - Stacked Long Waves
    - Awesome Flexible BeatGrids that are VERY easy to grid AND numbered per bar
    - Great Library Management
    - Sampler SP6 is syncable and Keylocked

    Other PROS
    - New Sync system much better than previous version
    - GUI day and night are very streamlined
    - Smart Crates
    - Post Fader Effects
    - Quality Controllers to choose from

    CONS
    - Limited FX
    - No Midi Mapping currently available (only keyboard shortcuts)
    - Can only use authorized controllers. These are great controllers, but not in the category of Xone 4D, and no controller available similar to an X1 where you could use the mixer of your choice

    Things to look Forward To
    - Possibly midi mapping for the SP6
    - Video has been mentioned
    - The Bridge, can't wait to make a demo using the mixtape function
    SSL - DJM 800 - Technic 1200's - X1 - ITCH - NS6 - VCI-300

    The autogrid detection is good as traktor for the modern songs without tempo variation ? i mean... with traktor most of the modern songs no need to adjust the grid...

    yes. just as good or better....and very easy to adjust on the fly if needed. In fact some of the controllers have buttons on them for this. I prefer the Itch grids over Traktors.

    i must agree with you on this
    i downloaded the itch 2.0 software the other day to mess around and found out how EASY it is to set beatgrids in itch!

    Alt+ SPace, hold alt, drag the grid with the mouse, adjust as needed, done, alt space again to exit grid mode, makes the traktor 2 grid system complicated in comparison!

    I am really considering getting the twitch just to test drive itch, and perhaps convert back to SSL + vinyl + the bridge if i really like it
    Setup:

    Traktor Pro 2 / S2 MK2 / X1 MK2 / Audio6 / Pioneer HDJ2000 / Westone UM3X / rMBP 13 inch 2014 (2.8 GHz) / Focal Alpha 50
