    Default Numark NS6 with Traktor

    After reading the DJTT review on the NS6, It made me no longer want the controller because it said that it wasn't good with traktor. Is this True? I need a controller that can control virtual DJ and traktor. The only other alternative I see to this is the DDJ-T1 from Pioneer. So I ask, has anyone used the NS6 with traktor and compared it to serato itch recently to see if it was any good?

    Hmm Denon DN-MC6000 comes to mind. Did you consider that? Also the upcoming VCI-400.

    if youre going to go with an ns6 (or really any itch hardware) you might as well use itch. if thats not a good option for you - you might as well just get a different controller.

    The NS6 is a great piece of hardware but as long as the Serato rift between Scratch Live and Itch exists I feel that both software suites are inferior to a fully integrated solution like Traktor. Don't compromise on the controller computer link, if you wanna run Traktor now get an S4 or MC6000(I prefer the S4) or wait for the VCI400. That is going to be a killer piece of kit, I imagine...

    the reason i don;t want an s4 is because i also use virtual DJ and there isnt any support for the s4 last time i checked. I am between the ddj-t1 and the ns6. The reaason I want to know about the ns6 is becuase the jog wheels are better than ddj-t1

    Why can't you just map the S4 in VDJ if you really wanna use it?

    Personally I don't see why would want to use the S4 without Traktor and the NS6 without itch, they work so well with their intended software.
