    Default EDIT: help w/ cdj and traktor

    Hey guys,

    Just trying to finish putting my setup together and wanted to get a decent 4 channel mixer.

    I was really looking for a s4 but i was looking through craigslist and came across a Xone XD. Its listed for $700 but i talked the guy down to $550. It also comes with serato itch but i already have traktor pro 2. I think im getting a great deal but just wanted to know what you guys think of both the price and the mixer.

    Any opinions are appreciated. Thanks.

    P.S. My setup now consists of a CDJ-350 ($270) and a CDJ-400 ($345) and a VCI-100 Arcade (which i think im going to sell now that i got the cdj's). I think i dug up some pretty ridiculous deals after all said and done....

    I think you mean an DX They're on sale for 500 dollars.

    Edit: GC did have them for that much, but appear to be sold out.

    Yeah, I've been looking around now, and can't seem to find a place where they aren't sold out. I just saw one at my local GC yesterday, but unfortunately that doesn't help you very much :/

    So i found a really good deal on a xone 42 now and i might jump on that instead. From what i understand though, there is only 1 input and 1 output for soundcard use??? is this correct? Basically what i plan on using is 2 cdjs and this xone 42. I also have an NI audio 2 which i do not think will suffice....please advise as to which is the best way to run all these together. Sorry if this is very noobish but im soo soo new to this cdj thing its killing me.

    jumped on the Xone 42. Shipping out today. Cant wait for it to get here.

    Guitar center shipped me the cdj-350 with no power cord....i was pissed. But luckily its the same cord as my cable box so i tested it out.

    Cdj-400 on the way as well. Guess its time to put the VCI-100 arcade up for sale sad day

    You can't do much with that sound card other than to feed one audio channel in from your computer, or to record right from the mixer, but that's irrelevant since you have a cdj350 and 400. Congratulations on the purchase man! I just hope you got the gray one and not the silver!
    Cheers!

    you could use your cdj's in HID mode and mix externally with the xone:42 and audio 2 (deck A and B on seperate channels).

    Im sorry i dont think im following that correctly....are you explaining this setup to be run with traktor or as a standalone setup?

    And other than HID mode, what are my other options for running the cdjs?
