    Default Mini Controllers

    Hey,

    Does anyone know of good mini / space saving controllers.

    I found these on-line and thought they looked kind of cool and wanted to know if anyone has any comments about "DJ Tech Pro" stuff or any other cool controllers:

    I own a Novation Nocturn which is pretty cool too.

    I found these and I thought they'd be cool to have for practising at home or doing demos.

    I have a baby on the way so making space for baby stuff Decks are going down to my dad so I'll only be using DVS when I play out, but would like something kewl to play around with if I get some spare time.

    Also I'm a long time torq user. I haven't seen much Torq support so I thought I'd put it out there in case anyone asks.

    Cheers
    Nelson

    Hi

    I own the cdj 101 and djm 101. both are great. cdj 101 got 14bit resolution on pitch fader and the wheels which are metal and fairly heavy are just awsome(no problem beatmatching). the mixer is spot on and does exactley what you need it to do, maybe a litlle plasticky but still good. the traktor tsi they provide works great to. I'm sure you could map them easily with torq.

    yeah dj tech stuff does not get much love on this forum, from the few products i've come across, they were good for value.

    hope that helps
    It's not the gear. It's how you use it.

    Yeah, that's great thanks.

    I wasn't expecting major quality because from the pricing they seem fairly cheap (big plus for me at the moment ). But if the jogs feel strong that's great news.

    I had read about the 14bit faders. I'll have to look into how to get that working in Torq. That would be very good to have. Not a big deal as I've played with the nocturn and changed the pitch to +/- 4 and that was pretty accurate but doesn't give much room for some tracks that are a little slower or faster...

    Thanks for the reply. I'll be looking into those in the new year once the decks are gone...

    when you say they have a 14bit midi res, that sounds good for this price. but i haven't ever touched one with my own fingers so i don't know what i can say about the material/feeling.

    i was considering the cdj101 besides the denon sc2000 and NI x1, and took then the X1 because NI had an offer with an free traktor2PRO, ....

    now i recognized that i don't like djing without jogwheel (because i am too lazy to grid all my songs proper xD) and search for someone who want's to take my X1 with the traktor2LE it came with so i have the money to buy an SC2000 and can keep the free traktor2pro that came with the X1 ;D (since it came with an t2LE and another t2pro license ;D)

    I use a x1 with 2x cdj 101 and xone 22 mixer now and it's a great combination. was going to invest in some pioneer cdj's and time code but don't see the point now. With the denon it can be a little frustrating to switch between the 2layers. i had an eks otus before so experienced that. my work flow is now much smoother.

    You could also have a look at the Faderfox controllers, these are quite small as well and of quite good quality as well afaik
