    Default Best Mixer under $100

    Hi, so I have a friend who has been wanting to buy the Traktor Kontrol X1, some headphones, Audio 2, and a Mixer. But the one thing that keeps him from not buying it is the mixer part which exceeds his budget, we have found a lot of mixers under $100 but we don't know if they are any good. So I would need you guys to help me out with this, any opinions? Of course these mixers wouldn't be the best, but we just need one that will last and gets the job done.

    Thanks for the comments in advance -Sp1n

    For the cost of all that, your honestly better off buying a low end controller like the mixtrack pro.

    Yeah that is for a friend actually I told him but he didn't pay attention. My setup is actually including the Mixtrack Pro it's my favorite.
    Numark Mixtrack Pro / Numark RedWave headphones / Traktor Pro 2 / KRK Rokit 5s / and possibly soon a Traktor X1 do you think I should add it to my setup?

    Just explain that he's not going to be able to play or learn very well on that kind of setup.

    As to the X1, its your decision. I'm mostly serato.

    All he needs is an X1 and Audio 2.

    Do you think an X1 would be a nice addition to this setup --> Numark Mixtrack Pro / Numark RedWave headphones / Traktor Pro 2?
    And what do you mean its not true? Can he mix and play with just an X1 and an Audio 2? He needs the mixer to fulfill that setup right? or not?

    Best mixer under $100: Numark Blue Dog. It's so simple that there's almost nothing to go wrong. Sounds surprisingly good.

    He can always get a midi mixer like and Xsession pro. I think it's a great idea for him to want to use and analogue mixer and an X1. If you notice what most of the set-ups are for club DJ's using Traktor and X1's, it's a 4 channel mixer and an X1 on each side. If he practices on a 2 channel mixer he can go anywhere with his X1 and soundcard, plug right in and play.
