    Default Help me decide on a midi capable scratch mixer

    I'm trying to decide on what kind of mixer to go with for my ideal dvs setup. What I do know that I want in a setup is- 2 technics (for scratching and other turntablism routines), Traktor scratch pro 2 with the audio 10 (for ultimate connectivity), and 1 midi fighter pro (for cue hopping and beatmashing)

    What I'm looking for in a mixer is one that is midi capable, has an excellent adjustable crossfader for scratching, can be used with just the turntables for vinyl only (no dvs) or all midi without the turntables (with just the midifighter, soundcard, and traktor for portability) and have as much control over traktor as I do now with just my herc controller (lots of buttons). Does such a beast exist?

    The pioneer djm-t1 seems to be what your looking for . Traktor scratch ready , midi capabilities , can be used as a standalone mixer (no dvs only normal vinyl or cdj's...) & it can be used with traktor's internal decks .

    That said , it is still an expensive beast .

    If you want four channels the DNX1600 is mighty fine.

    I'm liking the four channels of the x1600, and would make buying the audio 10 unnecessary. I probably wouldnt use the onboard fx. How much would the upgrade to tsp2 cost?

    I'm digging the layout of the t1 as it seems to be more up my alley of full control of traktor, but I would like to be able to have volume control over the sample decks. I guess I could just map a knob as a channel fader.

    I've thought about selling my 1600 and could maybe be persuaded to bundle a scratch upgrade along with it.

    Take your time and think about what you would want for it. My job only pays minimum wage and I'll have to sell my current gear as well as some other non dj stuff before I can afford anything, so right now i'm just trying to get ideas of what's out there. If anyone has any other mixers they would recommend, feel free to mention them.

    Do you do any scratching with it at all? Just out of curiosity.

    It's not really for sale, but if someone were to send me $900 for the mixer and scratch upgrade I would probably buckle.

    Nope, actually the cross fader is mapped to delay.
