    Default thinking about testing the waters, DVS

    hey all, im thinking of trying the DVS waters here... ive never done it, although i tried the midifighter with serato, and my buddies traktor with a controller. i want to know what you think would be a good card to get to go from 2 turntables into a mixer, into traktor or serato. any one that can do both programs. i know how they work, but know about jack s#!% when it comes to choosing one.

    any help DJTT forums?

    really a personal choice - just check out both programs and then get the soundcard to match it. Audio 4/6/8/10 will work for you depending on how many channels you want for the Traktor side

    I have just taken the dive, I have been using tsp2 anyway so I just kept on going, Serato is for more traditionalist style, not saying u can't do some first grade shit on that, I just like traktor better because it has more features and makes more sense to me.

    I'm about to buy SSL for the 3rd time.

    BTW, there is no audio interface that works with both SSL and TSP, if that's what you were asking. Go to a shop and see if they have both installed, or try to borrow shit from friends.

    In all actuality, I don't think there's really enough of a difference to truly stress about. Traktor has more hot cues and more intense midi mapping capabilities. Serato has a better GUI and actually integrates with iTunes libraries. That's about it.

    and as I recall DJTT has a couple of serato guys on board...
    I use traktor scratch duo2 (found it used cheaper), but would rather use serato for simplicity

    Yeah that's right, I can chat about Dante's Inferno, discuss the theories of John Locke, discourse on the microeconomics of international trade, investigate the kinetics of enzymes in various microenvironments, and model the price of WTI oil futures. But the best paying job I've had so far is sanitation. Thanks liberal arts.

    From my brief stint on here, I've found this to be pretty true, and as such, I'm going to recommend Traktor Scratch Duo 2.

    I'm about to go to a timecode setup with CDJs. $600 USD for Scratch Pro and $500 USD (I think) for SSL is a pretty serious investment when all you want to do is "test the waters."

    That's why I'm going with Duo. 2-deck functionality, ability to plug in external MIDI devices, and just enough effects to get you started. If I like it, I'm going to upgrade to Scratch Pro. But I can't bring myself to drop $600 on something I have no experience with.
