    Default What should I buy next

    Hey guys,

    Just recently started to digital dj or dj in general and I'm wondering what should I get next? I only have a x session pro and a uca 202. So what do you guys think I should add to that? I was thinking about getting the connectiv soundcard for my next purchase because it comes with the torq software and a pretty decent soundcard for 200 bucks. Or should I get something with velocity pads like a nano pad or trigger finger?

    I only have virtual dj and torq le for my softwares too. So what do you guys think I should get for my next purchase? =)

    seems like a good idea if you want to stick with torq, but if you were to add the cost of other software in there as well, i think you have other card options, like the audio4.

    what os are you running? i would just check the m-audio site to see if anyone has issues with similar computers. I know back when i tried the connectiv box on the my vista box it would sometimes cause a bluescreen. they may have fixed it already, but the point is to check compatibility.

    I know a lot of users have complained about M-Audio drivers on macs, if you have OSX then that's something to consider.

    I'd say get the Audio4, but I have kind of become a whore for good sound cards
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Well I don't have a mac I just have a hp dv6000 with xp home on it. So have any of you guys hear bad news with the connectiv and xp laptops? So should I go for a soundcard first or another piece of equipment?

    soundcard is pretty crucial, but i've seen people DJ fine with the DJ IO, and it's not too expensive. other than that, i recommend SPEAKERS! good speakers are crucial to any DJ i've found, as starting off and not playing in clubs, most people don't have a good sound setup if you're playing house parties/weddings/etc. might not be your bag, but i think it's important.
