    Default Traktor Pro vs TSP

    I was just curious to know if the only difference between the two is that Traktor Pro doesn't come with timecoded CD's or Vinyl and TSP does...does Pro support timecode if you buy the Vintl separately? Cause I'm gonna be using CDJ's in advanced HID mode without timecode and I noticed that the Traktor Pro comes with an Audio 2 interface at a pretty nice price. I appreciate all responses. Thanks!

    To use timecode you need at least two things
    1) Scratch Certified audio interface, controller OR mixer
    2) a Scratch license

    Traktor Pro will work with HID but not with Timecode.

    the difference is the timecode plugin. it's exclusive to TSP.

    I'm thinking the best option is to get the TSP software w/timecoded CD's and vinyl which is $119. I'll be using a DJM-900 so no need for the audio interface at home unless a venue isn't packing a 900, in that case I'll prob just look for a second-hand audio interface off of ebay. Does anyone see any potential problems with this method?

    Not sure if you need a prior version of Traktor to use that or not. I just got that, but I already owned TP2.5 and a Denon DN-X1700 (Scratch-Certified Mixer), so I didn't have to buy anything additional.

    It's no longer an upgrade package, it comes with a full version of scratch pro now.

    Wow, I didn't realize that. That sounds like the plan to me. Audio 8's go for about $250, but if you're patient you can get one in the $200 range.
