Been using the S4 since it came out, and I've been very happy with it. But I've been getting into scratching a lot more than I used to, and the S4's tiny little wheels just don't work for that as well as I'd like. I don't even care for the Pioneer wheels. But when I hung around a Guitar center for awhile, I tried an NS7 and despite not liking Serato much, I found scratching to be way easier, and way better sounding, when performed on a motorized platter. Since then I've messed around with some friends' timecode setups, experimented a bit on a Denon 3900 (with the 10inch motorized platter)...
But here's the thing. I want to stick with Traktor. I like the software, I like my S4 and the workflow it has. All I want to do is add the motorized/vinyl component to it. And honestly, I didn't feel much of a difference from DVS to motorized CDJ, I could work well with either.
What equipment and setup do you all think is easiest for this? I can't seem to find a clear answer if the Denon 3900 supports Traktor natively, or if I'd have to use a timecode CD & Traktor Scratch. I know there's a motorized Stanton controller around someplace too... not sure if anyone has any experience using that.
What do you think?
