    Default What to get ? Macbook pro yes !! help need what spec and what controller for traktor

    no doubt it has been asked a thousand times before but i need to get back into djing and production had a few releases and been on a few djalbum compilations but i need a new setup, so i ask for a dj setup for traktor what controller i should get and what spec macbook also i like the look of having a midifighter pro what would that cost to ship to the uk.

    With regards to the mac i would wanna smash the hell out of the controller too so 4 decks or 2 decks and sample decks etc so i'm guessing not to look at a i5 model !!!

    get the macbook pro you can afford, but im able to do 3 decks with one additional deck for remixset/F1 plus FX, all while recording in traktor and get great latency with a 2.53 Intel Core2Duo MBP with 4GB RAM, plan on adding a maschine to the mix as well

    yea that would be good, try and get 8GB of RAM just for being able to run multiple programs and, if you can afford it retina display would deff help as i have the 15" (non-retina) and its managable but deffinitly wouldnt mind extra screen real estate as it starts getting cramped with having all 4 decks and FX on the screen and trying to look through your library for the next song, but i could just be spoiled from using my main desktop as my traktor machine for awhile before i bought my MBP (it had a 23" Dell Ultrasharp)

    All the current MBP range can run Traktor comfortably and will do for the forseeable future, more RAM is always a good thing and an SSD will make browsing your library flawlessly smooth.

    Or you could just not get a MBP and save yourself a ton a of money for a windows laptop with equal, if not greater power.

    i believe atm there is no traktor mapping for the DDJ SX but they are working on one, as for the midifighter or any other add on midi control surface will be easy to integrate into your setup reguardless of what controller you use

    Does windows works great with it tho , i have never owned a mac and only heard bad things about windows and traktor and adding devices and drop out , alot of messing about surely apple is alot easier even tho a little bit more expensive go on ebay and get a cheaper i5 macbook add a samsung ssd and extend the applecare and surely good to go

    I'd stay away from the 2012 13" MBP if you plan to use the audio in port.
