So I've been an S4 owner for the past six months, and while I love the functionality of it and I've played a lot of great bookings with it, it's not doing it for me anymore. I don't like the look/feel of the little jogwheels, and the overall feel of "controllerism," vs. "deejaying."
I learned on CDJs and I REALLY want to go back to them while keeping the functionality of Traktor, but I'm basically a traveling rave/concert DJ at this point, and I'm faced with a variety of different CDJ setups with every booking. I'm usually faced with CDJ1000's or above, but I'll occasionally be faced with the 800's, never anything lower.
My question to all of you, is how is Traktor's stability on most Pioneer CDJ's? I know with Serato I was able to jump around from club to club, plugin to every CDJ no problem and be good, but I've heard mixed things about bringing an Audio 10 around from place to place and using that on a bunch of different setups.
Seeing my BPM's to a decimal place is very important to me, and I'm not sure if the pitch bend that is built in to the CDJ will manipulate it on screen in Traktor. This and having native integration for looping is important, so I can just hit the loop buttons on a CDJ and have it control synched loops from within Traktor.
I also really like hitting my cue button a ridiculous amount of times, so having quick response is also essential. I know in Serato, even in absolute mode, the latency is too much for me and I don't even both with using it. Can anyone help me answer these questions? I gotta get off this controller...
I've tried looking around for this answer but can't find anything...sorry if it has been answered before but I've had on luck in finding it.
From what I understand, I can bring an X1 controller with me to control all the effects and other doo-dad's of Traktor that the CDJs themselves will not.
All help is appreciated and welcome!
