    Default Incorporating MP3 to current Vinyl Setup

    First post here hoping to get some advice on how I can incorporate mixing MP3's with my current setup

    I am currently using the following

    Pioneer DJM-850
    2 Technics 1200's

    I love vinyl but purchasing and mixing vinyl only is not affordable for me right now and I would like to start mixing MP3's. I would want to use MP3's in my sets while still using vinyl of course. What would you guys recommend me using to make this happen. Not entirely sure I can use Traktor and the 1200's timecoded vinyls while still using the vinyls I already have. The cheapest option would be best until I have enough for a CDJ that allows me to use USB. I'm thinking a CDJ is the only option but I am not overly familiar with some of the software available now so I may be wrong.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    You can easily use Traktor and mix and match timecode with regular vinyl as you have the perfect mixer for the job. All you do is flick the input switch from USB to Phono.

    What you need to do is buy the Software and Timecode Kit.

    Why don't you just switch to exclusively DVS? Or run time code on one side with real vinyl on the other?

    I think switching between the DVS vinyl and actual vinyl might be a pita, but I'm pretty sure it is doable.

    No pain at all with a DJM 850. Like I said, you just change the input switch.
