I have only ever used the Traktor S4\Traktor Pro for my DJing which I use for my gig's. My S4 is starting to show it's age with some of the hot cue buttons needing a sledge hammer to make them work, so it's time for an upgrade, but to what? I've been approached by a couple of clubs to dj for them using their Pioneer equipment but I've declined as I am not confident I know how to use the gear. I've never used a cdj!
Would the Pioneer DDJ-SX help me over come this problem?
The thing I love about the S4 is that it's built around the software, Pioneer have done a similar thing with Serato.
I know Pioneer have an official tsi for the SX so I could still use Traktor Pro but it still not the same as having the controller matching the software?
Is this the time to switch to Serato? Is it now as good\better then Traktor?
My budget is around £1000
Any advice greatly received
