    Default CDJs, Laptop Djing with Rekordbox Performance and B2B sets with Serato

    Hey guys,

    I have an XDJRX and am trying to learn to DJ with a laptop more as the sets I play are long and require fast mixing and a wide variety of music.

    I have some questions in regards to setting up on CDJS with my laptop in a club and how things work with B2B sets, particularly if the other DJ is using Serato.

    1. Do I need anything like a serato box to set up with Rekordbox performance on 2x CDJs + DJM2000/DJM 900 Mixer? Do I just take 2 USB B cables and plug them in? I'm really confused as to how it works off the bat.

    2. If the other DJ is using Serato and I am using Rekordbox, does going B2B still work or are there any issues from this?

    3. Which mode of Rekordbox performance is best, is HID the standard?

    4. Do all effects still work directly through the mixer with Rekordbox performance? With my XDJRX they are sort of out of sync.

    Thank you very much

    Just plug your laptop (via ethernet) into the switch that the c/xdj's are connected to at the venue and use link mode

    It's literally that simple? no USB B, no box etc. needed? What 'switch' do you mean? The mixer? Am I being stupid in thinking that both cdjs ethernet ports will be in use for link. C

    Thanks

    The network switch. Itll be the little box that all the ethernet cables from the C/XDJ's are plugged into.
