    I'd stick with Rekordbox personally. I use it for DVS and way prefer it to traktor which I used for a while. Also IF you ever play out it's just easier having your playlists already in Rekordbox.

    Use in Absolute mode for most vinyl like experience.

    The reality is you're going to need to look at your laptop to choose tunes. I have the up/down arrows and left right arrows mapped so i scroll and load into Deck A / B with just those 4 buttons (very easy to set up).

    If I were you I'd get a DJM450. If you ever want to use hardware FX you don't have to touch laptop. But DJM250mk2 looks good too.

    Thanks man. I would prefer to use RB as i'm used to it.
    I'm old skool so all i want to do is scroll through, and load the tracks from the mixer without buying extra gear/boxes.
    Don't mind looking at laptop screen but prefer to select everything from the mixer itself.
    How did you map the laptop arrow keys in RB as that could be a workaround?
