    Default Help with setup ideas!!

    I recently had some extra dough come in and I am ready to invest in some new dj equipment. My budget is around 700-800 $. I want to be able to do some live stuff and fx and all that jazz. My ideas so far consist of:
    S2 w/ midi fighter
    S2 w/ F1
    X1 w/ 2x F1
    All ideas/ feedback/opinions appreciated!!!!!
    thank you!!!

    Gotta give a bit more info on what you wanna do, man...

    Also what you already have, especially since none of those have a sound card.

    Also, how familiar you are with mapping, and if you have any interest in doing any edits to your mapping.

    Although if you're even thinking about a midi fighter, than you know enough that you'd definitely be served better by a better all-in one controller than the S2.

    I recently purchased two midi fighters (150au!) to accompany my lonely mixtrack pro. Too be honest, it is an amazing setup.

    I use my mixtrack to setup and eq my track, the big ol' jogs to beatmatch. Atm, I have about 22 buttons being unused; havn't needed to use them yet really.

    My left Midi Fighter is setup in 4 banks mode with the instant grat. mapping. My right Midi Fighter is based on the cue point mapping a fellow uploaded here. It has 7 cue points per deck, the 8th button will delete any given point by pressing 8+x point. (Work in progress)

    So yeah. Sorry for the life story, but hopefully you have an idea of what you can achieve with a similar layout. I would imagine if you are a whiz at mapping effects chains, the F1 would be really good. (see armyofone) But I am extremely happy with my setup as of now. When I eventually want to do more, the only thing I would give up would be the Mixtrack. Simply for a 4 channel mixer methinks!

    I dig that setup! I'm looking at doing something very similar. I'm planning on switching all my gear out for a pair of midi fighters that I'm planning on having perfectly mirrored. Left for Decks A+C and right for decks B+D, with just a 4 channel mixer in the middle. Then I can hook up turntables or CDJs, depending on what the booth has, for beatmatching.

    I really want to do a lot of fx while still using the remix decks of traktor. currently i have nothing. I have been dj ing for almost a year using just the computer, and it absolutely sucks. like i said my budget is 700-800$

    An S2 and Midifighter is a great start.

    How can the machine hardware be used with traktor?

    It works as a standard midi controller... Honestly I have no idea why anyone uses them for anything but the maschine software... there are far better and cheaper pad controllers.


    Seriously though.... Google....
