    Default TORQ or SSL

    Hey guys, Im deciding between software, and would like to know the pros and cons of each and which you think i should go with. Torq is more in my price range BTW. Thanks

    dont take this the wrong way, but these are two completely different systems.

    go read up on the torq-dj and then scratch live forums then come back and ask specifics.

    I used to used Torq and knew the update was coming, but even after it arrived not much changed. I found it slow, awkward and glitchy. Things are much simpler and far more customisable with other programs. I wouldn't go back to Torq again.

    As said above..I think the big two DVS systems are Serato and next in line is Traktor Scratch...I would seriously give traktor scratch a good thought.

    Well actually if Natives instruments claim that they have gotten rid of sticker slipping are true (which to my best knowledge Serato still has hasnt) - id say Traktor is the better of the two DVS systems - this is taking it from a purely digital vinyl perspective without factoring in any other features within the program. Thats not to say Serato sucks either, the competition is pretty tight.

    One problem though is the keylocking system isnt working right at the moment and the fix is due in the 1.3 update.

    I used to have SSL, sold it for Traktor Scratch and was a good move.
    Traktor Scratch system: 4 stereo outs / SSL has 2. SSL has only 2 decks, TPro 4.
    Traktor has FX , SSL none..Traktor customizable/ SSL not. Traktor Audio 8 can be ASIO on Mac or PC. ..man the list goes on. SSL is good for simple hip hop setups who like to scratch..and that is Serato's main thing..Traktor Pro 1.03 should be killer.
