    Default New DJ in Need!!

    Hey guys, I'm a noob dj in need of some assistance.
    I just bought a Vestax Typhoon and have a few questions:

    1) The Typhoon comes with Traktor LE but I want to upgrade to a better software though i don't know which one is best to suit it. I hear Traktor Pro 2 or Traktor Pro 2 Scratch. Any suggestions?
    2) What is "mapping"?
    3) What's a .tsi file?

    Thank You sooo much

    Go read a little. I swear, everyone just wants answers these days. Google is your friend, at least put in a little effort. Go introduce yourself, or something - plan to stay a while, this isn't Yahoo! Answers for DJing (you go to serato.com for that). That said, welcome and enjoy your stay, after you go say hello to everyone, I'll help you out, but please, just put some effort into learning yourself.

    what my friend means to say is its been a rough day, there have been like 3 of these posts in the last 3 days and the search function on the forum is your friend.



    theres a lot of traktor pro 2 stuff going on today, so things are hectic.

    He doesn't know what any of that means Anthony. But I'll say it for him, you're too nice.

    What hardware do you currently have? What hardware do you want to buy? We will get to mapping and tsi files a bit later.

    There, I also corrected that for you, you're not a DJ just cause you went and bought a piece of gear, sorry. I know someone else reading this in the future was thinking it, I only said it.

    My friend, I actually know how to DJ even before i bought the gear. I just don't know what mapping and all that stuff is. I HAVE been looking it up on google but the only things that pop up are links showing HOW to map or upload .tsi files and not what they are. I appreciate your help though

    mapping is what tells traktor what pressing a certain button or turning a certain knob should do in the program.

    tsi files are settings files for traktor which contain mappings, layouts and other preference information.

    if you have the typhoon, the spin .tsi that oldfashoned made (on this forum no less) will work fantastically. if the typhoon came with LE and is traktor ready it should work right outta the box

    if not google Oldfashioneds Vestax Spin TSI. should hit you with the thread.

    hope that helps

    Thanks guys i appreciate the help

    I've read that Traktor LE is pretty limited and is unable to record, which is what's most important to me so I'm most likely going to change to a better Traktor program. Any recommendations?
