    Default Total noob..

    Alright fellas, great site you got going here. As the title suggests im basically a total beginner to the dj side of music. Ive been making eletronic music for a bout 3 years now using cubase and reason with my oxygen8v2 and using my toneport ux2 as the sound card but im now really interested in making mixes and playing parties and whatnot.

    Ive just started messing round with traktor pro but i dont really though what im doing. So basically i was wondering if people could point me in the direction of how to get started? whats a decent mixer to get? How could i encoorperate my oxygen into things? Just anything you think i should know.

    Cheers guys

    Read the Traktor manual followed by reading the Traktor midi reference guide http://www.traktorbible.com/pages/mi...html#Downloads

    Probably the quickest way to get you started would be to get a VCI-100 because there is just so much information around this site that will help you get off the ground faster than you would if you bought anything else.

    i would love a vci 100 man but somehow the pocket disagrees at this moment. Is there anything a little cheaper that might do a similar job?

    Nope i dont think so - there are some cheap ones out there but they arnt that crash hot. Everyones just tries to impersonate the VCI-100 and usually fails epicly, the funny thing is it wouldnt be that hard to make something better than the VCI, its just that their r&d teams leave something to be desired.

    the BCD isnt that crash hot - Wuz just gave his away to his mate and got himself a VCI-100, i think that says it all.
