    Default Pioneer DDJ-T1

    Am considering this perhaps as a huge blowout! Is it any good? Seen this deal:

    Though I'm between this and the much cheaper Twitch. Tried the S4 recently and didn't really like it for some reason

    Anyone got anything to say on the Pioneer unit?

    I'm only a couple of hours in, & I haven't powered it up to a pair of speakers yet. ....but on first impressions, you'd love Twitch!!

    I can't emphasise enough how much I dislike the jogs on the T1. Nor can I sufficiently stress how excited I am about getting my twitch!

    As far as I'm aware you get 'Traktor Pro Pioneer Edition' which is a 4 deck version of the old Traktor Duo. But Bunford already has TP2 so I guess that doesn't really matter.

    A friend of mine has one of these and said that he got a free upgrade to Pioneer Edition v2 so not all is lost. He's also VERY happy with the T1, granted he's less controllerist and more of a CDJ guy, but still he's very happy with his T1 and how it works and performs.

    If you're deciding between this and things like Twitch/S4, I'd say get the T1 if you're used to using CDJ's and want to keep that kind of feel with your DJ setup without going too crazy. Twitch and the S4 are more geared towards controllerists and that style of DJ'ing, so if that's what you're into then you'll want to go this route instead of with the T1.

    I'd say the NS6 is a much nicer 4 deck controller, and it has a built in analogue mixer and ITCH certification.

    True, but I already have a licensed TP2 anyway.

    I think I've decided to go for the Twitch. Just need to find somewhere in the UK with a coupon deal at the moment, even if it's just to get a tiny bit of money off it!
