    Default Best DJ Equipment for Under $350

    Hi, Im new to the forums,
    I have been DJing with Traktor for about a year, using a numeric keypad an iTouch, Maschine and a M adio axiom pro keyboard and decided it time to finally pay for a solid 4 channel dj mixer (under about $350).

    I have been looking at the following options

    1. Madio XSession pro

    2. Buying a used ipad running touch OSC and running a custom 4 channel mixer page

    3. using custom mapping and turning the X1 to a 2 channel mixer +hotcues and stuff


    Anyways im not completely set on a 4 channel mixer, because I dont know how my dj style will change in the future. Im just looking for something that feels a little more natural and that doesn't require me to be constantly going on computer tweaking volume faders loop recorder, crossfader.etc


    Any suggestions will be helpful thanks in advance!

    2nd hand numark omni (only a 2 channel mixer but has a built in soundcard)
    or an X1. (I believe it comes with traktor pro2)

    a quick question. how do you have traktor s4 software without the actual s4?

    @keithace - no brownie points for you, as you had some advice in this same old newbies post

    Hardware over TouchOSC any day. Love the app, but real knobs require less touch precision.
