    Default Traktor Pro to Traktor Scratch Pro 2... On a BUDGET

    So I am about to get my grimey little fingers on a free set of Stanton turntables! But I only have Traktor Pro 1 a M-Audio Fast Track Pro and a Numark Stealth Control. What would be the cheapest way to get those tables running through Traktor Scratch Pro 2? I am on a serious budget but I realllyyyy want some vinyl. What is the cheapest interface I could use? Cant seem to find any audio 4s online, sure those would be cheaper. And would there be anyway I could still use my stealth control instead of getting a new mixer?

    And is there some kind of cross grade from Traktor pro to traktor scratch pro 2? I shouldnt have to buy the software all over again.

    Sorry, sh** load of questions but this noob appreciates the guidance.

    Buy a mixer. Any cheap 2nd 2 channel mixer. Then look into mixx. Think it's free open source Dj software that you can use as DVS with any soundcard

    Edit: looking at the features you shouldn't even need a mixer http://www.mixxx.org/features.php

    Im pretty partial to traktor. Im fascinated by controllerism, just thought having that vinyl touch combined with controllers would be sweet. Looks like it will have to wait. Probably just upgrade to Pro 2 and get a launch pad for now

    The easiest and cheapest right now if you have to use traktor is to get the duo scratch combo.

    TA6 + traktor scratch duo.

    But honestly I would go with the MIXXX option if I was on a budget. it is a good program.

    You can use everything you already got. Just need some timecode vinyl and you can use any! Serato tc vinyl works with it.

    Read the features link inposted and look into it properly

    It's decent bit of kit if youre on a budget

    The cheapest way is to find a used TS Duo combo with an Audio 4. There is no legal way to use anything but NI sound cards or certified mixers with Scratch.
