    Default New dj...

    Hello,

    So I recently jumped into the DJ world as a break from production and as a way to change my workflow. I have two stanton T80's which were sitting in boxes from like 6 years ago. I went out and bought a Numark X6, Traktor scratch, Kontrol x1, and some new shure carts. (I had a bit of extra cash and it was killing me knowing my t80's were sitting in boxes)

    So where do I start? Are there any good youtube videos for getting myself bootstrapped in how to use traktor? I figured out the basics, but I find myself doing things unintentionally which is due clearly to my lack of understanding of all the features of traktor.

    I haven't been able to find much information for using the timecoded vinyl as a controller. [edit: more productively, I have it working fine]

    Also what are the major differences between the traktor standard (what ever comes with traktor scratch) and traktor pro? It's like $70 for me to upgrade to pro (and apparently I can get a free upgrade but I haven't got the email yet)

    Thanks!

    VSTs aren't supported within Traktor BUT you can route Traktor FX send/return to a third party software VST host. Check Traktor's preference un Effect and Audio input and output routing.
