    Default Why no Technics SL-DZ1200's? And Question about Numark NDX 800's

    The standard is obviously pio cdjs... it seems these never got recognized from the research I've done. Does anyone use these?

    I'm looking for something to learn to disconnect myself from my laptop a bit, experiment with some scratching.

    I've also looked into the numark ndx 800's. I've seen midi mappings for all four decks to one cdj... but at that point do you lose timecoding? I guess I don't understand quite how that works. I understand the technics have no midi capability.

    I'm running tsp with an audio 8dj, and a ddm4000 with the stock fader. Any and all advice appreciated!

    If you want to do scratching, go for TTs, not CDJs (but maybe you have those already?)

    And the reason nobody uses the Technics CD deck is because... It kinda sucked, or so I hear.

    Default Dz1200

    I guess they suck as MP3 players without the new firmware. They work excellent with Serato timecode.

    ^ Never? You may like it better than 1200s. It's my mixtape setup of choice.

    If your serious about scratching, it might be worth investing in an Innofader. If your not keen on investing 100 or so, Behringer do an optical contact free "Infinium" crossfader for around 40. It is a direct replacement for the crossfader in the DDM, and takes about 5 minutes to install. It is fully adjustable to suit your tension requirements, and keeps the full MIDI functionality, curve adjustment and transform as the standard fader.

    The Pro X Fade ain't bad either
