    Basically, the S2 has a *lot* better integration with Traktor, you'll be able to use more of Traktor in a more intuitive way. Not to mention that the S2 comes with the full version of Traktor Pro 2, the Mixtrack Pro does not.

    Oh i see.
    But I saw an ad on kijiji, and this guys selling his Mixtrack (not pro) for $100. I am thinking about getting this as my first because it is very cheap. He states that its barely used but bought in may 2010.
    If I DO buy this, what else would I need?
    I have a macbook pro 15' and nice headphones already. Thanks

    1. Quality feeling Controller - everything is "Tight" on it, and doesn't feel like cheap plastic.
    2. Native Instuments Audio2 Soundcard
    3. Traktor Pro (Full version worth $200 on its own)
    4. Longevity - you will probably outgrow the Mixtrack pretty fast and end up dropping yet more cash much sooner OR end up wanting full version DJ software.

    You'll still need a decent sound card ($100) + software. The Lite version that comes with most entry level controllers is pretty limited for anything more than a-b mixing.

    The s2 is a silly deal NOT to get right now (if there is any possibility that you can afford it). you'll have a brand new 100% warrantied "industry accepted" controller with full version of traktor rather than a cheap "looked down by pro's" controller + external sound card (taking up another valuable USB port) .. limited version software and (at best) expiring warranty.

    IMHO of course.

    DJ'ing is not really a game you want to get into "on the cheap", despite it being possible .. measure twice, cut once.
