    I owned Torq for a few months, then Serato for a few years, then a few months ago I switched to Traktor.

    What I liked about Serato is that it was rock solid. What it did, it did well. I had no issues with any of its features and it ran perfectly on my fairly weak spec Windows laptop. Negatives - No FLAC support (at the time - it has it now), and when scratching, it wasn't great at handling very slow record movements.

    Traktor offers more potential and has more features, but I've found a few bugs in the software and reporting them to Native Instruments has been a painful process. I find that it's nowhere near as good as Serato at automatically analysing the BPM of tracks and the grid is usually way off - bear in mind that I'm not playing EDM though (Traktor seems fine with music where there's a very steady kick thumping away like a heartbeat). When key lock is off, I think it performs better than Serato for scratching. When key lock is on, it's worse. Certain actions will hammer the resources of my computer, which is a high end machine with a Core i7 3770K, 16GB of RAM, SSD etc.

    Overall, for my needs, I have to give the nod to Serato. I've had buyer's remorse about Traktor since the day I bought it and I still have it now. Perhaps that was made worse by the fact that Traktor 2.5 came out shortly after I bought it - which is a major upgrade - and that bugs need to be ironed out, but still, I can only comment based on my experience. I'm currently saving for a Rane 62 and I will dump Traktor when I get that, but software updates may make Traktor much better (or Serato worse!), so my opinion is certainly not set in stone.

    That's like asking broom or cheese. There is no context for the question.

    Are you asking witch is better?

    Are you asking what each of us use?

    Are you asking which costs more?

    Are you asking which would be better for making pizza?

    What exactly would you like to find out?

    Depends,
    As you know, I use serato because serarto is free, and really brings out the best of the classic turntablism.
    However, I do have a love for Traktor's remix capabilities.
    IMO Serato is for turnabalists
    and traktor is for controllerists.
