    Default Should I wait?

    So I've got a deposit down on a DDJ-SX and have done for some time now. I've been told it will be sometime in March before the shop get them in.

    I was also looking at the VCi-400 before laying my deposit down. So my question is should I continue to wait for the DDJ-SX or will the VCi-400 be just as good (or better). Thoughts from people who have tried both would be greatly appreciated.

    I think it depends on your choice of software. Serato? Go for sx. Traktor? Go for vci or NI. The controllers are always made with a particular software in mind and I think that makes a difference. Sure you can midi map to your preference but I always want the best that will max me out on the software. Good luck man!

    Thanks man. Well I don't really have a strong preference with software as I have Traktor Pro already but used Serato with my Twitch when I owned one. Both have their plus and negative points. Damn decisions.

    I'd say the Pio.
    I had a VCI 400 and it ws really good - build quality was excellent, sound card was fine - but the jog mapping in Traktor is just the same as any other controller except NI's own.
    The vid's of the DDJ-SX using Serato look amazing - I haven't tried one though so can't say for sure but it's the one I'd choose.

    Thanks Nicky. Yeah I think I'm going to wait for the Pio just to be on the safe side.

    ^lol

    I agree with the meh VCI jog resolution. Depending on your style this would matter or not.

    well vci 400 will support serato soon too. The only downside prob that you have to pay separate price for the software since it is not bundled with the 400

    On the Serato website it says Winter 2013 before it's available for the the vci400. Not wishing to wait that long.
