    Default Need help deciding on a setup.

    I have recently been messing around with a djm 600 and a pair of cdj 800s that my friends dad let me borrow. I have decided that cds are not for me. I was wondering if i should purchase a traktor kontrol s2 or if i should buy a xsession pro mixer and a midi fighter spectra. Everyone seems to be using s2's and s4's, so i think it would be kinda of cool using something different. Your thoughts on this setup?

    So let's do this:

    What didn't you like about the CDJs and Mixer?

    What do you want to be able to do with the music you play?

    To be realistic the CDJs would be a great place to learn phrasing, EQing, Level control, Cue sytem, Song Selection...

    You said you "just messed around"...

    Are you asking what would be easier than mixing with the cdj setup that you currently have? I'd say either one, if you're using sync.

    These are my favorite. Someone comes and asks for advice. Then never revisits the thread.

    I am asking because i have to give the cdjs back to the person i was borrowing them off soon. He let me borrow them until i got the basics down.
