    I'd get the VCI-100 and an Audio 2 DJ soundcard and Traktor Pro.

    Hi Murd, welcome to djtt i would go for the vci-100, its a good multi purpose controller and obviously there are a few experts floating around here that can help you out with whatever you need.
    Acer E5 i7 16GB 512SSD 2TBHD ~ WIN 10 ~ TSP 2.11 ~ AUDIO 6 ~ DUAL X1s ~ DN-X1600 ~ SPECTRA ~ TWISTER ~ ATH-PRO500 MK2 ~ ZED6FX ~ AT2020

    Yo Murdy, I would def 1-up Jesse on this one.. Just got myself a VCI Arcade and been loving it to bits so multi purpose - even though it has all the basics, there's a lot of potential for creativity there..

    Go forth and practise

    if u are just starting out i would go for a cheaper solution than vci & audio whatever. at first i just had my keyboard for a year or so...then i wanted more so i decided to egt my self a cheap solution and made a lucky shot on ebay (bcd 3000 for 35€)...and after using this one for a half year i got me some other stuff. i think this was the best decision i made, because in my my eyes it doesnīt make sense to invest so much money when u/me/he/she/it are/is not knowing if it will just be a hobby for the bedroom or more...
    my 2 cents
    I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

    I actually agree with EP. If you are just starting out I'd go with a more basic option, something so you can get the hang of DJing, and build yourself into the style you want.

    You also need to decide what kind of technique you want to use.

    What kind of music do you want to spin? Do you want to scratch? Do you want to get into controllerism? Do you want plug and play or complete customization? Only after you know these things, and we do too, can we help you
    It's the FAQ. Read it.
