They’re both fine.
Phil which software would you suggest….Traktor or Virtual DJ? Which one do you think will be better to start of DJing with?
No, you just need to set up your audio routing correctly, and maker sure your speakers are plugged into your S2.
I just brought my Traktor Kontrol and i have to thank you for presenting these videos i am a dj from the 80s and i just got back into after so many years i am currently having cue problems as i cannot hear the music in my headphones as i have a computer hooked up to my six speaker system, should i invest on getting direct speakers. Thanks
These videos are really great and helpful!
This help a lot thanks
Wow this guy really knows his stuff . I keep watching his videos
Agree completely. Djing is not about the gear, it’s about the skills (as we always try and reinforce).
I bought my latest controller the pioneer T1 second hand from A guy who made the usual mistake that A lot of people make,they buy a top of the line controller and finding themselves way over their heads.
I advise start simple see how it goes,If you find that D.jing is for you then you can go out and buy better gear and you will know what you want and what suits you.
Most of all it’s easier to sell cheaper controllers than the expensive ones and you will not loose as much on the sale.
*small and such
Can you use the dj2go for iPad on the djay app? or is that another controller similar to that, thats sampl
Great stuff Phil, sounds like you are saying a good workman never blames his tools.
Yes, it’s a good beginners’ controller.
Do you think Numark mix track pro is a good starter for beginners?
get the vms4 better soundcard and quality i use mine as a 2 deck and its much better only 100 bucks more than the vms2 on amazon
Go to djtips DOT co SLASH free and grab our free guide.
I guess it’s down to the VDJ mapping.
I wanted to ask your opinion between the American Audio VMS2 or the Reloop Mixage IE? Which one do you believe i should buy?
Hi There. Quick Question. Just got a pair of Numark V7′s. Im running them with Virtual DJ Pro 7. I noticed that when I use the Bleep Function, the track does in fact spin backwards, but when i release it then instead of going back to the current position on the track it just starts playing from where i first used the bleep which really kind of defies the point of using bleep. Is there an option or is it a known issue with VDJ? Thanks Again . .
@ArRaGaming I have the numark n4! And in my opinion it’s much better as the traktor s2! So buy the n4 it have 4 channels and a lot of effects and nice stuff and the traktor has just 2 channels so… And you can use the n4 as analogic mixer and the s2 not.
(sorry for my bad english i’m Dutch)
@DigitalDJTips @DigitalDJTips two pioneer CDJ 350′s and a DJM T1
What, CDJs? We are a software DJ site so we prefer using DJ software over old school DJing with CDJs, so we’re always going to say go down that route.
hi i’m a bit past the beginer stage planning to get CDJ’s would u recomend I use it with traktor or stand alone
They’re both good controllers, DJing can be learned effectively on either. Neither will make you a “better” DJ. Think of DJ controllers like buying a car – you can take any car down any road, but it’s the roads you choose that count, not what’s fitted on the dashboard! In this instance, look at the software (ITCH vs Traktor) and decide which you think you’d be most comfortable with.
