Love love LOVE this controller!
-Excellent jogwheels, just the right size and incredibly responsive. As close as you could get to the real thing. The dual function of them also really makes them diverse, and the ability to turn scratch on and off at the press of a button is really quite refreshing.
-The tempo slider is bang on, whats more you get a little LED that tells you when your back on track. Awesome! In addition, you get a super good pitch bend!
-Sync, Cue, Start/Pause and Stutter buttons are all self explanitory. Work really well and have a nice click to them.
- !THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN SOME MODELS. THE MODEL FOR TRAKTOR HAS BASS, MID AND TREB KILLS ON THE TOP ROW OF THE EFFECTS AREA. THE VDJ MODEL HAS HOT CUES INSTEAD. WHICHEVER MODEL YOU GET, THE FUNCTION WILL CHANGE DEPENDING ON WHICH SOFTWARE YOU PLUG INTO!
-I have the Traktor Model yet I use it with VDJ, works at charm and the hotcues work fine.
-The effects row is excellent. The button is nice and the knobs are very precise, giving you huge flexibility over you effects.
-Loop row is unbelievable, with the ability to go with manual or auto loops and switch between the two, you cant go wrong.
-The EQ is the best for this price range. Some other models do not completely cut sound when turning down all the knobs but this does fine, with complete accuracy.
-The track select knob is so useful, especially with the added bonus of being able to choose which deck you load the mp3 onto. Easy and quick to handle.
-Cue gain and cue mix work very well.
-The Gains and the crossfader are high quality, the gains giving more resistance with movement in comparison to the easy to move crossfader, allowing for some basic scratching aswell as mixing.
-Keylock button is such a great bonus.
-Whole unit is incredibly light but very sturdy, doesnt feel plasticy at all. High quality.
-The heads on the sliders of the gains and the crossfader could be slightly stronger, feel a little week in comparison to the pitch slider.
This is literally the only bad thing I could pull out.
Wether or not your starting out DJ'ing or are a professional looking for something lightweight to move around quick, this controller is the one for you. Excellent quality, excellent price.
