Traktor Duo with Audio4 DJ
This may have already been mentioned but caught this on the Spank blog today:

http://blog.spankrecords.com.au/span...-april-1-.html

Looks like NI are doing what everyone expected and releasing a stripped back version of Traktor Scratch Pro with 2 deck control, less effects and the Audio4 soundcard. I reckon this is going to suit a lot of people and will sell like hotcakes.

The audio4 has been out for a while, but as far as I know being sold on its own. This is the new package including the control vinyls, cable, software etc...

more comparable to Serato.. 2 decks, about the same price..

i think the idea is to make inroads into those that would otherwise just get serato since it's cheaper than TSP..

oh yeah that's pretty cool. well this will rip on serato again because it comes with a nice 2ch sound card in case you don't already have a nice 2ch sound card (if you bought serato, chance is you might not).

huh??

The serato box is a 4 channel (2 in 2 out) sound card, just like the Audio4 DJ.. And this is made by RANE, so it's good quality.. it always comes with SSL..

troll fael.

this is a great idea and being the similar price to Rane SL is a great thing and something I've been waiting for to get back into DVS.

all the whinging bitches that just want a slick fast package with no mess, this will be it.

also theres no trolling going on here. read what I posted. address that with your tiny traktor addled brains.

Traktor is making the dj dream seem more attainable to a massive amount of un-awesome people. Its cheapening the whole thing considerably. Its funny too because pretty much all traktor dj's use the sync feature and when they dont they fuck up. seen it happen loads. its even funnier when they mess up the set up and start getting all flustered 'oh nooo i might have to actually mixxxx'


hahaha totally un-awesome ****s!!

where is the 'feel' button on traktor? or the 'passion' button
cause boy oh boy it needs it!

sounds like you're the one who needs a feel and a pash, buddy. plenty of spots around town can help you out with this.

anyway regarding the SL1 -- it has asio innit? so you can pretty much run any software that supports it as well. obviously i have not tried this, but it seems to work in theory.

thats what i thought when i first bought traktor but now I love the freedom of 4 decks although im sure it sounds better to me than anyone else unfortunate enough to hear me train wrecking my way through mixes.

Also im sure some people that buy traktor just use sync, but not all. i never use sync and i have turned my bpm display off on each deck just to force myself to actually learn what im actually doing.

Oh snap, thats commitment. I don't use sync because I know all too well you can't trust the sync button. But I still have the bpm displayed.

Sync is a handy feature if used correctly

Certainly allows me to do some far greater creative things that otherwise would be a nightmare to try to pull off.

Like anything, when used right its just another tool that we now have that we didnt 5 years ago.

I can still sync by ear, but I just leave that to when I'm using acappellas and stuff like that. So I still have the skill to do so, you could just say I'm lazy

the thing is the sl1, does only have asio driver sin beta, thats because the hardware is limited and does not fully support the asio standard. on the other hand core audio (the audio standard for mac) isnt supported at all.
what this means: if you have the sl1 and wanna use it for recording or whatever on the mac you CANT use it.
if you have the sl1 and use it for ableton using windows you can use it if you install the asio beta drivers.

if you wanna reroute serato thru ableton no matter which os youre using. it doesnt work, because serato doesnt support rewire or midi beatclock or whatever...

if you have the ttm57sl, congrats this one fully supports asio and coreaudio and you can use it for every application, however reouting still deosnt work because of the serato software...

hope everythings clear now and you can call me egghead

that's exactly why i got traktor in the end
but might switch over to serato once word comes out on the ableton creative partnership and we see what the results of this are and if you can send/return signals in and out of ableton serato might have my dosh (finally)

sorry mate, i genuinely thought you were some other idiot from the other week...

i thought it was worth mentioning that i've been a vinyl DJ for over 8 years and i've recently made the switch to the digital realm. why? because i can be more creative with digital files than i could with pure vinyl. you see, the ability to make my own bootlegs, mashups and loops is what i always wanted to do with vinyl but couldn't quickly and easily. it's given me a taste of what composing could be like and it's actually increased my drive to collect and play a wider range of music than before

so, since using traktor....

drive = win
passion = bigger win

you = lose

theyve actually tried to do this. however they have hardware limitations in the sl1 which hasnt been considered when theyve developed it. the sl1 is pretty old and they didnt consider standards like asio or core aduio (also those standards have developed over the years)
they did a good thing with the ttm57sl howsoever
i think a new version of serato will be announced within the next two years anyways.
