Using CDJ's with serato
Is it any different from using turntables w/serato? I've most likely got a gig at a fairly well know club in Mexico and I've been there before and noticed they have CDJ-800's or something so whats the go there? Any pointers yall?

just make sure you leave the pitch lock button off, otherwise ssl will have problems tracking because the tone come through correctly.

hey guys yeah it went well.. thanks for all the support! the only bad thing is the small amount of lag but really my mac is fast enough so this is barely noticeable!

and guess what.. ahha they have DVJ 1000's there haha.. cant ask for more!.. mm wonder how to use their video features..

And the beautiful thing is that Serato and Traktor give you the waveform data. Sweet!
