Um like wouldn't you just feel like a loser, DJing on a computer in front of a crowd?

Do Traktor DJs think that they're awesome syncing four decks?

What is the difference between someone using the keyboard shortcuts for free Traktor Duo Portable and someone that uses the Traktor S4?

Do Traktor S4 DJs actually get gigs other than DJing at home in their bedroom?

@ Mute - yeah i was just using the producer field as an example of an extra field (this i believe i additional to artist)

Re comments field - not sure about limitless but certainly able to hold multiple searchable words.

For tagging you should really check out this free third party tool and site - lots of good ideas here!

Quick question regarding TSP.

Can I just keep all my music on an external HD and plug it into my laptop when I want to use TSP? Will this still remember my saved hotcues/loops/beatgrids etc?

Could this also trigger lag or performance issues?

Is it just better to store the music on the laptop?

yes - Traktor's "library" file (which contains all that info) will be stored on the internal disk, while referencing the external - no problems there, quite a few people work this way

you won't get any lag unless you're using a rediculously slow or usb1.1 HDD (load times may be a little slower, but much quicker than loading from CD)

firewire is the best option for an external drive, but not a necessity in this case (we're not talking about big files nor do we need realtime loading)

Those of you who have mentioned Bass Kleph, that dude is the Native Instruments set KING. With his s4 and machine at the show i last saw him at (s4 had been released two days before) he was already playing some of his tracks off his new EP live (and i mean unquantized leads and everything that he actually played and then looped). Was amazing

Got my s4 roadcase finally, pretty heavy but will do the trick.

New software is great too, the slight changes and the fact its a little more rock solid have made me excited all over again. Enjoying building ideas for sets a lot more now
