$US335 for a Audio 8 DJ alone is worth it!

whoa~!!! lucky i sold mine alredy!!! otherwise it would be a bitch to re-sell it at that price

i wonder what they are up to?

people in the ni forums are talking about a possible paid upgrade (like from traktor scratch to traktor scratch pro)

maybe thats the reason for dropping the price?

That was my inspiration, essentially. That, and not having to look frantically through my CD wallet / record box for that tune.

Serato all the way, for me, now!

WTF that's real cheap. Considering it's free delivery too. I was just looking on some US ebay sites and I thought 450 US delivered was a good deal

Plus I'm in need of a USB audio interface to replace my old PCI one. Perfect!

Are they coming out with something new? Wonder why there is a massive price drop. I was checking it out night before and it was about $599

hahaha i guess for many people, the first reason they get into dvs is coz they hate burning cds (including me)


For $330 usd, traktor scratch pro is definitely worth every cent (with the us dollar being hella weak especially!) and free shipping from ni shop! the soundcard itself is really really really nice, and you can use the audio8 dj with DAW software as well

I believe NI have dropped the price because of the S4 being the new flagship product. I also suspect both TSP and TP will be upgraded to incorporate the sample decks featured in the S4 software - this obviously is going to cost the existing product owners an extra US100 for the new overhaul.

In addition to that there has been rumours that a new sound card will be introduced with the new TSP package that will replace the Audio 8 (of course this is just speculation!)

I'm just about to purchase it myself. When you go to check out, the only shipping option is standard delivery which has no tracking option, was this the same for you?

I've had problems with Auspost losing non-trackable items in the past, so I'm going to contact NI to see what else they can offer.

Yep I just made an order. Hopefully it will be here by next week.

Will let you know how it goes. Don't forget though, the deal is until all stocks are gone so don't hold out too long.

I've bought all my NI stuff from their shop. Free delivery and prices are normally cheaper for all their products, even before the Aussie dollar price rise. Everything has come in about two weeks perfectly fine.

I think this pretty much guarantees there will be a paid upgrade early next year

Unreal. Saw the email and placed an order this morning.

Only yesterday I was in-store - literally cash in hand - looking to pick up TSP but held off. Partially due to lack of service actually (it is Perth after-all). Feels like the first time in ages I seem to be on the "winning" side of an unexpected price change!

Fully expect a paid upgrade in the new year but at this price (and looking at the cost of previous upgrades) it's still all win.

NI usually drop the price of products when they are about to release a major upgrade and i suspect that this has already been indicated with the release of the S4... wait and see what happens just before xmas!

Sorry but how is Store Dj going to fix a NI product. They'd only have to send it to Germany anyway.

Just ordered it. (Traktor Scratch Pro)

I feel sorry for the poor guys who bought this like 1 day before after months of contemplation. On the plus, I got it for half price

warranty claims go through the dealer, not NI directly.

actually

when my X1 has the "tea time knob glitch" , native instruments gave me a choice of either sending it back to them (they will refund me any shipping costs) and they will send me a new unit, or bring it back to the shop i bought it for (and show them a letter from them) to get a brand new unit replacement.

so i think it could be either - provided you have a legit receipt (from authorized dealer, not ebay) and im sure djtechtools is an authorized dealer so native instruments will cover you

Audio 10?? 4 decks plus recording? I think it would be just a change of package for the new s4 software that will be out early next year!

you can record internally to the program IIRC.... so there's no need.

that is if you're not mixing externally (the way most scratch users do) - so an extra pair of inputs would make sense for recording...

As I said it's only speculation based on NI and DJTT forum talk..

If they did I guess it would have something to do with the sample decks because you would effectively have 16+ channels/decks (4 sample decks per deck). But, it does seem highly unlikely.

it'll be unlikely that each sample will have individual outputs... I have a feeling each sample "deck" will have one stereo output per four samples

Well I ordered on last Thursday 28th, and checking on the DHL tracking site, the status is
"30.10.10....Shipment in transportation to destination country"

So hopefully it will arrive by the end of the week

When you say you want it fast as possible, is it because you need it for a gig or you just can't wait?
