seriously.

whinge less.

all of you.

it will get here.

standard international packages are average 2 weeks from germany... when it gets to aus, it goes to customs, then it goes to aus posts international sorting facility, then it goes to a regional sorting facility, then its delivered. there is no way all that could be done in less than 1 week, also keep in mind, ITS NEARLY CHRISTMAS, which means about a 40% rise in packages entering and leaving the country, more delays.


DHL might say 2-4 days. but germans are efficient. we are not. and I KNOW THIS!

I used to work for Auspost and dealt with international complaints and investigations.

sea mail is 3 months, so be glad its not seamail

call 13 13 18 and ask to speak with someone in the international department, they can explain it to you aswell.

Isn't it free shipping? I don't think they are organizing a private jet to deliver your tractor pro. Just give it some time.. It generally takes a month for stuff delivered from Germany

you should have done your research before ordering something from the other side of the world during the busiest time of the postal year...

Well to add insult to injury. I ordered an X1 via NI a week ago, thinking it would complement the Traktor package that I ordered at the end of Oct nicely.

It was sent by standard mail, not DHL. So no tracking available.
And it arrived today.

Some fcker at Aus Post or Customs is taking the piss I reckon.

Think this is a bit of the norm. Mine shipped on 10/11, but still no dice yet. When it comes it comes, though its definitely not 4 days, definitely not 10-14 days, and definitely not 3 weeks.

thank you for your Email.

We have a big delay with every Australian Package. DHL made a big mistake and send
all Orders with the Ship not with the plane. Delivery Time is 8 weeks.

We cannot send you an Replacement, the Product is sold out and no longer in our
range. The only thing that i can do is that i make an Refund back to you and when
the Shipment coming in the next few days/weeks you need to refuse it.

Or you need to wait.

With best regards from Berlin.

Got this email to day also. DHL = fail.

Aside from the ridiculous 8 week wait. I wonder if the "no longer in our range" is just a bit of bad German > English translation, or has she let slip that they were actually running out the Audio 8 (4,2) hardware and something new is on the way...

I think I'll have to request a refund. I just got an email from DHL that said 8-12 weeks is more realistic with the Christmas rush.

Something tells me that NI will have announced something new by then... which I wouldn't mind so much given the savings... but would be a bit too hard to take for something that hadn't even arrived yet!

so just so everyone knows, just found out that although it is supposedly sent with DHL, DHL owns or is owned by Deutsch Post. So while it appears it has been sent by a courier and you expect fast shipping times, it hasn't been, NI just label it as if it is coming through a courier service. Nevertheless Deutsch Post clearly is also failing pretty miserably. Mine came, but half the box was soaking wet. at least yours will probably work okay when it comes.

FFS.

I ordered on the 28th of Oct.
Its now gotten to Oz, but has been waiting supposedly at the delivery depot since the 16th.

DHL Aus still has no info on it though, so I dunno who to call up and abuse.

Sold out and no longer available from NI at any price... you can't get an audio 8 or audio 4 anymore either from their site!

You can still buy a scratch pro upgrade for existing traktor scratch 1 or scratch duo owners for $79...





What on earth are they up to...?

I was just about to upgrade as I departed with my SL 1 this week and thought about moving away from serato at this oportune time rather than getting the SL 3 for my 3 deck dvs needs!

Until I work out what NI are doing, I'm going to try mixxx http://mixxx.org/ with my 10 channel interface and serato control vinyl so at least I still have DVS for 2 decks while I work out what to actually spend money on... will let you know if it works well as free option, might be interesting?



EDIT: I am a little confused with something as I've never actually owned traktor scratch duo or pro so hopefully someone can help... reading between the lines on NI's site with what is available and upgrade paths re: scratch pro it doesn't indicate you actually need the audio 8 or audio 4 at all...

Would another interface do the same job if I had proper licenced (and dvs enabled) version of traktor scratch pro...?!?! $79 (plus control vinyl costs) sounds good to me for 3 deck dvs and everything else in scratch pro!

Yeah CDJ400s will work as an interface for it.

But to use time code vinyl it will need the audio 8 or 4 interface, from what I've read

Which NI doesn't sell....


But this is taken from NI's FAQ and correct me if I'm wrong but Traktor Pro doesn't come with the audio 8 or 4 interface...?!

4.) I own TRAKTOR PRO and want to use timecode vinyls and/or CDs. What must I do?

Please note that TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO contains the TRAKTOR PRO software, but with additional DVS functionality enabled.
This vinyl / CD control is only possible via purchasing a TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO product (full version, update, crossgrade or upgrade kit). Each one of those products contains a TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO licence, necessary to enable DVS functionality. It is NOT possible to get DVS functionality by owning TRAKTOR PRO and purchasing an audio interface such as the AUDIO 8 DJ or AUDIO 4 DJ.
TRAKTOR PRO users should buy the TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO UPGRADE.



It really does seem from the above that the audio 8 or audio 4 are now not needed (and probably never were)...

Any updates from anyone on whether it's been delivered? This was the email I got most recently at the end of 2010:

Quote:

"Hello ,

Unfortunately it took us longer than planned to full fill your order. We sincerely
apologize for the delay!

Due to a combination of very high order volume and extreme weather conditions,
delivery processes are taking longer than usual. Together with our logistics
partner, we are working hard to make sure that the product that you ordered will
reach you as soon as possible.

Unless you receive additional information concerning your order via email, you can
be assured that it will be shipped before the end of the year. We would like to
thank you for your continued patience!

If you still require our assistance, please simply reply to this email, otherwise
we will consider the issue to be resolved.

We wish you and your loved ones Happy Holidays, and a musical 2011!

Best regards from Berlin,"

Obviously didn't show, and of course they aren't replying to their email. Total crap. Will just foot the extra $50 and buy locally next time.

So i could buy the TSP software, and use any old soundcard with a midi controller then?

And then buy the control cd/vinyl & cables later if i want to go down that path?

yeah, i contacted dhl and they said the parcel is running behind time. They also said to contact Native Instruments and ask or get a refund. I'm going to have to go for the latter because of SL4 or TSP2...

Anyone know how to place a credit card dispute? cheers
