  1. Hey buddy, just figured out my soundcloud login details. stalking....I mean following you lol.

    Also got started on cleaning out downstairs today and got a power board to plug in so should be back on the decks tomorrow and opened up Ableton tonight, first time in a long time. Just wanted to say thank you specifically as you have been really friendly and has made this much easier to get back into things. Thanks man :)

      Yeah I'm seeing a few things, and rekordbox looks good given the backing of both hardware and software done by pioneer. God knows their mixers and I assume cdj are industry standard. I recall playing in the djm 600 back in the day. But same goes with traktor with the NI line of products. But pioneer are newbies in the software side, so there's that.

      i agree time coded vinyl will be the way to go, then I will need to investigate and research the different 'controllers' and/or mixers. I do like the idea of setting a cue point with a press of a button and have been watching a few mixes on the z2 so atm I think that's what I am leaning towards, and that's why I started on ableton, was to add more production and homemade tracks to go with the mixing/scratching.

      anyways I'm sorry to regurgitate this to you, just wanted to kinda get advice from someone in the know and up to date with what's out there at the moment. 

      Actually one question, if I were to go the traktor route, I got confused with all the different naming and options. Is there one that can actually hook up multiple decks. IE a set for mixing and have a scratch set plugged in running on an extra channel from a 4 channel mixer type thing?

      Or would I need to buy them individually? I will keep researching but that will be the end requirement for final decision.

      Did you get your car sorted with the fluctuation in rpm as well?

      Pioneer is only industry standard because they bough their way in lol

      hmm... you can use 4 decks but you'll need to buy the bigger sound card, which I think is an audio 10 but I'm not sure...

      i don't know much about the Z2 but it does come handy being able to have those cur point functions on a mixer. When I was using time code vinyl I was using the dicers by Novation. They're super cool but you need to map them in traktor and it's a bitch! the dicers are plug and play with serato but not traktor which is why you need to map them. MIDI mapping in traktor is a very time consuming process. It took me 3hrs to figure out how to do it lol

      i think the z2 with the time code would definitely be a good option. I'm assuming they only make that 2ch so if you were looking for more you'd probably have to go 4ch mixer and then find a sound card that has 4 inputs
