That would certainly get you started, just be aware that the fader in any second hand battle mixer is going to be thrashed and mixers with visable screws holding the x fader are going to catch your nails alot more than you would think (and it really hurts) , that said you could easily fit an innofader to it later on and then it would be pretty bulletproof. If going second hand look for vestax pmc 05 models. Thats what i learnt on and its still going strong at the skrewloose practice lab.

$200 is like a few hours worth of drinks at a bar

 

To end up with 2 decks and a mixer for that price is worth it any day of the week

For the price you're looking for at the level you're going to use it, the only thing you need to be aware of is how used/damaged the crossfader is.

 

Everything else is semantics (so long as the mixer wasn't originally sold at Toy World)

The one big thing you need with any good scratch mixer is a good crossfader......

the crossfader in the m4 is OK.....not good but ok..

lucky for you,...,..you can drop a innofader pro 2 in the m4 and have a bad-ass 4 channel scratch mixer

 

with a innofader pro 2 in the m4 mixer you will be able to adjust crossfader curve ( sharp curve for scratch. ) and crossfader cut in ( the distance the crossfader has to move before you get sound) and the crossfader weight ( how smooth the crossfader feels )

 

get a innofader....the best $$ you will ever spend ........and when your over the m4 and need a better mixer, you can pull the innofader out and put it in the new mixer

yeah your right wazza, iv heard so much about the innofader and used one when picking up some needles from storedj

 

does it have to be a innofader pro 2 ? or can it be a cheaper one? , where do you usually get innofaders from?

I don't think the innofader mini is working with the m4.........the innofader pro is way better ..better feel 

 

I got my innofader from light- sounds.          

And I got two innofader mini straight from innofader
