  1. Hey guys ! im using a mixtrack pro and a kontrol f1 in traktor pro 2.6. how can i change the settings so i can use the crossfader like that ? i know how in virtual dj but not in traktor. Please help : )

  2. you're a really good teacher btw. i only know the basics about scratching. i bet i could learn more from your videos. thanks…

  3. isn't there a way to set the cross fading curve on the mixer so that the cross fader does't have to travel such a long distance? then if the cross fader smells only your fingers, it'll let you hear what's on the other deck…

  4. how often would you have to change needles on you SL12s? if i were you, i'd go with the high tech stuff man. lol…buy thats just me.

  5. Hi

    I have a Pioneer DJM 600, my crossfaider takes about 4mm of movement before I get my "switch". Is this a normal amout of movement and is this ok for Scrathing?


  6. @DubSpot i tried lots of midi stuff and all that..i find myself going back to turntables. idk it just doesnt feel the same..i miss it:(

  7. @kwidg87 i just keep to bedroom DJing, and i have the most fun in the world with 2 vinyl turntables and a mixer that cost 100 quid in total! and yes, i scratch. Its not the gear – its what you do with it!! Buy a skipless scratch record ("superseal" is really good) so you dont have to worry about good needles. Make your own slipmat out of some slippy plastic so you dont have to worry about crappy torque. Then just have fun – if you one day upgrade then you will be 10x better with expensive gear!

  8. If your just starting to DJ and have a laptop I would say your best option is to use the Traktor Kontrol S4. It has 2 decks built into it that can control 4 decks in Traktor. It also has a 4 channel mixer (with EQ's and filters) and soundcard built into it, and has buttons for browsing, looping, FX etc. It will save you from having to buy 2 Turntables, a mixer, amp, and dj software & hardware since its all of these in one, and would allow you to be able to take your dj setup anywhere.
