Hey everyone, gonna be starting some DJ sets around the local area and am looking for advice on what decks and mixer would be the best to grab for a first timer. Price range is under $1k for the lot and am looking for best quality for money. Cheers in advance for your suggestions!
Rig: Yamaha S90 XS, Nord Stage 76 EX, Custom Designed Melodica, Korg Nano Key, Korg Nano Pad, Korg Kaossilator, VAIO notebook
I've really been digging Native Instruments' S2 / Traktor Pro 2 package. List is $599. When Traktor goes to 2.5 sometime this quarter, it's a free update.
I also have an NS7, but it's not a "starter" kind of thing. Part of the issue is deciding which software you want to use, as the controllers are usually designed around the software. Seems to me that Traktor and Virtual DJ have the most numbers. I actually like Torq a lot too, but I'm not sure how much attention it's getting from Avid.
