I was fortunate enough to spend a day with Paul last week to run through Traktor Scratch (set up, creating play lists, effects etc)
I have to say, I was really pleased with the ‘one to one’ course.
While all my other dj mates use Serato, I decided to be a little ‘different’. I’m so glad I chose Traktor. The time coded vinyls are better than Serato, the hardware is so much better and the leads and setting up is so much easier and quicker than Serato. Andf the other thing…Traktor recognises iTunes within its software whereas Serato doesn’t.
For all you djs out there that are thinking about moving over to the laptop - do it!! its so much easier carrying 1 ruck sack rather than folders of cds/vinyls.
And if you want to get training on the software, dont waste your time getting in touch with Native Instruments, or people like Point Blank CALL SONIC!!! I went to Sonic all the way from London and I wasn’t disappointed (hey I managed to chat up an Irish girl in the local All Saints store).
Thank you & Good Luck
