    Serato + Traktor would be the obvious ones, I use Serato and its great although I think Traktor is a lot cheaper.

    I got traktor a week ago for that exact reason Jhepz, just got bored with having so many CDs. £230 for traktor is a bargain imo.

    Although it feels far too easy with CDJs, might have to get some 1210s....

    Are you looking for something to mix on without using your decks? If to vdj would be ideal

    SL2 id say, SL3 if you plan on getting another cdj and mixing with all 3. You can come have a look at mine and see if you like it

    Haha, nooo, serato! Take it the little sesh round mine didnt convince you to go for serato? lol.

    In my opinion serato is the only choice, but its all personal preference. Before splashing the cash on a DVS make sure you try out your options hands on first. Find some mates with traktor/serato etc or go down to west end DJ or something and give them a spin.

    We've had this debate before. Anyway resume! Traktor is all you need don't see why you would splash out more for Serato
