    Hi
    I think that my title says all. I went to a club and fall instantly in love, i couldnt stop fantazizing about playing my own tracks as if I play a vinyl. so what is the cheapest way to get me a timecode setup (ive allready have 2 turntables and a nunmark 2 channel mixer).

    Thanks to all

    MD

    Serato and Traktor are the best but quite expensive. Check out some of the cheaper ones like torqe etc. Look on decks.co.uk in the timecode vinyl section as they sell most of the options.

    its awesome dude.. i currently run torq and have had no probs what so ever..

    but will prob look into getting serato or traktor which ever becomes club standard

    but for the minute torq does the trick.. nice layout.. easy to set up.. and easy on the wallet! (only 170)

    I upgraded to serato recently and can't really fault it at all. Haven't had any sound issues / set up problems (other than club system issues like the wires being labelled wrongly) / crashes.

    I am running it on a macbook pro so wouldn't expect faults from that, runs smoothly and really stable.

    Having cue points and all you tunes right in front of you makes things so much easier.

    EDIT: Yes it is expensive, but its for a reason. Had a go on traktor and it really didn't compare in my opinion.

    have you tried this? I've always been tempted but could see it being a right pain in the arse for club use and with my laptop it'd probably be really laggy too
