    Ok so ive been using one of those little Hercules mp3 decks with Virtual DJ to learn how to mix on, well a few days ago i upgraded to a Numark Mixtrack Pro and Traktor Pro but i cant figure out how to skip through a track quickly on it without having to click on my laptop? The Hercules had a fast forward button, the Numark doesnt. I can spin the platters, but it just takes a hell of lot of spinning to get to the point in the track were i want to start mixing from?

    I think you hold the next track button and spin the wheel to fast fast forward - Might be wrong tho as I aint used Numark since the summer
