    So within the next couple of weeks im selling my cdjs and am getting some 1210s and will be getting Traktor Scratch Pro 2.

    Im getting pretty confused trying to work out what I need to set everything up, I will be using 2 1210s and a cdj. Do I need to get those multicore cables or do I just need to get another three 2 X Rca cables?

    And wanted to check that it will work using 2 1210s and a cdj 800 mk2, and how would I go about setting this up?

    Sorry for the noob questions, have never used a DVS system!

    My only advice is:

    "Get Serato"

    That said, if your buying traktor scratch new everything you need will be in the box.

    1210's plugg into the sound card ---> Sound card plugged into mixer ---> usb cable into computer


    When i got serato it had all the necessary cables. But really the only cables you need are rca's to plug from sound card into the mixer.


    But yeah.
    Get serato.

    if you have cdjs why are you buying 1210's and traktor scratch? just buy an interface that works with cdjs...

    Cause cdjs have become boring and have no soul! Want to actually have some feel when I mix and riding the pitch on cdjs isnt the best

    Ha think im still gonna go for Traktor as on ebay ive found a good price, and after plenty of research it seems just like personal preference, and I do think the Traktor hardware looks better and having the option to plug in a 4th deck is good.
    Ive seen on alot of websites that its sold out and is discontinued now though, does anyone know when the new interfaces might be released?

    I hate djs that use dvs . When you play after them you have to re wire everything. If you like the feel of vinyl, spin the real stuff. if you prefer digital use CDjs !

    Well i cant afford to buy vinyls and considering I have all my tunes digitally from using cdjs it makes sense to go dvs instead of vinyl. Im definitely not sticking to cdjs have already made my mind up! Dont worry when I play out I'll make sure I rewire the mess I make haha

    they should rewire it themselves!

    i'd rather use vinyl or cdjs to traktor - what cdjs do you use?

    Yeah I let the guy do that at sn1 and he put in a dodgy cable in the right cdj and when I went to play the first track sound was only coming through the left channel on the master output. Pure ball ache.

    You'd think people would know what they were doing if they're doing that every time they play...

    I am being a bit of a prick to be fair it was the right cable in the right place. It was because it was broken. The original cable that was put in at the beginning of the day worked fine. He just changed it .

    You're mates with Rob aren't you? He posts about you loads on Facebook haha so rare, anyway I've got Technics and Serato (Only SL1 though) and I've heard that's the norm for clubs. Traktor looks just as good if not better, does have loads of features that I don't need though.

    Serato = thru button.

    Click that and it bypasses the DVS. No rewiring needed whatsoever.

    That's why loads of clubs have serato sl4 plugged in constantly. You can just bypass it instead of fucking about with cables.
    Problem? =D

    From what ive experienced, if I close down serato properly it'll revert back to thru, but if you unplug the USB with serato open it'll stay on timecodes.
