    Hi peeps! How are you?

    Well, I've got an entry level consolle atm (2pioneer200+BehringerDX626) and I'm considering an upgrade in the digital field.

    I'm looking for something portable with no need of cdjs/decks fully supported by a good controller.


    Help me please! Share your thoughts! :)

    Ableton would be better for your needs imo.

    I'd like to mix and gradually throw in some of my samples. Isn't Ableton focused more on a "pure live" performance? Plus: which controller could I get for ableton?

    Russla, thanks for join. :)

    I think traktor/virtual DJ would be more suited to your needs to be honest. Its much closer to traditional DJ'ing, which is what youre used to. Not as steep a learning curve.

    im thinking this as well.

    but if you stick w/ ableton, Novation makes a controller for it. looks like a massive mpd, but the pads are smaller.
