    Yo.

    My mate is looking to get himself a pair of technics. He already has a Traktor S4 Controller. Is it possible for him to plug a pair of Technics into it and use them with timecode vinyl through the S4 and his laptop?

    Cheers :)

    I doubt the s4 has the required preamps.

    Pretty impressive really!

    Considering my mate was going to sell his controller and buy a pair of technics, a mixer and the traktor box i think ive just saved him some serious money! Especially as he has a 4 channel mixer in essence

    Yeh dude, literally just plug 1210s in to whatever channels you want, whack a timecode vinyl on and you are away.
