    I am more in the production area but i'm trying to develop my mixing skills to earn some money on clubs and shit... I already use traktor but ya know...

    I was thinkin in buying the Pioneer CDJ-400 but i don't know what mixer I should buy. What do you think?

    (yes i do know that vinyl is better but i can't afford it... and i'm just starting to mix)

    yeah i'd agree, they're great value, I got an axis 9 off ebay for 60 quid, just had to replace the pitch shifter button and it has the same features as a CDJ 3x it's price

    I think you would like us to say Pioneer DJM 400?

    I suggest you buy a lovely Pioneer DJM 400.

    Enjoy your mixer. :)

    Which Vestax out of interest? Ecler do have a strong reputation for scratching, but the NUO range is built for more versatile mixing styles. You don't have to go for the eternal upgrade.

    Vestax VMC001XL ,

    Its got everything you'll need ! and the EQs feel really good + adjustable crossfader curve if u want to have a bash at scratching
