The Best Solution
I've been DJing for over twenty years, aboout 5 years ago I made the Jump from from pure vinyl to two Pioneer mkII CD-J's. I loved them, but still felt witha a mixer it was alot of gear, and still I was envious of my buddies who had made the jump to Serato's Final scratch, I did miss the tactileness of my old school 1200's. I recently had my decks stolen, and instead of investing in Serato Final Scratch (still a bulky setup) I went with the NS-7 and haven't looked back. In a compact and logical setup I got everything I needed. They even pulled 1200 motors out and plopped them into what are your control platters. The FX controller is intuitive and flexible, and nothing sounds as good as Serato's time stretch algorithms. I reccomend this to any proffesional dee Jay, screw the hassel of lugging two decks and a mixer not to mention Serato hardware, when it's all in one compact piece of hardware. The extras like phrase friendly reverse, on the fly cue points and an awesome looping and dicing functions and nothing compares.
