Excerpt: Man, this is thin is complicated to figure it out if you a novice like myself. The manual is not the best one I have seen but after I played with it for 2-3 days I was able to figure it out. Main drawback is: you cannot talk on the microphone over music playing. Music stops while talking on microphone. It is not the end of the world but I had higher expectation since it is German design.
Excerpt: Overall this is a great midi controller. It is small light weight and can do just about everything you want it to do. The effects and how they are laid out is great. The jog wheel size isn't an issue at all. Everything is perfect on it except for one thing, the sensitivity on the pitch/ bpm control is not sensitive at all. On screen it jumps about .12 everytime you move it, which means i have to use the sync unless the songs are already the same bpm.
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Professional Features, Versatile
Excerpt: This was my first DJ machine and I could not ask for anything better. I am a novice with DJ equipment but I found the interface and Traktor program excellent and easy to use. The price is what really makes this product. For its price it could be the best machine of its kind.
Pros: Easy To Use, Professional Features, Versatile
Excerpt: Works great on my MacBook Pro w/ Virtual DJ V5. Just plugged it right in and started. Everything seems to work very well, except I haven't been able to get the XLR Mic input to work, and I haven't been able to use the RCA/Phono input to mix. This may just be a software or setting problem however. Overall I am pleased w/ how this system works. Lots of cool options for the price. Great for amateur DJ's just starting-up.
Excerpt: (THIS BCD3000 CONTROLLER IS THE BEST ONE) BUT THE ONLY REASON I GIVE IT 4 STARS IS BECAUSE THE TRAKTOR SOFTWARE THAT COMES WITH IT IS A TOTAL DISASTER, NOT ALL THE FUNCTIONS WORK OR WORK WHENEVER THEY WANTED, I UNINSTALLED AND INSTALLED THIS TRAKTOR SOFTWARE SEVERAL TIMES BUT IT NEVER WORK PROPERLY.I WENT TO MY LOCAL ELECTRONIC STORE AND BUY A DJ SOFTWARE CALL "DECKADANCE" AND INSTALLED IT AND WOW IT WORK JUST GREAT WITH MY BCD3000, EVERYTHING WORK PERFECTLY AND ALL THE...

Excerpt: This is the best thing i have ever bought. Everynight i practice with it and it works perfect. The traktor LE it comes with it is perfect. I host parties at my house and i plug it in to my laptop hookup the speakers turn my lights on and every person loves the music and starts dancing and its all good. I would 10000% recomend this to anyone. THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING!
Pros: Consistent, Easy To Use, Professional Features
Excerpt: the controller itself is great and works perfectly in every aspect. the traktor software that came bundled with controller would not activate with the serial number included on the package. it was a huge inconvenience when I just wanted to start using it. if you aren't planning on using the included software then its a great buy.
Excerpt: i gave this product 4 stars because of set up. if set up was easier it would be a definite 5 stars. i had to custom map every button, knob and fader on the controller which took 3 hours. controller worked great after initial set up. there is a specific sequence when powering up system. turn on laptop. turn on controller. once laptop is up and running, plug in usb from controller. wait, let laptop recognize controller by showing bcd icon in tray. launch traktor pro.
