DJ Plus1 from Corpus Christi, TX, Sonic Electronix
15 November 2010
Conclusion: Has to be the best controller in its class. Has the feel of real vinyl and saved me from buying a lot of other equipment. Can't think of any pro's/con's off hand only because the NS7FX has too many pro's to list and the con's are basically nitpicking. If you want a superb DJ controller, look no further. This will get the job done. I mean, I actually SAVED money by going with this controller by not having to buy other expensive mixers.
Conclusion: Pros: AWESOME fun Easy to use Nice layout Dead on feel Cons: For flawless software playback, you HAVE to use a MAC. They like to break, the service department is slow, and prone to mess ups.
Summary: So much fun. My old computer with vista home premium 32 bit worked great with it beside the fact that I had a slow processor. I got a new laptop with an i5 processor, but made the mistake of getting 64 bit Windows 7. Still waiting on a final version of the drive hardware so I can use my faster laptop with the ns7.
Summary: I too have always been a vinyl Dj and I must say ...Once I've gotten all the setup issues out of the way, I got a great piece of equipment that is accurate as heck. I'm still in transition from another program but, I find with practice, I'm learning quickly. My son also wants to jump on board and learn how to 'spin'. I'd rather teach my son on this durable piece of hardware instead of showing him on actual vinyl ...much less to break.
Summary: I am an oldschool DJ who stopped DJing some time ago. I came back and purchased this to go along with my MacBook Pro.. And i love it.... It is the most impressive pice of modern gear i have played with. I tried CDJs and Tracktor controllers.. And they are all nice.. But this is impressive. The only downside is the weight.... Purchase the case.. It is most!
Summary: This is the best DJ controller on the market, the BEST hands down. A must have for any dj -New or veteran. But the software (ITCH) is lacking, I would go with VDJ or Numark CUE 6. You'll see. There is just too much problems and Itch doesn't perform as well as VDJ or CUE. I have had NO PROBLEMS whatsoever with VDJ or CUE, but many with ITCH. Latencey and memory hog issues. It's not the controller every one! ITCH is just not what it was cracked up to be.
