Topic: Choosing my first DJ Controller
At the moment I am trying to decide between:
- Pioneer DDJ400 2 Channel Rekordbox DJ Controller
- Numark Mixtrack Platinum Controller w/ Serato DJ Intro
- Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 Mk2
Would very much like to hear your thoughts on which you would pick and why.

I have the first generation Mixtrack Pro. It has a good sound card and has lasted for 9 years without any major issues. The only problem I noticed with it was the platters would not detect my touch properly in real cold temperatures. I still carry it around as a backup.
After that I used CDJ’s to timecode.
I’ve now had a DDJ-RX for a little over a year. With that I’ve also had no issues. It does have a better build feel and many more features. But, that also came with a higher price point.
I’ve tried Traktor and Rekordbox with them. Hands down VDJ blew them away.

So far I'm quite pleased, particularly when using this controller with VDJ. The flexibility to map/remap controller keys with VDJScript means this controller can effectively do whatever I want (I suppose the same is true for any controller).
I'm not sure if I'd like this controller as much with Traktor Pro 3 but, I'll know eventually.
