its everything a dual cd player is, but better cause it controlls vdj. The buttons have a switch so they dont get stuck like the dj console. Its very professionally made and runs flawless in vdj with the dm3mapper thats in the download section. You do need a seperate mixer and sound card, as the dac-3 is just a controller. What you can do is use your dj console together with your dac3. So the dac3 will controll teh players, and the dj console will act as a mixer and as a second sound card.
Hope this helps

All you have to do is plug in the hdc2 and the dac-3 have the dac-3 mapper installed, and your on your way, everything just works right off the bat. I do also use the hdc mapper as well, to disable the jog wheels on the console and just about everythig else but the mixer portion

I would be carefull running two usb devices on the same computer. The HDJ requires full usb power to run. Perhaps you might need a powered hub?

So here is what I want to do.
laptop with external hard drive with all my music on it. dac 3 controller. DJ Mixer, and the external hard drive.
I have noticed that alot of guys on here are using the MK2 controller. I thought it looked poorley made and that no one who was a pro would use it. I like it i just wish it was rack mountable. What is the general feel with other jocks about the MK2.
Last question? does the DAC 3 have a headphone port or use it with the numark 6 chanel mixer and will it cue on VDJ.

VDJ 3.3 Pro has an option right in the configure screens to turn on the DAC 3 and thats it, it just works... I love it.
I used to use PCDJ software and purchased a package from PCDJ, the reason I switch to VDJ is because I could use the DAC 3 with VDJ and PCDJ software just sucks...sorry I just have no other way to express that company and their software.
