    Hey all,
    I am really interested in learning how to dj and beat match etc. I am running the ibook in my signature. I want to mix with mp3 not vinyls. Can someone recomend me a good but simple program. Also does anyone know of some CHEAP(preferably under $200) mixer or pads that will work with the said program. I think it will be clumsy to scratch and mix with the mouse. Any recomendations will be sweet.

    Unfortunately, mp3 mixing and the work "cheap" don't Mix....(pun :p )

    Ideal set up would be Serato Scratch made by RANE...(drool) but it's crazy $$

    Next would be Stanton Final scratch, the original program, also $$$$

    after that would come Native Instruments Traktor DJ studio versions 2 or 3.

    Anything other than those programs will be silly little apps, more for fun than production.

    I would recommend trying to find a cheap version of Traktor DJ 2, since they have since moved on to version 3.

    They are all tough to learn at first, and none of them are under 200 $.

    Good luck.:eek:

    Anything made by Stanton will be affordable and still quality.

    CHEAP, well there's the Hercules Mix Console, I think it comes with software.

    Never used it, or know anyone who has.
