DJ set in your hand
Plug this in to your ipad and voilá! Rock that house party with a professional dj setup. With the ability to cue the next track as with normal DJ gear, and with the effects available at the touch of a dial, you really can mix it up at your next gig. Super portable, super sounding, super cool product.
Simple and Portable
I've been using an APC 40 MKII with traktor for a while now and I've had my eyes on this controller for months. The default setting includes all the basics which you can easily see, although I didn't realize that it lacked buttons for browser scrolling, cue, etc. I solved that with an app on my iphone. It came with a code for Traktor LE 2. Basically it looks good, it's pretty small and portable and it has a sound card with RCA outputs. I haven't tried it with the iOS versions of Traktor but they look pretty powerful. Remember that if you're going to use this with a laptop you're going to need another controller for browsing and cueing, fx, etc. It can also work with midi in midi mode.
Simple DJ mixer with filters/EQ.
I use this with Traktor for DJ-ing and recording mixes. Very compact, high quality, works great! Probably a bit limited when used by itself if you get into remixing and production, but that is easily remedied by adding an F1, X1, etc.
