"I’ve used both [Traktor and Serato] before and I was probably one of the first DJs who started to play with Traktor. This was about 8 years ago, so back then I had some technical issues. Later I discovered Serato which I found much more stable at the time. Again, this is from 8 years ago... I can’t make any assessment of how it is now. But I really enjoyed using Serato."more
Dj Premier talks about Serato in [this interview](http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul07/articles/djpremier.htm) with SOS, saying, "I think Serato [Scratch], which I just started using, is more dedicated to the DJ who has paid his dues and has carried billions of records. I play what I have gained through my whole knowledge of music and my library"more
We use it for all live performances.
Combined with Inklen MixEmergency, Serato Scratch Live allowed me to totally streamline my workflow, leave the DVD wallets at home and produce & remix on the road just before a gig! Even though it is now superseded by Serato DJ, because of it's rock solid performance and reliability, SSL is still my software of choice for larger gigs. I have now retired the use of SSL in favour of Pioneer Rekordbox
