  • Its unique...

    As reviewed by Jacob Berryhill on 3/7/2012

    BACKGROUND: HOW WHY I BOUGHT THIS Well, it?s a long story, but I?ll try to keep it short. I?m a huge fan of Traktor and I?m a huge fan of Pioneer mixers (especially for a studio environment, they just sound way better than any other mixer I?ve every heard. That includes Rane Empath, Vestax, Denon DNX1600, Traktor Kontrol S2, Technics SHMZ1200) I?m currently running a DJM900. Due to this sound quality concern, it rules out just buying a cheap all in one controller like the Kontrol S2, Kontrol S4, or others. But if you are not super tweak about sound quality, I would just get an all in one Kontrol S4 or S2. But if you already have a mixer, or are geek about a big expensive mixer you end up where I?m at. The next piece of the puzzle is a track player / controller. My problem is I can?t justify the cost of a CDJ. They are too expensive for what seems to me to be an inferior controller compared to a turntable. Of course looping queing functions that come on a CDJ are built into the Traktor software, so you don?t need this function in a CDJ when using Traktor software. I have a pair of Technics SL1210M5G. I love them, but the Tech?s are big and take up a lot of space in my currently limited mix environment. Also, I?m mainly a minimal techno guy, so I don?t often need a 12? jog surface, because I basically never scratch. So, I wanted a small controller that works well with Traktor and gives me a pitch slider and a jog wheel for the times when I do have to manually beat match (like working some mashup tracks with a live drummer that just don?t grid very well in Traktor). That?s what this controller does and there isn?t much else out there like this. You only need one to control two decks, but two looks way cooler and you can control all 4 decks that way. So if you want a cheap small controller for playing tracks in Traktor and you really want a pitch slider and jog wheel, for manual mixing, this is about the only option. COMPARED TO THE KONTROL X1 CONS Now you may ask, how does it compare to a Kontrol X1? Here?s my feeling. Not very well. I wouldn?t toss my Kontrol X1?s. (I have a pair of those too) The rotary encoders are endless type and have a very coarse and clicky feel. So for example when I rotate an encoder to bring in an effect, the affect jumps about every 6%. This is too coarse. You can hear it in the mix too. It sounds like the effect is coming up in small steps, rather than a nice smooth continuous dry / wet adjustment. The Kontrol X1 works on the order of 1% adjustments, and the rotary encoders are fixed stop and feel very smooth. Also you have to rotate the encoder too far on the SC2000, maybe 1.5x as far as the Kontrol X1. This means you can?t snap the affect on and off with one wrist motion. You may have to grab the knob twice to make a full adjustment from full on to full off. This really kinda sucks. EQUALS The SC2000 is equal to the Kontrol X1 in terms of the quality of the buttons. The layout is very effective for the package (a small controller). PROS The plus side of this controller is the fact it has a pitch slider and a jog wheel. Of course the Kontrol X1 doesn?t have these. The SC2000 has a really solid feel and weight as it has a steel chassis all around. Its surprisingly solid for the price. HOW WELL DOES THE JOG WHEEL WORK If you think you are going to be the next battle mix master on a 4? jog wheel, I might have some land on Mars to sell you. I?m sure you?d want at least a 7? jog wheel if you really want to scratch. All pros that I?m aware of still use a turntable and possibly DVS software like Traktor or Serato. So the jog wheel is not great, but roughly comparable to a S2 or S4 controller. I?m no scratch guy, so it?s fine enough for me for most stuff. You can use it to pull / push the track or scratch, which is a nice feature. WHO SHOULD BUY THIS. If you already have an audio mixer and really want a Traktor controller with a pitch slider or jog wheel. WHO SHOULD GET THE KONTROL X1 Everybody else that either will never use a pitch slider (such as only mixing with auto sync) or is using another player controller like a CDJ DNS or Turntable. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE How about a Traktor controller with a 7? jog wheel and the same build quality as a DNS or CDJ . Encoders, the same style as the Kontrol X1. Pioneer, Denon, can you feel it? : ) Thanks!

  • Game Changing Device without Software Support

    As reviewed by AP on 5/9/2011

    My production setup is DAW based. I wanted to use samples and incorporate authentic hip hop scratch sounds. The jog wheel is hi-resolution and feels great. No software is included and if you want it to work with Traktor Pro like advertised you need to get Traktor Pro and then find and download the settings from the Denon website. If you use Ableton, deckadance can function from within it as a VST but deckadance 1.9beta does not support the device natively as of this date. That would have been my first choice but now I'm stuck waiting. Traktor Pro works great and you can synch Ableton's MIDI clock as a temporary solution.

  • Excellent tool for the casual DJ

    As reviewed by Edward B. Mendez on 12/22/2010

    I was very impressed with the performance of this unit with Numark Cue 7.* The set up was extremely easy and the unit worked perfect right out of the box. If you are a bedroom DJ or even small venue DJ, this little controller packs a big punch if you are into music mixing and do not need to scratch heavily or perform table tricks (turntablist) although you might be even able to pull that off.
