The DeeJay Trim and Scratch 4&6 is an interface with time-code DJ software that includes the Hercules DeeJay Trim 4&6 Audio Interface, Virtual DJ 6 LE Time Code software, 2 time-coded vinyl discs, and 2 time-coded CDs. This package is ideal for analog DJs who want to use their CD players and turntables to mix MP3 files, or for a computer-based DJ who wants to use their computer's music library when mixing on CD players and turntables.
What is time-code DJing?
Time-code DJing involves mixing audio files stored in a computer and controlling the playback with turntables or CD players. The process occurs when the DJ plays special time-coded discs on vinyl turntables or CD players whose output signal is digitized in real time by the audio interface. This signal tells the DJ mixing software where you are in the track and the speed of the playback so that the software can duplicate on MP3 files the actions the DJ performs on the time-coded discs.
The advantages of time code DJing are:
¢the DJ can use the same gears to mix computer audio files as CDs or vinyl discs with instant access to the computer audio library (meaning faster access than the time it takes to find and load vinyl discs or CDs)
¢the increased accuracy of the vinyl turntable or the jog wheel of the CD player (the wider the wheel, the better the accuracy)
¢and the ability to switch easily between computer audio files and vinyl discs or CDs.

First off this product is solid for what I need it for. I have the RMX and was getting latency with the connection to my Turntables. I got 2GB of memory and 1.5GHZ processor HP Laptop works like a champ. No latency now and the Video mixing in VD6 is off the hook. Why pay Serato $199 for a name and pluggin. But thats just my 2cents... Serato Vinyl works No problem. The mic preamp is ok nothing to backflip about. The software it comes with is very basic so upgrading will be necessary. Bottom line the response time is accurate and its affordable. You wont be dissappointed once you get it. Plus that powered 3 port 2.0 usb hub coming in handier that I though ;)!
I'm more than happy that I bought this product - I got a great price and it works GREAT! The only downside is that the software (Virtual DJ) is the learner's edition so it is VERY limited in what you can do. The professional version of the software (which I had to buy separately) provides many more features and would be a lot better of deejay trim came with the professional edition.
