    i got the virtual dj software,the mixtrack [not the pro] , and my laptop, what els do i need like speaker and amps and stuff like that to do a school dance gig??? for the lowest  amount of ca$h???

  • Alan

    I just bought traktor pro with a numark mixtrack to start getting into the DJ world. Does anyone know the best way to get jumpstarted on this? (besides youtube)

  • Aphro79

    Im pretty new to mapping but and I did see using the jog wheels to control 3 effects but I was wondering would it be possible if I created toggle buttons on lets say my laptop keyboard so if i pressed Z (just a example) it would allow me to control effect 1, X for effect 2, and C for effect 3 and pressing one would activate one effect but if none of them are pressed then all 3 effects would resume. If anyone understood that please reply lol

  • keithace

    just got one…i like it so far…remapping some things though…

  • Skatepittsstop

    I started out with a Numark Mixtrack Pro, great unit for the money but be sure to get it with Traktor! Virtual Dj is lame in my opinion

    Ean, the quality of the site’s articles continue to fall as DJTT becomes larger. I feel as if your controller business’s success has allowed this site to become a second priority. Look at the photos for instance. 3 images, none with which provide any real understanding in the design or layout of the Mixtrack. Not to mention, the appear to be amateur shots when compared to say, the pictures in Chris’s Pioneer DDJ-S1 review. The content of the article is short and uninformative, making only basic descriptions of the controller. Honestly, it’s so basic, it almost sounds like it was written by someone relatively new to Djing.

    You have a lot of people on your staff. Maybe its time to hire some professional writers?

    a winning  combination:
    mixtrack + audio 2 dj   After a night of painful mapping, this unit works flawless, it easily beats more expensive consoles like the VCI-300, hercules, M Audio xponent, yes the plastic like feel of the knobs is a minus but compensate with the spaced layout and the resistance in the knobs and faders.

    the bad

    * no detachable USB cord (I always worry when I put it in the bag)
    * plastic like feel of the knobs 

    the good 

    * fully mapable (if mapable is a word)
    * the backlights are awesome (I even have some sync with the beat so I can tell if the tracks are unsync just by looking at the controller)

    Can we talk about why anyone would design a controller with the master fader tucked right in between two narrowly spaced volume faders? I know that’s easily mapped to another control, but lordeeee…..

  • Dylan Thomas

    Bought one of these dirt cheap. Apart from a broken cue button (from getting too enthusiastic) which I could easily fix, it’s been great.

  • Obleezy

    I picked one of these up brand new on amazon for $99, I LOVE IT.  Easy to transport, looks way more expensive than it is, performs way better than you’d think for such a low price. I use it on Torq as they recently released a patch for it that allows full integration of the mixtrack with the software. Highly recommend it.

    Why wasn’t the one WITH the internal sound card reviewed?
    You know, the one Numark came out with INSTANTLY after when people were like “WTF, Why you no sound card?!”

  • http://twitter.com/80sbham 80s Night

    About time some one at DJTT dig into this!  I have been a loyal Numark Total Control user for years (already on my 2nd one) but the platters on it are awful. 

    The Mixtrack looks great and they fixed the platters!  Too bad they couldnt squeeze a few more knobs on it so it’s more like the Control…

  • PrimateCuts

    Nice review, you really should mention the mixtrack PRO though, that actually has a build in sound card. So that point does not have to be on the contra list in my opinion.

      oh yeah there it is, my bad….still shouldn’t be on the “BAD” list as there is a version with and without a sound card.

    Sounds great for an entry-level controller.

    Now I’ll know what to recommend.

    I got my Numark MIXTRACK as open box at Guitar Center for $99.  I love the controller.  I use it for practicing, mix tapes, and performing live.  With all of the new 2 channel controllers coming out, the MIXTRACK or the MIXTRACK PRO should be an option for anyone in the market for 2 track mixing controller.  One major complaint is that the USB cord is not removable.  I always wonder if squeezing the controller into my bag will bend and break the cable connection.
    Love this site, read it all the time, but this is not a great review.  The product being reviewed is actually spelled wrong in the title of the post itself.  :(

    I got the mixtrack pro and novation launchpad. Really good cheap but fun combo. Really good traktor mappings out there too for both controllers. I have full control over tp2. Plus with novation I have MF effects, awesomeness !!

    There might be some modding potential for the mixtrack too, but I think the thread for it on the forum is dying.

    I found this review hard to read – it felt really poorly written and had some really awkward wording/phrasing and grammar.  Dunno, maybe the writer only took one pass at it, or maybe theyre just not experienced at writing reviews…

    I hope I don’t have to point out this grammatical error.  Also would be nice if you expanded upon how this controller is “more practical than a Vestax VCI-300″…

    I’m not sure if this is the same controller, but I played around with a low end Numark controller at Bestbuy a few months back, and it felt WAY, WAAAAY cheaper and toyish than my hercules steel. Granted, the steel doesn’t have touch sensitive jogs, and it sucks for scratching, but it definately makes up for it in every other aspect. I have beaten and slapped it around so much in the last few years and it still feels like new, faders, buttons, knobs and all. I can’t stress how good of a controller the steel is for the money. I honestly don’t know why djtt has not done a review on it.

    • Jamie

      it doesn’t have it beat on the price.. It’s twice the money and still has no built in sound card :-/

        Last I checked, one could be had for as low as $170. Definately worth the difference though. But I wouldn’t recommend the rmx as the soundcards in those are not that great. If you can get past the lack of touch sensitivity, and don’t care to scratch, the jogs work great for FX. I have different Beatslicer settings mapped to my cue/play/stop buttons and just reach one finger up to move the jog to change the sound. Not a big deal.

        Otherwise, every bit as good of a controller as the original vci.

    I just got one of these. Every once in a while if I scratch a LOT, the jog wheel will stop responding, and I have to switch scratch mode on and off. But nobody else seems to be complaining about it, so maybe I just got a bum one. You can scratch and juggle with it! I actually get less drift using the mixtrack to juggle than I did with relative timecode vinyl.

    • Knecht_r

      i seem to have the same problem. it only appears occasionaly though.

  • kiet kat

    I got this controller when it came out in august 2010: the buttons are sturdy enough for everyday mixing, but I like to pound the buttons like a midi fighter which ended up wrecking a couple of buttons, but it was a really easy fix: it is like a russian tank cheap sturdy and gets the job done.

    great controller if you like mapping the crap out of it, i think i have re-mapped at least half the controller allready. My only complaint is that it doesn’t have channel meters but small complaint for a 150 dollar controller

      Don’t spend and extra $80 on the Mixtrack Pro sound card or spend and extra $10 . Make a smart investment by buying the Native-Instruments Traktor Audio 2 DJ .
