Hi All,

Ready to think about a turntable to go with "Djay" ( A app from the Apple Store).

WE have looked at the Vestax VCI 300 or the 300 MK-II.

Or any other other suggestions. (to be used by students).

Regards,  John

,,many many many DJs are using the Vestax VCI 300 because they can use their Serato library software. Basically, it is a decent controller with the basic Serato software.

Hercules makes an inexpensive controller as well.

Thanks for the suggestions,

Still trying to keep it simple enough for the students (and myself) so everyone is having fun and hopefully learning a little.

Again thanks,  John

Why not just download Virtual DJ? The home edition is free, and if you are just looking for the basics, it would be perfect. The mapping system is fairly straightforward, so you can actually map the keys to start/stop, cue points, loop control, pitch control, etc.

You can also download a demo of Traktor Pro. But it shuts down every 30 minutes. The mapping is also less intuitive - but very powerful if you can learn it. I've put together solid sets using just my keyboard before.

They're both free... give both a shot before making up your mind.

Again thanks to all for the suggestions.
