Pioneer DJM-T1 or Traktor Z2
so I have loads of records to rip to my computer, not only that, once I've done them all I would like to make some mixes. I only have one 1210 deck and want to have a virtual deck triggered by the mixer, I noticed you can do this with the T1 with it having play/pause and hot cues.
Seems you can also do it with the Z2, I have a few questions before I make a purchase.
- I have a 1 year old Lenovo PC with windows 10, are both these mixers supported?
- The Pioneer DJM-T1 I've seen comes with Scratch Duo, what's the latest version of Traktor to be supported for this mixer?
- What the latest version of Traktor to be supported for the Z2?
- is one of these mixers better than the other? I was drawn to the Pioneer because it seems to do more without a separate controller.
Sadly I can't help you with your specific questions. Though I assume both mixers work with Traktor Pro 3, as long as the OS yo are using supports the devices.
Both Z2 and DJM-T1 are discontinued. Any reasons you want those "old" mixers?
I know you want a few midi buttons, but have you thought about using a more traditional mixer + a small midi device? Zone k2, Traktor F1/X1. Those midi controllers can be bought for cheap used.0
Thanks for the reply, I would like a scratch mixer and that doesn't leave much choice.
if I got any old mixer and a cheap midi controller I would need an old fashioned box to get my turntable to work with Traktor and don't want to go back to that.0

Looks like it’s all good for the T1:
I always liked the look of that mixer.0
The T1 mixer I have seen comes with a Traktor Scratch Duo licence, do you know if I can upgrade to Pro 3 for £44?0
Well, I bought a used Z2 for £395 GBP.
Turns out it was bought from Native Instruments last year, refurbished.
USB input felt a be strange when I connected, a big click is that normal? Thought it might be some king of anti fall out mech. I noticed loads of USB ports for sale on eBay! Do these need to be replaced every now and again?0
Heavy pricing, i paid 400€ in total for two Z2s. USB Ports are compatible with a lot of devices and depending on usage and handling they can break.0
