I got this today.
I bought this because I already owned Trakor Pro and it wasn't clear whether some of the other DJ controllers would work with Traktor.
The unit has kind of a flimsy plastic feel and the faders aren't very smooth. I question how well it will hold to use. The manual is terrible, it is more focused on the software than on the controller itself. I couldn't get the mic to work at all and I had to google it to find a description of how to make it work. Once I got the mic working it became clear how bad the mic control is, the gain control is on the back of the unit, you can't control mic volume from the front. You have to setup the mic input in software and turn up the aux in - in the software. My mic wouldn't get very loud. I would also like an xlr mic input since that is the professional standard.
I am sending this back and getting a Denon MC4000 that has 2 mic inputs (1 xlr and 1 - 1/4") with volume controls on the front of the unit. It aslo turns out the Denon will control Traktor.
The control of the software and music is OK.
