    Well, I have one of these, but there is a HUGE issue with this controller that the review does not address and potential buyers should know:
    I am running the MK4 with Traktor and ASIO drivers at 10ms latency but there is a 3-500 millisecond latency issue between the monitor and output channel, put simply, if you beatmatch using your ears then you will be 1 – 2 beats off when you ‘bring’ in the beatmatched track, therefore it is NOT POSSIBLE to use the monitor channel and headphones to beatmatch a track rendering this controller essentially useless.

    Another thing that you will need as DJ equipment is a DJ laptop stand. There are many options in the stand itself. The designs are very innovative and the controls have to be very user friendly when you choose them as the laptop is mostly the heart of all DJ equipment. This equipment is to be chosen very carefully as they are available in a number of models. It is always better if you choose a light weight one as this will make it easy for you to carry it around. It is available in most of the leading stores which deals with computers and its related accessories.

    Early in my career I dealt with 45’s and albums. Crates upon Crates of discs that I lugged to and from the van. Most of the albums had only one song on it that I would be using. Many discs I had not used for months. You have got to have them all because after all, tonight might be the night that somebody requests that one song on that long forgotten disc. I have backaches to this day just thinking about it.
