Some fantastic news for all DJs out there. Traktor version 2.5.1 software provides plug-and-play usability with Pioneer's CDJ Series (2000, 900 and 400) and the DJM-900 Nexus mixer thanks to its advanced HID support! This means that you now get seamless integration between these Pioneer products and Traktor software, allowing you to use your CDJs as hardware controllers for Traktor software and display all relevant information on the CDJ screen!

Owning a pair of vinyl or CD decks is not enough if you want to start DJing as you will also need a suitable mixer to link everything together and sit at the heart of your set-up. Because the mixer is unlikely to affect how well you can mix, I would say that it is more important to get a decent pair of decks, rather than splashing your budget on a super all-singing, all-dancing mixer and only having enough left over for a pair of poor decks (the exception to this case is scratch DJs who will need something sturdy with a smooth crossfader to complement some decent decks). However, the mixer is likely to have a lot to do with the sound quality of your mixes, as well as determining how many turntables you can connect and mix from at once, and some mixers may even includes additional creative features such as built-in effects and sample recorders/loopers.
