Perfect controller for the beginners
mrsvkn, 17.08.2020
It's been a long struggle for me to choose something to learn the basics of DJing and don't break the bank. This controller so far is the best option I found on the market. It's absolutely crazy that for such a low price you can get fully functional controller that gives you the ability to play proper sets and learn all the the fundamentals.

Use. Extremely simple to use. You've never tried to DJ and now drunk you want to do it first time? Easy! Sync and phase meter got you covered. Want to learn how to beatmatch using only your ears to become a pro at some point? Easy! Just disable the phase meter, sound wave view, stable bpm and now the only thing you can rely on is your ears!

Clarity. Nothing unnecessary in this controller: two decks with launchpads, EQ and set of 4 filters to make it happen.

Pros&cons. Only pros and no cons - you can't ask more from 250 bucks DJ setup...

Additional comment on Traktor Pro 3 software that comes with this beauty. I've been quite anxious about starting on digital, since "all real DJs have to start on vinyl". However, the easiness of use and almost endless possibilities of Traktor Pro left me without any regret about starting with digital. Moreover, even though I still plan to purchase turntables just because I have a small vinyl collection - my next gear goal is proper 4 channel mixer, two X1 and one F1 units from NI to make it 4 decks fully digital setup. The difference in range of possibilities and ways to play between simple two turntables setup and Traktor setup is just insane. If you doubt my opinion check out Speedy J and Richie Hawtin.

10/10 highly recommend

It's the best choice in that price range
fennec, 01.09.2020
I have been using the controller since the end of 2018. First, I want to note the reliability of the USB connector - this is the first thing you come across. Before the S2 MK3, I used the Numark Mixtrack Pro II controller and now I'm really happy with the ergonomics. No difficulties with the first installation and setting up software - it saves a lot of time and nerves. The sound quality on both outputs (RCA and mini-jack) is excellent. I used the controller with an old Lenovo W541 laptop under Windows 10 x64 with constantly updating OS - no errors or crashes for all time. All controls (faders, encoders, knobs) are tactile friendly, when it be able to push it's understood by touch. My advice: understand the Shift button modification for a smooth experience with the controller out of the box – use it to quickly navigate the track and extend the pitch range when you play unfamiliar tunes and want to do your best for the first time. I'm totally satisfied with the price/quality and plan to extend my gear park by NI S4 asap.

Very good for beginners and drunk people
MindPhuq, 06.08.2019
I use this to mainly have quick fun by myself or with my friends, without the inconvenience of carrying or wiring mixers, turntables and etc. For this task or for learning basics of DJ-ing this is a very good controller. It is really well built and feels sturdy. All the buttons and knobs feel really good and clicky. I only don't like the hotques/sample buttons at the bottom, but lets say that they are OK. Few other things that I find annoying:
- Most of the people have said this already, but yeah - why removing the effects knobs, when the MK2 already has it. It can get quite boring using only the mixer FX ( you can use only 1 for each channel). You could use custom mappings for free, which are not ideal or invest in a Kontrol X1 (which is not so cheap) to manage this. Also there is not an IN/OUT buttons for the loops, but you could do a mapping in Traktor for this pretty easily.
- The pitch slider is small and beatmatching could be quite hard. Set this in your software to +/- 8% and it will be better.
- The sound coming from this is somewhat on the quieter side. Both from master and monitor
- Very limited I/O. Only 1/8" jack for the headphones, instead of the bigger more professional 1/4". Also on the back there are only unbalanced outputs (RCA) and AUX, no XLR. I recommend using XLR to RCA cable for connecting studio monitors. The DAC is fine, though. The sound is nice, just a little bit quiet.

All in all, I don't regret the purchase. I totally knew what I was getting when ordering. If you need something more serious you should look elsewhere (and invest more).

DJing has rather murky origins, and there are many people who claim to have been the first to mix two records together.

Turntables and mixers are not just playback devices, but important tools for any DJ. So that DJs equipped with only a laptop are spared juggling with their mouse, DJ controllers have been developed that convert analogue feeling into the digital setup.
