Quick facts: test marathon and comparison of DJ controllers

All the facts, test results and recommendations: which DJ controller is right for me? Service providers value flexibility, hip-hop DJs, on the other hand, value large jog wheels for scratching and turntable tricks to perform their flares, scribbles or backspins, DJs with electronic playing styles sometimes require standard MIDI interfaces, just to try again synchronizing the drum machine via MID-Clock, others have already put their plates aside in order to attack the audience with touch-sensitive touch stripes. More expensive models combine or replace mixer and media player equally, some all-in-one workstations work with integrated displays, sometimes even without a computer, and still allow Beat-FX and Autosync or play seamlessly with the smartphone and the table via wireless MIDI or Bluetooth . There is a large selection, the decision needs to be carefully considered.
