Native Instruments has introduced a DJ Hardware Guide, an extensive online resource that provides DJs with practical information about how to best choose, set up and operate the components of a computer-based DJ setup.
The guide understandably has a strong NI Traktor bias – so keep that in mind if you rely on it. The guide ties in with the recently announced TRAKTOR Ready compatibility label, and includes a buyers’ guide with information on all controllers that are guaranteed to work with Traktor.
The DJ Hardware Guide explains the basics of digital DJing in a newcomer-friendly way, and details different setup types ranging from compact laptop-only setups to professional time-code-controlled systems. Special attention is given to different types of hardware controllers, and how they are best combined to form a DJ system.
