why not?

No the real question is... why would you?

I mean if SSL has too many features for you, then you might just wanna go out and just buy a crate of records.

Dont hate man!!iam in love with my SSL :) i just wanna use SDJI with my controllers for small gigs.

if you have and sl2/3 why not just use regular serato. if you have the controlers and want to play with them, why do you have sl2/3?
DJ-SHUFFLE 11:56 PM - 29 September, 2011
i keep SSL for the serious gigs not for small partys

What controllers do you have? Why cant you just map them to SSL?

+1 Compatibility would make my sl3 more versatile.

Serato DJ Intro is all about plug and plug for controllers. I witnessed it today - install and running with a controller in 90 seconds. I doubt you'll see support for external interfaces any time soon, if ever.

Exactly - which is why if you look at SSL there are plenty of controllers that will plug and play with SSL and use the SSL audio for output.

If you take an Denon HC5000 and rack mount it with a 4 channel 19" rack mount mixer... into a 8-10 space mixer rack... you have basically all the compactness of a controller, but with analog equipment... that is fully compatible with SSL. Then bring long your CDJ or TT's when needed in their individual cases and connect them with your 19" 4Ch mixer.

Its really a very flexible setup. You can use ITCH or SSL w/ the HC5000. You have your analog capabilities to hook in analog players. And honestly, the HC5000 is currently hovering around the same price range as most of the Intro Controllers. Definitely something to consider if you are already a serious DJ, but looking for a compact option.

thank you very much chad :) i have a hercule rmx sound card a midi controller but i dont think that i can ma into SSL...

If you look around your rig, you will find equipment you could sell on ebay... like your RMX and possible mixer. For instance, the RMX is selling used for $150. The Denon DN-HC5000 for ITCH for around $200-300. For $250-325 you could get the Denon X500 19" mixer. Not sure what mixer you have now, but check your resell value to soften the blow.

It is a big upgrade in sound, compatibility, and flexibility with the software. I would definitely look into it - you may find you could use your controller setup a lot more. You back will thank you! lol

+1 Iwas about to uninstall traktor until i saw it only use limited interfaces
I use ssl for giging but it can't do auto play without gaps like for small gigs or when the club is just starting and you want to sit at the bar until people come

I don't know if you all have tried this bu you can easily use your laptops headphone out jack to play a continuous playlist as input into your mixer or controller aux in (like all ITCH devices have). In iTunes you can control the universal fade in and out timing as well. Therefore making it very radio like with no dead zones in the transitions. Given alll you need is iTunes and a 1/8" to RCA cable, it's a very cheap way to solve this challenge.

I have done CD release parties where I needed to play the continuous play mix album before my set, socialize to pass out materials and do give aways. This works extremely well with little to no hassle.
