Novation Twitch? Alternatives? DJ Controllers
Old 23rd January 2012
Novation Twitch? Alternatives?

Back from NAMM, and seriously re-considering my current Launchpad+Nocturn setup for Ableton DJ'ing.

DJ'ing is VERY new to me, I'm only getting into now so I can do live performances of my electronic tracks.

A friend of mine works for Novation so I spent some time this weekend playing with the Twitch + Serato. I have to say, it seems VERY intuitive, and while I don't have all the customizability of using Ableton, it works far better (ex. I didn't understand cues till now... amazing!) and the volume+fx faders are very useful.

I'm curious about two things - first, it seems there are quite a few new DJ interfaces for Serato/Traktor/Ableton, especially new ones at NAMM. Are there other controllers I should consider? I'm not very interested in scratching, although I suppose I wouldn't mind messing around with it.

Second, should I try Traktor out? I was dead-set on going with Ableton because I was told it's better coming from a production background. However, the simplicity and ease of programs meant to DJ is changing my mind.
