1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Hello Steve,

    It depends on the type of control you need.

    I use turntables for gigs and at home but I'm seriously considering getting a Vestax VCI-100 for laptop use.

    I want one so when I'm away from home I can still get new tracks from the pools and practice. For example on holiday and business trips.

    well its really like that .... i dont know how i should continue but i think really to buy me some turntables and move on with this... traktor scratch.

    by the way what do you think: technics is too much even in price for what i wnat to do... i am thinking about a kind of the numark tt-200.....

    or tt 500

    If you're going to go with lower end Numark, go with the TT-500.

    I have a TT-200 for ripping vinyl but I don't think it's solid enough for serious DJ use.

    Well Technics 1200's are the standard.

    I use American Audio HTD 4.5's myself and they were they best investment I made for turntables.

    Two of those turntables cost the same as one 1200 in my area.

    The Numark TT-500's are a good midrange turntable.

    Do a Google on the TT-500's and you should find some good reviews.

    Yep the Citronic PD4.5's are the same turntables as mine with a different brand name.

    100% the same turntable.

    Also, the Stanton, Reloop, Akura, Ominitronic, etc. are all the same turntables.
