Hey, Kyle here. I just picked up the Numark Mixtrack Pro brand new from Guitar Center. For only $250 it is a great choice for a beginner DJ. It has all the controls you need to learn the basics of mixing and scratching. It comes with virtual DJ software and the whole thing is a simple setup. The software has everything you need to load your very own songs and play them through the Mixtrack Pro. The mixer has all the basic volume, crossfader, cues, effects, etc. The touch sensitive control wheels are accurate and do their job, but sometime they feel somewhat cheap only because they are plastic. You don’t get the feel of aluminum platters but you get what you pay for. Don’t forget this is Numark quality we are talking about; It is not cheaply made. For the price you cannot go wrong. I would definitely recommend this to any beginner DJ who is looking to purchase this type of product.
Cons: The plastic jogwheels are obviously not as nice feeling as aluminium. Plastic play/cue/sync buttons make a loud click when pressed (rubber buttons would be better).
