How about using Traktor with the Audio sent out into Abelton via JackPilot (Mac)?

Then if you usin a midi controller....just remap the volumes and X fader to use Ableton's, not Traktors!

Then you can use VST's etc.

And that would solve what issue?

It hardly becomes more convenient to have two interfaces to keep track of, and IMO it would have to bring some very major advantages to be worthwhile.
Not only would it use more CPU than just running Live, you would also depend on three applications instead of one, increasing the risk of bugs and instabilities.

Keeping it simple should IMO be high priority with a live or DJ setup. Of course you might want to add complexity sometimes when the advantages outweigh the benefits, but I cannot see much benefit at all by running Traktor trough Ableton.           (``.(``.(``..`).`).`)

Well....a macBook Pro handles it!

You then are able to do nifty tricks with VST's.

Smartmixers....output FX.

if you have the midi mapped don;t even need to have LIVE showing.

The reason for doing this is so you have the best of both.

Traktor and can even sync the two.

It depends what you wanna do I suppose.

I like to push boundaries....not conform to them.

Nifty tricks with VST's is possible without using Traktor, so the question is what Traktor has to offer when using it as a playback device to route trough Live?

The main advantage with Traktor as I see it simplicity and ease of configuration, but that is negated when using the kind of setup you suggest.           (``.(``.(``..`).`).`)

It depends what you want to do.

I LOVE Traktor and its ease of use.

I JUST want to dump some samples and use a few VST's.

My solution works 100%.

Each to their own i guess.

anyone have any suggestions for DJ software that runs in Ubuntu Linux (9.10)? I'm downloading Ubuntu Studio and Ardour right now, but have no experience w/ either. Any help would be appreciated.           "Every generation needs a new revolution." ~Thomas Jefferson

psy-junky use deckadance, thats for me best software for virtual djing..
Again I stand by the serato cause I heard from TS users that they have problems connecting it on existing setup in the club.. And a lot of users nagged about stability, ur lucky u dont have any problems, nice to hear that..
But personaly I dont like the looks of Tractor, I didnt like it when it was virtual djing program, nor do I like it now when its TS, though it looks better, more minimalistic..

Does Deckadance let me use two individual sound cards with one channel on each?

U can use dual sound cards with Deckadance when u use it through ASIO4ALL.

Best DJ software? Serato, no doubt about it..

Serato Scratch 2.0 ++++10000000 indeed...

Waiting for Bridge to be finalized in it, then having ableton run inside serato - that's gonna be a major....

It depends a lot in you style of mixing, but for psy i will go with traktor.           "The dedication to repetition the search for nirvana in a single held tone or an endlessly cycling rhythm is one of electronic music's noblest gestures."

i was using live 8 but on a whim decided to try live 7 instead, and am now using 7. The warp system is much cleaner, and the cpu use is lower, so everything runs smoother. I like Live because it syncs warped tracks automatically which frees my attention up to be reassigned to blending and/or effecting, and lets me enjoy the music more than I did with cdjs, which required more attention and care just to maintain a sync. Id rather be a dancer than an engineer.

Live does require you to set up your tracks ahead of time, setting warp points and bouncing; Im still working on importing all the tracks i want. Im basically making a master file with all the tracks i would ever want to play in it, and 2 channels with 3band EQs (tho i may add mre for non-trance stuff). Its time consuming, but once its done i have a library file that i can pick thru on the fly, ready to go           .

You went back to live 7? that's weird, everyone who I've talked to is very fond of 8's warping once they get used to it. I find it very easy to warp with 8 o.O

but yeah, ableton is the shit. I love mixing with live and my apc 40            If you want to make an apple pie from must first invent the universe

I'm really surprised there's isn't any dj software around to really compete with Traktor.
Most dj applications look very amateuristic to me compared to Traktor.

Image Lines Dekadance & NI Traktor scratch for EDM dj's & Serato scratch for RnB/Commercial is what ive normally seen n heard of. I Started with Virtual DJ back in day (now Numark Cue) but personally i LOVE Traktor, eventho with Dekadance u can load up samples n vst's, Traktor has quite a few kickass onboard effects and when used with a Mac....its kickass!!!
