Maschine Mikro or Traktor F1? dilemma
Hey guys, need a lil help here.
I'm new to production but the recent price drop has made me look at the maschine mikro. I understand that the mikro can be mapped to traktor pro for sample decks triggering and hot cues (those extra pads will be useful) and I know that it isn't built exactly for that purpose, but that's probably how I'll use it most of the time. I'll probably explore a little bit with the maschine software. Is there any way to feed the audio from the maschine software to traktor pro? so that when I spin live, I can record what I do with the mikro together with my decks.
integrates with traktor pro fully with remix decks
able to record through traktor pro
slightly more expensive @ $279
does not work with any other software
price cut to $249
able to map to traktor pro as a midi controller (mainly for sample decks and hot cues)
can be used for production
not able to record with traktor pro?
no integration with traktor 2.5
any help would be appreciated thanks!
Personally if its for djing I would get the F1 if its to add to another controller you already have for the main decks etc. on traktor.
although personally I would forget Micro and if it was me i would save up and add the full maschine to my set-up, but that would be more so for the ability in my productions and the performance aspect if I wanted to maybe add in my own performance in to a dj set, as I am sure you can also hook up machine and traktor to work along side each other, don't quote me on that, as I have not overly researched it, but i am sure I have seen this mentioned.
So all depends on your wants really and what you wish to do, So in this order for me it would have to be: 1) a Main traktor controller, 2) F1, 3) Maschine not micro, as an extra for performance but not important for djing over the first two options.
By the way the F1 should also work as a standard midi controller.
