    Hell, my Torq does 4 decks
    The Traktor A10 has been out of production for a while now.
    And I haven't seen anything from Torq in about a decade or longer.

    Sorry I stand corrected! I swear when I looked last night it said 4 decks

    And Torq died horribly ages ago.
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    To use the Phases what would I need? What programs does it use? Do I need a newer mixture? A Laptop? Can I buy two now and then add two later?

    Any program you want + a soundcard that works with that program. It's a replacement for your needles, not for the soundcard. Laptop required as usual. Adding 2 more later possible = buy another unit if you use 4 turntables. The one with 4 "sticks" doesn't work with 4 tt's, as two are just spare. Note that with Phase you can't make needle drop into the track.

    I suggest you check the free mixxx.org, pideck.com or djplayerpro.com for iphone/ipad (paid).

    I use an Allen & Heath Xone PX5 with Native Instruments Traktor Scratch Pro and it's fantastic, I have an Innofader installed in the mixer.

    PX5 is an excellent mixer if you need 4 channels and effects + makes the dvs to normal vinyl switching easy while staying in the analog domain for the latter. A two channel version would be even more appealing if portability is needed.

    I never use effects and don't need 4 channels but I still bought it because it's a fantastic sounding mixer, it doesn't have that cold clinical sound to it that many dj mixers nowadays have it has a slightly warm lovely sound. There really aren't many excellent sound quality dj mixers as good sound quality as the PX5 if you absolutely don't want effects being on a dj mixer. Even the smaller Pioneer DJM450 has effects, plus I know using the PX5's built in audio interface I get lower latency than I could get with using the Native Instruments Traktor 6 audio interface. Using my Intel i7 laptop and the PX5 I can get latency down to 4.7ms without any adverse effects or problems. I think most dj mixers now have built in effects using effects has kind of become a standard thing most dj's do, I personally never use them. Also you mention portability but a smaller mixer is only about 4" more narrow and about maybe about the same less tall which really isn't a lot to be honest.

    That 4" doesn't matter since he's using four record players. As far as effects go I think he said one of the two mixers he already owns is a Pioneer DJM-800 which has plenty of onboard effects.

    Like i've already said I didn't buy the PX5 for it's effects I don't use effects, I bought it because Allen & Heath make excellent mixers with brilliant sound quality.
