I've been DJing for around 6 months now, and I think I'm at a mediocre level (even though I've had a month off due to broken tone arm, moving house and a terrible supplier who still hasn't dispatched my tone arms that I've paid for after 4 weeks).
Anyways, I currently use Technics 1210 mk2 x2, and I wish to expand on the fact that I'm playing vinyl. I usually play Drum and Bass, however will sometimes throw in a bit of Breakbeats/Hip-hop and maybe dub step. I am fairly good at beatmatching, can get in some double drops etc, and over all fairly well educated in what to do and how to DJ. However I'm really interested in turntablism, especially after seeing various DJs like Captain Crunch and Krafty Kuts. I know a lot of Turntablists don't use either Serato or Traktor, but many do (Eg Jag Skillz, DJ Craze etc) and I've heard that it can in fact improve performance and efficiency, and make me learn quicker.
So which one do I go for, Serato Scratch Live or Traktor Scratch Pro? I've heard both are good, some people have suggested Serato is better, and some have suggested Traktor. Others have said no point spending the money on the software and hardware (each are around £500), however I wouldn't mind spending it.
