I am a newbie and am willing to buy a DJ controller. I have read an article about the Best DJ Controller under 500 but I am confused between Pioneer DDJ and Numark MixTrack. Can someone guide me, which is the best of these two?
Not sure which model DDJ you're talking about, but Pioneer generally has a really good reputation as top-tier hardware. However, I would say my experience is that the software is a bigger consideration than the controller, especially at the lower end when there aren't as many controls on the board and you have to rely more on the software. All Pioneer controllers come with Rekordbox, and the Numark MixTrack has VirtualDJ. I have limited experience with both, and I'd say that VirtualDJ is very beginner friendly but has a lot of limitations as you improve compared to Rekordbox. Personally, I've decided to use Serato and I'm very happy with it, but neither of those controllers support it. So between the two you mentioned, I would probably recommend the Pioneer DDJ. Also, welcome to the site!
Both Pioneer DDJ and Numark MixTrack are solid choices for beginners. Consider your preferences and specific needs. Pioneer DDJ is known for its build quality, while Numark MixTrack is praised for its affordability. Ultimately, go with the one that aligns best with your priorities and budget. Happy DJing!
