Used in the home studio and in club gigs, so versitile and fits nice in my laptop bag ;) Set up was easy and using both Traktor & VDJ in a 64 bit Windows 7 environment wasn't an issue either! I have the Intel Core I3 processor that wasn't supported at the time of purchase and it works like a champ ;) Thank you PSSL for the price match [...] Customer/PSSL Promoter for life, two thumbs way up :)

This product is a great entry-level controller. It is easy to set-up, install and navigate. It is fun to play around with if you are a beginner or novice and can certainly teach you the basics of DJing. I wouldn't recommend this to an intermediate of Professional DJ as it lacks many necessary features such as a full range of effects, sampling, and professional software. The plastic chassis can also be seen as a con, as it's structure is subject to wear and tear.

    Comments about Serato Vestax Typhoon USB DJ MIDI Contoller with Audio IO:

    I initially bought this and set it up with a PC. It was great for three months but later experienced issues. I called the company and was told that it was not compatible with Centrino. I'm not exactly sure how it worked well for three months if it wasn't compatible but I listened and went out and bought a Mac. I did a gig and the music started to skip and slow down as if it had little power (it was really embarassing). I called the comapany and they said to use a better powered hub. But prior to this it was working well. So I'm going to get an AC adapter for the hub but the typhoon is also USB powered so I'm going to get an AC adaptor for it as well and hope that works. Also, it's not really good for scratching (they should have just excluded that feature) and the cue volume is terrible. It's also very sensitive to bumps, etc. I'll be fair and say this is my first experience with a controller but next time I'm going high end.

    It's a great mixer to learn on, and a great deal for the price, although my crossfader is beginning to break after 6 months of continuous use. On the left side it will sometimes not sense it correctly unless i push up on it while i am moving it.

    Comments about Serato Vestax Typhoon USB DJ MIDI Contoller with Audio IO:

    its a good all in one bundle for beginners(meaning you never played with anything prior) best used for back yard barbecue. cons: out the box platter is laggy and sound card have 32ms latency. that means detail scatching won't be possible with this unit. bending or mashing songs together is possible. you can use this as a back up system.

      This is a great entry-level controller. It is great as a piece of hardware to get started on. It is portable and easy to set up. It has an audio interface, making it a great value. The Traktor software is great. It's only drawbacks are a lack of controls for effects. This can definitely be improved.

      I really like the Vestax Typhoon. I was using Serato for a few years but got tired of lugging turntables to gigs, so this is a great alternative. My only complaint is that the included Traktor LE software is not as detailed and intuitive as I got use to with Serato Scratch. I think once I upgrade to Traktor 3 I'll be pleased. The Typhoon is a really nice piece of equipment and does exactly what I expected it to.

          Answered on 2/23/2011 by Anonymous
        • A:

          The Red Output knob on the Right Corner controls Master output volume, and the gain bands on each deck control the volume for each deck respectively . I would suggest a high powered pair of bookshelf or computer speakers. RCA's are the simplest way to connect speakers directly to the unit, however an adaptor can be purchased to adjust to pretty much any speaker output.
