Looking for hole in the mighty armor ... I hope Native makes future upgrades so Tracktor can work in newer high speed systems (not just a 32-bit compatible environment to operate under 64-bit versions of Windows XP/Vista).

Sound
Allows customizing to work with many computer systems (external/internal; clock sequencing, etc.) without having to have a computer degree or much of a computer background. If you can install the program, odds are you will get it to work with your system. Plus, a lot of online help through Native Instruments. Many features that will satisfy the novice to creative DJ that likes to experiment or needs effects and an array of built in mixer settings found on the most elite mixers out there. Whether you are a closet DJ, week-end warrior or somebody hitting the road and clubs... this program could be the tool for you to take it to the next level.

Features
Did I mention all the bells and whistles and pre programed mixer effects found on systems used by the best out there? Want to add reverb, delay, flange (basic stuff) or be able to tweak the x and y axis of sound while being able to store pre slect start/cue points and loops? If you answered yes or "dun no" to any of the above, then Tracktor deserves a look. There are better programs out there but (1) big bucks (2) you would probably be using them for a living since the learning curve is steep.

Ease of Use
Rip in read more MP3 or I tunes... tell the system where you store you music and it imports all your songs for you. Will not recognize WMA files (go figure). Playing around with the program helps alot... don't be afraid you will not break it. I did run into a few time and output issues at first, the support team helped me pull my head out. I haven't bought the "training DVD" and have been doing great. I did catch a few online samples from Native and did like how they made that tool so anybody can quickly use the system without wasting a weekend in the manual.

Quality
I've used PCDJ before and Tracktor is in a league of it's own. Others can not compare. And the price... you cannot beat it!

Value
Big bang for the buck. Less then 100 bucks and you are rocking (depending on your computer system, sound card, etc..).

Manufacturer Support
Okay, I've only contacted them once. I was having a mental lapse and they were very understanding and helped me out without slapping me in the face with a standard insult such as "next time check out our FAQ section in our web page" (which I've got from other places).

The Wow Factor
Hell yes I want it. I will get a back up computer system for my rig and Tracktor will be on it!
