Higher-end controllers support multiple inputs from several players to integrate additional vinyl players and other devices. If you have the extra cash to shell out, then turntables & a versatile DJ controller can work together. DJ controllers are useful for DJs mixing strictly digital, as most support USB cable connectivity. They are lightweight and portable, which is great for DJs regularly on the go.What does this mean for you? With the DDJ-200 you will have to connect your speakers directly to your laptop/smartphone because this controller does not have its own audio connector outputs.

If you are tight on the budget you might be considering compensating for the DDJ-400 price by buying it used. Keep in mind that there are many risks that come along with getting used DJ equipment. The DDJ-400 comes with a Rekordbox software license while the DDJ-200 does not. If you want to use the DDJ-200 with Rekordbox you will have to have it connected to your PC when you use the software (the unit acts as a software activation dongle).For those who don’t want to use a computer for mixing, DJs can plug in their mobile device directly into the smart DJ controller with the help of the WeDJ, djay, or edjing mix applications. You don’t even need to use the jog wheels to add scratches into the mix with the DDJ-SB3’s pad scratch feature. You can add scratches reproduced from the iconic DJ jazzy Jeff’s custom scratch samples.
