Great content

I've used Traktor Pro 2 for a couple of years, but was only touching the surface with the options available and that are explained in simple terms here. I had to watch a couple of the video's a few times to get my head around things, but Traktor Pro 2 is a huge programme with so much customising available. I never knew how to get the most from remix decks, but I am really impressed at the simplicity of how they can offer my sets a great improvement. Huge thanks Shortee

Get Endo

She's really good but get her a simplified script with more in depth information. I mean why are you having her go through every model if she's not demonstrating them? She's got way too much info and way too little time to give anything but a vague explanation of controller S4 or if you use S5 while standing on one foot and you can call me john and you can call me ron and you can call me don and if you want to learn more watch the next 15 minute trade show advertisement of every NI Traktor controller ever made.

Response from Customer Service:

Hi and thanks for the review! It will help us with future content.
We do not write the script for DJ Shortee as her experience with her craft and teaching others is why we asked her to be part of the Groove3 family. Her teaching style is based on what has worked for her and her students in the past.
I'm happy to pass on your thoughts to her for future consideration.
