I just wanted to ask if someone here has any experience with using a MS Surface Pro 2 or 3 as sort of laptop replacement for DJing. Im really tempted to buy one but still thats lots of money for me.
I think that this tablet-pc would be so cool to DJ with, eventhough a bit overpriced. Core i5 (i7 in the pro 3 I think), 8GB Ram, fast SSD as storage medium … Sounds great to me – and this in such a compact package! Maybe it woud not make much sense when using a SX like I do because the controller is already so big that it does not matter that much how big the computer is and maybe the screen is too small to actually run Serato properly (dont know the resolution of the screens … ), but thats really what Im asking for.
So has anyone here used one of these and could loose a few words on its performance and such in a DJ environment? – Would be really helpful ðŸ˜€
Yes you can use the Surface Pro 3 with Serato DJ and the Pioneer DDJ SX. YouTube has a few videos demonstrating this.
I would LOVE to DJ with Traktor running on a Surface Pro. Laptops just don’t like DJ booths. My only concern would be running the audio interface into a USB hub instead of the computer itself, but if the latency is agreeable it makes perfect sense to do it.

Very informative, and thorough review of using a surface pro and serato to DJ.
IMO the fact that the screen is so small really detracts from using it as your laptop replacement, as you’ll be using the touch screen to select tracks (unless you get the SP1 but I don’t know what prices are like, probably expensive because Pioneer)
ask him questions and he’ll reply too.

Traktor 2 Pro Download
May 21, 2015 My 2 setups include a NS7 (soon to be traded in for a NS7II) and an Akai AMX with AFX and Serato remote on iPad. I used a pc laptop once before but found it problematic and made the jump to Mac about 4 years ago. I haven’t looked back. I currently rock a 2011 Macbook Pro with 16gb ram and a 1 tb internal HDD (about 45% used). Traktor 2 download free. You can do so so much more with Traktor Pro 2, and the sound quality is great, I get compliments on my sound quality every time I do a gig. For even more fun, just add 2 Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 Performance DJ Controller like I did, to have full control of all.
