Any DJ with experience on CD turntables and a basic understanding of DJ software could step up to this controller with their drive full of tracks and be spinning a set in no time at all.

Now, with the proliferation of DJ sites that sell mp3s, the availability of inexpensive and durable laptops, and some really good MIDI controllers and DJ software, the CD turntable may be going the way of the turntable; they will always be used in some form or fashion but will eventually be pushed aside in favor of something smaller, cheaper, and more flexible.
