DJ A-Trak explains what digital DJ software is in this great NPR piece here.

There are really two brands and they essentially do the same thing – Traktor and Serato.

We teach Serato in our intro classes because it’s free and easier to use. Traktor is clearly the line most (not all) pros like to use – but maybe it’s just because it’s less common 😉

We teach both and love both.
