Controller Clinic #34: Remix Decks vs SP-6 Sample Player http://www.digitaldjtips.com/2014/10/controller-clinic-34-remix-decks-vs-sp-6-sample-player/ http://www.digitaldjtips.com/2014/10/controller-clinic-34-remix-decks-vs-sp-6-sample-player/#comments Sun, 19 Oct 2014 13:34:02 +0000 http://www.digitaldjtips.com/?p=2074161 Reader Robert writes: "My question is about the SP-6 decks in Serato which I assume are the equivalent to Traktor’s Remix Decks.
