As the best online DJ Shop in Ireland djbox.ie have some of the best known and most loved DJ Controllers in stock and ready to deliver nationwide immediately. Whilst djbox.ie do sell lasers, DMX lighting, LED lighting, speakers and many more products the DJ Controller market is red hot right now. With Native Instruments, Denon, Pioneer, Hercules and many more making new controllers there has never been such a demand for DJ software and hardware. Software of course is also important and djbox.ie also sell Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2 software as well as accessories such as upgrade kits, Traktor Scratch Pro and all of the other DJ Software from NI. Whilst we do sell Native Instruments software many of the controllers on the market today do come with a “bundled” software, but it is generally a light version without some of the features you might want. Always be sure to see what version of what software your preferred controller comes with. Here is a quick outline and guide to a few of the controllers in stock in the djbox.ie right now:
