CD/PHONO on deck 1 and 4 question DJM 2000 NEXUS

Hello,

So on deck 1 and 4 you have CD and PHONO input. on 2 and 3 it's CD/LINE.

What is the main difference between LINE and CD input? Can not find any info about that anywhere. I would think it's the same?

What i want to do is this:

Connect the output of my Traktor S4 on deck 1 or 4 so i can use the S4 as a extra deck to spice up my mixing.

I could use deck 2 or 3 for that but i prefer deck 1 or 4 as that is more convenient for my setup but i am not sure if i can connect it on CD input? Hence my question what is the difference between LINE and CD input actually?

 

Thank you so much

There is no difference between CD and LINE; they're both line-level device inputs.

Thank you.

Is there a way i can sync Traktor with the DJM 2000? 

Or Maschine?

I would connect the MIDI from DJM 2000 with the S4 or Maschine right? Any other steps? (Not using DVS) 

This afternoon i was looking at the Pioneer DJS 1000 and the Toraiz SP-16 so i won't need a computer to do what i want. However it's not really clear how that would work as 1 needs Nexus 2 and also i see them connected with the CDJs not with DJM 2000 and using a HUB for PRO Link so i got confused.

Do you have any ideas or suggestions what i could use best for what i want? I don't need live sampling from what i play, all i want is to play (pre made) samples and loops (synced) with my CDJ/DJM setup. If possible without a computer. Maybe a Maschine+ could work also since that is a standalone device? As i was already planning on getting one.

MIDI over USB would achieve what you're looking for; both the DJS-1000 and SP-16 can do that, and Traktor sends MIDI clock (see this guide).

Yeah but would require computer and i would like to avoid that. Specially when i buy a standalone DJS 1000 or SP-16. :-)

In that case, your two choices are to have the unit auto-detect the BPM by reading the audio signal, or you can use a device like this to act as a "host" to receive the MIDI from the DJM over USB, then serve it out over the 5-pin MIDI connection to the DJS / SP-16.
