    Default Shopping: decisions.

    So. I have found myself with a budget of 400 to get a great setup.

    I already have a padKontrol which i use for cue points and a m-audio fast track for audio I/O. Im looking for a solution to give me control of transport, mixing and effects.

    There are several things i have to consider. Firstly i'm going to university come october, so portability is an issue. Secondly i'm going to be (hopefully) using this in a club environment.

    I have two ideas so far.

    Option 1:

    External mixer, such as the Reloop RMX20 BlackFire Edition

    Midi controller for effects and transport, im thinking of the new faderfox DX3 or a pair of EKS XP5's

    The idea being, when i go to clubs i will use their mixer.

    Option 2:

    Get the much tried and tested Vestax VCI-100.

    Very portable and great for home use. But when i get into the club i face a choice of internal mixing mode or hooking up to their mixer for the benefits of external mixing, but have a crossfader and two volume faders that are sitting there unused.

    Delicious decisions....

    What would be better, or can anyone think of something completely different that would suit me?

    Thanks, Dups.

    I have to admit, the DJTT special edition is really tempting, plus i would be supporting a great website. Just a shame about having to pay shipping to the UK.

    You can find someone on the buy/sell boards who has already taken the pain of the import costs and is selling - I spot them all the time ...

    just buy the overlay, knobs and firmware kit from the store and d/l the mapping if cost is a problem? will work exactly the same and still supporting the site then

    edit; that works out at $75 (50 ish) + 370 = 420, as opposed to $550 (380 ish) + postage/import
