    Default NI S4 or A&H 4D?

    I would like to hear your opinions given the fact I already own tsp. Will the 4d be able to control sample banks effectively? I plan on using them in clubs and for mobile djing purposes.
    Thank you in advance.

    based on cost, and the fact that either way you'll be tethered to a laptop, I'd go with the S4. HID FTW!!

    Well we don't know when the sample decks will be brought to TSP so if want them now you'll have to go S4.

    Lets say we have the new software with sample decks and ignore the price is the 4d better?

    4D: More flexible mapping with any application, analog mixer, filters, smaller footprint than the s4, tspro certified already, 10 in, 10 out soundcard.
    S4: better jogwheels, tight integration with traktor, already labelled and custom for traktor, less weight than the xone.
    For me 4d is no brainer, you get top notch mixer with and endless options for ins and outs, sounds better. In the otherhand if you are going to mix internally and only use traktor, then the S4 is the no brainer.
    In response at your specific question which one is better, IMO 4D

    You pretty much nailed it. I'm gonna have to say +1.
