    Default Why *NOT* to get a $4

    So...ahem...a friend of mine...

    Is seriously considering splurging on a $4. I want a quick lil collective of opinions from converts and or "haters" on any reasons you can think of why it *wouldnt* be a good idea to pick one up right now. (i.e. known bugs, lost features, up coming sales, up coming improvements or better products, etc).

    I know I know... "do your research" and RTFM and so on but Im just looking for some quick and dirty opinions.

    My...ahem...friend's setup is a i3 laptop PC, audio 4 and VCI-100se.

    PS: I think DJTT is still buying back the VCIs yea?

    There is no way to replace the crossfader or line levels. HUGE mistake in production IMO.

    Whats up DJ Acosta ! It's Kunal. Anyway yeah honestly the only drawback is the lack of replaceable levers, even the knobs are a bitch to switch.

    uhhh no? the S4 and X1 knobs come right off and you can replace em wicked easy as long as you buy the right ones.....

    plus they feel epic.


    only downside is the size of it.... but i guess they dont call it a "beast of a controller" for nothing.

    your "friend" will fucking love it --- as long as he thinks itll fit his workflow and whatnot.

    Size.

    I have both an S4 and VCI.

    As far as feel, features, etc. The S4 is in another league than the VCI. The VCI however is much more portable and "fun". If I had to choose between the two it would be the S4 without question. It's a pro-grade midi controller.

    Biggest draw back by far I think is that you can't change the native mapping in NHL mode.

    Idk man, I remember a few threads being opened up on teh S4 forums talking about it being a bitch to switch out. I haven't tried it since I think my S4 looks perfect the way it is, this is all based on what i've read :eek:.
