    Default Numark OmniControl for 175?

    Should I go for it? I was thinking about getting something nice like an S4 or something, but is that a really good deal for 175? How are the jogwheels?

    i now have an S4 & TP2 & wouldnt look back. I started with an Omni & traktor pro. The jogwheels are only good for searching a track & are not touch sensitive. But i set mine up to work only with a shift key mapped as i found they are very easy to knock when playing causing it to go outa sync. As stated above With a decent mapping they are hours of fun (albeit only as a two channel mixer) Although i could see it becoming limited with TP2 on its own. At that price i would grab it, Throw it together with a midifighter for the meanwhile & save for the S4. But if ya hav the cash then grab an S4.

    I had a Omni about a year ago. If you have the patience and a steady income I would wait and go for the S4. However if you are just starting out/ can't afford an S4 at the moment I would consider looking at the Hercules RMX. The cue, and play/pause buttons got very irresponsive on my omni.

    I'd hang on for the S4. I had an omni control but within quite a short time I felt limited by it.

    Sure at 175 whats the resale on it? If you can sell it second hand for that?? Why not get it as a temperary fix?

    You can't resell it for that.

    lol, only just realised. Was automatically thinking in pounds.

    re. How are the jog wheels:

    appalling compared to more modern touch sensitive ones.

    Jog wheels are completely shit just use them to cue up songs and my cue button is slowely playing up but other then that its ok, its weird that my hercules mp3 e2 has no problems bar a broken encoder but that was due to dropping it
