    Default controller or mixer?

    Hello everyone,

    Here is my question, I have a AUDIO 6 DJ and an DDM 4000 with two Kontrol One, but I'm starting to feel a limit to the possibilities of Traktor because I can mix only 3 deck compared to the 4 I have on my mixing table . I will soon replace my table, and I was wondering if using a controller 4 Chanel was not better than taking a traditional table.
    I really like the DN-MC 6000, which with my Kontrol One give me a control over my 4 chanel.
    But first I want your opinion

    Thank you in advance

    Hybrid maybe?

    Pioneer DJM-T1?

    It depends.....

    If you mix CD's as well as digital audio, you will probably need a mixer to use when you don;t have the laptop etc.

    If you only using digital, no reason to use external mixer....unless you like mixing externally.

    Sell everything except one of the X1s, buy an S4 or MC6000 and you'll be sorted. If you only use traktor, the S4's one to one layout will be very helpful.

    sell your audio 6 and buy an audio 10, stick with the mixer and the midicontroler!
    no midicontroler will give you what a club mixer does

    depends if you´re comfortable spinning without jogwheels. i for myself love to mix with a midicontroler and an external mixer. like a said some weeks ago. using the mixer in a club is always good, cause then you´ll always be present for the crowd. a lot of dj´s just using midicontroler are mostly at one end of the stage not using the mixer. but when mixing external you´ll always have the guaranty that you are in the middle of the booth and the crowd will recognize that. dunno if you get my point...

    hahaha both... lets just say this equation doesn't just apply to guitars haha

    the number of guitars I need is represented by the variable N. The value of N is
    defined by the relationship:

    N = X + 1

    where X = the number of guitars I own at any given time.
