    jesus dude, to be honest you have over kill with 2 midifighters. though the mixtrack sucks, upgrade to something better, with a full mixer section.

    How much cash do you have to burn? It sounds like you got some disposable income there...

    If you got the cash I would go for 2x 1200's preferably the m5g's cause they have digital pitch controls, add in a mixer like the denon x1600 for timecode control, 4 channels. Then something like 2x SC2000's for the other 2 decks.

    Otherwise just get an S4 like everyone else recommends.

    not sure how any of that relates to what the OP actually asked about...

    personally i wouldn't buy any other additional controllers for now, unless you really want to do 4 deck mixing.

    you have stacks of controls available - all you are really missing is some pots/faders etc to control eq/levels on either decks c+d or sample decks.

    a cheapo controller like an lpd8 or djm101 would give you some additional pots you can map - but personally i'd look again at all the controls you do have and get into some creative mapping...

    If you're doing everything in the box, and LPD or a nanoKontrol would be good - the mute/solo buttons on the nano can be mapped to anything (I have mine mapped to FX on and FX select to scroll through them) You get plenty of knobs and buttons, the only thing you don't have is a horizontal fader, but you already have the mixtrack. If you don't need jogs, then I wouldn't worry about getting a better controller like S4 or the like.

    Maybe a Twitch, but I've heard mapping can be less fun that using it with Itch, ymmv.

    I have Launchpad and nanoKontrol and that's it, 4 decks, Traktor 2 Pro, done and done.
