At most I would use a single modifier if I were to make a mapping like that and that would be shift + loop size encoder = gain. And as a good portion of people use autogain that isn't even needed.
I hear what you are saying, and I thought the same thing.
Still, as per my experience after a few months, I still feel that you cannot really perform on 4 decks comfortably on the K2.
It "works" technically, I agree.
Really scratching my head with this now tried routing traktor through the K2 to test it didn't get audio from it , tried routing the audio from my computer didn't get anything either on both K2's i have . I tested the channel I was routing the K2 into on the db4 and it works fine so either both sound cards on the K2's are busted or t's something else . Anyone any ideas to try .

is everyone happy with the volume output on the K2?
I've had it since june, didn't pay too much attention while playing out with it but at this point I think I just don't believe the output is sufficient at all, it's caused too many issues, especially when not having access to a master mixer and not doing soundcheck because of showing up at the club mid-event.
Having the gains on maximum on the mixer, and increasing the master output usually almost does the trick but not always... the channel levels are still half of vinyl and cdjs volumes
I use both outputs (Rca and front jack )and do external mixing, playing mostly house and techno.
I'm now considering getting another soundcard (like an NI Audio card for dvs) which really defeats the purpose of having bought this controller.
ps: this post sounds like a rant and perhaps it is, let me make it clear I find the levels usable but not "good enough".
Well the output volume really is significantly (!) lower than that of a CDJ or an NI Audio soundcard...
So you have to turn up the gain in Traktor a lot, and as well on the mixer.. If you then play a track with comparatively low volume (worst case..), you have nowhere to go as the gain may already be turned up all the way.
