    Default Trying to think of something to add to my setup

    So with Christmas coming up Im hoping to get some gift money and of course I want to spend it on something to add to my setup.

    I was thinking something like an LPD8 or an X1, but Id like to hear some other recommendations and your opinions.
    So what do you guys recommend? Im prob looking to spend about $100-$200 maybe a little more

    depends on what u want to control i guess. sample decks/fx? an x1 would be great for that, tho for a bit more a K2 might be even better. u can't go wrong really with an lpd8, they're also uber cheap ofc. u could get a classic midi fighter - tho an X1/K2 would be more control for the money.

    yea thats why i like the lpd8, bc its pretty cheap but the X1 pretty much meets all my needs for fx, loops, cue points, and samples so right now Im really leaning towards the X1. And yea I love the K2, do you know when theyre gonna start selling?

    yea thats another reason I like the lpd8 because Id be able to have the midifighter mapping and then i could still map samples, loops, cue points, etc

    yea I love how it looks but I feel like it might be too much stuff, with the X1 and LPD8 Id be able to map everything I want and be left with nothing without any problems but with the K2 I know once I get it mapped the way I want it I know ill have alot of things unmapped. Really leaning towards the X1 right now because it already comes with everything I need and then I can map sample decks to midi mode

    the x1 is def a good choice. personally i can't see how i'd have any controls left unmapped on a k2 tho, in fact i'm sure it won't have quite enough, but should be fine for me along with a launchpad and a single scs.3d or something.

    i intend to use the k2 quite differently to how u want to add a controller to use with your vci tho. i want to use it to give me full levels+eq+kills over 4 decks, the buttons for play/cue/sync/faderfx(on/off) for each deck and probably use the top encoders+button for dual duty between filters and tempo/pitch bend or something. not much left after that anyway

    well for my purpose Id have things unmapped for sure, but if I were using it the way you plan on doing so then for sure I might not have enough.
