    Default Pioneer's DDJ-T1 or Ergo?

    What are everyone's thoughts on the DDJ-T1 versus the new DDJ-Ergo? I've had my eye on the DDJ-T1 for a while, but do like the portability of the new controller by Pioneer. I've also noticed a nice price drop on the T1 unit, making it difficult to access if the unit is not popular or has not been well received by the DJ community.

    I spin Electro/House/Progressive tracks with two channels and sometimes do use the additional third and fourth channels for some loops and acappellas - which was the reason I liked the T1. I was thinking of getting rid of my analog set up and use one of these controllers instead as I found I mostly use Traktor along with my [2] X1's and the analog mixer and would like a unit that I can carry around with me, plug it in my bedroom, office, etc, and make and record some mixes.

    My current set up is as follows:

    [1] x Pioneer DJM-700 Mixer
    [2] x Technics SL-1210MK2 turntables
    [1] x MacBook Pro 2.26GHz/2GB Memory
    [1] x Traktor 2 Pro DJ Software
    [1] x Audio 8 DJ Sound Interface
    [2] x Kontrol X1 Midi Controller
    [2] x Samson StudioDock Monitors

    Thanks in advance,

    DJ LV

    ps Have people had any trouble checking-in the T1 at airports.

    Have you also considered the S2 or S4? I'd also suggest to look into Numark's Mixtrack Pro or N4. Don't sacrifice size over features and other possible options.

    DDJ-T1 is better than the ERGO (faders, buttons, encoders, pitch faders)
