    Default If I could have my own custom controller it would have...

    So whenever I look for new gear, I always end up thinking things like "Oh I really like this ONE feature about this one", "I wish this had the feature of that other one", and the most common one "If this was with this, it would be perfect".

    So, here's what my controller would be/have, if I could have anything in the world...

    Firstly, it would come with custom software unique to this one controller which would consist of:
    Traktor's effects banks and interface, GUI, tempo sync/master/auto functions, remix decks, sample decks, clock (just a lot of Traktor features, I <3 Traktor)
    Deckadance's relooper
    Rekordbox's playlist interface
    Serato's scratching

    Then the controller itself would have:

    4 deck mixer
    6 "insta-fex", like on the pioneer djm-2000, built into the mixer (separate from the effects of the software)
    Full controller of absolutely everything the software has without having to switch to a different mode
    4, 4" by 2" LED screens, one to show the waveform/song info of each deck
    One 6" by 4" Led screen showing all the wave forms and song info
    Needle drop
    A 2" jog wheel for each effect controlling the wet/dry
    2, 4 x 4 grid of multi-color buttons for samples, cues, instant gratification effects, etc.
    4 9" motorized jog wheels that also have the LED displays of the cdj 2000/900 at the middle
    Independent EQ for each channel and master EQ if you want to control all of the EQs at once
    The ability to switch between isolator EQ and regular
    Slip mode from the CDJ-900
    Auto Loops from the CDJ-900
    Pioneer start/stop/cue buttons
    Dedicated booth out
    DJM 1000 outputs/inputs
    Built in adjustable arm like on Gator Cases (http://www.gatorcases.com/p/123101-4...ur-ns6-arm1-pl)
    Every part is replaceable (with exceptions of course, I wouldn't go replacing an LED screen if I didn't have to, but that's just me)
    Matte black finish


    I'm sure it would be massive, but it would be heaven. Haha. I probably even missed some features that I would want, I'll add them as I remember them.

    Maybe I'll photoshop a picture sometime.

    What's YOUR perfect piece of gear?
