    The first. He uses a pair of X1 to control traktor (not sure if he jumped on the K2 wagon)

    He's using the Maschine software and the step sequencer for drum loops.

    Just had to add to this, Most of the time Dubfire will use 3 X1's. (Not sure why) , But i don't know if he has started using the K2 yet.

    I didn't get a chance to play with one (yet). Still:

    A soft plastic outer shell encases a coated metal faceplate on the K2. All of the nutted pots and rotary encoders represent professional build quality, and the nutted construction of the knobs means the the inner circuit board is protected more against outer trauma to the knobs. The four 60mm-throw faders possess the signature Allen & Heath smoothness, and their tops are indented generously, making them a pleasure to use.
    In addition, the 30 rubberized buttons feel fantastic. They are soft-touch LED rubber buttons with a click, yet they are firmer and feel more robust than the looser buttons on the Kontrol X1. In short, despite the plastic casing, Allen & Heath maintains its usual high standard of build quality on the Xone:K2.

    If you're going to buy a maschine so it'll play a clap every 16th beat you can do that with the sample/remix decks. In fact if you want play out drum patterns you can also do that with remix decks. Where the Maschine really comes in handy is if you use it for production and already have stuff programmed into the software.

    It's more useful for the step sequencer- most of the people I see using it (for techno, minimal, and house at least) don't seem to have any prearranged patterns and use it to improvise drum fills in ways you can't with the remix decks. Dubfire for example has a group loaded with claps, a group loaded with hi hats, rides, etc. then just uses step mode and inputs patterns during the set. Hawtin does the same.
