Alright, here is more info, because even i'm confused on what I want now...
I do not scratch.
I play mostly electronic music ranging from deep (older) dubstep to complextro. I willing be playing alongside other DJs who will play more or less more electronic music. I really don't plan to do anything too crazy in my sets other than the X1 tricks i have up my sleeps or the odd acapella. I focus most of my time as a DJ working on my own productions, as that is what I want to be able to play out consistently someday.
Some use controllers, come CDJ's, no way for me to know what a set-up might look like at a gig.
I currently have an X1 and a mixtrack pro. The mixtrack pro is useless to me (well, gonna keep it around for rowdy house parties), as I mainly use the X1. My main concern here is space; I can't just slam down an NS7 or S4 and expect it to fit as every DJ night is a lineup these days.
So I figured I'd go the X1 and mixer dealio as; if there is already a mixer I can slide right in and do my thing, if not I'd want to have my own mixer ready to go.
I do not have a soundcard yet as the Mixtrack provides this. So my shopping list looks like a mixer and a soundcard, or as you guys brought to my attention some mixer have a sound card built in; such as the T1 or Z2.
Soundcard is a must, as I will need one for production and generally a good thing to have around. If I buy the Z2, can it's soundcard work in the EXACT same way an Audio 8 would? So if I'm at home producing and need a soundcard, I could use it? If I'm at a gig, and there is already a mixer hooked up, could I use the Z2 as just a soudncard and use the current mixer instead of having to reconfigure everything?
Cause the way I see it, the Xone 22 + Audio 8/10 costs just about as much as the Z2 itself give or take.
A mixer + X1 would be my setup, and if there is no mixer at the gig (You can't just rely on that these days), and even if there is I still need a soundcard. And it seems logical to kill two birds with one stone and get a top notch mixer specifically made for the program I use instead of a somewhat outdated mixer with a soundcard.
