    lose the s2 and get a 4-channel controller or add an f1 for a remix deck. no use in picking up more gear for just controlling 2 decks...

    This is a daft question and one which gets asked in a different way several times a week here. None of use knows you, we don't know how you play, what you play, what you need to improve or anything.

    Think about what you need before asking internet randoms what to spend your money on. For example if you asked "I feel like my setup doesn't give me enough control over FX, I want something a bit more hands on and tactile" that would be a much more appropriate question. I don't mean to be shooting you down, but nothing helpful will come from asking what you just asked.

    Full english is totally right. Reword the question for better answers.

    Based off of what you have said though, keep your S2. Don't start selling gear, especially for a 4 deck controller if you only mix 2 tracks. Grab an F1 if you want wicked remix deck magic, get an x1 for more FX control, get a midi fighter if you wanna hammer hotcues and FX, get a midifighter 3d if you wanna look cool doing it, or stick with what you have. An S2 and a launchpad should do you well unless you are doing some really advanced mixing or fx/sample triggering.

    And why
    Personally speaking, I think you should sell what you have and invest in a pair of early 80's cassette recorders (like we used to load games onto our 48k spectrums from,) a preternatural sense of timing and a barrel load of luck.

    Why? Well, I think it would be very impressive. What other reason could there be?
