    With an s2 you really have no need for an X1, you are not going to enjoy the Maschine unless you plan on doing production. Go for the F1

    These are all cool controllers but what aspect of Traktor you wish to expend by adding the new unit to your setup?

    You can use it Live with Maschine software (Jeremy Ellis, many techno artists, Deadmau5 at one point), Traktor (Shiftee, Craze, others) or other software (Enferno).

    Mashine Full or Micro if you want to make your own loops and beats to mix into your sets. Like to just add loops and stuff to your mix( not own made) get F1. The X1 will only double most of what you already have on the S4.
    DJ setup 1 - Pioneer XDJ-Aero, Pioneer DDJ-SP1, Mixvibes Cross, Macbook Air 13", Pioneer HDJ 2000. DJ setup 2 - NI Kontrol F1, Z1, X1mkII, Traktor Pro2, Macbook Air 13", Pioneer HDJ 2000 w. Production - iMac 21.5", Motu 828x, Icon Qcon Pro + EX, Nektar Panorama P4, Propellerhead Reason, Mashine Mikro(drum programer in Reason)
