    Default Whats next for Traktor!!? Behind in controller market now!

    So now we have Pioneer DDJ-SZ, i must admit im still in love with Traktor but if theres no new controller from Native Instruments by march im gonna ditch Traktor for serato and the new DDJ-SZ.

    Pioneer have really done a great job with the SZ and yeah its exspensive but for years of use and for a tool that will help you bring out the best in your ability and provide ridiculous amount of fun its a small price to pay!!

    So NI we need a game changer from you otherwise i can defo see many moving to serato!

    Don't you think that practice, effort and research will bring out the best in your ability?

    You reckon? Not dissing the power or functionality of the SZ it but;

    a) its huge, don't fancy carrying that around, kinda goes against the purpose of controllers
    b) for 1750 / $2400 I'd rather buy a pair of nice used CDJ 2000's
    c) Judging from your post you want NI to make a controller that costs nearly three times what the S4 costs, why on earth would they want do that and price themselves out of the ,market?
    d) A single lump of $2400 plastic can go wrong easily, at that money you want separates to limit your exposure to damage / kit failures.

    i bet NI can live with one less happy customer

    and the ddj-sz is by no means a portable solution at all...

    What is the purpose of controllers?? well its different for everyone, i for one wouldnt mind the size im not planning on carrying it on the bus but should fit in my car nicely if i needed to take it to a festival not like my Cdj's.


    Don't you think that practice, effort and research will bring out the best in your ability? .... do you think you could perform a great set without??...2xTechnics 1200MK2, DJM 850, Dicers, Zomo MC-1000, Sony MDR-v700, Sony VAIO
    Production: Ableton Live 8 and a mouse, MOTU Ultralite, Sennheiser HD400, Sony VAIO!!! its fair to say that practice has a big part to play but without decent equipment you dont get decent sound or reliability or extra toys to be creative with.

    Honestly back to 2 turntables and 2 x1's - best decision I've had in years in terms of equipment. It helps that it's a permanent install though
