    Default Kontrol S8 + single jogwheel dj midi controller: which?

    I'm waiting for the Kontrol S8 to come out.
    Looks like it got all the bells and whistles I wanna have.
    Though... I'd miss a solid scratch option.

    So, I'm asking u guys, which single jogwheel dj midi controller would u recommend next to the Kontrol S8?

    Atm, I think the DJ Tech CDJ-101 is a great alternative, though I don't have any experience with these units.
    Feedback welcome!

    I woudn't call those 101's "a solid scratch option", mate... They're only 5" in diameter - very small...

    These S4 MK2 jogwheels are actually smaller than 5".
    Bigger = better, if u ask me.

    And no displays on the unit itself, which is THE reason I want the S8.

    Man, yeah, that's a great question.

    Is it safe to reckon the S8 should work with DVS?

    I wouldn't assume it.

    No it's not. Responsiveness is better. Bigger is just preferable.
    The jogwheels on the S4 are incomparably better than those on the ones posted above.

    I think all the Native Instruments products are better responsiveness-wise with Traktor due the usage of HID.
    Tell if i'm wrong.

    Anyways, for a bargain of €25 with 3 years warranty, I just ordered 2x CDJ-101 here: http://www.thomann.de/nl/dj_tech_cdj...controller.htm

    I'll let u guys know, how they work when I did some testing - To be continued.
