    Default Take your chainsaw!

    Really loving the looks of the screens from the S8, but IMO in the future, modular setups are the way to go.

    Please NI, make a modular version of your new beloved flagship controller (with integrated soundcard)...

    I agree 100%
    The S8 is HUGE and appears heavy. I don't need a mixer either.

    To pull it off though they would probably need to devise a way to send the data from Traktor via a linked LAN cable between the two units a la Pioneer Pro DJ link. Otherwise two USB cable sending what appear to be a LOT of data.

    And that's the problem with all-in-one stuff right there. It's easier to carry, probably easier to plug in, etc.. But people have their own preferences.

    I kind of whish all-in-ones had never been invented. They're just not ideal for gear whores like me.

    Indeed, everyone expects something totally different from their controllers. Designing your own workflow and being familiar with your gear became more and more important over the years. For a club, it's impossible to cover all the different dj's needs with one setup. One thing a club always will own is a decent mixer, and that's were the modular controllers come in. Bringing your familiar gear with you on the road to rock the evening!

    Yep.

    The good news about the all-in-ones is that people are being smart and putting in both RCA and balanced outputs, so you can run it through a house mixer or plug it sraight into the FOH & monitor systems.

    But that doesn't really help if you happen to really like-for example-the S8 but want a different mixer just because you want a different mixer.

    Except for the Freeze feature that was teased...and the screens....and the actually possibly useful touch strips....and the screens....and the touch-sensitive encoders (if they work)....and how they affect the screens....and the giant tempo knob that's actually a great idea.
