    Default Native Instruments Abandoning DVS System?

    Does anyone here think NI are abandoning the DVS users? Do you think they are getting away from it? So I have two technics with a traktor Z2. What direction should I go either pioneer or serato or should I wait? Can't really afford the pioneer upper models. I can pay atleast $1000 for a good mixer.

    1.) No.
    2.) No.
    3.) Why do you even need to change your setup?

    NI are shifting Traktor into a live production/DJ hybrid program (in my opinion) but I have no doubt that DVS on Traktor will stay whatever else they do with Traktor. Stick with what you've got and don't worry about it.
    Live rig: Denon Prime (5000M's)
    Retired: Denon x1700, Denon SC3900's, Traktor, Technics SL1200's, my vinyl
    Wish list: Some Roland Aira stuff.

    Seeing that the S8 is DVS compatible and the new Rane MP2015 got certified I really don't see them abandoning it anytime soon. It doesn't make much sense for CDJs since you get HID on the modern ones but there will always be a place for DVS as long as scratch DJs use it. Vinyl has been making a comeback in the past few years so if anything this makes more people have TTs and broadens the potential DVS customers.

    Not sure what you are after in a new mixer but if you need a 4ch certified one at a lower price point check the Denon DN-X1600 ($999) or DN-X1700 ($1300-1400). Alternatively, you can get one of the older certified Pio mixers or score a decent deal on a used one.

    I've been rocking a Denon Dn-x1600 for the past couple years and I can tell ya Its the piece of gear that i love the most in everything i own... Just works flawlessly ! i bought it used and its still going as strong as the first day I had it.

    In the beginning i wanted a Pionneer but Just couldn't afford them... and Traktkor certified on all 4 channels !

    I always thought a 4 channel upgrade to the Z2 could be a great addition to NI lineup

    I just want a Z4 so people can say "Z4 I got this mixer...."


    Please don't ban me Z4 that pun. I have other redeeming qualities!

    lol at the Z4 pun

    In all honesty, there isn't enough of a market for a 4 channel version of the Z2. This is mainly due to Traktor's compatibility with so many other 4 channel mixers lready on the market (including he industry standard DJM's).

    NI will never abandon DVS users. Don't worry.
