    Default Anyone using Reloop RP-8000's and Traktor? Maschine Mikro MK2 as a controller?

    I just purchased a xone: px5 as an upgrade from a NI S4 MK2, and have been searching for some decent turntables for a DVS setup. I couldn't find acceptable 1200's anywhere for a respectable price, so I picked up a single RP-8000 for a steal to try out. I won't get it for a few days, but I figured I'd start trying to figure out how the reloop mappings work, and if anyone has come up with a good custom mapping already.

    The PX5 doesn't have any software integration, so I'm also working out if I'm going to pick up a controller, and if so, which one. I already have a Maschine Mikro MK2 that is sitting idle. Is this still working well for anyone out there? I suppose my other options are the NI X1, F1, or D2... or maybe the xone:k1. I'd like something that can operate the new step sequencer. Am I missing anything else out there that would work well with this setup?

    Thanks in advance,

    The PX5 has MIDI control. It's in the manual. But the Mikro will do a fine job as well. FYI the K1 will be able to plug into the PX5 using X:LINK, reducing your USB cables. You can also get them pretty cheap these days (I've seen them for around 90). The Traktor step sequencer is also completely mappable.
