    Default S4MKII Not Scratchworthy? Alternatives?

    In my humble opinion the jogwheels on the s4 are unsuitable for scratching. I don't necessarily want to have to switch over to an entirely new controller... is there one out there that is just for scratching? That I can link with the rest of my set up? Im fairly green but appreciate all help.

    Buy a pair of turntables and use DVS. The S4 comes with Traktor Scratch.

    The S4MK2 is IMHO one of the better (best) controllers for scratching. NHL mode is super tight.
    I can scratch fairly well on the S4 (in as much as I'm a ham fisted scratcher anyway).

    Any of the Pioneer controllers I've tried is as bad a Pioneer CDJ.

    I agree with the fellas above. Get yourself a pair of beat up 1210's for cheap.
    (or a pair of turntables of a different brand that someone else may recommend)

    Time to buy some turntables. Either get a pair of used 1200's or a new set of atlp1240's.

    - DAW - Cubase 9 Pro, FL Studio
