    Default Thoughts on a setup

    I'm looking on getting a setup, whereas till now I've just been using my computer, a maya44, and a mixer. I want a bit more control, so here's my thoughts, please give recommendations and thoughts on the setup.

    I'll be using a 2 Channel mixer and 2 turntables that I already have... What are some good needles? Because I need some new ones

    Traktor Kontrol x1 - For FX and play pause sync functions
    MidiFighter - When available I'll grab this guy for cue points... But in the mean time...
    Korg Nanopad - - using this for cue points. Should I use the Akai LPD8? I just don't like that it has less pads

    Soo... Computer, turntables(two), audio 4 sound card, 2 channel mixer, traktor kontrol x1, and Korg Nanopad/Midi Fighter. My only problem is that I would like some jot wheels for fx control, but I would rather not have a built in mixer like in the vci-100 (and the vci-100se and things like the otus are too expensive for my taste)...

    What do you think?

    better choose the lpd8, the xy-pad on the nano one tends to break easily, as i have heard recently!

    I have both the nano pad and the ldp8 I think the akai is the better of the 2 the butttons are much more resposive and the x y pad on the nano is fun but not as responsive as a koas pad

    tbh for 50 the xy pad is perfect, get what you pay for at the end of the day, and it makes effects fun

    with DVS you will be entertained and busy enough for this amount of additional control. I'd say Traktor DVS and one controller (like X1) should do. although i can see usability in midifighter as well - it depends what you want to do.
