    if you sell your vci300 you should have enough money to get a vci100 and a decent soundcard (NI audio dj 2 or above).

    See i don't really want a vci-100. My friend has one and as great as it is. I'd rather something a lil different.

    Was thinkin a kontrol x1 + a 2-channel mixer ?
    Any input on that ?

    only used my numark stealth control for 3 months, it was first controller i used with traktor and it was perfect for getting to grips, but i also had it mapped for 4 deck control in the end, $200 including shipping

    Out of your listed options I think I would lean towards the MPD32. If you can spend a little more I think the Maschine would be a better choice because of the added functionality.

    Without knowing your style of mixing and what music you play, it is hard to give advice. Personally I wouldn't want a controller without jog wheels, but that is me. You can make just about any set-up "work" but some will feel more comfortable than others.

    Maybe if you tell us what you like/dislike about the VCI-300 we can give you better guidance.

    Hmm yeah, can't afford the maschine unfortunately.

    Have you any idea on the kontrol x1 ? Because if it was all i had to carry to gigs with my laptop i'd be pretty happy out.

    sorry, overread the "don't"

    as i understood, the x1 was designed to use with a DVS (timecode vinyl and a mixer) to use FX.. i doubt it would be enough as a standalone controller..

    like pilmat said, tell us what you disliked about the vci300

    Ehh i'll be playing electro/house/minimal.
    And tbh i just don't really like serato itch, not having effects to play with bugs me.

    Why not keep the 300 and get an x1 for effects?
