    Default Ouch, my brain.

    i hate when this happens to me:

    It starts off with telling myself, "I want some cue points and loop controls, something like a midifighter". Then I think, "want faders too, ooh and 8 knobs, and an endless encoder".

    cuz now, everything from a dual diy midifighter scheme, to mpd32, to nanoKontrol + nanoPad.

    So. lol

    any suggestions for a controller that has:

    4-6 faders
    8 encoders
    and 16 pads???

    ive thought of:
    midifighter
    mpd24/32
    bcf2000
    Pad+Kontrol

    less than $400

    APC 40 is going for $299 and I think you can find them for $250.

    What he said. APC 40. What program is this for? Will your style of play benefit from having extra hardware? Are you on top of your game with your current hardware? If not, I'd say work on new techniques and tricks with the stuff you already have...

    this is for Traktor.

    I have my ddm4000 w 2 channels and midi, and wasnt able to comfortably configure cue points, which i have yet to actually learn to use for that reason.

    initially, what planted the "thought seed" was thinking about having to take my ddm into a crowded club booth.. so I wanted a good additional AND stand alone controller.

    I'm wondering how easy it is the modify a midifighter into using those expansion ports for 4 faders and 4 encoders.. Hmmm.???

    I want a pitch, fine pitch, key, and fx fader(s) for each deck, and 1 of the 4 encoders could double up as a song select encoder if its a Push-button encoder.
    would be cheaper too...

    I don't think it's that hard if your moderately capable with electronic kits.

    Nope And I believe I posted when they went on sale a couple of months ago. It is kind of strange that it seems to be a US only deal.
