    Default thinking about hanging up the vci...

    and replacing it with 1 or 2 nanopads along side my dicers

    OR

    another pair of dicers.

    wanna do something along the lines of the midi fighter mapping ean made a few months back, plus just getting a bit, well, tired of my old vci now.

    very aware of the dodgyness of nanopads, but i just can't resist the touch pad.

    thinking the 4 dicer option would have a nice, compact, very mobile thing to it, but need something like an x/y for 'better' effects control. if i get another dicer set, that's one per deck. if i wanna go nanopad i'd need 2 (plus a million back ups) one for a and one for b, with dicers on c and d. so dicer def seem cheaper option... just wanna try something new.

    figured page one can deal with cues and play/stop, page 2 loop and page 3 effects, with a total of 30 buttons (including shifts) on each dicer this should be doable...

    don't know, just thinking out loud atm...

    ideas?

    that new vestax pad controller might serve you better than the nano pad

    ....I returned two in two months

    or an LPD8... well solid.

    IMO though, i couldn't hang up my vci, not now it's SE with arcade buttons, whole new lease of life

    Also, with the wealth of new controllers out there are you sure you can't find one that suits?

    Plenty of options outside of the nano pads that would choose first. What about midi fighters?

    Still in 1.2 FW, always used my own maps so never bothered with updating it, lol.

    Looked at other controllers. Problem is I know what I wanna do, but a lot if the 'vci clones' shall we say, have layouts specific to the flow they designed for. Which turns custom maps (or mine) into a mess of modifiers. Which is where something like nano/lpd/dicer gains an advantage.
