    Default APC20+BCR or APC40 + BCR or APC20 +frankenstein

    So I decided its time to get rid of my trusty Hercules RMX/BCR/NANO setup and move on to something with even more flashy lights and fadery buttony madness.

    Now I already have a BCR which is being totally underutilized which I could sell. I just cant seem to decide on a mapping and its been relegated pretty much to FX only and never really 100% comfortable with any layout I came up with for it.

    Do I Keep the BCR and go with the APC20 or is the 40 worthwhile... the build quality makes me think yes but i'm on the fence about it.

    Lend me your views ... bear in mind i'm "thinking" of gutting my nano and trying to get the bits together for a custom controller from a broken 16ch mixing desk which I could probably get if I sell the BCR.

    Oh Choices Choices, will they ever cease !!

    If you're happy with the BCR, I'd just get an APC20 and keep it.

    No actually that's a lie, I'd get the 40 and keep it, but the sensible man would get the 20.

    I think thats just it, I'm was never 100% happy with the BCR

    I much prefer faders TBH to rotary's and it really never feet the sturdiest piece of kit for mashing on, certainly in comparison to the Herc which is built like a sherman tank and my KDJ500 which I had before ...

    I like my gear so tough even Chuck Norris' little finger couldn't damage it!

    Ironically i'm really happy with the herc and would highly reccommend it to anyone looking for a sub $500 controller (yes even over the VCI) Just want a change in workflow and many more faders and buttons


    Hell the nanokontrol feels like a toy but I've never heard it creak when the buttons are pressed

    Sensible does not come into the equation

    (Yeah I know Daft punk tour with BCR's but how many spares do they keep backstage and solder monkeys well fed !).

    APC80 seems sensible,those encoders won't make u miss the bcr. a sound card unless u have one other than the rmx.

    Sorry, but i am intrested in your bcr if u sell , n yes the nano too.

    Might be a plan hmmmmmmm

    Depending where you're based shipping might be a b1tch

    *edit* saw in one of your other threads you're looking to pick one up a lil cheaper than i'd be selling for.

    As far as I could see, the only plus for an APC 40 over an APC20 with BCR, would be the crossfader.

    Other than that, the BCR + APC20 would leave you with much more controls than a single APC40 would give you.

    Than again, rethink what you want to control here. From there try to set your destination. (Controller goal)
