    Default Xone 4D and Traktor Pro

    Hi all,

    Long time reader of this brilliant website (thanks Ean), but sadly first time poster. As i have started to get into digital djing this website has easily been the most content and knowledge rich site available, and these forums are a very warm and friendly and just plain helpful. sorry about the rant, back to the post.

    I have been using Virtual DJ with a BCD3000 on a MacBook Pro 17" and have never had a problem with it, but am looking to upgrade to something more professional. After much much research i have decided to upgrade to Traktor Pro (mainly for the ability to use 4 decks) and a Xone 4D as my controller. I was just wondering if any of you have had and experience using these 2 combined and any pro's and cons for this set up.

    The other option ofcoures is getting a Xone 92 and two 1D controllers. any advice on this would be helpful too.

    Or... if my finances allow it a Xone 4D and two 1D's for complete control of 4 decks.

    sorry to make u read all that. but any help would be greatly appreciated

    hey welcome to the forum

    unfortunally i havent try the xone 4d but one thing i can tell you you dont need 1 xone 4d and 2 1d to have all controls of 4 decks you can have 4 decks with only one 4d

    my friend he owns a xone 3d and he have control of 4 decks with traktor 3

    you just have to sit and play with the mappings

    Both options are a possibility.

    I have seen a few DJs using it in their home setup.
    But using 2 extra 1Ds? To me that would be overkill.

    I am beginning to get more and more fascinated by the 4d, though I still think it's way and way overpriced.

    It's really not necessary to use 2extra 1D's, like Tekki said, that would be overkill!
    Go and spend that money on something else!!

    The 4D is a controller that is also on top of my wishlist. I've seen Richie Hawtin using 2 1D's and the xone 92, thats a very interesting setup too, but I don't really get the difference between his setup and the 4D.

    Well, is the 4D with 3 EQ-rotaries or with 4?

    Don't know actually.

    From what I've heared, the Xone:92 is an amazing mixer, which yet has to be topped by any other regular mixer.

    4D is with 4 EQ-rotaries
    And the Xone:92 is indeed an amazing mixer, I've used it a couple of times and its the best I've ever used. If only I had the money...

    the only reason i was thinking the extra 1D's was to have more buttons faders etc. which therefore would create more possabilitys with mapping and performance. i was thinking dedicated knobs for FX and dedicated buttons (the A-Z buttons) to control que points

    the 4D has only 3 EQ knobs - thus the idea to go with the 92
    and also for transportation as the 4D is not a small item

    A 92 with 2 1Ds is bigger than one 4D.
