    Default Updating my Gear, what i should buy?

    Hello!! I have Vci-100 with 1.4 firmware and newest mapping and i have Dj i/o soundcard.. And ofc Traktor Pro!

    I have about 250 to go (362.30 usd$)

    Should i buy: 1. NEW SOUND CARD between Traktor Audio 2 DJ and Traktor Audio 6 2. or save to NA S4 3. Buy Vci-100 mapping layout and Coloured Faders and Knobs? 4. Buy Traktor Kontrol X1 and Traktor Audio 2 same time?

    What do you feel your setup is missing?

    There's no point splashing the cash aimlessly - that's just shiny kit aquisition syndrome and you won't end up using half of it ...

    If you want to buy an overlay for your VCI, wait to see if they make an updated one for Traktor Pro 2.

    the audio 2 does seem to get a lot of love around here - If you've no interest in timecode there's not a lot of additional point to getting and Audio 4/6/8/10 I don't think.

    I'd probably get the layout for the 1.4 f/w as well (or you could wait and hope they bring a specific mapping out for TP2 ...)

    hmm i will buy audio 2 and the layout when it shows up!! and it seems that X1 is pretty useless becouse of Vci-100 which have all those functions

    my vote would be for the Audio 2 and the X1 (if it was me and i wanted a better card/round out my setup)....

    colored knobs are kewl too.

    The VCI overlay is wicked! I'd defo get that and an audio 2.

    The coloured knobs are ok but the rubberised ones are better. Do you have a silver or black vci?

    Personally the VCI is still doing it for me.

    The only thing i'd be tempted by is the TWITCH eh.

    Soooo guilty of this. maybe some sort of pad controller for better cue point juggling (I have a bit of a button fetish) ? The vci has pretty much everything else wrapped up ...
