    Default Feeling some of the limitations of the S2

    The S2 has been a great controller for the couple months I have had it. While it's not my dream setup of a pair of SL1200's at my fingers, I have been mostly satisfied.

    However I am starting to feel some of the limitations of the board, especially with mashups. While you can use the sample decks to stage loops and build up a unique mashup, it seems sometimes it would just be easier to have all 4 decks at your control. Also having just 4 sample decks is limiting for some cue jumping, let alone loops. I have tried the 4-deck mapping for the S2 and it just did not seem like a natural workflow to control.

    I have been thinking should I just keep trying to master what I have, trade up to an S4, or augment my current setup with a Midi Fighter or some other additional controller to gain some additional control.

    Update to TP2 PRO, & wait the new controler from NI seems a good option too.

    It already has TP2 Pro. Am I missing something?
