    It's kinda hard to compare the 62 and Z2 intrinsically though, I mean, look at the main specs point for point.

    3 Immortal magnetic faders vs 3 short body Mini-Innofaders.

    A pair of 32f-Bit 20 channel soundcards vs a single 24 bit 6 channel card.

    Rane engineered converters and signal processors vs a first attempt at processors by NI and licensed converters.

    If you keep going, and look at the control durability of the S series vs the control durability of every Rane product since 1981, price just starts to disappear.

    The more apt comparison is Z2 vs DJM-T1, and even that pretty much shitkicks the Z2 in almost every way, point for point.

    Thanks for posting up the pics

    Have any of you ever had a custom case made?

    I was thinking of getting a case made that would house the Z2, X1, & F1 + Sliding Laptop Stand.

    I'm wondering if it would set me back any more than $400 dollars?

    I owned the T1, liked it but never loved it. One of my biggest issues, though small was that it did not have a dedicated filter knob. Additionally the sound quality was not as good as my S4. which I owned at the same time.

    I had the mixer about 6 months but ended up using my s4 at clubs because of the portability and work flow at the time. Probably the best bang for your buck before the z2 came out.

    Why do you think it's no longer the best bang for the buck? You know the Z2 costs more, right?

    Also you say the S4 is more portable. I suspect you're talking about the DDJ-T1 midi controller, not the DJM-T1 2 channel mixer.

    The Z2 is only $100.00 more than the PIONEER DJM-T1 mixer. I was stating that I owned the Traktor S4 controller at the same time as the pioneer DJM-t1 fader with my turntables. I ended up using my S4 controller at more gigs and felt I performed better with the s4. I don't want to get off topic- there is another topic discussion in the forums comparing the z1 and t1.

    Id expect about $400, Road Ready should be able to help you or you can build your own.

    Or a case like this http://www.odysseygear.com/odyssey-p...gs4trakbl.html

    that should give you enough room to do what you like and then add padding to make everything snug!!

    Hmm, I already have that case for the NS6. maybe I'll refrain from selling it until I get the gear, and see if it will all fit.

    Thanks for the idea.

    I'm waiting to test this out. Z2 and Rane61/62 are simular BUT with rane you have the video option. Of all the things NI gives us they still leave out that one option. Even VDJ has video.

    I personally am interested in seeing how well the innofaders work on the z2. A little concerned that someone stated earlier that the line faders are "Stiff"...me being a old school type of DJ...line faders are a must for scratching. I'm going to stick with my vestax07pro, built in audio 6, and amazing faders....that is unless i can convince the wife to use our GC card for z2 lol...

    but for the value you cannot beat it NI has market locked

    Mixer, Software, and control media for $799...STEAL

    That's not really anything to do with the hardware though. You could use whatever software you want with it at the end of the day.
