    Default Kontrol x1 mk2 - anybody suspect its coming soon?

    After few yrs of beating my x1 up, its getting close to needing replacement (shift and play buttons not so responsive anymore).. I can probably hold out for 3-6 more mos.. Anybody suspect well see an upgraded model soon? Any insider info? Would love one with color feedback and an led readout..

    Still reigns supreme as my fave controller.. So logically laid out and intuitive and maps so tight with traktor.. Got a good 2+ years of manhandling before showing any signs of wear so i cant complain in this ge of "throwaway electronics". And i think i purchased it 2nd hand at the time if i remember right..

    use the pcb board and make a custom x1 with arcade buttons?
    It's not the gear. It's how you use it.
    limitations are the source of creativity.
    If you don't practice you don't want it.

    No it wasn't, unless you've found a picture other than the one someone posted a few weeks ago. The pic was taken with some sort of filter on the lens, so the colours looked different. Not a new X1.
