    Default Setup Idea ?

    So I've been thinking of stepping up from my S2 + Midi Fighter Setup to a Z2 + 2 X1's + my midi fighter !

    Anybody have a similar setup ?

    Or should I get the good old CDJ 850ks w/ the z2 ?

    Not sure if to switch from digital djing .. or ?

    Ideas ?

    A proper 4 channel mixer will let you make proper use of 2 X1s. If you don't use the S2 jogs and are interested in moving to 3 or 4 deck mixing then sure.

    As for CDJs, the 850s are still not HID compatible with Traktor so I'd avoid that model.

    Why is that??? The z2 its supposed to be a 2 + 2 ?

    The +2 is more intended for remix decks rather than full track decks that you'd use with the X1.

    You really need 4 sets of EQs + fader if you're going to be mixing 4 track decks.
