    Default Best controller available

    Just wondering what everyone's opinion is on the best controller out. It doesn't matter whether it's 2 deck or 4 deck traktor or serato. Id like to see people even go as far for instance to include standalone mixers like a Z2 that doesn't require tt's

    I'd say:

    -ddj-sx and vci400 for serato
    -ableton push for live
    -traktor s4 + f1 + x1 for traktor
    -EKS otus RAWs + mixer for other software

    Kinda comes down to:

    - matter of preference (mixing style)
    - budget
    - the software you want to control (debatable)
    - what you can fit (size/weight)

    There's no such thing. It's like saying whats the best car ever made? It all depends on the situation. Sure, for a rockstar a Rolls Royce is an amazing tool, but if you're a farmer, you're going to need a Land Rover since the Rolls Royce won't do too well on your farm land.

    Pick the tool you need for the job. I have my member firmly jammed in Traktor's ass hole (Although sometimes it feels like the other way around) and after picking up an F1, the S4 was, to me a logical progression, and after three weeks of use it is indeed an absolutely phenomenal controller. For me.

    I like the S2 for sound quality, size portability, available mappings and the fact I use traktor.

    Wouldn't swap it for any other controller on the market... maybe a VCI 400 EGE but even then that feels a bit cluttered to me.

    But preferably i like to use X1, Audio 10, external mixer and, but not essential, TTs... So maybe the X1 is my favorite controller
