    Default How Many Decks Do You Use

    Personally I use 2 track decks and a remix deck that's the most my brain can handle, how many decks do you use and in which kind of configuration?

    I use the same - but I also use Deck D for quickly setting cue points on a track that is playing on Deck A or Deck B.

    Use to play on three decks back in my drum and bass vinyl days, but I sold my xone32 a few moons ago and now only use 2 decks. Which I do really enjoy, but sometimes I miss the frantic mixing three decks gives you.

    I just use one. Nah, I use either 2 track decks or 2 track decks and a remix deck depending on what kinda stuff I'm playing.

    A and B for tracks
    C and D for loops, samples, Remix Deck Sequencer or as a deck support for my Isolated EQ effect mode.

    Using two at the moment, but looking to add some remix decks into the equation once I find enough samples to suit.
