    Default EPIC DILEMMA: Xone DB4 vs Rane MP2015

    So i just bought a Xone DB4 from Rev on this forum. It shipped from the US to UK and hasnt even reached me yet......and then the Rane MP2015 was announced at NAMM.....and i died!!!!

    My goal is a mixer with a sound card so i have 4 tracks from Traktor and a Master track coming from Ableton Live. On the DB4 i would have sacrificed a channel.
    On the MP2015 i can have 5 channels coming from my Macbook Pro.

    Also, the prospect of one USB from the DB4 to the Macbook Pro and Xone K2 through X-Link was gonna make my rig quite compact, with Ableton Push on the second USB input.....

    With the Rane, i'll have to carry a hub....
    But i love Rotary mixers, the filter per channel, the Sub Channel, FX Loop and the Master Iso.

    Wondering if i should sell my Xone DB4 in the UK and wait till early Feb for the MP2015 to come out......

    Any advice ??
    Cheers people!

    Thanks
    Faisal

    The DB4 also has a mic input that can effectively act as a channel. Also since you are on a Mac you can use software to route audio effectively. Doesn't your K2 have an audio out as well?
