While it lacks touch strips you'll have a physical pitch fader and the jogs are quite more comfortable for manual beat matching if you fancy doing it. If you want to keep it simple start with a Kontrol S2 and then add a set of F1 for better stem and remix/stem controls.
Thanks a lot! I thought about the s4, too. Is it possible to get the same funktionality with s4 and f1 or other hardware like the s8? If possible I would like to avoide the touch strips. they may be cool and new but not praktikal for blind people.

It sounds that with the s4 I could do most of my stuff well. Since everyone now wants the s8 I could get a great deal on the s4.
