    I know.. but then on his mixer I see 4 tracks playing.

    So he uses one X1 two control 2 tracks and the technics to control 2 other tracks?

    Either that or he has a custom 4 deck mapping for it, there are a few around such as this one.

    He does control decks with the turntables and the X1, I've saw him playing in front of me. He also uses a pedal and other device I didn't recognize. I don't quite understand the use of turntables for techno, but anyway the sound was sweet.
