    i want to add from my end that from the time i knew about it i stressed out that i wanted to have this fact available for the users as early as possible and not upon release. as you could see, i was also the one stressing this out in the TOTR.

    i also actually had mixed emotions about it until i saw the first (internal) introduction video.

    the integration of the remix decks on such a small device is simply awesome. i've always been someone who mapped controllers by myself, this one would've been the first one where i would use the factory mapping anyways. they really did a good job. and even with the reduced feature set plus the mouse you're still able to do some nice stuff, really.

    Here's the bit I read:

    There has not been a decision by NI to limit controller capacity in Traktor, and inclusion of these features is planed at some point

    so after all that crap yesterday including a PM to tell me to shush about the DJTT article they release that new statement that clarifys the issue...!
    why did'nt they just say that if that was the case and why did they not inform the mods of this so they could of eased our fears .... now they can keep the F1... i'll wait till i can use my other controllers thanks you...!

    fluky.. you need to have a word with NI .. they left you out to dry for the last few days..!

    kinda, yes and i feel sour. of course, not towards you as users (although i'm somewhat surprised actually how many ppl obviously didnt read the FAQs and even regulars here missed it and yes, some used language that wasnt necessary), but towards DJTT.

    they've been doing nothing but tryina stir things up by purpose, did a bad recherche, did not talk to NI and even didnt do their homework (FAQs, once again). <= please note, this is my personal opinion

    i told you not to crosspost, not to "shush" about the article! cross- and doubleposting is against the forums rules. if you had spread a link where traktor is praised as the solution to all and everything, i would've said the very same...

    i'm all good with NI. what happened is not their fault. it's simply not the first time, they're trying to form an opinion instead of giving the good and true facts. it was a badly recherched article, simple as that.

    p.s.: checkout this sticky thread, this is NIs official statement:

    well ... that thread from NI's development team is exactly the reaction we want as users and without all this forum tittle tattle we would never of had clarification.....

    In my case I read them and understood them I just didn't believe that they were 100% true to fact because I knew the 16 slot control we requested could be implemented.

    Now at least we know they will work on it for future updates.

    What worries me now is how long this will stay a closed system and if I should adapt my style to it. Because one of the things I pride myself on as a DJ is my technical flexibility with Traktor… as long as I have my computer, some audio interface and some form of control I'm ok. Time code vinyl, just an X1, just Maschine or everything at once, my work can go on even if I'm missing any individual piece of equipment.

    But if I adapt my way of mixing to heavy use of the sample decks and my F1 fails before a show I'm dead. For now I'll keep using just the 4 slots that Maschine can control for mixing live but will play with the F1 at my studio and see where it takes me.
