I know NI recently discontinued the D2 before this new generation of Traktor gear that's coming out, so I'm hoping something like this is in the pipeline. Basically my and my bro have a setup similar to the likes of Tale of Us, Mind Against, Martinz Bros, etc - Two laptops, synced via Traktor Link (see my other thread on this though as it's a nightmare) and each use our own controllers into a little "summing" mixer. The eventual plan is to buy an A&H Xone 96, which seems more than ideal. Plenty of channels and amazing analogue quality, plus two separate monitoring sections, two USB soundcards meaning no need for hundreds of cables, and apparently if you record on one laptop internally in Traktor it records the mix from both laptops - perfect! However the question then is control. I currently use an X1 (Mk2) and an A&H K2, but my bro uses a Pioneer DDJ SB2 which he's used to, and a spare X1 I have for FX controls, etc as the SB2 is designed for Serato and the deck controls, while mapped correctly, are a bit clunky. A couple of X1s each would be ideal, but he loves the jogwheel, and to be honest the way the acts I mention use CDJ2000NXS2s in HID mode it's clear he's not alone. It looks professional and gives you that nice solid feel. But it's a "fix" that isn't ideal and at nearly £10,000 for four, extremely expensive. So my suggestion for NI is a full deck controller like the D2, but with a nice big jogwheel, like the one on the S4 Mk3 (though a touch bigger would be nice) and all the controls. Essentially imagine just chop one of the deck sections of the S4 off and beef it up a bit. Perfect, and I imagine all sorts of people from amateur DJs right the way up to the king himself (Carl Cox) would find a great use for it. After all, Cox uses the now discontinued D2s, but likes to have CDJs too in HID mode for the big jogwheels. So I'm hoping something like this is in progress, but if not, get on it NI!
