• Billy Bleep

    Wish to get support NS7 II -with HID- under Traktor

  • partofthepuzzle

    This certainly isn’t a first but has to be one of the most passionately desired wishlist items:

    Ableton developing and releasing either a dedicated standalone DJ application (for PCs not for tablets) OR a DJ add-on for Live OR at the least, a DJ “mode” for Live. What I don’t understand about Ableton’s refusal to accommodate even the most minimal additional DJ features, is that we’re simply requesting UI options: the underlying technology is already there in Live. There are so many DJs using Live and the documentation even lists DJing as a prime use of the product, so why doesn’t Ableton respond to this? Not to mention that they are leaving a LOT of money on the table by not producing a dedicated DJing product…

    • DJ_ForcedHand

      Have you tried Stagecraft Studios software inside Ableton ?

  • Michael

    I wish a cheaper price for propellerhead reason!

  • Jesse Mercado

    How about a controller for just the effects section of Traktor for those of us that used CDJ-2000s and a stand alone mixer in HID mode? I’m thinking the top half of an X1 by itself.

  • Lawrence Decoker

    I would like to see a ‘Kontrol S1′. Take the S4, but throw out the mixer part. So basically a controller with knobs for effects, load and switch deck button, a jogwheel, pitchfader, loop and transport section. I play in pubs from time to time and my S4 is sometimes giving me a hard time to fit in the existing gear or when changing deejays. With a S1 you could put one left and one right of the existing external mixer. Ideally it would come with an internal sound card too. As mentioned in the comments Denon already did an effort with the DN-SC2000, but i would prefer a S1 with native HID communication and the existing lay-out of the S4.

  • seb.dj

    I want to have a controller X1-size with a jogwheel and usb-thumbdrive standalone player. Use them along side my Z2. Then i take two to replace the cdj’s. So small cdj without cd functionality, but with the ability to play from usb or phone ( via cable)… Come on NI…

  • Morris Summers

    I think VST or AU integration into Traktor would be cool…

    • DJ_ForcedHand

      Yes, it would finally be able to handle some really nice effects and Maschine software internally.

  • Lord Mannyrossa

    You can already technically link the Maschine and use it as an F1 already if you muck with the controller editor. However, I do want traktor to be able to recognize Maschine as its own entity and treat it like a track that was otherwise loaded into the deck.

  • nightcorex

    I nearly flipped out when I first glanced at the ‘Z4′ image. I’m kind of simultaneously anticipating/dreading the day NI finally releases that product. It’s exactly what I need… and what my budget doesn’t.

  • Jesse Smith

    Maybe a lower end DJ controller from NI could be great for a starting Dj

  • IanRaWdriguez

    Not sure if it has been discussed already, but..
    I think the Midi Drum Pants (yeah, its a real thing) deserve a mention in response to the “Unleash the Gloves” section.

  • tyler

    Omg the z4 and traktor with machine would be absolutely amazing

  • Stewart Read

    I would really like a Native Intruments app for iPad just to control Traktor Pro effects wirelessly with similar XY pads as on the TRAKTOR DJ app.

  • J Williams

    My top 5 Wish List
    1. My wife supports my interest in djing
    2. Maschine and Traktor integration
    3. Ableton develops a new dj software or plugin that has tempo variations and wave visualization. This will make number 2 happen
    4. More gigs that I don’t have to play Top 40
    5. The untimely death of trap music

    • STEVE SMELSER

      let me know how that first one works out…

  • tony corless

    An oversize kontrol x1 with a jogwheel,use 2 of them instead of cdjs,will never happen though!

    • deanb911

      Denon do exactly one of those… DN-SC2000. The link is below. You can use it for 2 decks, you can get another one and use it for 4 decks, or you can go the whole hog and get 4 of them and dedicate each unit to a deck.

      The downside is that with a mixer they will cost more than a S2 and S4 respectively.

      Now if only NI did the same sort of thing, plus a Z4 mixer with a built in USB hub…

      Ditch the effects controls on each unit and voila.

      In actual fact I’m gonna go further… Make everything NI in modules.

      Ok still have USB conectivity but have it on the side of each unit then a small male to female plug on one unit could plug in to the next “USB bridges” and make them so that they click together to form a streamlined unit.

      Therefore you can have an F1, X1, a Maschine, a Z4 mixer (with an extra filter knob for low-mid like an Allan & Heath, our newly invented Jog wheels…

      Ooooh-ooooh and an iPad frame that has our track selection right there in front of us and that can also be used like a Kaoss pad.
      You could even have NI’s own “waveform strip” between each jog wheel, looking a bit like Serato’s waveform. with BPM and Phase at the top of each. Or group them together.
      The possibilities aren endless and I bet the whole lot would be cheaper than a Pioneer or Denon CDJ set up.
      I’m sure clubs would look at that too as a standard, being that every part is replacable and only 3 cables in and out of the whole thing.

  • konrad

    Open Serato Dj Software which you can use with every audio interface.. Just like Traktor

  • Ricardo Thomas

    Traktor + Serato metadata would be the killer app of the year!

    • http://damiensirkis.net/ Damien Sirkis

      Serato will be added to Rekord Buddy in 2014.

      • thebigblaa

        I spoke with Serato, Native Instruments and Pioneer at WMC in 2007 in relation to creating a meta file format to/from which all dj systems metadata could be transformed. At that stage Serato were well up for it. They didn’t have time to prioritise building converters themselves, and loved the idea of an open format that wasn’t controlled by a single manufacturer. NI just built their own converter to go one way from Serato to Traktor, Pioneer were offended at the thought that anyone would want to move away from them. That was pre RecordBox

        • http://damiensirkis.net/ Damien Sirkis

          The file format is the easy part. Just an exchange format wouldn’t be enough. I learned a lot thru just adding support for Rekordbox and Traktor so adding support to Rekord Buddy for the others ones is easy now.

  • Alvaro Ramirez Perez

    The last traktor update (2.6.6) covers the integration of the remix deck and both Maschine. Anyone with a maschine mikro or regular will have two products (F1 + Maschine)

  • David (MadZler)

    a gemini g4v with twich’s touch strips (no jogs)

  • David (MadZler)

    DDJ-TX, a bvridge between ableton and traktor (an official one) upgraded traktor mapping facility (cuz the current one sucks bad), getting VST in traktor, maschine DJ, DAW colaboration website, bitwig and a DJTT new controller :)

  • DJ_ForcedHand

    I’d like to see dj software companies implement maps on pitch displays that indicate keys as the slider is moved through the range (up/down). Obviously this would require referencing the starting key and would probably standardize the Camelot Wheel.

  • Jérémie Cholette

    Android Traktor DJ app!

  • Killmedj

    More USB slots in a mac book!
    So I don’t need a hub!

  • Sergi Martínez

    Please, a 4 channel novation twitch!!! I don’t wanna jogwheels and pitch faders! I just wanna 4 channels, a touchstrip for seeking along my tracks and lots of pads to slice and mash my tunes!!! :)

    • DJ_ForcedHand

      I really live my Twitch, but I would not hesitate to upgrade to 4 channels if that was a direction Novation chose to go. I’d ideally like to see multi-color LEDs everywhere, including the touch strips (to help indicate which deck is playing), or X-Y pads (Chaos Pad style) would work equally well, but this unit should accept power as an option because the older version didn’t, and that was a problem for some. Another smart move would be to have at least a 2 port USB hub built in, for possible future expansions. All-in-all, I wouldn’t change much.

      • Billy Bleep

        …And let’s praise that Novation would make huge improvements in the build quality -some buttons on mine were clicking only on one corner after 2 or 3 months-, and change the knobs, as all these aspects on the twitch sucks a lot… (I know the twitch is cheap, but it doesn’t justify all the flaws and the complete lack of support from Novation)… oh, and add also another fx unit for compatibilty with serato DJ as using the twitch under DJ is a hassle, and not speaking about the odd behavior of touchstrips…

        • DJ_ForcedHand

          I haven’t noticed a problem with the build quality, but I got mine right when it was released. I still use it almost every day with the monthly trip to the club. Maybe I’m just not-as-rough on mine, or maybe the first gen’s were built sturdier? Who knows?

  • http://allisone.ru/ Paul Zgordan

    Realtime DAW Project Collaboration – are you hear about Ohm Studio???

  • Chaman de los arbustos

    A gig

  • Felipe Barbosa

    More MIDI Controllers like NS7II, with motorized platters!

  • Rhakka

    Being able to change the key of a track in Serato (without modifying the playback speed / tempo).

  • Protopov

    Actually you CAN remote control Traktor with the Numark Orbit ;)

  • Deksel

    having the soundcloud library accesible through spotify, or the other way around. Not necessarilly a DJ or producer thing, more for people who want to discover new music.
    Come to think about it, I actually want a universal mobile music player that can play music from all different Internet sources, in offline mode.
    If I’d sugarcoat it this player would also let you beatgrid them and add cue points in an open format that interfaces with the big DJ softwares.
    Oh yeah, and beat warping in Traktor (ableton like) instead of rigid beatgrids. thank you.

  • MaBonzo

    proper itunes integration/ crates for traktor or at least smart playlist that update

  • http://theditchparty.tumblr.com/ evolakim

    My number one wish would be for Maschine and Traktor sync. It just makes sense and I can’t understand why it isn’t standard. My live set-up would finally be complete and stream-lined.
    Also, I’d love to see midi-sync between apps on iPad.

    • DJ_ForcedHand

      This is so very important. Once it’s completed and Maschine works in HID mode with Traktor we can finally forget about the wasted effort on Traktor’s Remix Decks and the Kontrol F1.

  • Oddie O’Phyle

    NI package… maschine, komplete and traktor on linux platform (preferably on red hat).

    • Oddie O’Phyle

      or a Z4

  • Robert Wulfman

    traktor mapping needs more condition slots (4 would be great), ordered commands and the pitch and gain controls on remix deck slots should be mappable. while we’re at it, throw in a flux reverse

  • Carlos

    A 4 channel mixer and Maschine integration for Traktor would be the best thing I could ask for.

  • +1 for BitWig. I’ve been following the updates closely on reddit.com/r/bitwig . It looks like it will be a serious game changer. I think pricing will be the ultimate factor on if it will be successful. If it can price itself closer to Logic’s price instead of the (insane) pricing of Ableton, it will be on everyones wish list in 2014

  • Felipe Burns

    New S4 with displays and no need of a computer!

  • Jimi Barrz

    Vestax VCI 480 and a new Serato DJ GUI!

  • D3RKIN

    I wish NI would have given the s2 a dedicated filter knob, they should have setup the mixer portion like the z1.

  • Mike Graham

    How about a real, true 4 deck controller this year? Every 4 deck controller is 4 mixer channels with 2 decks with deck flipping.It’s about time we get a monster controller with 4 physical deck controllers to go with the 4 channels on the mixer. I have been hoping to see this come for so long

  • djblackjack

    • djhank

      yes, i agree~~~

    • http://www.eangolden.com Ean Golden

      we actually designed one and never made it! What would you be willing to pay for a really pro hub?

      • Scott Frost

        Hey Ean. I think a good price point would be $70-$100. I had approached a few of the top manufacturers years ago with the idea of a 19″ rack mount hub since nothing like that was available, but was told that they weren’t in the accessory business. I think the need is here for some sort of cable management system. Not only in the DJ world but in the studio world. How many devices now are USB, I have too many hubs and cables that are just a mess. i’m sure you could make something half or 1/3 the size of the midi fighter and add 12 ports, 6 on top of each other all in a good quality design.

        • DJ_ForcedHand

          Velcro straps seem to be a very cost-effective, versatile solution to cable wrangling. You can even use the straps to secure things to each other (such as cables to equipment).

      • Scott Frost

        By the way, i hope you had a great Christmas.

      • jeremy

        I would buy one for sure.

      • Dj EsDee

        It should have locks, that USB Connectors cant “fall” out during working and the USB Metal Shield should be completely plugged, and it should have an internal Powersupply with Wide Range Voltage (no more Wall Warts). Ports should be at least 4 Ports and only on one Side of the box.
        Pay…. if its really good, ill pay between 30 – 50€
        I think you can really desing that stuff and there is a market, not only for Djs!

      • BrosephStalin

        I’d buy one and recommended them to everyone I know. Send me one to Review (#^.^#)

      • Albatross

      • Robert

        Hi Ean,

    A smaller, jog-wheel free DDJ-SX. Ideally from Native Instruments. In other words: a Kontrol Z4, but with most features from X1 and F1 built in.

    • KIO

      So basically you want a Novation Twitch?

      • stefanhapper

        Yes, but with a built-in stand-alone 4-channel mixer

        • KIO

          Just out of curiosity: why de you prefer having a Z4, X1 and F1 all build into one unit rather than taking the individual modules?

          • stefanhapper

            The combination of X1 and a (potential) Z4 would still have quite some overlap (browse and loop section, sync, FX section, hot cue buttons). That’s why I’d prefer a compact all-in-one device with optimised layout.

      • chris

        i agree.
        But for small rooms 256 kbps is ok.
        on bigger ones you need full pressure.
        but most of all, you can’t hear an difference on good speakers.

        • chris

          there is probably so many non-proffesional meanings about the quality of digital music out there, so i will post this. (and i’m worked in programming business)

          AIFF and WAV is only an container. ALAC is truly lossless.

          >>(when you decode it between truly lossless formats, every bit will stay the same) <<

          today is an better decoding with the lame decoder, so you had really nice 256kbps files as well.

          what i wanna say: a "good" 256kbps file is not really bad at all. but for the big feeling and an crispier sound and the real pressure on an open-air, you had to play lossless files. Indoor up to 10kw you can play also with 256kbps. And i had to repeat this: if the speakers are nice, you can't hear an difference. If the Speaker had the right vibration, you can't hear …..

          but i agree: i feel more save with lossless files, because how many clubs have good speakers or even a vibrating floor
