    Hey guys, I’m looking into the Denon 6000 MK2, the DDJ-SR and now this… I had almost settled on the SR, then saw this. Should I wait for the TM8? If you could work with me and help me work out which would be better for my needs that would be awesome! Thanks, Isaiah

    this looks very similar to the vci 400.
    btw: to copy something is a form of recognition

    I hope the keep the same filter design as the TM-2 and TM-4… the built in filters were some of the smoothest hardware filters I’ve heard so far in all-in-one controllers.

    this looks like a S4 but less expensive, i see a few difference on the sound card, but this is basically the same, something like this but for traktor would be awesome at that price

      The 8 pads sells it to me against the S4

      • Rayalon

        The S4 also has 8 buttons for hotcues and Remix-Decks control, and is also very tight with Traktor. If you use Traktor – S4 is the perfect solution. If you use DJ, the Reloop is a nice looking product.

          That’s true but I don’t like having to use the shift command to trigger hot cues. For my style of playing they are integral so I want immediate access which gives this the nudge against the S4. You’re tight though the S4 is perfectly matched to tractor so I’ll give you that much.

          • Rayalon

            With a simple menu configuration – Sample Decks buttons become hotcues 5-8, so no shift is needed.
            So, you have the bottom row functioning as hotcues 1-4 and top row 5-8.

            S4 seems to be completely unreliable now too though , with all the freezing and crashing going on. And no word from native instruments if its even being adressed. I know they do try and sell you on ipad support but it doesnt work with ios 7 so whats the point. I wanted to get the s4, but this or possibly the sx maybe my next controller.

          • Rayalon

            I work daily with the S4, no crashes and no issues at all.
            NI was the 1st to release Mavericks drivers to all of its interfaces.
            S4 works flawlessly with every version (starting 2.6.x).
            If I were you, I’d check to see if there’s a problem with the computer, ’cause the S4 is working 100% for 99.9% of the users.

            You either work for native instruments or you are in complete denial to make a statement like this. I see more people saying the s4 and s2 mk2 has issues then the 1% of the people that claim it works. Since you claim that i am the .1% of people that it doesnt work for. Here is just a few threads on native instruments forum where I guess the rest of the .1% of users say it constantly freezes and crashes..

            3.)http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/showthread.php?209027-new-traktor-s2-mk2-3-times-Crashed-whats-going-on….this post has several people all talking about how it crashes and freezes. So please do not claim it works for everyone but a handful of people. I found these 3 threads in less then 30 seconds on native instruments forums. When I said it didnt work properly I wasnt just speaking on my own personal opinion, or based on the fact that i work for native instruments. I made that claim based on you see and hear people complaining about it daily and native instruments has yet to make such as a peep on if they plan to fix it or acknowledge its a problem. And NO it is not just a problem with everyones computer..(rolls eyes.)

            the S4 is 300$ more…. and do almost the same things as the reloop , i was going to upgrade to a s4 but the reloop seems waaay more interesting at that price

          • djtsmooth

            I am torn between this and the pioneer ddj sx, they are lowering the price of the ssx to 782$ now so they this and the ssx are basically the same price. I may lean to the ssx because of the traktor mapping that pioneer released.

            Hell, NI have finally admitted the problem! No denying it any more!
