If four-deck controller mixing is your bread and butter then head for the Reloop Terminal Mix 4 - it does the job far better. The jog wheels feel pretty smooth, allowing for a good scratch feel. I really hope someone out there can help! It is definitely worth the money. To get the full controlling power most manufacturers have been making these massive 4 deck controllers, or smaller 2 deck controllers with barely enough buttons and knobs to satisfy. Stanton is a Gibson company so the rma process can be a bit of a long winded ordeal but in the end it isn't as bad as it could be.
For example, the Scratch button toggles jog wheel scratching on and off, very nice for users of the Kontrol S2 who are missing that feature. They piss all over Technics and always have. The Aux input has a Thru switch that will bypass the computer audio and push the Aux Input to the master out. I don't want to have to install the le software the then upgrade to pro 7. Very usable Traktor mapping available. With Scratch mode on, touching the top of the wheels will initiate scratching, while you can still use the sides of the platters for pitch bending. The pitch faders send 14-bit pitch bend messages, allowing really accurate control, though the center detente is really small, leaving me searching for it more than anything.
It certainly did with us, and this writer has 20 years in the game. The Shift button also adds some most welcome functionality. I just got the N4, because Numark delivers good quality and no stupid ideas like Stanton……. Each deck also has four Sample banks, four hot cues, and a nice full-function loop-section. The N4 can also function as a standalone mixer without the use of a computer. While this is not something that I generally dig into very much on my own, it opened up a bunch of options and gave the full controller over to mixing video.
Okay let me dig deeper. Ratings Build Quality: Great at this price point. Got a pair of Stanton pro 3000 headphones some weeks ago, they broke after 2 gigs.

In a sense it is but all Audio bypasses the crossfader and goes straight to the master. The traktor mapping isn't quite as good as it could be, but with some tweaking it is just as good as any real traktor controller. This is not particularly intuitive, but when I test out each cd player one at a time, I do see a blue audio level showing up in each deck respectfully, which leads me to think this may be correct. There is just a lot of text on this thing. The Video, Press Release, and More Information after the jump.
The buttons and knobs are sturdy, connections tight, and outer shell feels tough and metal. It only comes with virtual dj le so an upgrade will have to taken into account when thinking about price. So Maybe can i ask is there actually audio going through the crossfader or is it just a midi command? If not, a great underground reputation will be damaged. The crossfader is user replaceable in case it ever fails and it has a loose feel to it while the line faders have a bit more tension.

The jog wheels are sleek and shiny, but once I start touching them they smudge really quickly.

Cheryl Sorry for the delayed response i was out of the country traveling extensively, was this ever resolved? After booting it up and watching the wealth of buttons ripple with a lightshow, you're hit with how much you have to play with. What are you waiting for?
