Add-on touchscreens for controllers
http://www.digitaldjtips.com/2014/07...dj-controller/

A potential gamechanger for those who prefer controllers but hate needing to use the laptops for everything. Honestly surprised this hasn't come about earlier, particularly from Native Instruments or Rane. I for one will be looking at getting one for my X1 Mk2 when they come out.

What do you think the benefit of one for an X1 would be? You would still need the laptop connected and can use the x1 via the laptop screen? Just interested to know.
Check it ****s.

I just find it distracting and slightly offputting to have to look at the laptop constantly when using controllers, in spite of the benefits they can bring compared to using a CDJ in HID/MIDI mode, so anything that can enable the necessary information for each deck/mixer/other type of controller to be available without needing the laptop in the DJ booth (i.e. stored underneath somewhere just out of sight) will be very welcome for myself and others who feel the same way as I do, such as those who learned on CDJs and are wanting to move towards a pure digital setup without things being overly clunky.
