PLAYdifferently Model 1 VS Xone 96 VS Pioneer V10

Hi all,


love the idea of the model one but the main thing that turns me off is the lack of a usb interface to do live sets. I use CDJs/turntables, ableton, drum machine synths so keeping things simple might be easier with the Xone 96 or v10. I don't care for the effects in the pioneer, sound quality is the most important thing to me as well as ease of use.

I have played the v10, it's nice but I am open to the other options as well.

Whats your take?

I’m in a similar position. I’m looking for a center piece that’s more performance oriented for my live rig. Typically I’ve used a Mackie mixer and more recently a ssl xdesk. I’m between the V10 which is feature rich and the model 1 which is a solid offering. I’m leaning more towards the v10 but I’ve yet to see any actual users comment on sound quality where A&H is proven there.

I've played on one a lot, my buddy picked it up. It is a bit better than a normal DJM but still sounds a bit lifeless imo compared to AH. The filters are better than the normal pioneer ones because of the resonance control but that is about it. Internal effects are cheap-sounding, would rather use one of my pedals. Definitely leaning towards the 96 or model 1 but I love the idea of having a usb input on the 96 and v10

I'm just very big on analog stuff, whether it's drums synths etc I've become picky about what I wanna hear. W the v/10 it is definitely great quality but it doesn't have that same warmth found in analog mixers

thanks. Id say the one thing it does have is a limiter built in and I also like being able to quickly route effect into a channel. Bummer about sound quality. Id live to hear a side by side. I think I may just try and have Sweetwater send me both and do a head to head. They prolly just aren't gonna be very fond of getting such a high end unit back on B stock.
