Hardware mixer or APC-40?

Hardware mixer or APC-40?

Hey guys,

So I am starting to DJ a bit, and I have been using a nocturn to control ableton but have found the latency issues to be quite frustrating when doing quick crossfades (chopping back and forth...whatever it is called...I don't do lingo). I hattteeee the nocturn and I am really keen to splash out on an APC-40...but I am worried the same issue will still be present. Would I be better off getting a proper DJ mixer instead? I use a kontrol 1 audio interface, so I have 4 stereo outs...

The problem with going that route is I will need another controller to trigger tracks....possibly a launchpad (although after getting the nocturn I am fairly apprehensive to get more novation gear...)

Anyway, I am fairly ignorant to this sort of thing...have only really done production up until this point so any advice you guys can give is greatly appreciated!

hope you all had a bangin' new year btw!
