I am currently weighing up the 2 setups.

One thing I am guessing, is that the S3 has a lot more dedicated buttons and easier to call up various settings?

Plus that 2nd row of knobs will be hella useful?
Nope. Don’t miss anything.
The assignable buttons on the bottom of the S1 takes care of a lot of needs. And the Dock covers everything plus more. (And the Dock encoders are more useful than the double encoder/channel on the S3.)

Also, I (and others) have had problems with faders or the OLEDs going out on the S3. Had multiple repairs. They are repairable which is useful but I’ve had zero issues with the S1/Dock with the hardware.
