The sweep control on the noise effect transitions really abruptly. Say with the sweep fx knob in the 5 o’clock position barely any noise , 4 o’clock position same and then all of a sudden just past 4 o’clock LOADS of noise !
By 2 o’clock it’s then pretty well reduced in volume which leaves you with a small operating window and also means you have to ride the Channel Fader somewhat to balance it all out. It’s just not consistent in my opinion compared to say CDJ’s where you can set it all the way to max and slowly bring back to 12 o’clock and it stays even and consistent throughout.
I have edited the volume in the Utility menu to different settings but the harshness I have described is unaffected. I also think that it is the wrong approach to have to go into the Utility menu to change the db setting when the gain knob for that channel would be far better utilised and far more quickly adjusted, depending on the volume of the track and the intended severity of noise effect required. Some things are just done the right way on Pioneer gear IMHO
