12” motorized controller

What is your thoughts about this? Interesting view!

My God. Such a renowned website and such a bad mock-up… the idea is okay, but the result is just laughable.

Give it a tone arm, and it could be the new VL12 MKII turntable.

12 inch platter just looked ridiculous, so I reduced it to 10 inches.

There was a rumour that Pioneer is working on a 10 inch platter “Pioneer BDJ-V10” to replace the TOUR-1 which when you have a platter that big you need a flip screen imho otherwise you end up with a huge oversized piece of hardware.

This rumour was floating around before Pioneer announced their latest mixer. The BDJ-V10 ended up being the DJM V10.

I heard there would be a whole new range. The DJM V-10 mixer and the CDJ TOUR-1’s replacement in the “Pioneer BDJ-V10”. A 10 inch platter and 10 inch flip screen.

Maybe just Chinese whispers though …

Would be nice. The original rumor came from a patent filing for the BDJ-V10 which ended up matching the final filing for the DJM V10. The Tour1 was a pretty big Flop, so I doubt we will see something similar ever again from Pioneer. They are in the play it safe and make money side of things.

Why is this thread about P? And complaining about the design about the mockup instead of the idea? Because it’s a good idea, maybe it’s in the pipeline or not but I personal think it’s a good idea. The only thing it’s the pricepoint as it should both work as a controller and a standalone. My concern is the price. Rane 12 MK is 899$ and SC6000M 1799$. What is realistic? And it’s place in the market? Is there a demand?

You can say Pioneer yunno lol. And it was just a comparison because there was a similar rumour last year of a device like this as explained in the above comments.

You did ask:

I guess some did not like the basic mock-up :laughing:

I doubt it would be so high as you’re adding the price of a Rane Twelve plus a SC6000M when basically you would only need the 6000M with a larger platter, not a 6000M with platter plus a Rane Twelve.

As for a place in the market, well sure there will always be a place, the question is would the demand be profitable.

In all honesty, I personally think there would be more chance of this happening or something similar with Rane than Denon and in the form of a Rane Twelve MKIII with a touchscreen.

As basically this concept already exists with the SC6000M and all that’s being asked is to increase the size of the platter. Which realistically is going to be a size issue, like I stated above in previous comments with the Pioneer BDJ-V10 TOUR-1 concept it would need a folding or steep angled upwards screen.

A good compromise could be a simple 10" version of the Rane 12 MK2 + a standalone mixer/player !!! Basically a mixer version of the Prime Go/2/4 without the jogs section !!! Then the power of the Rane 10/12 and the LC6000 will be fully unleashed !

This world first mixer/player could be a game changer

Two 12" or even 10" decks with a built-in mixer and screens would just be stupidly huge :laughing:

a rane 72 prime?

it has transport controls

or rane 82 in the mold of the DJM 2000

It would need 4-Channels if running EP or no serious scratch DJ would want it seen as EP has no scratch/sample banks.
