Cue button

Hi all was wondering is it possible to set the cue button to jump to the cue position in play mode, my sc5000 if the track is playing sets a new cue point. Not sure if this is normal behavior and last cd players j used was the pioneer cdj 500

This is not normal

Pioneers let you set a cue point if you’re holding the music still by triggering touch… or at least when you hold the touch and do a longer cue press. On the SC5000 currently you have to be either paused to set it or you have hit shift+cue to set it while playing. If you hit cue while playing currently, even if scratch is being triggered, this still jumps back and stops at the prior main cue if shift isn’t being held. So as DJMarcoMarco says, the behavior you report is not normal for the Denon.
