Thanks for heads up.
I come from from Rekordbox having switched from my CDJ2000 Nexus to SC5000M - on the whole I’ve not been disappointed. Great players!
What I would say, from recollection, Rekordbox permits up to 10 memory cues/loops to be stored in addition to the 8 hot cue points. You can set and navigate quickly through the 10 memory cues/loops using memory, and call commands.
I think the functionality of be able to rename the 8 cues currently within Engine, as this allows for greater ability to split tracks up into key sections/ segments which have different energy/musicality. However, only having 8 cues that can be recalled using the pads is a limiting factor on ability to split up complex tracks in this way.
I appreciate there is a limit of the players, but maybe there is some room for further functionality to be added for setting and calling additional cues in future firmware updates.
It would also be nice to see a “bars/beats remaining until next cue point” be added to player, and the ability to display/hide different types of track information, such as current BPM etc.
