Hello Denon Forum, how are you?
Yesterday I had the opportunity to taste the X1850 with two sc6000, I was so hype, I’m a Prime 4 user. When I tried I was a little bit lost with the mixer, it was totally different to the Prime 4 Mixer, so I thought about the Prime 4 Mk 2, I thought that MK2 should come with all the good things of the sc6000 and the x 1850, today I made the first idea of model of the Prime 4 MK2
I know… I’m not the best one making fanmades, but this is to close to what I expect for the MK2, let’s analyze it
I tried to make the mixer similar to the x1850 and also similar with the Prime 4 mixer, why did I make like this? If you see pioneer, all the controller mixers are tend to be similar to a professional mixer, so in the moment you jump to a big mixer you don’t feel to lost, for example: XDJ-XZ & DJM-900NXS
The mixer that i design make the MK2 mixer similar to the x1850, what do you think about?
Also, if you see, I keep the browse of the Prime 4 mixer in, I only move it to the left. What do you think about it?
I put load buttons on top the mixer, I feel that is easier to load tracks like this, if you want to load a track to a channel you have to make two or three clicks, with this is a little bit easier, BUT also I don’t want to remove to actual ways to load, having many ways of doing the same thing gives diversity to the gear.
Down the browse, left to the filter knobs, there is the sweep FX buttons
Down there are all the headphones tools
In the middle there is the 4 channel mixer
At the right there is all FX tools
First of all, I know the proportions aren’t to well work, Im sorry for that
Jog: the jogs for the MK2 are the same of the SC6000, the same design, and same dimensions. The Prime 4 (the normal) have a good jogs… but they can be better, I’m sure everyone want a new prime 4 with the sc6000 jogs
Jog adjust: A new function for the jogs, giving more possibilities for the DJ, this is cool for tricks
Layer button: I remove the Deck select, I mean, I change them with the layer button, I prefer only one button to change decks, what do you think?
-New Style: I replace the Prime 4 style with the SC6000 style, style of buttons I mean
-Stop time: I know we have the stop time in the screen of the Prime, but like I said before, is cool to have many ways to made one thing, what do you think?
FX1 & F2:
If you pay attention to this FX zones, I remove the FX1 and FX2 zone, why? I change them with a independent fx channel, I mean, now you could have a independent fx for channel, I have seen this feature in other gears, and is really helpful, for example the GEMINI G4V and G2V
For the rest of the controller I didn’t make more changes
What do you think about my ideas and design? And what are you expecting for the DENON PRIME 4 MK2?
Thanks for your attention:v:t2:
