Just a few questions regarding EQ settings. I have just upgraded from a Pioneer DDJ SB3 using Serato. First I just want to say it doesn’t feel as good…im hoping this is due to the settings which I am about to ask about.
I generally don’t use crossfader for blends ill upfade with very low eqs and work from there. One thing I have found is that the EQ’s don’t seem fluid, they seem very clunky in terms of the sound it changes. With my pioneer I could get fluid sweeps across both decks to make great sounding blends without too much volume increase. I did this with ease on the pioneer!
I have seen a couple of settings which may be the issue, this is Isolate EQ and Norm EQ. Also seen the Xover settings but I have no idea what these do? Can somebody help me?
I have been so close to sending my P4 back as I feel its just not upto the same standard as Pioneer but im hoping im proven wrong. Also the LED lights seem to lag slightly, like on the Pioneer I could see what level I was at, and it was very responsive aside from only having 5 LEDS. I haven’t found this with the P4 so far, is this something anyone else has noticed?
Finally…Engine Prime…what on earth is this monstrosity…no beat nudge function when preparing tracks before export to the machine, no menu memory, cue points disappearing when exporting tracks to the Denon, slow readin of tracks which have already been analysed, terrible filter and tagging options!
I bought this kit based on a number of top people recommending it, I was also interested in beatport link, however I have now realised that you would be unable to record using those tracks so that’s out the window as I primarily record sets to upload to soundcloud or mixcloud etc.
Anyways I hope someone can help with the first questions, sorry about the rant im a bit miffed after a week with the P4!!
