So best way I can think of then and My final way of thinking put into perspective !
So here how it goes, We put a set together as a playlist and we also add the track in we want to be linked via player B underneath the track going in player A and the most direct way to link in the software (Could maybe be a right click option) which could be the best way as in the future other features could be added or might you may want an option for !!
(multiple B tracks I will explain in a moment - this would be the best way and will also ensure your sets are not stale S Anderson, not that I think they would with the one B layer it only an extension to save time and make things more accessible).
So anyhow back to the Linking, when we use the link it will then show that B track in the playlist as faded or a dull colour text and that track is locked out from loading manually but only in that one instance and that one playlist should not matter if you want the same B track a few times in the same set the because the linking only applies to that line in the list that you are linking, so best way is to have the browser lines as what links the track that you put on that line ( It will may probably be a two link stage in the coding to achieve that but as I do not code I speculate and leave that to the development team)
Multiple B tracks To Future expand, more or less the same method but obviously the development team would make it so these tracks are loaded in order of which they are listed on the lines in the playlist as its about the line and then the tracks on the lines in the browser although this is where the right click option in the software could come in handy.
If we have say the option of up to 3 B tracks in the second Version after we have tried and tested the Single track linked in a first version then later it could evolve to maybe up to 8 linked although their would have to be another way as visually the 8 would hog any view of the actual playlist itself/ the A tracks / full tracks, so an option to hide the B tracks or just show the first 3 or what ever you wish, all customisable you See all via the right click option, Now with these number B tracks and us now having the option of more B tracks we could have a feature similar to the clips follow action in ableton live I guess you can see that advantage now I hope and ( no stale their Mr Anderson and the whole system is quite flexible providing the Development team can eventually achieve so you could switch off maybe so the playlist reverts to its A player playlist state, I mean more detail and such things like this are all doable if needed at all, something that needs to be thought about in a little more detail as the development teams Progress and can see any little flaws that may need addressing so as not to effect any standard methods users prefer)
Now to address the hardware which is most important for me but hay maybe start with the software and expand the idea to the hardware as it evolves as its all about screen space on the players, I get that! , overall most I would imagine is still doable the same way and as I pre mentioned this system would/could be customised by a user for the views and what he wants to see in the playlist etc, so this would be best as a whole new screen to flick to as we get a set together on the players (That what I want independents from software if one wishes or as near as hardware development team can achieve to independence) this new screen page also including what would have been the right click options in the software you see how this can take shape this system call it what you want Denon.
Now still talking about the hardware, maybe this system at its full will have to be on a mark2 player so we could add a few extra controls or/and labelling, Because the Icing on the cake this is how it goes?
We can load our track in player A And if linked it will load the First track in the line of linked player B tracks (Or later versions what ever the follow type action/behaviour dictates) the usual hardware controls /method obviously.
we then need to set up a method of scrolling/loading these tracks in the line Obviously we are not using follow type action in the same way as ableton automatically switching from clips clip
(in our case loop to loop)
Instead its as we use our hardware control gestures it up to us to click/push/etc to send it onto to the next in line.
so as we evolve the hardware may need a mark two, although I guess we could do the best part if not all via the current controls (a loop jumping type drum/sample/follow grid view could be awesome so in essence we are turning player B into a mean lean sampling machine which could also then in the future go onto saving sample sets / chopping the samples out into another folder as sets that we could then refer to in setting up future sets)
So control methods are subjectable although needs to be a simple click or hold down a button or pad or a screen system as I just mentioned would be ultimate but keeping it simple also in the first instance and early evolution a basic Control triggering method to switch/scroll and load player b track line, hold down a button or pad/ shift or ? and again push load and each time it jumps/loads through the B track list awesome and thus you can evolve the system into other area I mention with various methods of doing things and alter down the lane it can evolve and be part of the sampling/sampler system.
I see these players as the ultimate all in one players the new standard that all pros will jump too those that want and need to stand out without the hassles of a separate sampler if such a system is evolved and done uniquely as this, okay their are similarities to some standard dj systems but nothing also hardware based that can come close, its about taking full control of your Djing being flexible so as to be Unique, other little things can evolve within this systems to perfect it (after time as we build our own personal dj sets to pull from on the fly etc and just have fun trying to be the best we can if that is your thing, nothing stale here and a whole lot of time saved to concentrate our efforts to being unique or just dam good at what we do, its all about the music a reason why I don’t overly bother about the sync stigma these days as we are in a new stage and if its left to the usual makers of dj gear it will be all fads or going no where , but instead I see an opportunity for Denon who I love based on past equipment to make money and make a lot but without ripping us off like you know who making us think we want something to only find out it goes no where much past where we were years ago, Think big think practical or go home, I can see how you can make money in quite a few ways but without taking advantage because we can get what we want, one future suggestion maybe have the new Drum sampler type screen as a paid add on, once we get a taste off the early parts of the systems 1-3 B tracks lines off course we will pay for the full system or advancements (Okay maybe a mark2 because of other things as well) but beyond getting that perfected or if this can be done in mark1’s or part of this system , your customers will have a jubilee at not having to keep buying or feeling Ripped off my the evil marketing campaigns releasing one after another its plain wrong, although with some concession on you making money on a mark2 that understandable and fair unlike Pioneer their I said it pioneer blackmailing and stagnating our Creativity ) you can destroy them and make it accessible to most people based on your fair pricing we see now so the many marketing ideas can be fair but very profitable. If you like you may want to remove/hide my last few post to hide this before it gets out !! It all seems correct to my way of thinking, Lets break away Denon and nothing will affect standard users.
Thanks for listening excuse any typos etc its a lot to get out of my head without ordered notes.
