Hi there! I have been putting in a ton of hours on my sc5000 players and x1800 mixer. I have also been letting every DJ in my city use them side by side with Pioneer 2000 NXS2 players, and everyone (including dubstep, house, D&B, and vinyl hip hop djs) thus far has agreed that the sc5000 players are far superior to CDJs.
However, there have been two gripes that everyone has had. Pioneer cdjs have a line based beatmatching phase meter that allows for easy visual beatmatching (ive attached a picture). I use headphones so its not a big gripe for me, but every dubstep dj (haha they cant mix by ear) has complained that the “bubble” based beatmatching meter is not easy to use. All jokes aside I do use the phase meter a lot when mixing music like dubstep and I would like to see a line based one introduced in the future if possible.
Another question I have is, is it possible to unload a track from any of the layers on the player? i haven’t) been able to figure it out if it is possible and it would be nice just to de clutter the screen when you are done using the second layer, once again just a small gripe but it would be nice to see it implemented.
