FXs on X1800 -how do you like them?


Hi Guys,

I am new to the X1800 (and denon). I have always used Pioneer mixers so still going through an adjustment period you could say which brings me to my comment & question.

I am not really digging the FX on the X1800 all that much. The Echo is not clean enough for me, sounds too busy. The reverb is too strong also for my taste. The Flanger is either too weak or when you turn the dial to increase wetness, it gets too strong; just have not found that “sweet spot” I always had with my previous mixers. The Gate is to useless in my opinion.

I love my setup so don’t take this the wrong way, I just want to hear your thoughts and advise on the topic; especially if you have moved from DJMs like me. I think all my concerns are easily able to be addressed with future firmware updates but I don’t know if it’s just my taste, my experience or ears that need to adjust to this.

Looking forward to your comments and feedbacks.

Cheers, Shain

P.S. I know about the parameter option and have played around with it to get the sounds I like out of the FX. My comment is more general with the FX I normally used and like to use.
