Hi friendly people of the Denon Community!
Iam a Vinyl and Media DJ and enjoyed having the oppportunity to play Mediafiles without loosing the Vinyl-feeling since the Denon SC 3700. Now Iam strongly thinking about buying two SC6000M.
But i still got questionmarks above my head about the thing which is the most important for me (besides the great Vinyl feeling cause of the fine controls and motor in the player): How much is a Laptop/PC still needed to use those mediaplayers? What i mean is, can i move files (lets say from crates or playlists or folders on the player) from the players HDD to a USB-stick which also is in the player?
I want to use a PC as less as possible - just as i did and do it with Vinyls: working with tracks on the actual device, hearing and feeling them, with at least some visual feedback like with Vinyl to remember them, and in the end deciding which ones i want to use on my gig, …instead of organising files on a laptop screen. In the best scenario, i want to just buy tracks or make own samples (therefor i can’t avoid the PC), connect the PC once with the mediaplayer, move all bought files or own samples to the HDD in the player and then simply work with the player. I want to work with the player at home, and if i have a gig or going on tour just plug a USB-stick into the player, switch my finger on the screen to simply copy all (or a few) tracks of this or that crate (or this playlist or whatever) onto the USB stick, plug this out and iam ready to go, i got all tracks on the stick. (Sidenote: maybe with all the tags, cues, loop points and so on from engine, all the information i added when i was working and playing with them on the player at home. But i dont care about that so much, of couase this would be even a better feature, but i would be thankful if only the simple datamanagment can be done on the player itself, i simply need a selection of tracks on my USB sticks, cause Pioneer gear isn’t able to read the engine informations and at this point they still are standard in the clubs, unfortunately).
Is this possible?
The HDD in the player is one of the game-changers Denon has offered here. But the whole idea would be stucked in the middle if my question is answered with a “No.”. I hope you get a little bit what i mean, and sorry for my bad english.
I also would love the announced somehow not announced controller for the SC6000/M. As this would take advantage of the other special thing Denon realized in these devices: the layers. But getting it to the next level as you don’t need two big screens but all the track controlls. Especially for people like me this would be a dream, a cheap way to double your players, by still providing the best of it: the controller/vinyl feeling, focusing of what should be the most important: perform as a DJ (and not disturbing me, the whole floor and audience by looking on a screen). So, will those “controllers” be reality any time?
Thanks in advance for your answers!
