I’m cueing up the beginning of the track to set a cue marker, while the track is stop. I’m listening for the first sound of audio and I move back a slight turn. Set my cue marker. I have a habit of moving the side of the jog wheel to pin point where to place the cue, but there is no audio while the track is moving. Man, that throws me off thinking something is wrong. I have to catch myself and remember I’m not touching the top of the jog wheel to hear the audio, while the track is moving. This is not a problem for me. It’s just something I have to remember.
Another is even though I own controllers like the Numark NS7ii and Traktor S8. I have to remember what pad mode I’m in on sc5000, between cue mode or loop mode. Lights are low and I’m jamming. On the fly I decides to set a cue marker or set a loop marker. I like to set my loop marker by pressing one of the 8 pads at the start of the loop and pressing the same pad at the end of the loop. This way save time or steps, of using the loop function of the deck and remember what the loop length I’m on. Because I sometimes, use the loop function of the deck for quick short stutter loops to transition my blend from one track to another. Like a echo out effect.
Any who, I have to pay close attention to what pad mode I’m on, because there been times, when I want to set a loop and I set a cue marker and times when I want to set a cue marker, I mess around and start a loop. Still building up my memory muscles on these decks.
