having played with the X1800 I loved the sound and the settings (especially the parametric EQ!) I have found the effects unit to be lacking and the effects selection a little outdated, though.
Is it possible to add new effects via a firmware update (Vinyl Brake, Tape Delay, Spiral, etc.) And is it possible to tweak existing effects (flanger and phaser come to mind) so they sound better - aka more Pioneer-ish?
Also I wanted to suggest to give users a way to extend the values of the touch strip to 16 and 32 (e.g. by holding Instant and turning the FX Time knob) cause certain effects (again, flanger and phaser) sound better with higher values.
