We did it back in the days on dual decks with oreo size jog wheels, no bpm counters, no sync, no track names even… So come on, this is not that bad. Yes, can be better, but give it time, to evolve. The market will determine the product not a single person.
No offense here, just my observation.
It always looks like You try to force Your right in every product aspect on this forum.
Always it looks like You know better then all engineers behind the product.
Why are You not working in any of the companies that develop stage equipment?
Take it easy, maybe a vacation?
I work in QC and R&D of stage lighting equipment and stage visuals on daily basis, I know how a product development looks like and how hard sometimes is to implement something even software wise.
Denon is listening, thats why we have these products, and thats why we have SC6000’s and X1850.
Be cool with that, let’s try to help them develop, but don’t push too much.
We know what’s on the road map as Jason said: BPM detection improvement, flexible grids, sampler.
Let’s help them make it the best out of it.
