Just do the thing he shows us in the first 60 seconds, on a fairly old Pioneer mixer. When we disable the “prime” button on the mixer (for tempo-based FX) allow us to then define the tempo manually (whether the mixer reads from an incoming audio signal, like Pioneer, or whether with the knob) and allow that tempo to LOCK to the session, regardless of our twisting of the FX destination knobs.
Please. It’s in the manual that the mixer can do it. I was told today that Denon was to “change the manual because we made a mistake” and that the mixer would not/should not behave in the way described on page 11 and highlighted in the youtube video below for Pioneer.
My rep is currently testing the Denon X1800 in the factory to see if it behaves as promised/advertised and, on confirmation that it does not - they will generate a return for my mixer. This really ■■■■■ guys, but the device needs to do the things it needs to do.
