Ok, my experience after one day i bought the set,…THIS IS NOT USABLE THE PLAY ON GIGS! Ok, step 2 i m angry, watched a lot of reviews, everybody saying this is perfect…
Bought a complete set, put my usb (rekordbox stick in the player and then i put the stick on the pc to analyse all the songs. So far so good…
all tracks are bought on traxsource or beatport, on pioneer cdj (nexus2, RX) all worked flawless).
Crazy tempo issues, (track on 124 bpm, goes faster or slower is not stable. per track different behaviour.
Pioneer easy thing, if you have not a lot of time for sync, you press ‘sync on’ (on slave player) and then 1 sec later off. beat goes in sync and stays in sync. DENON, sync is slow, and if it syncs it is not stable. (quantize on or off no difference).
beat grid issues, on the downbeat (bassdrum), not allways same behaviour, some tracks it works, some tracks the grid is off. you have to correct it and then still not stable
x1800, sometimes it happens, you listen to ch2 on the cue. you can here the master cue through your headphones, even if you turn the master-cue knob completly to que, still happens. you have to power off the x1800, then power it on then it works normal as expected.
everytime you start up with the same stick it asks if it need to load the settings from the stick, make it remember, no everytime i startup i have to say YES load the settings. same stick, same set, different day. annoying.
But the most annoying thing (and there for not usable on gigs is that there are strange tempo issues, on pioneer works great, same tracks, on denon it does not stay on 124 of 125 bpm…it goes faster …or slower. the set is not usable, and not stable!!
i m terrible disappointed 3600 euros gone and i cant use it, reanalyzed a few times, made changes in the windows prime engine settings for the sc5000 controller…with, without quantize, sync or no sync it is not stable.
