Echo Hold If that is what I hope it is then I’m a happy camper. It’s my most used effect on Traktor.

I am getting this when I try and run it on Win 10 X64 I have tried two different PC’s


Ok… what was the purpose of that action please Denon DJ ?

minor cosmetic thing if the updater is started without the x1800 connected, it reports that it will update to version 1.0.0. Once the X1800 is connected it reported correctly (from 1.2.0 to 1.3.0 in my case)

Had no problems here with latest Windows10 x64 version 2004.


Sorry for the trouble. Looking into this now.

It was removed from 96kHz because of DSP limitations. Stability is our number 1 focus.

This is expected. There are two parts to the update process:

  1. XMOS USB Updater. This has not changed so, that component is up to date.
  2. STM/DSP Updater.

Just tried it on two other machines on a different internet connections and with different AV, firewalls etc, same thing its possibly a CDN issue, you got served it from a different mirror or something?

Awesome for this one!!

Definitely a different source. :relaxed:

The Windows version in the zip is smaller than it’s supposed to be > @JWiLL


Yeah it should be about 37MB not 22MB. Let’s wait for confirm and reupload.

So what are differences because I bought the x1850 two weeks ago. If they’re identical then what was the point of releasing the X1850? Can someone help me understand what I am missing?

Awesome! Thanks for letting us know and confirming the new file resolved the issue :raised_hands:t3:

The X1850 looks a bit nicer to match the new SC6000’s and has a locking power cable
