Also it has no mic eq. While every partner and his dog are putting 2×4 performance pads into even the most entry level of controllers, Denon has stuck to more traditional controls, and appears to have left these controls much the same as the previous model, albeit with a bit of a cosmetic reworking, most probably in line with guidelines laid down by Serato. Ins and Outs Firstly, we must cover the incredibly comprehensive microphone controls. Everything is solid and dependable. The only things not fully implemented are filters. Firstly, after a few months, some backliit buttons would dim and flicker never repaired. Quote: Im extremely dissappointed, that it doesnt support the dn mc 6000, but it does the lesser 2000.
There is additional space for cables and small accessories in the back of the unit for convenience, as well as a removable front panel so you can access your inputs easily. Application specific speaker modes let you dial in the system at the push of a button. The sound quality is great though. The build quality is top notch. Using traktor no one i know can get below 10ms latency.
For future interested people having to make a decision: Buy the S4! Anyways horrible service and suicidal marketing. Rearranging stuff, giving a bit airier feel is good. There is a little shoe-horning going on because of the limited space for controls though. Denon claims the audio circuitry has been improved quality-wise, and the unit has been designed so you can play two channels from the external inputs through software if your software allows , in order to record a complete performance straight to hard disk, whether that performance is from software or analogue inputs or a mixture of the two. The only thing missing is a minijack.
. Its apparent you dont understand the way this business works but you're not alone because many others make this same mistake. And given the type of user, I imagine that this is a set and forget feature anyway. So I switched to Cross which has a very good native mapping. Life is way too short to waste time policing comments.
Doesnt make sence to me, very dissappointed. After little over a year and a half I decided Traktor was not for me. Denon had the opportunity to make perfect sense of these features, all I know is that it jars in this still slightly messy layout. That they do no know are they for real? Is it worthy of an upgrade if you own the original? It the unit will not work with serato dj! You also have the option to run Windows on a bootable external FireWire 800 or Thunderbolt drive. Not sure if it really matters once you take it out of the studio and into a live environment so much though, unless you play a venue with really decent specs.
Serato-specific controls As this is now an official Serato controller, there are a whole host of dedicated Serato controls. Are you sure you don't have to have a qualifying product to purchase the Scratch version? Asked the company but they told me 1. Decks The jogwheels, while small, are tight in use and high quality, with no wobble at all. The height adjustment collar has a safety pin for extra security. I had to replace some momentary switches under to hood several times, albeit the ones I pound the most. Note also the full four standalone source inputs. Done a gig in a venue the holds 1800 people, wen it was pushed to its limits the mic became distorted to such an extent that I could not use it.
. They will always be in this position. I had bought this controller for his numerous possibilities of input and mapping. Would not work at the start regardless of what I done. If you do want slicer and more creative options, you could add an iPad with running on it — it would be a great complement to this controller, actually, for the odd gig where it mattered.
. I got mine due to 1. And with an all-new professional enclosure and robust system protection, you can walk into your next gig with confidence. But the biggest feature stripped out is the ability to use the hardware mixer from your software — you are now forced to use software mixing. The rest of the deck controls are laid out identically on both the left and right decks, which I think makes sense. Are we talking about the same thing here? Having 2 mic inputs is a must for weddings ect.
