    The jog wheels can give you a .01% accuracy. Definitely precise enough
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    What do you mean by this. Am i missing a trick, i find it impossible to use the pictch fader for any kind of adjustment but you mention the jogs. Have you come up with some other setting that allows more precise manual beat matching?

    I find the standard DJTechtools mapping plenty good enough for manual beatmatching

    you know I never thought to use the jogs as pitch faders, only benders, perhaps I need to implement a modifier for that purpose, would come in handy for sure!

    Short faders, weird jog wheels. It's certainly possible, but I myself hate it for beatmatching. A lot of folks do it, though.

    +1. The pitch faders for me arent accurate enough to do precision pitch see-sawing or hair-line nudges like a traditional CDJ can. Manual beat matching can be done, although not really ideal.

    Just curious. What do you guys set your pitch to for best/accurate results???
    Often at the clubs I need to beatmatch coming into my first mix from what the last DJ in playing.
