Now A happy owner of a Pioneer DDJ SX only 1 month after I ordered it
congrats, one month later im still on back order. bah.
Would love to see or hear any word on guys using TTs or CDJs with this beast.
Numark NS7 + NSFX
Ableton Live 8
I used the DDJ-SX with the Traktor Audio 6 soundcard (3 Channels) + X1 as an analog mixer and it works mighty fine!
the filters work great too on each channel!
Finally got it today - fantastic.
Not really getting the complaints that it's cramped, the thing is huge, I'm 6'3" pushing 280, I'm a big dude, and really not having any trouble with accidental nudges.
Enjoy, man. I think my ear infection is starting to go away……it's been like a week since I've been able to hear out of both ears, and the thing is sitting here taunting me.
disappointed that the soundcards inputs arent discrete, it all gets lumped into one stereo channel. ive got to stop procrastinating on getting a better soundcard for production.
i think its interesting that in 2 channel mode, the other two channels are still fully functional. seems like one of those things some might find useful, but not notice as its not too obvious.
The only thing that bugs me about it is that putting the software in 2-deck mode uses the same channels that have phono preamps……so the way I want to use it eventually (2 channels of software + 2 channels of vinyl) means I'm going to be wasting like 1/3 of my screen with decks that will never see use like that.
I think that's a serious oversight, but in reality it probably won't matter. I'll probably end up using channels 1&2 as software/vinyl using the switches on the front, plus an input from another sound card running Maschine and a channel open for other stuff.
and in regards to what you were saying mostapha - they should hopefully in later updates realize that does totally screw with your ability to use this as a centerpiece for software and vinyl.
curious to ask, hows it going with mixing maschine with djing? i for the life of me just cant integrate my drum machine setup with a dj setup, as far as bringing in my own written stuff it just feels more natural to render it to audio and throw it in my serato library.
The only thing that really worries me is whether or not I'll be happy switching b/t MIDI and Maschine modes for the controller to get at Live's tempo controls. Part of me hops that they'll release a Maschine update that gives it pitch bend buttons before I get around to it. But that would be NI doing something useful for the way people use their software as oppose to the way they pretend people use it…so I don't see it happening.
