All of it's buttons seam to be just the right size no smal round tiny buttons to search for in a dark booth. The slices can be expanded or crunched with the parameter buttons. The 2 modes are essentially the same, but make for 2 banks of loops.
I had planned an even split between hardware and software, but effects are one area where both areas squarely overlap. I want to finally upgrade my gear and the company I work for is wanting me to go to pioneer cause they say they are better but I am used to numark. Remember techniques they are heavy. My main concern is sound quality, performance and the ability to play 4 channels from a computer. So I'm at the point where I'm financially ready to invest in a high quality controller.

If you change the pitch range when the fader is at 0%, everything is fine. An improved display should help make the overall hands-on experience better.
This is after all a key feature of all-in-ones right?. From a personal perspective, I wish the vinyl extended a few millimetres more beyond the edge of the platter. Each pad has 2 modes as well, giving you double the hit for your cash. We can't guarantee correctness and completeness of all the data presented here, and therefore will not accept liability for any issues arising from usage of this data. But I have to draw a line and around the 4000 word is now drawn. Covering off the basics — there are 2 banks of 3 effects that can be applied to each channel, and each bank can be applied to the master as well.
This is as hi tec as anything out there, as for it being heavy I like that, its a sign of quality. I had some fun with minimal house and tiny slices where I basically made a new bassline from buzzing slices.

The pads get an upgrade that brings them in line with other units. The feedback so far has been positive. That said, and touched on in previous sections, there are a few things that could be fixed.

This is a pretty significant difference and in my opinion, the main deciding factor alongside whether or not you really want the rotating platter as opposed to jog wheels.
The controls continue the high quality theme. These are manual loops though, and not fixed to any grid that I can see. Even the normal Achilles heel of pitch faders are quite sturdy.

Manual loops are stored in the top 4 pads, and the bottom 4 pads define the loops. The line faders get a software curve but no reverse, and the crossfader gets a software reverse, which can also be replicated with crossfader assign switches, which allow each channel to be fixed to either side of the crossfader, or indeed play through. Anyhow, I am buying Pioneer in the next a few days. The navigation section at the top offers a pretty standard experience, and soon had me not reaching for the trackpad.
