Pioneer why did everything need to be so complex? the perfect cdj 850 would have had the waveform reading capability of the 1000 mk3s, and on top of that been usb compatible.(preferably also rekordbox compatible but even that isn't necessary) everything else is pointless. If I wanted a midi controller I would have bought one, not a cdj, what is the point of a loop function that doesn't set perfect loops!!, I dont even use it because If I set it by hand at least it has a chance to be close to perfect. The worst part is that the 2000s have a perfect 4 bar loop function come on. pioneer had such a great foundation with the 1000 mk3s, If u have something that works great why not improve upon that rather than scrap it and go for flashy functions that are in rendered pointless because they weren't designed properly. I know this is a cdj 850 forum but while im at it, why the hell does rekordbox not have a cd burning function, that might be the dumbest thing ever. a company that makes cdjs designes a software that cant make cds. absolutely brilliant. Strong suggestion, cdj 1000 mk4s with nothing changed from the 3s besides usb capability. with the right price that would be the most popular product you guys have ever made.
