DDJ-SX - Platter / Jog Wheel concerns and questions
posted this on January 16, 2013 20:27
I've just placed an order for the DDJ-SX......it's expected to arrive on the 10th feb due to the high demand so congrats on that Pioneer.
However, I'm having some second thoughts about the unit after reading into some common complaints and was wondering if someone at Pioneer could help calm my fears?
Firstly, a number of people seem to be having multiple issues with the platters (platters becoming unresponsive, unrealistic spinback response in vinyl mode, general reliability issues). I know there is a sensitivity adjustment knob for the jog wheels, but in some of the instances I have seen this hasn't been effective. Is there now a confirmed known issue here that can be fixed with a firmware update or is this simply an issue with the capacitive touch technology used?
Also, if it gets hot and sweaty in a club.....which it always does :-) Will the capacitive touch performance be affected like it is on say an iPad if your fingers are sweaty/wet?
I also have concerns about using the DDJ-Sx in different environments as I assume this will also affect the response of the jog wheels?
Any information/science insight is much appreciated!
Aside from these concerns I am already very impressed with what I've seen. It looks like a great controller.
