Various XDJ-RX Improvement Suggestions

 Hello, 

I don't know if Pioneer still has interest in improving the XDJ-RX, but guys this nice piece of hardware can do sooo much more. Below are various requests/suggestions. I hope I am not flying too high with this:)

+8 HotCues
ONE WAY TO DO:
-We have dedicated delete button don't waste the shift button
-Enter Hot Cue mode
-delete+button 1-4 delete hotcue1-4
-button 1-4 like default
-shift+button 1-4> hotcue5-8
-delete+shift+button 1-4> delete hotcue5-8
ANOTHER WAY TO DO:
-In Hotcue mode buttons 1-4 jump hotcue 1-4, shift + button 1-4 delete hotcue 1-4 (factory default)
-Pressing Hotcue button again in hotcue mode; Hot Cue button LED flashes, button 1-4 jump hotcue 5-8, shift + button 1-4 delete hotcue 5-8, pressing the Hot Cue button again returns to normal Hot Cue mode.

+Slip Mode Hotcue Behavior
-- In slip mode, keeping the hot cue pressed only lets play a bar maximum. Put in menu option to choose play 1 bar /play as long as hotcue is pressed (also remove minimum 1 beat limit)

+Beat jump
ONE WAY TO DO:
-Activate Auto Beat Loop and then press Auto Beat Loop button again; Auto Beat Loop button LED flashes, button 1-4 beat jump 1/2/4/8 forward, shift+button 1-4 beat jump 1/2/4/8 backward, pressing Auto Beat Loop button again returns to normal Auto Beat Loop mode

ANOTHER WAY TO DO:
-Activate Auto Beat Loop and then press Auto Beat Loop button again; Auto Beat Loop button LED flashes, button 1-4 set size to 0.25/0.5/1/2, shift + button 1-4 set size to 4/8/16/32
-Track Search or Search buttons jump forward or backward

+Loop move 
ONE WAY TO DO:
--shift+"loop double" (right arrow key)> move loop forward 1 bar/loop size (put option to choose size in menu)
--shift+"loop half" (left arrow key)> move loop backward 1 bar/loop size (put option to choose size in menu)

ANOTHER WAY TO DO:
-Enter Loop Slice Mode,and press Loop Slice again; Loop Slice button LED flashes, button 1-4 move loop 1/2/4/8 beat forward, shift+button 1-4 move loop 1/2/4/8 backward, pressing Loop Slice again returns to default Loop Slice mode

AND ANOTHER WAY TO DO:
-Enter Loop Slice Mode,and press Loop Slice again; Loop Slice button LED flashes, button 1-4 set size to 0.25/0.5/1/2, shift + button 1-4 set size to 4/8/16/32
-Track Search or Search buttons move forward or backward

+Hotcue type play/cue on stopped deck
--put in menu option to choose whether hotcue starts playback or only jumps to cue point and plays as long as cue button is pressed when deck is stopped

+Duplicate Track via menu option
-put option in track info menu to choose "copy to 1/2" function

+Searching enhancements
-I would like to have filtering rather than searching
-enable filtering by multiple parameters like genre+bpm, key+genre+bpm, genre and search characters etc.
-even if filtering is not possible enhance searh results. Show results just like normal lists by allowing sorting options on search results.
- if in Recordbox i choose 'goes well with xxx' for one track show me in the track Info menu the count of the marked songs and if I push the rotary know on this line open a browse window (filtered) showing the songs ONLY THAT I MARKED as 'goes well with'.

+Browse Enhancements
-Looped Browse Scrolling, after reaching end scrolling loops back to beginning of list and vice versa

+Add More Recordbox prep features on the fly
-in grid edit mode or in "cue/loop list" screen when cued on hotcue/memory point
put option in sub menu to change current cue point style to loop cue point, auto loop cue point
-allow changing genre (even write comments if possible) like changing rating in the track Info menu
